The pitch should be a decent one to bat. The wickets so far have allowed teams to score big as there is very little help on offers for the bowlers. However, it is seen if the bowlers bowl right lines, the batters could be put under pressure.

GAM Team News

Galle Marvels started the tournament with a win against Jaffna Kings. The team bowled first and restricted Kings to 177-7 before chasing the target on the final ball of the game. Alex Hales was the hero of the win as he played a brilliant knock of 65 to lead the team to a win.

GAM Team Batting

Alex Hales, Niroshan Dickwella and Bhanuka Rajapaksa are batters we feel could do well in the next game. Hales looks in great form and will be over the moon after the match winning 65 run innings. Dickwella also batted well against Jaffna and scored 47 in 27 balls. Bhanuka Rajapaksa is eyeing a return to Sri Lanka national team and will be determined to do well in LPL.

GAM Team Bowling

The bowling will rest on Isuru Udana and Dwayne Pretorious. Both pacers are T20 specialists and have plenty of tricks in their armoury to deceive the batters and get wickets. Both picked two wickets in the last game. Maheesh Theekshana went wicketless but he is a match winner on his day.

🏆 Galle Marvels vs Colombo Strikers Prediction

Both teams come into the match on back of a win in their tournament openers. Both teams have some big names in the side, however, Strikers have a more balanced squad, with depth in batting. They also have more quality when it comes to overseas batters and will start the game as favourites.
