Galle Gladiators (GG) will take on Kandy Warriors (KW) in match 10 of the Lanka Premier League 2021 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Saturday, December 11.
GG vs KW Dream11 prediction
Galle Gladiators have made a good start to the campaign, winning two of their last three matches. This season, they look like a settled unit and are one of the front-runners to lift the trophy.
Meanwhile, Kandy Warriors have had a disappointing season so far, with three losses in as many outings. With time running out, they desperately need to win to stay in the hunt for the knockouts.
Given the recent form, Galle Gladiators are favourites to win the match although Kandy Warriors are no pushovers and could topple the Gladiators.
GG vs KW Dream11 team tips for Lanka Premier League 2021
Top Tip: Best batter
Rovman Powell of Kandy Warriors is the best batting choice for this game. With 104 runs in three matches at a strike-rate of 236, the West Indian is among the top scorers in the tournament. Powell struck a blistering 61 from 19 balls against Jaffna Kings in the previous match and will be the player to watch out for in this fixture.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Among the bowlers, Shiraz Ahmed of the Kandy Warriors makes a great choice. The left-arm pacer returned with bowling figures of 3/22 against Jaffna Kings and will be tasked with providing early breakthroughs against the formidable Gladiators lineup. At 8.5 credits, the Afghan pacer represents a great value.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Galle Gladiators’ Samit Patel will be the best all-round option for this game. At present, Patel is among the top wicket-takers in the tournament, with six wickets at a miserly economy of 4.41. As a batsman, he has amassed 60 runs in three innings and will be relied upon to anchor the middle order. Samit Patel, who has 263 fantasy points already under his belt, is a must-pick for 9.5 credits.
Amongst the wicket-keepers, Galle Gladiators’ Ben Dunk is the best option. Despite scoring just 58 runs over three innings, the Australian is an essential inclusion for this game due to his experience of playing T20 tournaments worldwide. With over 3500 runs in T20 cricket, the 34-year-old is poised to excel in the Gladiators' middle order. Selected by 95 per cent of the fantasy users, Ben Dunk is a worthy budget pick for 8.5 credits.
GG vs KW probable playing XI
GG playing XI (probable): Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka, Mohammad Hafeez, Ben Dunk (wicket-keeper), Bhanuka Rajapaksa (captain), Samit Patel, Lahiru Madushanka, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Noor Ahmad, Nuwan Thushara, Suminda Lakshan
KW playing XI (probable): Kennar Lewis, Charith Asalanka, Rovman Powell, Kamindu Mendis, Angelo Perera (captain), TM Sampath, Minod Bhanuka (wicket-keeper), Nimesh Vimukthi, Sachindu Colombage, Al-Amin Hossain, Shiraz Ahmed
