Kandy Falcons (KFL) are set to square off against Galle Marvels (GM)  in match No. 9 of the ongoing Lanka Premier League (LPL 2024), at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla, on Sunday, July 7.

The Kandy-based franchise will be gearing up for their fourth game of the five-team tournament. Notably, the Wanindu Hasaranga-led side won their opening game against Dambulla Sixers but lost their second game to Colombo Strikers. Before taking on Marvel, the side will be once again up against the Colombo-based franchise. They will be looking to get back to winning ways. 

Meanwhile, Galle started their campaign on a high, winning their first two games. Facing Jaffna in their opening game, the side registered a five-wicket win. Against Colombo, the Niroshan Dickwella-led side won the game by a narrow seven win. But the Kings came back strong as they won the game by five wickets. Galle will be putting the loss behind their back and will look to register another win and go up the table.
