SL vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Pathum Nissanka has scored four half-centuries at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in 2022 and the right handed opener is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in this game. Wanindu Hasaranga took 2-42 on Friday and he is well worth backing as Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this ODI.
  • Ibrahim Zadran hit 106 runs from 120 balls on Friday and took the Player of the Match Award. The opener is our pick for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in Sunday’s ODI. On a pitch with pace, Fazalhaq Farooqi took 4-49 in the opening game of the series and he is a strong choice for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • With an impressive record on this ground this year, we recommend backing Pathum Nissanka to score over 33.5 runs in this match.

SL vs AFG 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The second ODI between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan gets underway on Sunday afternoon at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. Afghanistan won the opening match by 60 runs, a win which takes them onto 110 points in the 2020-23 World Cup Super League. Read on as we preview this day-night ODI. The second game of the series begins at 14:30 local time at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.

Sri Lanka need other players to step up in this game after only Pathum Nissanka and Wanindu Hasaranga made significant contributions on Friday. They have a talented squad and should have enough to win this ODI.

Afghanistan showed that they are a force to be reckoned with in ODI cricket with a convincing win on Friday. However, the often struggle for consistency and it will require another impressive performance to go 2-0 up.

SL vs AFG Match Toss Prediction

It was another victory for the team batting first in Pallekele on Friday. We are predicting that both skippers will choose to bat first ahead of this ODI.

SL vs AFG, McLean Park Pitch Report

This game will be played on the same wicket as was used in the opening ODI so expect the pace of the surface to drop slightly. That said, there will still be good carry and a par score will be around 290.

Pallekele Weather Report

Light rain is forecast across the opening two hours of this game but we expect to still see plenty of play in this match with dry conditions from the early evening onwards.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

After a successful 2022 Asia Cup campaign, Sri Lanka’s chances during the T20 World Cup were hampered by injuries to key bowlers and they continued to have bad luck in that department with Pramod Madushan sustaining a hamstring injury before Friday’s game. We expect the same XI to be selected for his match.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka- the top order batter continues to be an integral part of Sri Lanka’s batting line-up across all formats. He hit 85 runs from 83 balls in the first ODI.
  • Kasun Rajitha- the 29 year old right arm medium fast bowler dismissed the experienced Mohammad Nabi on Friday. He has the speed and accuracy to be very hard to face on this pitch.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga- the bowling all-rounder delivered with both bat and ball in the opening ODI. He dismissed Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Najibullah Zadran before hitting 66 runs from 46 balls.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka won three ODIs in a row against Australia in June but have since lost successive games in this format.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

Friday’s strong performance and victory means that Afghanistan are very close to securing qualification to the 2023 ODI World Cup. Their pace bowlers had the most success on the surface in Pallekele and we expect to see the same side selected ahead of this game.

AFG Key Players

  • Ibrahim Zadrani- the only centurion of the first ODI struck 11 fours during his 120 balls at the crease. He looks very comfortable at this level and averages 52.20 from six ODI innings.
  • Rashid Khan- although the leg-spinner only picked up one wicket on Friday, he conceded only 40 runs from his eight overs. He will once again be a major threat to Sri Lanka on this pitch in this ODI.
  • Fazalhaq Farooqi- the 22 year old left-arm pace bowler continues to produce exceptional performances in ODI cricket. He has taken 17 wickets from eight games and picked up his best figures at the Pallekele Stadium on Friday.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan have won five ODIs in a row and 11 of their last 13 in this format.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Nabi, Hasmatullah Shahidi (c), Rashid Khan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Yamin Ahmadzai

Who will win Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan 2nd ODI Match?

Under the coaching of Chris Silverwood, overall there has been progress for Sri Lanka but there have been heavy defeats along the way. With quality players, used to the home conditions, we expect them to level the series.

SL vs AFG Top Team Batsmen

We are backing Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis and Dinesh Chandimal with the bat for Sri Lanka. After a strong year, it is no surprise to see the bookies awarding the top odds to Nissanka ahead of this ODI. Chandimal has hit four ODI centuries and 24 half-centuries since making his debut in this format in 2010

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmat Shah are our picks with the bat for Afghanistan. Gurbaz hit 53 on Friday and the bookmakers fancy him to deliver for the second successive innings at this venue. Shah also hit a half-century, his 26th score of 50+ in ODIs.

SL vs AFG Top Team Bowlers

Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana and Kasun Rajitha are our tips for Sri Lanka’s top bowlers. Hasaranga is the heavy favourite with the bookies to be Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker and he has the talent to deliver on any kind of surface. Rajitha enjoyed the pace in the wicket on Friday and we expect more of the same in this ODI.

We recommend Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Fazalhaq Farooqi with the ball for Afghanistan. Khan is the clear favourite with the bookmakers and bowled very accurately in the opening game of the series. Farooqi was quick and consistent on Friday and the Sri Lankan batters will not be keen to face him again in this match.

🏆 Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan Prediction

The home side desperately need to win this match to give a boost to their chances of qualifying automatically for the 2023 World Cup. However, we do not expect Afghanistan to be pushovers, and the away side will be extremely competitive again in this ODI. Overall, we expect the experienced batters for Sri Lanka to deliver in this match and are backing Sri Lanka to get the victory to level the series 1-1.
