Betting Tips

  • Coming this final, they'll have one final opportunity to prove their worth. They'll have to do it if Galle Gladiators have to pull of an unlikely win. There are too many flaws in the batting but their bowling thankfully looks decent.
  • Mohammed Amir has been terrific and spinners Dhananjaya Lakshan and Lakshan Sandakan can get the best out this pitch. The all rounders have also bowled well So, if Galle Gladiators can bat well, we’ llbe in for some exciting cricket.
  • Taking about Jaffna Stallions, they've been simply outstanding. Their tournament got slightly off track after losing their last three matches but they proved their mettle in the semi final with an emphatic win over Dambulla Viikings.

Galle Gladiators vs Jaffna Stallions Final,  LPL 2020

Galle Gladiators will take on Jaffna Stallions in the final 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.

So we’re in to the final day of the Sri Lanka Premier League and what a tournament it haas turned out to be. We won’t say that the two best teams are playing the final because Galle Gladiators are very fortunate to have a shot at the title even after losing most of their matches.

For Galle Gladiators, Danuskha Gunathilaka was class apart but if you analyse the performance of their other players, the Galle management will be very disappointed. There were lot of expectations from players like Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Azam Khan, Ahsan Ali, all have consistently performed well in domestic cricket and it was a great opportunity for all of them to make a case for a national selection however, it didn’t happened.

The batting is an issue for Jaffna Stallions as well as they’ve failed to deliver collective performances but the good thing is that all of their players are in form. Avishka Fernando has been their best batsmen and will continue to be. Johnson Charles got 76 the other day is also a big boost. Players like Shoaib Malik, Thisara Perera are also big match players.

In the bowling department, Wanindu Hasaranga, Usman Shinwari and Duanne Olivier form a lethal bowling attack and won’t make it easy for Galle Gladiatiors. All in all, there is a big difference in the skill set of both teams and anyone with little sense of the game can tell that Jaffna Stalions are big favourites here but Cricket is a funny game and we’ve seen some big upsets in the past.

GGD vs JST Toss Prediction

Toss will be very crucial. In a crunch game like final, on a slow pitch. No captain would want to chase. 

Weather Report

The weather looks good but there are 40% chances of rain. Hopefully, it won’t affect the match.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota. The pitch curators have done a commendable job throughout the tournament. The pitches were excellent for batting. They did get a little slow as the tournament went on but that’s something that’s inevitable. We saw the same in Sharjah during the IPL as well. For this match, the pitch will be no different - A good batting wicket with not much pace. Slower bowlers will have a bigger say than the pacers.

Galle Gladiators Team News & Playing 11

GGD Team News

A final is not a game to expect too many changes. Galle Gladiators played their best XI in the semi fibal and unless there is an injury, they are most likely to stick with the same XI. Maybe they could try Hazratulla Zazai in place of Chanaka Ruwansiri. 

GGD Key Players

  • Danushka Gunathilaka - The leading run scorer of the tournament, Danushka Gunathilaka has been the stand out performer for Galle. He’s been very consistent throughout the tournament and would like to finish the tournament on a high.
  • Bhanuka Rajapaksa - The skipper has batted well on occasions but the team needs a big inning from him in the final. He’s capable of doing that. 
  • Mohammed Amir - Mohammed Amir has been bowling really well. He’s been among the wickets in every game and can be expected to continue his good run.

Jaffna Stallions Team News & Playing 11

JST Team News

Jaffna Stallions were outstanding in the semi final. They made a lot of changes and dropped players like Minod Bhanuka, Tom Moores, Binura Fernando. We don’t think they’ll bring them back as all of them was pretty ordinary.

JST Key Players

GGD vs JST Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Johnson Charles at 9.0 is a good option. He played a magnificent knock of 76 in the semi final so he’s in some good form. 

  • Batsmen

    Danushka Gunathilaka at 10, Avishka Fernando at 10 and Bhanuka Rajapaksa at 9.0 form a strong batting order. Gunathilaka and Fernando are the two top scorers for their team while Bhanuka Rajapaksa have started to look good in the last few matches. We expect a big inning is just around the corner.

  • All-rounders

    Wanindu Hasaranga at 9.5, Shehan Jayasuriy at 9.0 and Dhanajaya de Silva at 8.5 will provide enough depth to your team. Hasaranga has been brilliant with the ball but when needed he has contributed with the ball as well. Shehan Jayasuriya is another player that can be very handy with his all round skills. Dhanajaya de Silva is back in the playing XI and is a very useful cricketer.

  • Bowlers

    Usman Shinwari at 8.5, Dianne Olivier at 8.5, Mohammed Amir and Akila Dhananjya at 9.0  form a strong bowling attack. Shinwari and Amir are two quality pacers. Amir especially has been terrific. The other two bowlers i.e Akila Dhananjaya and Duanne Oliver too have been very good with the ball. The pitch support Akila Dhananjaya more than any other bowler.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Danushka Gunathilaka is our preferred skipper while Avishka Fernando can be backed as his deputy.

GGD vs JST Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Avishka Fernando(VC), Danushka Gunathilaka(C), Bhanuka Rajapaksa

  • All Rounder:Shehan Jayasuriya, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dhananjaya de Silva

  • Wicket Keeper:Johnson Charles

  • Bowler:Usman Shinwari, Dianne Olivier, Mohammed Amir, Akila Dhanajaya
