KT vs GG Dream11 Prediction: Match no 6 of Lanka Premier League 2020 will be witnessed on Monday eve between Kandy Tuskers and Galle Gladiators at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota.
Both teams have had a horrible start to their respective campaigns. Both teams have lost their first two games of the competition and are placed at the bottom-most positions on the points table. They still are searching for their winning combination and need to put the right foot on the pedal to get going. The approach from both these teams has been positive, but it’s only the execution that hasn’t gone as per the plans. A loss here for either team will make their road to the semi-final even tough. Who will prevail in this contest? Well, we have to wait for the result in the evening.
Kandy Tuskers vs Galle Gladiators
Sri Lanka T20
Date: 30th November 2020
Time: 08:00 PM IST
Venue: Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota
Brief score of the last result at the venue: Colombo Kings 96/1 (5 Ov) defeated Galle Gladiators 62/2 (5 Ov) by 34 runs.
The surface has generally favored the batsmen so far in the competition. This could be the case again here in this game as the wicket has some even bounce due to the greenery, which means the ball will come on to the bat nicely.
