Captain and vice-captain:
Thisara Perera played innings of his life as he blasted 97 runs from just 44 balls against Dambulla in the last game. And then he came good in the bowling department as well as picked up 2 wickets in 3 overs. His terrific form and his all-round skills make him the ideal choice for captain.
D Olivier started the tournament by picking 4 wickets in his first game and in the second match he bowled effectively to claim 1 wicket for 42 runs. Olivier does go for runs but importantly he is a wicket-taking bowler and hence is the X factor in this game.
U Shanwari had the perfect start to LPL as he claimed 3 wickets for just 16 runs in his first game. He had a good time in the recently concluded National Trophy and he has carried that form in this tournament. He has 105 T20 wickets in 85 games at a strike-rate of 16.8.
B Taylor was given a chance to bat in the last game and he made the most of it by scoring 51 runs from just 35 balls. Taylor is an experienced campaigner and has featured in 163 T20s and has scored 3588 runs at an average of 26.38 and has strike-rate of 122.54.
JS have a strong team with an ideal balance and it seems Kandy won’t be able to stop them. So in the JS vs KT Dream11 today match prediction, expect JS to win the game.
