SL vs AFG Dream11 Top Fantasy Picks All Rounders, Batsman, Bowlers, Wicket Keepers

Wicketkeeper Kusal Mendis (C), Rahmanullah Gurbaz
Batters Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Ibrahim Zadran, Pathum Nissanka
All-rounders Mohammad Nabi, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga (VC)
Bowlers Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Maheesh Theekshana

Kusal Mendis

Kusal Mendis has been in good form for Sri Lanka. He scored over 300 runs in the T20 World Cup and will be keen to take that form into the ODIs as well. He is an aggressive batter thus if he gets on song, Sri Lanka will be in a great position.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is another good talent to keep an eye on. While he can be inconsistent at times, there is no denying the fact that he is one of the best Afghan batters and can demolish any bowling attack.

Rashid Khan

On helpful Lanka conditions, Rashid Khan can be very dangerous for Sri Lanka. The world is aware of the match-winning abilities of the master spinner.

Wanindu Hasaranga

Wanindu Hasaranga adds a lot of value to the Sri Lanka team. He is one of the best spinners going around and adds a lot of depth to the team with his batting lower down the order.

Mujeeb ur Rahman

Since the surface will be helpful for the spinners, Mujeeb is also a handy player to have. His accuracy and variations make him a dangerous bowler to face.
