KF vs JK LPL 2022: The 6th match of the Sri Lanka Premier League 2022 sees Kandy Falcons take on Jaffna Kings on Friday at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. Both teams have made a sensational start to their respective campaigns, having won two matches each.

Jaffna Kings are coming into this encounter on the back of a 9-wicket win over Dambulla Giants. The Kings restricted Giants to just 121 runs in the first innings. M Theekshana was brilliant in the powerplay as well as in the middle overs. He made exceptional bowling returns of 3 for 20 in 4 overs.

V Vijayskanth also showed a glimpse of his potential, claiming 3 wickets for 24 runs in 4 overs.

In reply, Jaffna Kings chased down the score in just 15.4 overs, owing to a sensational opening partnership between Avishka Fernando and Sadeera Samarawickram. The duo forged a 118-run partnership for the opening wicket to set up a comfortable win.

Fernando amassed 51 runs in 49 balls, while Samawickrama played an unbeaten knock of 62 runs in 44 balls. Heading into the next game, the Kings would be looking to continue the winning momentum.

Facing them are Kandy Falcons, who too have registered two wins in two matches. Their last match resulted in a five-wicket win over Galle Gladiators.

Riding on an outstanding spell from Carlos Brathwaite (4 for 14), the Falcons restricted the Gladiators to just 121 runs in the first innings. Skipper, Hasaranga (1 for 34) didn’t have the best of the outing and he would be looking to come back stronger.

In reply to Gladiator’s total, Kandy Falcons took 15 overs to chase down the score and register their second consecutive win of the season.

Kamindu  Mendis starred with the bat, amassing 44 runs in 34 balls.
