Short Story

Jaffna Kings continues her victorious path. They started 2023 in style. Colombo started the chase well, Dikwell punished in the majority, but the usual gates hurt them. Babar left early, and it was a big gate. Hardus Viljoen and Madushanka hit the wicket hard, while Colombo in the center was hit with some soft shots. Dikwella and Nawaz went straight to the third player and the opportunities just went astray. Too much work for the likes of Chamika Karunaratne at the end and the asking bid has taken wickets. Jaffna closed it through her bowlers. Vijaskant’s spinning is very impressive during medium overs as well.
