GT vs DA Preview:
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz comes into the tournament with some fine performances in Zim Afro T10 League. He is one of the tournament’s best batters with 625 runs. Back him as Jaffna’s top batter.
- A lot will rest on the shoulders of Babar Azam and Colombo Strikers will need him to fire against a quality Jaffna Attack. Babar can be backed as Colombo Strikers’ top batter.
- Matheesha Pathirana had a great run in IPL 2023. He usually bowls at death where chances of getting wickets are high. Back him to be Colombo Strikers’ top bowler.
TV Channels: The tournament will be available on Star Sports 3 in India.
Live Streaming: Live streaming of the match will be available on the Fancode app and website.
Weather & Pitch Report:
The weather will be cloudy with the temperature ranging between 30 and 27 degrees. There is a small 20 per cent chance of rain too.
The pitch should be a good cricketing surface. The new ball will be key for both teams. Early wickets will mean that teams won’t be able to score many runs in the powerplay which will allow spinners to keep the batters in check. For the batting side, a good powerplay will mean that the batters can play spinners cautiously and launch an attack in death overs..
Chasing has been preferred by captains in LPL and we feel the team winning the toss will bowl first, especially in the first game to get used to the surface.
GT vs DA Team NEWS:
GT Team News:
Galle Titans will be looking for a turnaround after a horrible show in the last season where they lost six out of the eight games. The team did qualify for the playoffs but lost in the Eliminator. This time, the team has a good squad at its disposal and will be expecting some favourable results.
DA Team News:
Dambulla Aura also failed to make an impact and could not qualify for the playoffs after losing six out of eight games. The team has compiled a heavy batting lineup for the LPL 2023 season and will be expecting positive results.
Shakib Al Hasan
D De Silva
Historically, Dambulla Aura have dominated the Galle Titans and the team has compiled a good unit in the LPL 2023 as well. The team has one of the strongest batting with Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, and Dhananjaya de Silva. They have Seekuge Prasanna, Noor Ahmed and Praveen Jayawickrama in the bowling. The team looks to have all bases covered and will start as favourites against Galle Titans, who are a top-heavy team but lack depth in batting.
GT vs DA Key Players:
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.
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.
Kusal Perera has scored 305 runs in 15 matches of the tournament at an average of 20. The numbers are on the lower side but Perera is one of the most talented batters in Sri Lanka cricket and it will be a great opportunity for him to improve his stats in the tournament.
Avishka Fernando came into the limelight after a staggering show in the Lanka Premier League. He is the tournament’s highest run scorer with 926 runs at an average of 26. He is expected to play a key role for Dambulla Aura in the season.
Afghanistan’s Noor Ahmed will be a threat on the low and slow turning tracks of Sri Lanka. Noor Ahmed recently played in T10 League and emerged as one of the top performers.
