Jaffna Kings will take on Dambulla Giants in the 4th match of the Lanka Premier League 2021 on Tuesday. Jaffna Kings had a bad start into this tournament as they were thoroughly thrashed by Galle Gladiators by 54 runs. No batter could keep going and they lost wickets at regular intervals of time, which in the end proved costly. They are a quality side, and just need to regroup themselves.

On the contrary, Dambulla Giants had an impressive start in this competition with a 20-run victory over Kandy Warriors. Phil Salt is in a different zone at the moment and played an excellent knock. They were professional throughout the match in all aspects of the game and need to extend the same for the rest of the tournament.
