Jaffna Kings is the two-time LPL champion side representing Jaffna city. They have won both editions of the Lanka Premier League and would very much like to complete the Hat-Trick of trophies this year when LPL begins.
Jaffna Kings Squad 2022
They have a great pool of overseas players in their squad, which is their biggest strength. However, their local talent cannot be underestimated as well, and they are as good as international players.

Jaffna Kings LPL 2022 Batsmen
Evin Lewis, Shoaib Malik, Rehmanullah Gurbaz and Tristan Stubbs are some of the T20 specialist batters who are a part of this lineup, and they all are foreign picks. Malik and Gurbaz are also familiar with such conditions and are prolific T20 scorers. Similarly, Stubbs and Lewis also have a great reputation for their explosive batting in the shortest format of the game.
Ashan Randika, Nipun Dananjaya and Sadeera Samarawickrama are the other batters in this lineup. All three local batters have a similar batting average and are good at making runs, except Ashan Randika, whose strike rate is quite impressive, and his hard-hitting will be a threat to the opponents.

Jaffna Kings LPL 2022 All-Rounders
Thisara Perera and Theivendiram Dinoshan are the two pace bowling all-rounders in this lineup. Perera needs no introduction; he has been a match-winner for Sri Lanka all his life. Dinoshan is a young express pacer but has yet to play much.
Sumida Lakshan, Dhananjaya De Silva and Dunith Wellalage are the three spin-bowling all-rounders in this Jaffna squad. Wellalage has been impressive with the ball and has good batting numbers in first-class cricket as well. Sumida Lakshan also is a good bowler and a handy batsman. D De Silva is the most prolific spin-bowling all-rounder in this squad.

Jaffna LPL 2022 Fast Bowlers
The pace bowling unit of Jaffna Kings is quite exciting. It consists of Shahnawaz Dahani and Hardus Viljoen as their foreign picks. Both are quite quick and have requisite T20 experience.
The local pacers include Binura Fernando and Dilshan Madushanka. Binura Fernando has a lot of experience and has great numbers in T20 cricket. Madushanka is a young talent, but he surely has shown great talent at this early stage of his career.

Jaffna Kings LPL 2022 Spin Bowlers
The supremely talented Maheesh Theekshana will be the leader of this spin attack. Maheesh is undoubtedly a great spinner, and he showed his skills in World T20 2022 as well. Praveen Jayawickwrama is also a great young spinner who has great numbers in his 24-match T20 career so far.
Theresa Vithusan has shown great potential in First Class cricket with 39 wickets in 8 games. However, he is yet to play the shortest format of the game. Vijayakanth Viyaskanth is a leggie in the lineup who could prove to be threatening.
