JS vs GG Dream11 Team Prediction | Match 2 | Lanka Premier League | 27th Nov 2020
Jaffna Stallions will take on Galle Gladiators in the 2nd match of LPL 2020. The Stallions are named as one of the early favorites to win this tournament because of the presence of star players like Shoaib Malik, Johnson Charles.
On the other hand, Galle Gladiators are looking good on papers as well, thanks to the presence of Mohammad Amir, Shahid Afridi. However, the skipper Afridi is likely to miss the initial matches of the tournament because he landed a bit late in Sri Lanka after missing out on the flight earlier. In his absence, Bhanuka Rajapaksa is likely to lead the side. Let’s go through our Dream11 Team Prediction for the upcoming game of Lanka Premier League 2020 between JS and GG.

JS vs GG Dream11 Team News:
- In the absence of star players like Ravi Bopara, captain Thisara Perera will have to take the additional responsibility. He hasn’t played the game since March, he will be raring to go well for sure.
- Shoaib Malik needs no introduction. The Pakistan all-rounder had a good outing in the National T20 Cup and in his final match in the tournament, he had scored 56* from 22 deliveries.
- Binura Fernando is in good touch and will play a major role here. He had managed to score back to back fifties in his last two first-class innings and is an excellent bowler too.
- Galle Gladiators will miss a few of the stars but they do have enough power to put up a fight for the trophy. This is a huge opportunity for Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai who was one of the leading run-scorers in the Shpageeza Cricket League.
- Sri Lanka’s Danushka Gunathilaka will be holding the middle-order together for the team. He is an excellent all-rounder with 1820 runs and 30 wickets in his 82 T20 matches.
- Usman Shinwari is yet another overseas player to watch out for in this tournament. The 26-year-old has 102 wickets from his 83 matches and is also a useful batsman.
