The Galle Gladiators will be locking horns with the Colombo Starts in Match 12 of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2022 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, December 13. With the tournament fast progressing, both teams need to up their games from here on in order to be in the title contention.
The Gladiators are at the third position in the points table but have a lot of work to do, having managed just a solitary win from the three matches with two points to their tally at a negative net run rate of -0.636. Galle had registered a 25-run victory over the Colombo Stars in the reverse fixture and will be in action against the Kandy Falcons on Monday, December 12.
The Colombo Stars, on the other hand, have only managed a win from their three outings and have two points to their tally at a dismal NRR of -2.083. They would be eager to avenge their reverse fixture loss to the Gladiators, but before that have a task at hand against the defending champions Jaffna Kings.

Usually the Pallekele surface has been a spin-friendly one and the teams have enjoyed bowling first at the venue. However, there could be a change in strategy with back-to-back matches taking place at this venue and since the evening games are being played on used wickets, the captain winning the toss could bat first.
