Colombo Strikers vs Galle Titans Match Pitch Report
The pitch at the venue in Colombo helped the team batting first in the first leg of the LPL matches. Hence, batting first should be the way forward for teams
What to expect:
Colombo Strikers: Niroshan Dickwella’s side has been inconsistent and is at the bottom of the points table. The side went down by 50 runs against Dambulla Aura in the last game in another ordinary performance with the bat and the ball. They still have a faint hope of making it to the next round and must win this game. Dickwella shall like to see the big stars in his side fire in this game.
Pathum Nissanka and Babar Azam are key players for the side, and the team will need a good show from them at the top. Dickwella must anchor the innings in the middle order and add runs with Nuwanidu Fernando and Angelo Perara. Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, and Chamika Karunaratne must do well down the order for the team to win.
Their bowlers have failed to execute the plans, and the team will need a good show from Naseem Shah and Chamika Karunaratne with the new ball. Matheesha Pathirana knows these conditions well and has an important role in this game. Mohammad Nawaz and Jeffrey Vandersay must bowl good spells in the middle overs.
Colombo Strikers Key Players
- Niroshan Dickwella – Niroshan Dickwella led from the front and kept Strikers in the hunt in a tall chase. The southpaw scored a sublime half-century and put the team in a strong position before his wicket triggered a collapse and the team lost its way.
- Babar Azam – Babar Azam did get out early in the opening clash but dare you to doubt his abilities with the bat. Babar will be hungry to get back on the field and play a good knock for his team.
- Naseem Shah – Naseem Shah started well with the new ball and got some decent movement. Wickets with the new ball are a possibility and Naseem will be looking to exploit the fresh conditions and get a few early wickets for his team.
Probable XI: Niroshan Dickwella(w/c), Babar Azam, Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Mohammad Nawaz, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Naseem Shah, Matheesha Pathirana, Jeffrey Vandersay
Colombo Strikers Squad: Babar Azam, Pathum Nissanka, Niroshan Dickwella(w/c), Nuwanidu Fernando, Yashodha Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Mendis, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Matheesha Pathirana, Lakshan Sandakan, Wahab Riaz, Angelo Perera, Jeffrey Vandersay, Iftikhar Ahmed, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Nipun Dhananjaya, Kavishka Anjula, Shashika Dulshan, Lorcan Tucker, Ahan Wickramasinghe, Lahiru Udara, Movin Subasingha, Eshan Malinga
Dambulla Aura: Dambulla Aura won their previous match by 9 runs. They batted first in this match and managed to put up 134 runs on board in 20 overs. Kusal Perera who scored 41 runs was the top scorer for the team. He was assisted by Sadeera Samarawickrama who scored 30 runs in 25 balls. Their partnership ensured that the team reach a defendable score.
In the second innings, the Dambulla bowlers were magnificent as they defended the target. Hasan Ali was the pick of the bowlers as he took 3 wickets. Binura Fernando was brilliant as well picking up 1 wicket while conceding only 8 runs in his 4 over.
Dambulla Aura Key Players
- Kusal Mendis – Kusal Mendis played a magnificent innings of 87 against Colombo Strikers. The batter seems to be in good touch and is striking the ball well. Don’t be surprised if he plays another knock of such magnitude.
- Kusal Perera – Kusal Perera has been consistent for Aura. While he has not got big runs, he has chipped in with crucial contributions in many games. He scored 40 when the two teams last met.
- Dhananjaya de Silva – Dhananjaya De Silva will be a key player for Aura. Being a spinner, the Colombo wicket will help him while his batting credibility is never in question, so De Silva is one of the key players for the team.
Probable XI: Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis(w/c), Sadeera Samarawickrama, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Alex Ross, Hayden Kerr, Binura Fernando, Shahnawaz Dahani, Ravindu Fernando, Noor Ahmad
Dambulla Aura Squad: Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis(w/c), Sadeera Samarawickrama, Ravindu Fernando, Janith Liyanage, Dhananjaya de Silva, Pramod Madushan, Binura Fernando, Lungi Ngidi, Treveen Mathew, Wanuja Sahan, Praveen Jayawickrama, Noor Ahmad, Shahnawaz Dahani, Sachitha Jayathilake, Lakshan Edirisinghe, Jehan Daniel, Alex Ross, Hayden Kerr, Dushan Hemantha, Manelker De Silva, Kavidu Lakshan, Matthew Wade

Colombo Strikers vs Galle Titans Match Prediction
We suggest backing Colombo Strikers as winners. Babar Azam’s form makes a huge difference. Also, the team has a better bowling attack, with the likes of Matheesha Pathirana and Naseem Shah in great form. Jeff Vandersay can also prove to be vital on a sluggish pitch.
We expect Colombo Strikers to win this match.

Colombo Strikers vs Galle Titans Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Babar Azam, the leading run scorer of the tournament, Pathum Nissanka, who scored a fifty in the last game, and Iftikhar Ahmed, who has a great T20 record can be backed to deliver for Colombo.
Galle Titans will expect runs from Tim Seifert, who has been sensational so far, with nearly 250 runs. Also, experienced Bhanuka Rajapaksa and captain Dasun Shanaka, who has played several good hands for the team this season, will be key.
Colombo Strikers vs Galle Titans Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Matheesha Pathirana and Naseem Shah are two bowlers who have done well for Strikers. Jeff Vandersay will also be key given the slow nature of the pitch.
Since the pitch will be assisting the spinners, Shakib Al Hasan, and Seekkuge Prasanna will be the best wicket-taking options for Galle. Kasun Rajitha has also bowled well for the team.
