Match 20 of the ongoing Lanka Premier League 2022 will see the clash between Galle Gladiators and Dambulla Aura at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Monday, December 19. While both sides are nearly out of contention from the playoffs, playing for pride will be the agenda in the final league match.
Both Galle and Dambulla have endured a series of dismal outings this season as they lost five matches each in the competition. While fans were expecting runners-up Galle to perform like they did in the previous season, the side has been far from impressive.
Speaking about their head-to-head records in the last five outings, Dambulla registered wins on three occasions while Galle just won once with one match yielding no result. The first leg between the two sides this season saw Dambulla winning by 48 runs as Galle were no match to their rival side in the contest. In any case, both sides will be aiming for victories and would look to finish the season on a winning note.
Galle Gladiators vs Dambulla Aura, Match 20, Lanka Premier League 2022
Venue: R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo
Date & Time: December 19, 7:30 PM IST
Telecast & Live Streaming: Sony Sports Network and SonyLIV
The surface at the R Premadasa Stadium is usually very good for the spinners and they are expected to make merry on this wicket towards the second innings. While batters can still get a competitive total on board, it remains to be seen the impact, the spinners will make in the contest.
Probable Playing XIs for GG vs DA:
Thanuka Dabare, Kusal Mendis (c & wk), Lahiru Udara, Asad Shafiq, Nuwanidu Fernando, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep, Nuwan Thushara
Shevon Daniel, Jordan Cox (wk), Dasun Shanaka (c), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Sikandar Raza, Matthew Forde, Ravindu Fernando, Pramod Madushan, Noor Ahmad, Dilum Sudeera, Kalana Perera
Probable Best Performers from GG vs DA
Probable best batter: Kusal Mendis
Kusal has been in tremendous form this season for Galle despite his team unable to perform at the highest level. In his previous match against Jaffna, he scored a terrific knock of 58 runs off 45 balls which eventually went in vain. The skipper will look to add threat with the bat once again in the final league match against Dambulla.
Probable best bowler: Sikandar Raza
The Zimbabwean has the potential to hand his side not only the vital breakthroughs but also restrict the rival team from scoring big. The all-rounder will look to maintain his form and produce a good performance for his side against Galle.
