The Jaffna Kings went the longest way in the Lanka Premier League and won the decisive match. Their encounters in the final game, Galle Gladiators, couldn’t chase the excellent batting of their opponents.
Jaffna was set to bat first, and the best team on the group stage made it confidently with 201 runs in total. However, Galle was also pretty confident in the opening batting, but the more wickets they lost, their chances were lower. All in all, the Gladiators scored crucial 178 runs, but it wasn’t enough to win the trophy.
