Galle Marvels (GM) will lock horns with Colombo Strikers (CS) in match No. 5 of the ongoing Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2024 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele on Wednesday, July 3.

This is going to be the second encounter for the Marvels, who got their LPL 2024 campaign underway with a match against Jaffna Kings on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Colombo Strikers are also going to be in action for the second time in this edition of the cash-rich league after playing against Kandy Falcons on Tuesday.

Galle are led by flamboyant wicketkeeper-batter Niroshan Dickwella, with Graham Ford being the head coach. Meanwhile, the Strikers have all-rounder Thisara Perera at the helm and the head coach is Carl Crowe. Last year, Galle finished second on the points table at the end of the round-robin phase of the league and eventually lost to B-Love Kandy in Qualifier 2. Colombo, on the other hand, finished last and would want to turn things around this year.

Probable Playing XIs

Galle Marvels:

Alex Hales, Pasindu Sooriyabandara, Kavindu Nadeeshan, Sean Williams, Dwaine Pretorius, Isuru Udana, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Niroshan Dickwella (C), Maheesh Theekshana, Lahiru Kumara, Zahoor Khan.

Colombo Strikers:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (WK), Angelo Perera, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Glenn Phillips, Shadab Khan, Thisara Perera (C), Chamika Karunaratne, Dunith Wellalage, Taskin Ahmed, Binura Fernando, Matheesha Pathirana.

Probable Best Batter of the match

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is going to be the batter to watch out for. He was in stunning form during the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2024. He finished as the top run-getter, scoring 281 from eight games at 35.12. Usually a flamboyant batter, Gurbaz showed a matured side to his batting, grinding it out on the tough batting surfaces in the Caribbean. The young Afghan player would be looking to continue his dream run when he steps onto the field against Galle.

Probable Best Bowler of the match

Matheesha Pathirana’s lethal yorkers make him a huge for his team. The youngster can work up a good pace and unsettle the batters with his slinky action. It would be intriguing to see how Colombo captain Thisara uses Pathirana’s four overs. If he is on song, Galle batters are going to have a tough time getting him away.
