JS vs GG Lanka Premier League Fantasy Prediction: Jaffna Stallions vs Galle Gladiators – 27 November 2020 (Hambantota)
Jaffna Stallions will take on Galle Gladiators in the League Match of LPL 2020, aka Lanka Premier League which, will be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad. The Island nation finally got its own T20 league and, some big names will be on the cards.
The Stallions have a really stable squad under their ranks and, they are a team to beat. Johnson Charles is going to miss the game due to his quarantine protocols. The likes of Thisara Perera and Shoaib Malik are all-rounders of this team, whereas they have a lot of good bowlers as well. They would like to start the tournament with a bang.
The Gladiators will miss their captain Shahid Afridi in this game. They have some aggressive top-order players in their ranks, whereas the bowling also looks strong. However, the lack of experience in their middle-order is a threat to this side. Galle Gladiators would also want a winning start to the tournament.
