The Galle Gladiators (GG) will be clashing against Kandy Falcons (KF) in the fourth match of the Lanka Premier League 2022 (LPL) at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium (MRICS) in Hambantota on Wednesday (December 7). The Gladiators finished the last season in the second position in the group stage table and lost the final against Jaffna Kings by 23 runs. 

They started the season with a 24-run defeat against the Kings in the tournament opener. While the bowlers did a great job to bowl out their opponents for 137, batters struggled for runs and were bowled out for 113. Captain Kusal Mendis shone with a 51-run knock but the middle-order struggled for impactful partnerships while chasing a small target.

Kandy Falcons (formerly Kandy Warriors) finished the last season in the last position in the group table with just two wins from eight games. But they will be looking for a good start with the new squad under the leadership of Wanindu Hasaranga and new recruits Pathum Nissanka, Andre Fletcher, Fabian Allen, and Carlos Brathwaite.

Pitch Report

The surface in Hambantota isn't too kind to the batters as Kandy Falcons are the only side to have surpassed the score of 150 runs at this venue so far. Spinners will play a vital role in the contest as the pitch slows down considerably in the latter stages of the match. The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first on the sluggish surface.
