Having secured the services of Shahid Afridi – their marquee foreign player – Galle Gladiators will be feeling pretty confident ahead of the campaign. They have enough fire-power in their ranks to challenge for a top-four finish.Bet Now!
With Johnson Charles set to feature for Vaadaa Machan this season, the onus will be on him to deliver most of the runs. Backed up by the experienced Avishka Fernando and Dhananjaya de Silva, Charles’ job will be made much easier.
JST’s middle-order seems pretty decent, comprising high-profile names like Thisara Perera, Tom Moores and Shoaib Malik. Definitely, these ones will help their team’s cause with their unrivaled quality with the bat. Their bowling unit is already well-stacked.
Afghan opener Hazratullah Zazai is expected to take center-stage in the batting department, as his excellent record in the T20 format puts him on a higher pedestal over the other batsmen. The young player has registered two centuries and seven half-centuries in the shortest format of the game.
Also, the 22-year-old will have decent support from both Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Danushka Gunathilaka, who are sure to hit the ground running this season. GGD’s bowling unit has Mohammad Amir and Lakshan Sandakan in it – that pretty much tells you all you need to know!
Given that Mohammad Amir and Shahid Afridi have been playing competitive games over the last couple of months, they should be 100%match fit. These factors pretty much tip the scales in GGD’s favor. Hence, count on Galle Gladiators to secure victory here.
