Galle Gladiators are set to take on Kandy Warriors in match 10 of the Lanka Premier League (LPL). The Gladiators are on a roll as they have won two games out of the four they have played. They have only lost one, with the other game ending in a no result. The Gladiators are currently placed second on the points table with five points.

The team has a strong batting lineup but the players have been inconsistent. However, the bowling led by Samit Patel, Dhananjaya Lakshan and Mohammad Hafeez has done well.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are yet to win a game in the three matches they have played. The team is placed last with a negative net runrate of -0.842. In their first meeting with the Gladiators, the Warriors managed to give a tough fight but ended up losing the match by 4 wickets. Against Dambulla Giants too, the loss was just by 20 runs.

On both occasions, the batters failed to close the innings well. Barring Rovman Powell and Charith Asalanka, the rest have not converted their starts into something substantial.

Pitch Report

The R Premadasa pitch in Colombo has got slower, with the track assisting spinners more. Teams batting first have an advantage as chasing is not the easiest task on this surface.
