Match 6 of the Lanka Premier League has the Kandy Tuskers taking on the Galle Gladiators at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium on Monday.
Both teams have lost all their games so far and stand winless at the bottom of the table. While the Tuskers came close on both occasions, the Gladiators were outplayed by both their opponents.
Despite the likes of Shahid Afridi and Mohd Amir donning their jersey, the Gladiators haven't really come up with a perfect performance so far. However, they would want to come up with the goods against a strong Tuskers side that is struggling with a few injuries to their overseas players.
Although the Tuskers have shown promise in both their games, they will head into this game as the underdogs against the Gladiators. Either way, we should be in for a cracking game of cricket at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium on Monday.

Despite this being the second game of the day, the pitch should play nicely, with 180-190 being a competitive total. The bowlers will need to be smart with their lines and lengths, with the dimensions of the ground and the likelihood of dew going against them. Both teams will look to go big from ball one in what should be a high-scoring encounter.
