KDT vs JST Match & Analysis

Galle Gladiators finally registered their first win of the tournament and that brought a bit of excitement and seemed to be getting a little boring as far as qualification scenarios are concerned. While the other teams seem to be in a pretty good position, there is a tussle between Galle Gladiators and Kandy Tuskers to occupy and retain that fourth spot on the points table. Considering that, the upcoming matches of both the sides are going to be of significant importance.

Kandy Tuskers are set to take on Jaffna Stallions in an important fixture, which will be played at Mahinda Rajapaksha International Cricket Stadium on 9th December 2020. Given the way Jaffna Stallions have played in the tournament so far, things will not be easy for the Tuskers.

KDT vs JST Team Previews

Kandy Tuskers

Kandy Tuskers have been competing hard to finish at the bottom of the table. At least that is what their form suggests. They have won just one game out of six and are placed at the bottom of the ladder, thanks to their poor net run-rate of -0.871.

Their most recent defeat summed up the kind of campaign they have had so far. Batting first on an excellent batting surface, they managed to put only 105 runs on the board. On paper, they have a decent batting unit, but lack of collective effort has hurt them so far. It was Kusal Perera and Rahmanullah Gurbaz at the beginning of the tournament, but almost everyone's form has faded as the tournament has progressed. Barring Rahumanullah Gurbaz, the young gun from Afghanistan, no batsmen has performed consistently for them and that has been their major problem.

Even when the batsmen have fired for the Tuskers, their bowlers have failed to deliver. It was the case in Tusker's opening match and has been happening consistently. They lack wicket-taking bowling options and that could hurt them in the upcoming match as well. If they are able to bowl well on Wednesday, their batting certainly has enough firepower to take them to a much-needed win. Otherwise, it is going to get extremely difficult for them to topple high-flying Jaffna Stallions.

Jaffna Stallions

Jaffna Stallions have undoubtedly been one of the better-performing sides of the tournament and their position on the points table reflects that. Currently, they are leading the points table with four wins in six matches. While the Viikings have also registered four wins, the dominance of Stallions is illustrated by their superb net run-rate of 1.243.

The Stallions are already certain of a playoff spot and are likely to experiment a bit going forward. As is in the news, Dhananjaya De Silva will continue to sit out owing to his bowling form. Even without him, the Stallions appear to be having a terrific side on paper. The presence of Thisara Perera in the lower order add depth to their team without compromising on the bowling front. Also, they have plenty of experience in Johnson Charles, Shoaib Malik, and Perera and that could prove to be a crucial factor in crunch situations.

With the ball as well, the Stallions look pretty well-balanced. Wanindu Hasaranga was terrific in the previous match and would want to continue to build on this form. With a pace battery consisting of Usman Shinwari, Suranga Lakmal, and Duanne Olivier, hitting Stallions out of the park in the back could be a colossal task for any batting unit.

All in all, the momentum and on-paper strength are in favor of the Stallions, and getting past them will be difficult. We expect them to field a slightly changed team and that might well open up a few opportunities for the Kandy Tuskers.

KDT vs JST Betting Tips

It is an important match for both sides, albeit for different reasons. While Kandy Tuskers need to register a win to stay ahead of Galle Gladiators, the Stallions would want to win this and maintain their supremacy. The two teams have had opposite fate so far and getting back to winning ways is going to take a colossal effort for the Tuskers. Considering that and the on-paper combinations of the two teams, Jaffna Stallions are expected to cruise to yet another win in this tournament.
