The Lanka Premier League has just finished its league stage. And has found its top 4 teams for the Semifinals. Meanwhile the 1st Semifinal will be played between Colombo kings and Galle Gladiators. Colombo Kings had finished 1st on the points table while Galle Gladiators had finished 4th on the table. Colombo Kings completely dominated the league stage and truely deserved to be on top of the table. On the other hand Galle Gladiators have qualified for the 1st Semifinal only because their net run rate was just better than the Kandy Tuskers. Colombo kings have lost just 2 matches in the whole tournament so far.
Meanwhile if we look at the teams on paper. Colombo Kings clearly have got an upper hand because of the big names in their side. They have players like Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews and Andre Russel. As all these can win matches single handedly for their side. Another big name in their squad will be Qais Ahmed who has impressed everyone with his all round ability. Therefore Colombo Kings are serious contenders to win this 1st Semifinal. But not to forget that it was Galle Gladiators who handed Colombo kings, one of their 2 losses. And they will be eager to strike a surprise once again.
