Galle Titans vs B-Love Kandy 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: 

Team news:

Galle Titans: Galle Titans will be flying high on confidence after that outstanding performance in their final league game. In that must-win match, Galle shot Colombo out for 74 after opting to bowl first. The match was over there itself, and Galle cantered home with an easy 8-wicket win. It was an incredible bowling show, led by left-arm chinaman Tabraiz Shamsi, who snared 4 wickets for 20 runs, and Seekkuge Prasanna, with figures of 3-14. However, it was Lahiru Kumara’s spell of 2-9 from 2 overs that broke Colombo’s back.

Shamsi tops Galle’s bowling charts with 11 wickets in 7 innings at an economy of 7.25. Kasun Rajitha (10 wickets in 8 innings at 7.79) and Lahiru Kumara (6 wickets in 3 innings at 5.30) have been the other two consistent bowlers this season for Galle. 

Then there is all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who, apart from picking up 8 wickets with his left-arm spin, has also been extremely economical, going for just 5.66.

The Titans will miss the services of their leading run-getter, Tim Seifert, who has had to leave for national duty. But Litton Das is a solid replacement. 

Lasith Croospulle, fresh from a breezy unbeaten knock of 42 off 25 balls, will be one batter worth watching out for. The opener has been in fine nick and has been striking it at 150. We are also expecting a big performance from skipper Dasun Shanaka in this important game. He has had a quiet tournament by his standards but is a true game-changer.

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.
  • Tim Seifert – Tim Seifert has scored 231 runs in 7 games for the team and he will be the team’s lead in the batting department.
  • Shakib Al Hasan – Shakib Al Hasan is always a Trump card in this format of the game owing to his all-around skills. Shakib has been below par so far but you don’t count out big players in big games.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi – Tabraiz Shamsi is enjoying the conditions in Colombo. He has taken 11 wickets in seven games so far in LPL 2023.

Probable XI: Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Lasith Croospulle, Litton Das(w), Shakib Al Hasan, Dasun Shanaka(c), Najibullah Zadran, Lahiru Samarakoon, Seekkuge Prasanna, Lahiru Kumara, Kasun Rajitha, Tabraiz Shamsi

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’s team has gained momentum. They have won the last four games and defeated the Jaffna Kings in the last game by 8 runs. They have booked a berth in the next round and shall look to strengthen their position further. Hasaranga would know his opponent’s strengths and look to do well here.  

Mohammad Haris and Fakhar Zaman are in good form, and the side will expect a strong show from the pair in this game. Dinesh Chandimal brings in a lot of experience and will look to do well with Sahan Arachchige and Angelo Mathews in the middle order. Hasaranga, Asif Ali, and Isuru Udana make this batting line-up strong.  

Angelo Mathews and Mujeeb ur Rahman must strike early, as the Strikers have a strong opening pair. Hasaranga and Nuwan Pradeep are in good form, and the pair will look to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs. Dushmantha Chameera and Udana add variety to this attack. 

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.

Probable XI: Mohammad Haris, Fakhar Zaman, Dinesh Chandimal(w), Wanindu Hasaranga(c), Kamindu Mendis, Asif Ali, Angelo Mathews, Sahan Arachchige, Isuru Udana, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

B-Love Kandy Squad: Thanuka Dabare, Navod Paranavithana, Angelo Mathews, Asif Ali, Dinesh Chandimal(w), Suresh Raina, Aamer Jamal, Wanindu Hasaranga(c), Kamindu Mendis, Dushmantha Chameera, Nuwan Pradeep, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Isuru Udana, Lasith Abeyratne, Lahiru Madushanka, Chaturanga de Silva, Ashen Bandara, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Haris, Avishka Tharindu, Malsha Tharupathi, Sahan Arachchige
