JK vs CS Preview:
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz comes into the tournament with some fine performances in Zim Afro T10 League. He is one of the tournament’s best batters with 625 runs. Back him as Jaffna’s top batter.
- A lot will rest on the shoulders of Babar Azam and Colombo Strikers will need him to fire against a quality Jaffna Attack. Babar can be backed as Colombo Strikers’ top batter.
- Matheesha Pathirana had a great run in IPL 2023. He usually bowls at death where chances of getting wickets are high. Back him to be Colombo Strikers’ top bowler.
TV Channels: The tournament will be available on Star Sports 3 in India.
Live Streaming: Live streaming of the match will be available on the Fancode app and website.
Weather & Pitch Report:
It will be a cloudy day with a 20 per cent chance of rain. The temperature will range between 31 and 27 degrees.
The pitch should be a typical Lanka wicket where there is some movement with the new balls while spinners come into play when the ball gets soft. The wicket does not have much turn, but lack of pace can help the slower bowers. Once a batter is set, plenty of runs are to be taken.
Both teams would look to win toss and chase which has been the tried and tested method in LPL. Also, this is the first game so teams would want to see how the pitch will behave.
JK vs CS Team NEWS:
JK Team News:
A few players like Rahmanullah Gurbaz and David Miller were part of the other franchise leagues. While Gurbaz is expected to join the team as his team, Cape Town Samp Army, in Zim Afro T10 League is knocked out of the race, David Miller is featuring for Texas Super Kings and will miss the game.
CS Team News:
Colombo Strikers have named Niroshan Dickwella as the team’s captain for LPL 2023. The move has not gone too well with a few fans as they feel Babar Azam should have been appointed as captain. However, the move can be inspired by the fact that Babar Azam won’t be available for the full season.

JK vs CS Team Combo:
JK Team Info –
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Nishan Madushka will probably open the inning.

- Shoaib Malik and David Miller will handle the middle-order batting.
- Thisara Perera will lead the Jaffna kings as a Captain. He is also a good All-Rounder
- Nishan Madushka will do the Wicket Keeping for Jaffna kings.
- Maheesh Theekshana and Dunith Wellalage will take care of the spin bowling of his team.
- Zaman- Khan and Vijayakanth Viyaskanth will lead the pace attack of his team.
CS Team Info –
- Babar Azam and Pathum Nissanka will probably open the inning.
- Niroshan Dickwella will bat at the one-down position. He is the backbone of the batting team.
- Angelo Perera and Iftikhar Ahmed will handle the middle-order batting.
- Babar Azam will lead the Colombo Stars as a Captain. He is also a good Batsman
- Niroshan Dickwella will do the Wicket Keeping for Colombo Stars.
- Jeffrey Vandersay will take care of the spin bowling of the team.
- Naseem Shah and Wahab Riaz will lead the pace attack of his team.
Jaffna Kings will start the match as favourites. They are the defending champions and have defeated Colombo Strikers in the last five games. Kings have a strong batting lineup that is backed by a good attack.
Colombo Strikers are a good team too and reached the final last year. But if Babar Azam does not come well, players like Dickwella and Pathum Nissanka have not played much in the buildup. Also, Iftikhar did not have a great outing in T10 League. Jaffna Kings are thus favorites for us.
JK vs CS Key Players:
Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be a key player for the side. He is tournament’s one of the best performer with over 600 runs. Gurbaz comes into the tournament on the back of a top run in the Zim Afro T10 League.
Thisara Perera has scored 550 runs in the LPL and is the tournament’s sixth-highest run-scorer. He is also handy with the ball and has played a significant role in leading the team to three title wins.
The ace spinner is one of the best in the world and has experience of featuring in multiple franchise leagues. Theekshana is the fourth-highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 26 scalps.
The talismanic Pakistan captain will have a huge role to play for Colombo Strikers. Babar Azam needs to introduction and is one of the most consistent batters in this format of the game.
Iftikhar brings in a huge amount of experience in this format of the game. The batter has over 4300 in T20 matches at an average of nearly 30 and a strike rate of over 128. Iftikhar will be a key batter in the middle order and will be responsible for giving the team a strong finish.
You know a bowler is talented when he is backed by MS Dhoni. Pathirana has learned a lot from Dhoni during his stint with CSK in LPL and he will be a weapon for Colombo in the LPL.
