Pre-Match Analysis:

Kandy Falcons have played to their true potential throughout this tournament and finished at the top of the standings with 14 points. Andre Fletcher was rested in their previous game against Dambulla Aura and still came out on top by 39 runs. They didn’t field full fledge side in the last 2 matches as they gave chances for their fringe players. Carlos Brathwaite has featured in only 6 matches in this tournament and bagged 15 wickets. Wanindu Hasaranga has marshaled the troops quite well. Considering their current form they are likely to qualify directly for the finals.

Jaffna Kings did an incredible job to finish in the top 2 of the standings. They ended their league phase with back-to-back wins over Galle Gladiators and Colombo Stars. The openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Avishka Fernando have been brilliant for them in this tournament. The duo has added more than 470 runs between them. James Fuller, Maheesh Theekshana, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, and Binura Fernando will form the bowling department. They have lost to Kandy Falcons on both occasions earlier in this tournament and its the perfect opportunity to avenge their previous losses.
