AFG vs SL Betting Tips

  • 20 year old keeper-batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz has hit five half-centuries in IT20s and the Afghanistan opener is our tip for their highest run scorer against Sri Lanka. With the ball, Rashid Khan has taken 311 international wickets and the spinner is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Pathum Nissanka has hit 137 runs in the tournament so far and the opener is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in this match. Wanindu Hasaranga has taken wickets in five out of six matches in the competition and the spinner is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against Afghanistan.
  • We recommend backing Wanindu Hasaranga to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

AFG vs SL Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022

Afghanistan take on Sri Lanka in Match 21 of the 2022 T20 World Cup at the Gabba, Brisbane on Tuesday afternoon. Afghanistan have lost to England and had no-results against New Zealand and Ireland without a ball being bowled. Sri Lanka have won one and lost two matches in the second round. Read on as we preview this Group 1 clash. The Super 12 stage game begins at 14:00 local time.

Afghanistan fancied their chances against Ireland but saw the match washed out on Friday in Melbourne. This will be a tough game but Afghanistan will be raring to play after two successive abandonments.

Sri Lanka have been very unlucky with injuries and their pace bowling attack is not up to its usual standard. However, their spin bowlers have enough talent to beat any opposition when they get it right.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

There was one change for Sri Lanka ahead of their defeat to New Zealand with the injured Binura Fernando replaced with Kasun Rajitha. With plenty of injuries across their squad, there are not many options left to make further changes to the XI.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The right handed opener made a five ball duck in Sydney on Saturday but we expect him to enjoy the more batter friendly conditions in Brisbane.
  • Maheesh Theekshana - The 22 year old off-spinner has picked up at least one wicket in every game of this tournament. He dismissed Finn Allen in the first over against New Zealand.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - With 10 wickets from his six appearances in the 2022 T20 World Cup, Hasaranga is the leading wicket taker in the T20 World Cup 2022.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka’s seven wicket defeat against Australia ended a run of three successive wins in this format.

AFG vs SL Top Team Batsmen

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran and Najibullah Zadran are our tips to be the key batters for Afghanistan. Gurbaz has an IT20 strike-rate of 138.05 and his attacking nature has been recognised with the odds from the bookmakers. Najibullah Zadran has hit eight half-centuries in IT20s.

We are backing Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa with the bat for Sri Lanka. Mendis hit successive half-centuries earlier in the tournament and his odds to be Sri Lanka’s top batter reflect this. Rajapaksa hit 34 runs from 22 balls against New Zealand.

AFG vs SL Top Team Bowlers

We recommend Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Fazalhaq Farooqi with the ball for Afghanistan. Khan has been the leader of Afghanistan’s attack for many years and the spinner often comes into games as the favourite to pick up the most wickets. Farooqi has taken 19 wickets from 15 games in this format.

Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana and Chamika Karunaratne are our bowling picks for Sri Lanka. Although Hasaranga can be expensive, he is always a wicket taking threat and the bookmakers know this. Karunaratne will enjoy the Gabba and took a wicket in the games against Ireland and Australia
