The 8Th The Lanka Premier League League match will be played between the Jaffna Stallions and Candy Tuskers at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, Soriawave, Hambantota.
The match is scheduled to start at 08:00 PM local time and IST. The match will be telecasted on Sony Six.
While it is in the early stage of the competition, if fans are asked to choose a favorite to lift the title, many will opt for the Jaffna rallies. He started his campaign with a win over Galle Gladiators, where his batting unit showed its firepower. In his second game, he absolutely bulldozed Dambulla Viking.
Therefore, they are the obvious favorites to come into the game. However, it would be foolish to discount candy tuskers. Although they lost their first two games, both were extremely important. The first over went to super over, while the second was decided by the D / L method. After winning their last game, they will have confidence in their side.
