The Jaffna Kings suffered a bit of a shock defeat in Qualifier 1 of the Lanka Premier League 2021-22. It is, however, getting the advantage of finishing at the top of the table in the group stage and will have one more shot to qualify for the Lanka Premier League 2021-22.
It will be taking on the Dambulla Giants who beat the Colombo Kings in the Eliminator.
The Jaffna Kings defeated the Dambulla Giants pretty comfortably the two times they played against each other in the group stage.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Dambulla Giants vs Jaffna Kings Qualifier 2 Lanka Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 21st of December 2021.
Nuwan Pradeep and Imran Tahir were the two best bowlers for the Dambulla Giants in their previous match. Both of them picked up two wickets each and kept the run-scoring down. It was interesting to see Joshua Little get the nod in the previous match. Now that the Giants won, we think they could keep the same bowling attack.
This is not the strongest bowling attack but it is certainly not the worst. We would stay away from betting on this bowling lineup as it is up against a strong batting unit in this match.
Phil Salt, Janith Liyanage, and Najibullah Zadran played good knocks under pressure to help the Giants over the line in a tense chase. We rate Salt quite highly and he could be one of the best picks to be the Top Batsman Dambulla Giants in this match. He is also a good pick for the 'To Hit A Six' betting market alongside Najibullah Zadran.
The Dambulla Giants were defeated quite comprehensively by the Jaffna Kings in the group stage and we think they will have to do something extraordinary to avoid the same fate this time around.

It is not uncommon for strong teams to lose matches in T20 cricket. The format is so quick that a poor start can quickly escalate to a poor match. That does not make the Jaffna Kings a poor team, though.
We think their batting lineup is easily stronger than the Dambulla Giants. Avishka Fernando, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Shoaib Malik, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, and Thisara Perera are all in good form. Wanindu Hasaranga is also a genuine all-rounder at this level of cricket.
We think Tom Kohler-Cadmore offers good value as a pick for the 'Top Batsman Jaffna Kings' betting market.
The bowling unit of the Jaffna Kings is very good. They came under pressure fro Kusal Mendis in the previous match but we are still backing them to hit back hard in this match.
Wahab Riaz, Maheesh Theekshana, Wanindu Hasaranga, and Suranga Lankmal form a stronger bowling unit than what the Dambulla Giants have for sure. Hasaranga has been the leading wicket-taker for the Jaffna Kings and you may want to take a punt on him once more for the Top Bowler Jaffna Kings betting market.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

A bit of rain is predicted in Hambantota on match day but the overall forecast remains quite good. The pitch in Hambantota is very good for batting. We saw 188 being hit in Qualifier 1 and that was probably around 20 runs above par. Something around 165-170 is definitely what teams batting first will aim for.
