The caravan of the Lanka Premier League has reached its last couple of league games, and these games will decide the final playoffs teams of the tournament. R Premadasa Stadium will be hosting both games on Monday, and it will be interesting to see the behavior of the match.

Jaffna Kings will take on Colombo Stars in the first match of the day. The Kings have already qualified for the playoffs, and it is certain that the Stars will also secure their qualification. Both sides would want to end the league stage on high.

The 2nd match of the day will be played between Galle Gladiators and Dambulla Aura. This match is really important in the context of the tournament as both teams may end up on the same points if Dambulla Aura can win this match, NRR will then come into play.

R Premdasa Stadium pitch report today matches

R Premadasa Stadium has already hosted four games of the Lanka Premier League, and a couple more matches will be played on Monday as well. The track in Colombo has favoured the spinners in the past, but in this tournament, the pacers have been incredible on this track.

Out of the 4 LPL 2022 matches here, 3 of them have been won by the teams batting first with an average 1st innings score of 154 runs. In the initial overs of the match, the pacers are able to swing the ball, and they will again be lethal here. With the 5th straight game, the spinners can be handy in the 2nd innings of the match.

The boundaries of this stadium are not that large, and with a fast outfield, the batters will also enjoy it here, but the bowlers are expected to have some advantage in this match. Both captains may opt to bat upon winning the toss.
