These two bottom sides will be tussling for maximum points in this crucial fixture. While Galle Gladiators are still in contention for a top-four finish mathematically, it will be unrealistic to see them beat Kandy Tuskers to that fourth-spot on the log.Bet Now!
A win for Rajapaksa’s charge in this upcoming contest will see them move level on points with the opposition Kandy Tuskers. However, due to their inferior net run rate ratio, Galle Gladiators should remain behind KT regardless.
As such, we have a dead-rubber game on our hands, and with nothing to play for in this fixture, coach Moin Khan will be spurring his boys on to deliver a good result to bow out of the tournament on a winning note.
The coach making the right call in the previous game against high-flying Jaffna Stallions, the inclusion of legendary pacer Dale Steyn to the squad helped the team’s cause. Despite enduring a slow start to the game; Steyn, Pradeep and Fernando rose to the occasion to lead KT to success.
This trio combined brilliantly to post a staggering 150 runs over 20 overs. All-rounder Asela Gunaratne enjoyed a wonderful game, delivering a match-winning performance. Handling the bat expertly, he closed the innings with 52 runs off 37 balls.
We expect KT to go about their business in a disciplined manner as they aim to close the competition’s group phase with victory in the bag.
