Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will start the 3-match T20I series after a clean sweep by the home team Sri Lanka in the ODI series. The 1st T20I is scheduled to take place at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on 17th February, 2024.

Afghanistan is not an easy team to defeat in the T20Is as they have some of the top T20 players by their side. This will be a preparatory series for both the sides for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 which is scheduled to take place in June in the Caribbean and USA.

Let’s take a look at the dream11 team prediction as SL and AFG kick-off the T20I series.

Top Batsman Picks - SL vs AFG Dream11

  • Pathum Nissanka - Nissanka was in brilliant form in the ODI series. He put up a highest score of 210 which is now the highest score ever by any Sri Lankan player in ODIs. He smashed another century in the 3rd ODI as well.
  • Azmatullah Omarzai - Omarzai is the top all-rounder from the Afghanistan team. In 3 ODIs, Omarzai scored 206 runs and picked 3 wickets. We are expecting another thrilling performance from him in the 1st T20.
  • Charith Asalanka - Asalanka scored 111 runs in 3 ODIs and he is a good batter in the white-ball format. He has accumulated 908 runs in 39 T20Is at an average of 25.94.

Top Bowler Picks - SL vs AFG Dream11

  • Wanindu Hasaranga - Sri Lankan star all-rounder Hasaranga looks in good form now after coming back from an injury treatment. He is 2 wickets away from completing the 100-wicket mark in the T20Is. He has taken 4 wickets in 2 ODIs.
  • Qais Ahmed - Qais Ahmed will get chance in the playing 11 after picking 3 wickets in 2 ODIs. We are backing him to pick more wickets in the short format.
  • Noor Ahmed - Noor failed to show his magic in the ODI series and managed to pick just 1 wicket in 2 matches but we are expecting him to do well on this spin track.

Top Picks for Captain and Vice Captain - SL vs AFG Dream11

  • Dream11 Captain Options - Wanindu Hasaranga, Mohammad Nabi
  • Dream11 Vice Captain Options - Azmatullah Omarzai, Charith Asalanka

Players To Avoid - SL vs AFG Dream11

  • Karim Janat - Janat has not been in impressive form lately. We are not expecting him to be in the dream team for the t20 series. If the team puts him in the playing 11 then you can consider keeping him out of the fantasy team.
  • Gulbadin Naib - Gulbadin Naib has scored 16 runs in 2 ODIs. We are expecting him to be in the playing 11 but not expecting much runs or wickets from him in the 1st T20 match.
