DHG vs GGD Match Prediction - Dec 17, 2022

It is a battle of the bottom 2 teams on the points table as the Dambulla Aura take on the Galle Gladiators in the ongoing edition of the Lanka Premiere League.

Both the teams aren’t in the best of forms this season and that means one can find decent odds suiting their prediction if they were to compare a few reputed betting sites. 

DHG vs GGD Team Previews

Dambulla Giants

Dambulla Aura is off to a disastrous start to the season and is the only team in the competition which is yet to register a win so far. It is in the last place on the points table and it has already finished 5 of its 8 fixtures. The team will need to win each of its last 3 matches if it wants to be in the fray for a top-4 finish.

The batting for Dambulla Aura has been extremely disappointing, to say the least as only captain Dasun Shanaka has managed to cross the 100-run mark aggregate score. Openers Shevon Daniel and Lasith Croospulle were both dismissed for a duck in the latest match played against the Colombo Stars as Aura could muster a total of 89 after being invited to bat first.

The Stars achieved the target in the 12th over itself, losing just 1 wicket. There is nothing much to write about the bowling effort of the team too, as the opposition has just blitzed through the below-par bowling effort. Lahiru Kumara has picked up 6 wickets from his 4 appearances while Pramod Madushan has scalped 3 from his 3 matches.

Galle Gladiators

The Gladiators were the runner-ups in the previous season but haven’t fared too well this time around. With 2 wins in 5 matches, they trail the second-placed Jaffna Kings by 4 points and face a difficult path to achieve a top-2 finish.

After winning back-to-back matches against the Stars and the Falcons, the Gladiators once again faltered in their most recent outing, losing against the Colombo Stars by 2 wickets. Captain Kusal Mendis has by far been the best batsman in the squad, scoring 177 runs from 5 innings. He played a superb inning of 73 runs in the last game to lead the Gladiators to a huge total of 193 from their quota of 20 overs.

Asad Shafique, who was playing his first match of the season gave him good support and scored a fighting 58 off just 33 deliveries. However, the Stars fought back hard and achieved the target at the very last delivery. Nuwan Thushara has been a good bowling asset for the Gladiators and is second on the top wicket-takers list of the tournament with 9 wickets. He has received decent support from Nuwan Pradeep, Wahab Riaz, and Iftikhar Ahmed.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo is a well-balanced one. It has a good and consistent bounce, allowing the batsmen to play their shots confidently. The average first innings score in T20 matches played here is around 150 runs and should be considered to be a par score.

The spinners are likely to see some turn as the match progresses, while the windy conditions may help the quicker bowlers get some swing. The weather is expected to be overcast and humid, but the chances of rain are minuscule.

The temperature is expected to remain between 25-30 degrees Celsius. 

DHG vs GGD Betting Tips

We are backing the Galle Gladiators to win this match. The opposition team is going through one of the worst patches in the history of this league, and none of its players seem to be in good form. The Gladiators on the other hand have a few good batsmen in the form of Kusal Mendis, Thanuka Dabare, and Asad Shafique, while the bowlers, including Nuwan Thushara and Nuwan Pradeep too, are in decent form.

Bet on a Galle Gladiators win.
