Wayamba are still clearly ahead of the pack in this years Sri Lankan Premier League and they face Ruhuna who will be backing up after a good win against Basnahira. Wayamba suffered a shock lost to the Kandurata Warriors and it seems whenever Kamran Akmal fails with the bat Wayamba struggle. Lasith Malinga will have the big job of dismissing Akmal in the early overs and he might have to do the same thing in a month at the T20 World Cup so it is always good to get one over another player.

Lasith Malinga vs Kamran Akmal
Lasith Malinga is the best T20 bowler in the World and his yorkers are so hard to deal with, Kamran Akmal has had an influential involvement for Wayamba scoring 203 runs which puts him as the highest run scorer for his team. These are 2 players that in decent knick and it is always very entertaining to watch two players at top flight go against each other. Wayamba will be looking to secure that 1st place spot as they have a clear 2 point advantage over the rest of the field. Malinga has only taken the 6 wickets and that is the only stat that is against him in the tournament so far.
