Kandy Warriors (KW) will face Jaffna Kings (JK) in the seventh match of Lanka Premier League 2021 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Wednesday, December 8.
KW vs JK Dream11 prediction
Jaffna Kings have won and lost a match each out of their first two outings while Kandy Warriors suffered a defeat in their opening match.
JK are tipped to win this contest on account of the depth they have in their batting and all-round departments as opposed to Kandy Warriors who are yet to settle on their team combination yet.
KW vs JK Dream11 team tips for Lanka Premier League 2021
Top Tip: Best batter
Rovman Powell is the batter to watch out for in the KW setup. The attacking batter had a successful Abu Dhabi T10 campaign and started Lanka Premier League 2021 with a quickfire 21-ball 42 against Dambulla Giants. His form will be crucial for his team to impose their dominance in the tournament.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Jayden Seales started the tournament in fine fashion for JK with a haul of 3/23 in the first match against Galle Gladiators. Though he didn’t end up on the winning side, the 20-year-old bounced back to help his side win their second match and will be eager to produce another solid performance as he looks to add to his five scalps in the tournament so far.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Wanindu Hasaranga is the perfect all-round pick for this contest. The JK player took 2/30 in his four overs against Galle Gladiators in the opening match of the tournament and is also capable of producing match-winning cameos with the bat. He is going through a fine run of form as he demonstrated during Abu Dhabi T10 and fantasy players should ideally have him in their team.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz of JK is a good choice for the wicket-keeping department in this match. The Afghan gloveman is quite efficient behind the stumps and is dangerous with the bat at the top of the order. Available at 8.5 credits, he is definitely a match-winning option for his team and smart choice for fantasy players to go with.
KW vs JK probable playing XI
KW playing XI (probable): Kennar Lewis, Devon Thomas (wicket-keeper), Charith Asalanka, Angelo Perera (captain), Kamindu Mendis, Rovman Powell, Asela Gunaratne, Ishan Jayaratne, Sachindu Colombage, Lahiru Kumara, Al-Amin Hossain
JK playing XI (probable): Upul Tharanga, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wicket-keeper), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Avishka Fernando, Shoaib Malik, Thisara Perera (captain), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chaturanga de Silva, Suranga Lakmal, Mahesh Theekshana, Jayden Seales
