The table topper Kandy Falcons is all set to take on defending champions Jaffna Kings in match 6 of the Lanka Premier League at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. Both teams are currently unbeaten in the tournament and thus, the fans can expect a scintillating clash on Saturday, December 10.
The Falcons in their last match defeated the Galle Galdiators by five wickets as Caribbean all-rounder Carlos Braithwaite absolutely decimated them with the ball. The 34-year-old picked up 4 wickets and gave away just 14 runs in his four overs. Batting second, Kamindu Mendis looked clinical as his 44 from 34 deliveries helped the team cross the barrier.
Coming to the Kings, the Thisara Perera-led side were phenomenal in the last match against Dambulla Aura. Both the openers Sadeera Samarawickrama and Avishka Fernando scored a half-century as Jaffna won the match by 9 wickets. With the ball, Maheesh Theekshana and Vijayakanth Viyaskanth picked up three wickets each to dismantle the batting line-up of Dambulla.
