The inaugural season of the Lanka Premier League is more than halfway and we know for sure who three out of the four semi-finalists are going to be. The fourth spot is yet to be decided but there is a clear gap between the top-3 and the remaining two.
The two teams playing this match sit in the top-3 of the LPL 2020 league table right now. The Jaffna Stallions and Dambulla Viiking both have four wins from five matches and are separated only by net run-rate.
This contest between them could well be one that we witness again in a semi-final or even the LPL 2020 Final later one.
Jaffna Stallions vs Dambulla Viiking LPL 2020 is going to be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 7th of December 2020.
The Jaffna Stallions finally lost a match in the Lanka Premier League as they went down to the Colombo Kings in their previous match. The signs were there as the batting had been faltering in the recent matches.
Thisara Perera and Avishka Fernando were helping the Stallions perform better than they should have and that is never going to last for a very long time.
Now, the Jaffna Stallions must find a way to provide its best players some more support. The likes of Shoaib Malik, Minod Bhanuka, and Dhananjaya de Silva need to step up. The addition of Johnson Charles at the top of the order is a good one and we believe he can be really destructive in upcoming matches.
The Jaffna Stallions changed up its bowling lineup for the previous match, perhaps to try and test its squad out a bit. That is the only reason why we can think off for Duanne Olivier not playing.
Kyle Abbott, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, and the young spinner Vijaykanth Viyaskanth all are pretty decent bowlers.
Avishka Fernando, Johnson Charles, Minod Bhanuka, Shoaib Malik, Thisara Perera, Wanidu Hasaranga, Charith Asalanka, Usman Khan, Suranga Lakmal, Duanne Olivier, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth.
Dambulla Viiking flexed its batting muscles in the previous match as it scored 207 for the loss of four wickets. Upul Tharanga continued his good run while Niroashan Dickwella and Dasun Shanaka also batted very well.
These three are the heart of the batting for Dambulla Viiking and while they may not always bat in the top-3, they will always look to take responsibility for the situation.
We have seen some very good performances from Samit Patel as well and so the batting looks to be in good hands.
Like the Jaffna Stallions, Dambulla Viiking also changed its bowling attack around a bit to give some of its squad a run. Anwar Ali, Kasun Rajitha, and Dasun Shanaka were the best bowlers on the night as Dambulla Viiking managed to win by just seven runs in the end.
Niroshan Dickwella, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dasun Shanaka, Samit Patel, Angelo Perera, Ramesh Mendis, PM Pushpakumara, Samiullah Shenwari, L Madhushanka, Anwar Ali, Kasun Rajitha.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first although we have seen in the Lanka Premier League 2020 edition so far that the toss has not had a huge bearing on the eventual result.

The conditions have remained batting friendly for the entire duration of the LPL and we have no reason to believe that will change. The pitch has got a bit slower but that is understandable with the number of matches being played on it in succession.
The rain has stayed away and hopefully that will continue although the forecast dies suggest some showers in the area.
We think the Jaffna Stallions should be able to win this match and get back to winning ways. There is an inherent risk in this match for bettors that they should be aware of. Both the teams have already qualified and so this result really does not matter in any way. We could see unexpected team selections or batting order changes just to try things out.
