The Galle Gladiators will honk the Colombo Starts in match 12 of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2022 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, December 13. With the tournament fast advancing, both teams need to improve their game from now on to compete in the title fight.
The Gladiators are in third place in the points table but still have a lot of work to do, recording just a single win out of three games with two points on their aggregate against a negative net run rate of -0.636. Galle recorded a 25-run victory over the Colombo Stars in the reverse match and will face the Kandy Falcons on Monday, December 12.
The Colombo Stars, on the other hand, have only managed one win from their three appearances and are down two points with a dismal NRR of -2.083. They would love to avenge their reverse fixture loss to the Gladiators, but to do so they have a task ahead of them against the defending champion Jaffna Kings.

Usually, Pallekele’s surface was spin-friendly and teams first enjoyed bowling at the venue. However, there may be a change in strategy with back-to-back matches taking place at this venue and as the evening games are played on used wickets, the captain who wins the toss can bat first.
