Galle Gladiators vs Dambulla Viikings, LPL 2020

Galle Gladiators will take on Dambulla Viikings in the 17th match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The match will be played on the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 8.00 PM local time. 

A win in their last match has made the qualification scenarios a little more interesting. Kandy Tuskers and Galle Gladiators, both will be looking to win their next matches to put their case forward for a place in the semi final. 

Galle Gladiators were very impressive in their last match against Colombo Kings. They always had a pretty solid team on paper but their performance was not up to the mark. Few odd performance from Danushka Gunathilaka and Azam Khan were not good enough to win them the matches. However, in the last match they played to their potential and the result came in their favour. 

Danushka Gunathilaka carried on his decent form and got good support from Ahsan Ali, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Azam Khan. Gladiators will be hoping for a similar sort of batting performance in this crunch game. 

Mohammed Amir's return back to form is a huge boost for Galle. Other bowlers might not be as lethal as Amir but they're decent enough to trouble the opposition. 

They're up against Dambulla Viikings, who have 4 wins in 6 games yet we're not sure how far they can go in the tournament. The reason is their vulnerabilities in their batting. Apart from Dasun Shanaka, none of their batsmen has played back to back good knocks. That's a massive concern. 

In the earlier part of the tournament, Samit Patel looked very good with the bat but he too has ran out of gas. Other players like Niroshan Dickwella, Angelo Perera and Ramesh Mendis have been very inconsistent. 

The bowling is also pretty bleak with Anwar Ali and Kasun Rajitha, their two best bowlers, not delivering as per expectations. Other bowlers too doesn't look like real wicket takers. 

Overall, Galle Gladiators are a better team on paper and even though Dambulla Viikings have won more matches, we would like to go with the former.
