CK vs GG Prediction, Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report and Injury Update – Lanka Premier League, 1st Semi-Final

Mohammad Amir had derailed the Colombo Vikings the previous time the two sides met, so he makes a must-have in your team.

Match Details

The 1st semi-final of the Lankan Premier League will be played between Colombo Kings & Galle Gladiators at the Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium, Hambantota on Sunday, 13th December.

The live streaming of the match is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM IST. The match will be telecast on Sony Six and can be streamed on Sony Liv.

Preview

Storming their way into the finals in the most dynamic manner, the Galle Gladiators have momentum on their side having won a previous encounter against the Colombo Kings. However, being table toppers you can expect a cracker of a fight from them coming into the knockout stage.

In the 1st encounter of the season between the 2 sides, Colombo won by 25 runs in a rain-affected match but in the 2nd encounter, the addition of Mohammad Amir helped Galle Gladiators take their revenge in style as they won by 8 wickets. Both sides are evenly balanced and it all depends on who performs their best on the day.

Weather Report

The venue has been exposed to rainy conditions recently but the weather on the day would be sunny and under great conditions for a full 20-over game. Chances of rain stand only 20%.

Pitch Condition/Report

A batting wicket that prefers teams batting second. However, there has been some help for the pacers at this venue as well and with Amir doing the damage make sure you have a decent pace attack on your side.

CK vs GG Probable Playing XIs:

Galle Gladiators:

Colombo Kings:

Dinesh Chandimal(w), Laurie Evans, Thikshila de Silva, Andre Russell, Angelo Mathews(c), Ashan Priyanjan, Isuru Udana, Dhammika Prasad, Jeffrey Vandersay, Qais Ahmad, Dushmantha Chameera

Top Picks:

Dhanushka Gunathilaka: Scoring at an average of 77, Gunathilaka is cruising away with runs and then some more runs in this tournament. The run machine has been in sublime touch and has been phenomenal when it comes to chasing targets or even setting up totals for the opposition.

Qais Ahmed: Scoring a brisk 50 in just 22 balls, Qais took the game completely away from the Dambulla Vikings the other night and would be riding high on confidence as he would like to continue the momentum in this game as well.

Mohammad Amir: He took 5 wickets against the Colombo Kings the last time and would look to do the same in the knockout semi-final as well. He also took 2 wickets in the previous fixture with an impressive economy of under 3 so be scared Colombo, be very scared!

Ashan Priyaranjan: Helping Qais Ahmed cruise his side into the 1st semi-final, was Ashan Priyaranjan. His impressive 47* off 28 deliveries would have boosted his confidence and might come ahead of Russell in the batting line up.

Captain Options – Dhanushka Gunathilaka, Qais Ahmed

Vice-Captain Options – Mohammad Amir, Ashan Priyaranjan
