Galle Gladiators and Jaffna Stallions have played some great cricket in the inaugural edition of the Lanka Premier League. They have exhibited a perfect mixture of character and class, which has sealed a place for them in the all-important final. The Stallions finished third in the league stage, which the Gladiators narrowly edged past the Kandy Tuskers to advance to the semis.
In the semi-final, they faced the table-toppers in Colombo Kings and came out on top. The Stallions also got the better of a very formidable Dambulla Viiking. Having done all the hard work, the teams will now be desperate to cross one final hurdle. They know it well that just 40 more overs of quality cricket can etch their names in golden letters in the cherished books of history.
