The stage is set for a cracker of a contest as Galle Marvels lock horns with Colombo Strikers in Match 5 of the Lanka Premier League 2024 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.

Both teams are riding high on the back of victories in their opening encounters, promising an exciting clash for fans.

GM vs CS: Team Previews

Galle Marvels

Galle Marvels clinched their first win by five wickets against the Jaffna Kings, showcasing a well-rounded performance. Their bowlers set the tone, restricting the Kings to a modest 177.

Zahoor Khan led the charge with a three-wicket haul, while Dwaine Pretorius and Isuru Udana chipped in with two wickets each.

The chase was a nail-biter, but Captain Niroshan Dickwella (47) and Alex Hales (65) laid a solid foundation.

Despite the middle-order batsmen – Tim Seifert, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Janith Liyanage – getting starts but failing to convert them into big scores, the team held its nerve.

The chase went down to the wire, with a boundary on the final ball securing the win. The Marvels will be keen to iron out the kinks from the last win and secure their second win in the upcoming LPL 2024 clash.

Colombo Strikers

On the other hand, Colombo Strikers put in a commanding performance in their first match, thrashing the Kandy Falcons by 51 runs.

They amassed a formidable 198/7, thanks to contributions from Muhammad Waseem (32), Sadeera Samarawickrama (48), Captain Thisara Perera (38), Shadab Khan (20), and Chamika Karunaratne (25*).

Openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Shevon Daniel couldn't find their footing, a setback they’ll aim to rectify.

The Strikers' bowlers, however, stole the show. Dunith Wellalage and hattrick hero Shadab Khan dismantled the Falcons with four wickets each, skittling them out for 147.

Matheesha Pathirana, bowling just one over for 16 runs, will be eager to make a stronger impact in this fixture as the Strikers look to make it two in a row.

GM vs CS: Pallekele International Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium has proven to be a batsman's delight, with an average score of 177 in the first three matches of the tournament. The new ball has been conducive to stroke-making, allowing batsmen to play their shots freely. However, as the match progresses, spinners have found considerable assistance. Out of the three matches played so far, two have been won by teams chasing, and one by team batting first. This trend suggests that the captain winning the toss might opt to field first, banking on the chase-friendly nature of the pitch.
