Colombo Strikers vs Galle Titans Match Pitch Report
No match has been played at Pallekele in the ongoing season. Hence, it is a little tricky to understand how the pitch would behave. Teams should look to the field first after winning the toss.
What to expect:
Colombo Strikers: It was a poor batting performance from Niroshan Dickwella’s side in the last game against the Jaffna Kings. The captain led from the front but didn’t find support from the other players. Dickwella would like to see a more determined effort from his players as they look to earn their first points.
Niroshan Dickwella played a good knock in the last game and will look to set up a big partnership with Babar Azam. The middle order has a poor outing, and they need runs from Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, and Mohammad Nawaz. Yashodha Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne, and Ramesh Mendis must use the long handle and add quick runs.
Mohammad Nawaz bowled well in the last game and will look to get early breakthroughs along with Naseem Shah. Ramesh Mendis and Matheesha Pathirana have an important role in the middle overs, and they must bowl good spells. Chamika Karunaratne and Lakshan Sandakan complete a good bowling attack for the team.
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
Galle Titans: It was an exciting start to the campaign for Dasun Shanaka’s side. They won the last game against the Dambulla Aura in the Super Over. While Shanaka will be proud of how his side handled pressure in the dying stages, he would like to see a better show from his bowlers in this game. They lost both games against B-Love Kandy last year and shall look to perform better.
Shevon Daniel batted well in the last game, and he will look to set up a big stand with Lasith Croospulle. Bhanuka Rajapaksa looked good at No. 3, and he must build partnerships with Tim Seifert and Shakib al Hasan in the middle order. Shanaka and Lahiru Samarakoon add firepower to this line-up down the order.
Kasun Rajitha held his nerves in the last game, and he must get early breakthroughs with Vishwa Fernando as Kandy batters looked rusty in the last game. Shakib and Tarbaiz Shamsi are experienced bowlers, and they will look to do well in the middle overs. Shanaka, Lasith Croospulle, and Seekkuge Prasanna add variety to this attack.
Galle Titans Key Players
- Bhanuka Rajapaksa – Bhanuka Rajapaksa recently played in T10 League but struggled to get going. However, he will be more comfortable in the T20 format where he can afford to consume a few balls. Rajapaksa is one of the top performers in LPL with 454 runs.
- Shakib Al Hasan – Shakib Al Hasan will be vital for the Titans owing to his all-round skills. Shakib will add a lot of strength in the middle order while his four overs will be crucial for the team.
- Tim Seifert – Seifert is fresh from a brilliant run in the T10 League where he scored over 200 runs and was one of the tournament’s top run-getters. The batter would like to ride on momentum and have a good season of LPL.
Probable XI: Shevon Daniel, Lasith Croospulle, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Tim Seifert(w), Shakib Al Hasan, Dasun Shanaka(c), Lahiru Samarakoon, Kasun Rajitha, Tabraiz Shamsi, Akila Dananjaya, Richard Ngarava
Galle Titans Squad: Tim Seifert(w), Minod Bhanuka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mohammad Mithun, Dasun Shanaka(c), Ben Cutting, Seekkuge Prasanna, Akila Dananjaya, Lahiru Kumara, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando, Ashan Priyanjan, Anuk Fernando, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lahiru Samarakoon, Lasith Croospulle, Pasindu Sooriyabandara, Sonal Dinusha, Mohamed Shiraz, Shevon Daniel, Avishka Perera, Sohan de Livera, Chad Bowes
