Kandy Warriors (KW) face Galle Gladiators (GG) in the fifth match of Lanka Premier League 2021 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday, December 7. 

KW vs GG Dream11 prediction 

Galle Gladiators are tipped to win the contest with relative ease on account of their dominant performance over the defending champions Jaffna Stallions on Sunday. Kandy Warriors will be playing their second match in the league and it remains to be seen how they fare in the first, which is why the Gladiators who seem to have a more settled and confident unit at the moment are likely to emerge victorious. 

KW vs GG Dream11 team tips for Lanka Premier League 2021

Top Tip: Best batter

Bhanuka Rajapaksa is the batter to watch out for in this contest. The GG skipper came to the party with a counter-attacking 31-ball 56 in the opening match against Jaffna Stallions to take his side to a competitive total. The middle-order batter should be a key wicket for the opposition given the form he is in.  

Top Tip: Best bowler

Mehedi Hasan Rana is the bowler who can be the standout performer for KW this season. The Bangladeshi cricketer has produced some impressive performances in the local leagues and is available for 8.5 credits, which is a steal. 

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Samit Patel of GG qualifies as the best all-round option for this contest. The Englishman struck a 31-ball 42 in the tournament opener against Jaffna Stallions and backed it up with a match-winning spell of 3/21. Such numbers definitely make him a must-have in any fantasy team.

Devon Thomas is a smart choice for the wicket-keeping slot in this contest. The KW gloveman is an efficient operator behind the stumps and is an attacking batter too. Available at 8.5 credits, fantasy enthusiasts will want to back this talented player.
