Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan 

Asia Cup T20 Match Prediction & Tips 

Time: 03 Sep, 07:30 PM (IST)
Series: Asia Cup T20I Match
Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah  

SL vs AFG Dream11 Prediction:

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz top scored for Afghanistan when these sides met last Saturday. The opener is our pick for their highest run scorer in this match. Rashid Khan took 3-22 against Bangladesh and the spinner is our tip for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
  • Kusal Mendis hit 60 runs from 37 balls in the win over Bangladesh and the top order batter is well worth backing as Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in this game. Wanindu Hasaranga took two wickets on Thursday and is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against Afghanistan.
  • We recommend backing Rashid Khan to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

Weather & Pitch Report:
⛅ Weather:

Sunny to begin with before clear evening skies. The temperature will be above 34 degrees from start to finish.

Pitch Report:
This should be another good wicket for spin bowlers. The Sharjah pitch often keeps low and a score of 140+ can sometimes be hard to chase down.

Toss Prediction:
Both teams have chosen to field first when they have won the toss in this tournament. We predict that Mohammed Nabi and Dasun Shanaka will both decide to bowl first in Sharjah.

SL vs AFG TEAM NEWS:
SL Team News:

Asitha Fernando made his IT20 debut in the win over Bangladesh on Thursday coming in for Matheesha Pathirana. He dismissed opener Sabbir Rahman but was the most expensive of Sri Lanka’s bowlers. Although his position will come up for review, we expect him to keep his place.

AFG Team News:
After their comprehensive win over Sri Lanka in their opening game of the Asia Cup 2022, Afghanistan were unchanged for their game against Bangladesh on Tuesday. With two wins from two, we expect the same XI for this Super Four match.
