Match 20: CS vs GT

 

Preview 

The Lankan T20 League action will continue as Colombo Strikers will take on Galle Titans in Match 20 on Tuesday, August 15. The R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo will host the game. 

CS are coming into this game with a win in their previous fixture against BK by a narrow margin of 9 runs. They are sitting in the fifth position on the points table. They accumulated six points by winning three games in seven matches.  

On the other side, GT are coming into this game after finishing their last match on a winning note against JK by seven wickets. They are ranked second last (fourth) on the league standings with the same number of wins from seven matches played, but have a better net run rate resulting in their having one place better than CS. This will be a do-or-die game as the winning team will qualify for the knockout stage and the one losing will be knocked out of this tournament.

Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at R. Premadasa Stadium promises an intriguing contest, offering early movement for seamers with the new ball while favouring spinners as it wears down. Though turn is limited, slower bowlers can exploit the lack of pace. Once batsmen settle in, ample scoring opportunities await.

Expect a bit of cloud around with less chance of precipitation (6% chance), while the temperature fluctuates between a comfortable 31 and 26 degrees. Humidity is to remain at 77% on the matchday.
