The 9th match of LPL 2020 will be played between the Gaul Gladiators and the Jaffna Stallions at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, Soriawave, Hambantota.
The match is scheduled to start at 03:30 pm local time and IST. The match will be telecasted on Sony Six.
Galle Gladiators will take on Jaffna Stallions in match 9 of the Lanka Premier League. Both teams are placed at opposite ends of the points table and their performance is opposite. The Jaffna Stallion have won all three of their games while the Galle Gladiators have lost all three.
Jaffna Stallions will be the favorite to go to this game. They want to use the momentum they have and give it four straight wins. On the other hand, Gaul Gladiators are still searching for their first win of the tournament and the game certainly seems hard to record any points. They have to play with their skins to defeat the stallion.
