Dambulla Aura will be locking horns with the Galle Gladiators in Match 15 of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2022 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Saturday, December 17. Both teams are currently languishing at the bottom of the points table and desperately need a win under their win from hereon to make further progress in the tournament.
Dambulla find themselves languishing at the rock bottom having lost all their five matches so far and are in a dire position to open their account in this season. Their dismal net run rate stands at -2.583. Dambulla Aura would be heading into this fixture after a heavy nine-wicket defeat at the hands of Colombo Stars in the last game.
The Galle Gladiators on the other hand have also been inconsistent throughout this competition. They have so far registered two wins and three losses from the five games played and have four points to their tally at an unimpressive NRR of -0.323. The Gladiators come into this contest on the back of a two-wicket defeat against the Colombo Stars in a high-scoring thriller.

All eyes will once again be on the Galle Gladiators skipper Kusal Mendis to make his bat do the talking against a demoralized Dambulla Aura. Mendis had scored a blistering 72 runs off 49 deliveries in the previous fixture against the Colombo Stars and powered his team to a stiff total of 193/5. Nonetheless, Kusal’s valiant knock ended up on the losing side.
Probable best bowler: Nuwan Thushara
Nuwan Thushara was the pick of the bowlers in the last game for the Galle Gladiators and kept his side in the hunt right till the very end with an amazing three-wicket haul. He finished with figures of 3/29 from his four overs at an economy rate of 7.3. Thushara would once again be expected to showcase an impactful bowling performance.
