Colombo Kings vs Galle Gladiators, LPL 2020

Colombo Kings will take on Galle Gladiators in the semi final 1 of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 7.00 PM local time.

Both teams are coming back from wins in their last match so they'll be very high on confidence. 
Colombo Kings have been terrific in the tournament and ended the league stages at the helm of the points table. Galle Gladiators on the other hand will take hope that they comprehensively defeated Colombo in their last encounter.

Colombo Kings batting look a powerhouse now. Laurie Evans has one hundred and a fifty in this last two innings, Dinesh Chandimal has been very consistent. Andre Russell was rested for the last game but he's expected to be back in the XI. The bowling also looks good with Qais Ahmed, Dusmantha Chameera and Andre Russell delivering some decent performances in the past games. Overall they look a pretty settled unit and will go as favourites in this match.

For Galle Gladiators, they only managed to win 2 off their 6 league games. The problem for Galle Gladiators is their over dependence on Danushka Gunathilaka who's been simply outstanding. Other players like Azam Khan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa have shown promise but they've not been able to consistently deliver. 

Their bowlers put up a brilliant show in the last match against Kandy and Galle Gladiators will be expecting similar sort of performance from them. If it happens, we'll have a game on our hands. As of now, Colombo Kings look good for their maiden final appearance.

Galle Gladiators Team News & Playing 11

GGD Team News

The batting looks pretty packed for Galle Gladiators but we can expect Akila Dhananjaya and Milinda Siriwardene, who're omitted from the playing XI in the last game, to make a cut into the team. 

GGD Key Players

  • Danushka Gunathilaka - Simply outstanding!! Gunathilaka has been terrific. He's the leading run scorer of the tournament and will have to play a major role if Galle Gladiators have to upset Colombo Kings.
  • Bhanuka Rajapaksa - He's another batsmen Galle can rest their shoulders to. He's not been very consistent but has batted well on occasions. He'll be looking to play a big knock in a crunch game as semi final
  • Mohammed Amir - Mohammed Amir had a sour start to the tournament but have picked up the momentum as the tournament progressed. He'll be the key if Galle has to restrict Colombo's batsmen.

Both teams had a fairly contrasting league stage with Colombo Kings finishing as table toppers while Galle Gladiators barely managing to sneak in the semi playoffs on account of a better run rate. For Colombo, all their players are in decent form while Galle Gladiators look to be over dependent on Danushka Gunathilaka.

CLK vs GGD Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Dinesh Chandimal at 9.5 and Azam Khan at 8.5 will be our two wicket-keepers. Dinesh Chandimal has been top class tournament while Azam khan has played some useful innings for Galle Gladiators.

  • Batsmen

    Laurie Evans at 10, Danushka Gunathilaka at 10 and Bhanuka Rajapaksa at 8.5 will make up a strong batting line up. Laurie Evans has two big knocks in the last two matches while Gunathilaka is the highest run getter of the Bhanuka Rajapaksa has also batted well in few matches and being the skipper he'll be eager to perform in a knock out game.

  • All-rounders

    Andre Russell at 10, Shehan Jayasuriya at 9.0 and Ashan Priyanjan at 8.5 can be backed from this section. Andre Russell can prove gold in such crunch games. Shehan Jayasuriya and Ashan Priyanjan are other players you can back to manage the credits. Both have been decent though.|

  • Bowlers

    Mohammed Amir and Qais Ahmed at 9.0 and Nuwan Tushara at 8 will complete a strong team. Mohammed Amir has been on a roll in the past few matches and is the biggest asset for Galle Gladiators in the bowling department. Qais Ahmed too has performed exceptionally well. Nuwan Tushara picked up two wickets in the last match and will be high on confidence.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    We would recommend Danushka Gunathilaka as a skipper while Andre Russell can be selected as your vice captain.

CLK vs GGD Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Danushka Gunathilaka(C), Laurie Evans, Bhanuka Rajapaksa

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell(VC), Shehan Jayasuriya, Ashan Priyanjan

  • Wicket Keeper:Azam Khan, Dinesh Chandimal
