The National Super League tournament final between Kandy and Jaffna will be played today (19) at Pallekele International cricket stadium while this match will commence at 2.30 pm as a day-night affair.

Kandy team ended on a high note at the last game against Galle by scoring tournament highest total of 343 for 6 wickets and finished top of the points table. Kandy’s openers Niroshan Dickwella and Lahiru Udara hit centuries being involved in a record open partnership of 233 runs was the highlight of the last game against Galle. However, Dikwella will miss the final game today as he came back to Colombo for the National team to join the bubble for the practices focus on the India test series and that is a big blow for Kandy. Not only that Kandy’s key off-spinner Ashian Daniel who took ten wickets including a five-wicket haul in only three matches suddenly called for the National team practices to Colombo due to Ramesh Mendis injury is a big blow for Kandy but they still have a very talented side under the leadership of Kamindu Mendis.

Jaffna team also has the same problem with their top two experienced batters skipper Dhananjaya de Silva and Lahiru Thirimanne came back to Colombo after the last match against the Colombo team and both players were recalled for the National test team for the India series. Dhanajaya de Silva is the best batter of the tournament making 461 runs while Thirimanne had 237 runs

The promising players Kamindu Mendis (Kandy) and Sadeera Samarawickrama (Jaffna) will lead their sides in the final and Sadeera has a big responsibility in the absence of their regular skipper Dhananjaya de Silva and experience batter Thirimanne.

Kandy team has good confidence after leading the points table with 30 points while Jaffna the second-placed with 22 points came to the final having services of Sadeera Samarawickrama the in-form batter who is also the wicket-keeper of the side, Santhush Gunathileka and experienced bowler Nuwan Pradeep and leg spinner Dilum Sudeera give more strength to the side.

Pulina Tharanga the leg spinner of Kandy having the highest wickets 18 is their key bowler while Oshada Fernando, Lahiru Udara, all-rounder Sahan Arachchige and Lasith Croospulle are their key players while Croospulle and Lahiru Udara will open the Innings in the final.
