Lanka T20 League 2023
Match 10: CS vs GT


Preview

On Monday, August 7, the Lanka T20 League 2023 will witness an intense clash between Colombo and Galle at the Pallekele International Stadium.

Lanka T20 League is going into the crucial middle phase where all the franchises will look to distance themselves from the rest. GT is at the top of the table with 2 wins in their 3 matches. Galle lost their last game and looks to come back to winning ways in this match. Colombo is struggling at the bottom half of the table with just a win and will be looking to move ahead in the points table. 

Colombo was unable to chase down a huge total of 193 runs to lose by a close margin of 10 runs. Both Fernando (56 runs) and Babar Azam (41 runs) were superb with the bat while Dickwella and Karunaratne played attacking cameos at either end of the innings. Galle Titans were bundled out for just 117 runs in their 20 overs. The all-rounder and skipper of the side Shanaka top scored with 30 runs. The likes of Shevon Daniel, Shakib Al Hasan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Tim Seifert played good knocks to take them to a 180 score in the first two matches of the league. CS batting will think of the last match as an aberration and go about their business in this match. 

Colombo has won four of the last five matches against the Galle in the Lanka T20 League.


Match Details

Match: CS vs GT, 10th Match, Lanka T20 League 2023

Date: Monday, August 07, 2023

Time: 03:00 PM

Venue: Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele


Pitch and Weather Report

CS and GT will look to chase down the target in this match as chasing has been the norm in the T20Is off late. Batters are taking an aggressive approach and no target is safe nowadays. We expect a good balance between the bat and ball in this match and the average scores to be in the range of 160-180 runs. CS and GT have a line-up of spinners and if the pitch aids spinners, then we might see a low-scoring match.

We expect bright and sunny weather as per the weather forecasters on this matchday.

Match Prediction

GT has excellent depth in their batting and bowling units with a lot of all-rounders in their playing XI. Galle has the advantage of experienced spinners that suit the conditions, but CS spinners lack the X factor. GT has experienced batters who have vast experience in these conditions. We expect Galle to win this match.
