Lanka Premier League Fantasy Players Picks: Colombo Stars

The top two wicket-takers from the previous season were Seekkuge Prasanna and Dushmantha Chameera; however, Chameera has been traded to the Galle Gladiators for the current season. Both Jeffrey Vandersay and Naveen-ul-Haq, who are still on the Stars roster, picked up 11 and 10 wickets, respectively.

Captain: Angelo Mathews

Key Players: Seekkuge Prasanna, Charith Asalanka, Dwaine Pretorius, Dominic Drakes, Fazalhaq Farooqi

Lanka Premier League Fantasy Players Picks: Dambulla Giants

Dasun Shanaka, a Sri Lankan, will serve as the Dambulla Giants team’s captain. His batting average in the previous edition was respectable; he scored 139 runs while taking just one wicket with the ball, but his leadership of the team counts much.

The Giants have acquired Bhanuka Rajapaksa, a strong hitter, from the Galle Gladiators for the 2017 season. Last year, he scored 179 runs in 10 games.

Ben Cutting, D’Arcy Short, Tim Seifert, Sandeep Lamichhane, Haider Ali, and Sheldon Cottrell are part of an international fleet that strongly powers up this side.

While leading wicket-taker Imran Tahir has departed the team, Nuwan Pradeep, who picked up 10 wickets in the last edition, will play for the Giants once more this year.
Captain: Dasun Shanaka

Key Players: Bhanuka Rajapaksa, D’Arcy Short, Tim Seifert, Sheldon Cottrell

Lanka Premier League Fantasy Players Picks: Galle Gladiators

The Galle Gladiators, who finished second in the previous season, suffered a 23-run defeat. The LPL league’s top run scorer, Danushka Gunathilaka, has less chance of making the starting 11 given his recent scandal in Australia.

Kusal Mendis, the captain, finished the LPL 2021 season as the league’s top run scorer with 327 runs scored in 10 matches. Only Mendis will participate this season out of the Gladiators’ four hitters who each scored 100+ runs in the previous year.

Along South the Protea Janneman Malan and the Guyanese cricketer Sherfane Rutherford, the squad also includes players from Pakistan, including Sarfaraz Ahmed, Imad Wasim, and Azam Khan. Nuwan Thushara is the lone top wicket-taker from the previous season.

The current champions, Jaffna Kings, also took first place in the inaugural LPL season. To win their second LPL trophy, Kings beat Galle Gladiators in the championship game.

This year, Thisara Perera will serve as the team’s captain once more, and the team’s potent batting lineup will include foreigners Shoaib Malik and Rahmanullah Gurbaz. In the previous season, Perera scored 190 runs, Malik scored 164 runs, and Gurbaz scored 207 runs. This year, Tristan Stubbs and Evin Lewis will join the Kings’ hitting lineup.
