The Colombo Stars will lock horns with the Jaffna Kings in Match 10 of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2022 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Monday, December 12. The Stars have so far got off to a decent start in the competition with a win and a loss from the two matches and they occupy the third position in the points table at an NRR of -2.5.
Colombo’s net run rate has gone into the negative due to a heavy 109-run defeat against the Kandy Falcons in their opening fixture and now, they must register convincing wins from here on to make up for it. On the other hand, the defending champions Jaffna Kings have also been impressive so far with two victories and a defeat in the three games. They have four points at a net run rate of 0.927.
The title-holders will be heading into this contest on the back of a three-wicket defeat to the Kandy Falcons in a final ball thriller. Jaffna Kings are scheduled to play back-to-back matches in a span of three days and they will be in action against Dambulla Aura on Sunday, December 11.
