(MENAFN- Colombo Gazette)

Jaffna Kings hit the winning trail by a comprehensive 8-wicket hammering of Dambulla Giants on the third day of the Lanka Premier League at the R. Premadasa Stadium on Tuesday.

It was a king size finish by Thursday Peters's team as they made it in a canter reaching 114 for 2 off only 12.3 overs with Tom Kohler-Cadmore finishing on an unbeaten 45 off 30 balls with Shoaib Malik unleashing the final flourish smashing 3 sixes in his unbeaten 26 off 10.

Dambulla Giants could muster only 110 off 19.3 overs against the spin of Wanindu Hasaranga's 3 for 16 and Maheesh Theekshana's 3 for 22 with quick Suranga Mammal taking 2 for 28. 

Upfront opening batsman Avishka Fernando set the tempo with a 27-ball 33 heightened by 3 over the top to good effect and a boundary. He shared in a second wicket partnership of 76 with Cadmore. Maheesh Theekshan claimed the Player of the match award.
