AFGH vs SL Dream11 Predictions

Asia Cup, 2018

Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka, Group B, Match 02

In the second match of the Group B, Sri Lanka will take on Afghanistan in what is a do-or-die encounter for the Angelo Matthews-led unit.

Venue:- Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

Match Timing:- Monday, September 17, 2018, 05:00 PM IST

Sri Lanka made a harakiri of what was a dream start provided by their talisman Lasith Malinga, who claimed two wickets in an over upon his return to have Bangladesh reeling at 2-3 in 2 overs. With Tamim Iqbal retiring hurt after being hit on his wrist by Suranga Lakmal, Mushfiqur Rahim (144) took matters in his own hands to get his side to a respectable 261 in 49.3 overs. Just like their fielding, Sri Lana was abysmal with the bat as they succumbed to 124 all-out in 35.2 overs.

Sri Lanka’s defeat at the hands of Bangladesh makes their encounter against Afghanistan a do-or-die affair for them and it would not be easy with Afghanistan boasting of a formidable bowling attack spearheaded by the trio of Mujeeb, Rashid and Mohammad Nabi.
