GM vs CS Winner Prediction

A look at the recent form of the players and the overall balance of the team gives us the idea that Colombo Strikers are the favourites to win the match.

GM vs CS Top Player Picks

Alex Hales (GM)

The 35-year-old is one of the bankable batters in the Galle Marvels line-up. Alex Hales has the ability to provide blazing starts to his team and that makes him a potential great choice for the fantasy contests.

Maheesh Theekshana (GM)

Maheesh Theekshana could play a key role for Galle Marvels in the upcoming clash. The mystery spinner's ability to pick wickets at various match stages makes him an invaluable asset for any team. Theekshana has the experience of playing 148 T20Is and has picked up 151 wickets at an average of 24.74 and an economy rate of 6.68.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (CS)

Rahmanullah Gurbaz had an excellent T20 World Cup 2024 tournament, which recently concluded. He was the tournament's top run scorer, with 281 runs in 8 innings. He will be a key player for the Colombo Strikers this season of the Lanka Premier League.

Muhammad Waseem (CS)

Muhammad Waseem is in excellent form right now. He was outstanding in the recently concluded Emirates D10 2024, scoring 574 runs in 13 innings with a strike rate of 265.74.

GM vs CS Differential Picks

Tim Seifert (GM)

Tim Seifert, the Kiwi wicket-keeper batter will be crucial for his team. He played decently in his last T20I series against Pakistan, scoring 85 runs with one fifty. His ability to score quickly and his batting position make him a good differential choice for the game.

Matheesha Pathirana (CS)

Sri Lanka pace sensation Matheesha Pathirana grabbed the limelight after being bought for a record-breaking USD 120,000 in the Lanka Premier League (LPL) Player Auction. Although his performance was not up to mark in the T20 World Cup 2024, he performed well in the IPL 2024.

GM vs CS Fantasy Expert Advice

Considering the conditions and probable-XIs, a combination of 2-3-3-3 or 3-2-3-3 would be ideal for this fixture.
