GGD vs KDW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 19, 2023

It’s been a remarkable journey in this year’s Lanka Premier League and for the first time in four years, we are set to have a new winner in the competition. We are now left with just one match before the title and Jaffna Kings, the defending champions of all preceding seasons, are already knocked out. As predicted by us, they were defeated by B-Love Kandy in the first eliminator of the competition. 




Up next in the tournament, we have B-Love Kandy set to take the field again in a bid to get past Galle Titans. The winner of this match will progress to play Dambulla Aura in the title match. The match between the two sides is to be played at the same venue as all other knockout fixtures - R Premadasa Cricket Ground, Colombo, on 19th August 2023. With everything that could be at stake in this match, both sides are expecting to come out all guns blazing and a cracker of a contest is on the cards. 



GGD vs KDW Team Previews

Galle Gladiators

Galle Titans have had a tournament exactly opposite to that of B-Love Kandy. They started off in an exquisite manner only but stuttered in the back-end of the league stage only to narrowly make it to the qualifier. It was the superior net run-rate that they gathered in the initial phase of the tournament, which kept them above the other teams on the points table. They too finished with eight points against their name but with a better net run-rate as they pipped B-Love Kandy for the qualifier spot. 

They are coming off an embarrassing loss at the hands of Dambulla Aura and will be itching to bounce back to winning ways. They have been dismal in most of their recent matches and would need to put their best foot forward. They have an accomplished team on paper and if they can play to their potential here, they can really make things difficult for the B-Love Kandy. 

Galle Gladiators Playing 11

Lasith Croospulle, Sohan de Livera, Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Dasun Shanaka, Najibullah Zadran, Seekkuge Prasanna, Sonal Dinusha, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Tabraiz Shamsi.

Kandy Warriors

B-Love Kandy may have been on a winning juggernaut in their recent matches, but their journey up until now has not been easy by any stretch of imagination. They were at a brink of early elimination from the tournament, but a strong comeback ensured that they are not only back in the contention but are also prime candidates for the title. They finished with eight points to their name with a decent net run-rate of 0.185. They are coming into this match with an excellent win over Jaffna Kings and will be brimming with confidence. 

All in all, B-Love Kandy has been sensational in the last few matches, led ably by their skipper Wanindu Hasaranga. The others have chipped in beautifully and that is what the fans and the management will expect from the team in this upcoming match as well. If they can do that and play to their potential, the Galle Titans will have their work cut out. 

Kandy Warriors Playing 11

Thanuka Dabare, Mohammad Haris, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews, Chaturanga de Silva, Asif Ali, Wanidu Hasaranga, Sahan Arachchige, Lahiru Madushanka, Mohammad Hasnain, Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

GGD vs KDW Betting Tips

Being a knockout, needless to say, this is a match that carries all the importance. Both sides would be coming out with everything they have and the team that handles pressure will likely come out on the top. Considering how the two sides have done of late and their on-paper combinations, a bet on B-Love Kandy should be the way to go here.
