What to expect:
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, Seekkuge Prasanna, Vishwa Fernando, Tabraiz Shamsi, Kasun Rajitha
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
B-Love Kandy: Wanindu Hasaranga mustn’t let the last game’s performance be on their minds. The batters let the side down in the last game against the Colombo Strikers. They have several matchwinners on the side, and Hasaranga will like to see them do well and earn their first points in this game.
Dinesh Chandimal and Thanuka Dabare struggled at the top, and the pair must deliver the goods in this game. The middle order is good, and they expect runs from Kamindu Mendis, Angelo Mathews, and Ashen Bandara. Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Sarfaraz Ahmed must add quick runs down the order.
The bowling attack looked good in the last game, and the side will expect tight spells from Mohammad Hasnain and Isuru Udana. Hasaranga and Mujeeb ur Rahman make it a strong spin attack and have an important role. Aamer Jamal, Mendis, and Thanuka Dabare must deliver the goods in the supporting role.
B-Love Kandy Key Players
- Wanindu Hasaranga – Wanindu Hasaranga will have to pull out a staggering performance for his team. Hasaranga is one of the best spinners going around and has taken 197 wickets in T20 matches.
- Mujeeb ur Rahman – Mujeeb ur Rahman will also be key for Kandy. The spinner has created a repo of a T20 specialist and has lived up to the same as well. Mujeeb has taken 217 wickets in T20 matches at an average of 23 and an economy of less than 7.
- Dinesh Chandimal – The experienced batter will be key in the middle order. Chandimal is the third-highest run scorer in LPL with 810 runs to his name.
