SL vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz top scored for Afghanistan when these sides met last Saturday. The opener is our pick for their highest run scorer in this match. Rashid Khan took 3-22 against Bangladesh and the spinner is our tip for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
  • Kusal Mendis hit 60 runs from 37 balls in the win over Bangladesh and the top order batter is well worth backing as Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in this game. Wanindu Hasaranga took two wickets on Thursday and is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against Afghanistan.
  • We recommend backing Rashid Khan to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

SL vs AFG Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Asia Cup 2022

Afghanistan and Sri Lanka go head to head in the first match of the Super Four stage of the 2022 Asia Cup on Saturday evening. Afghanistan won Group B with Sri Lanka in second place two points behind the table toppers. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah at 18:00 local time.

Afghanistan came into this tournament after losing a series to Ireland 3-2. However, they ended that series in good form and have continued to play very strong cricket in the Asia Cup.

Sri Lanka got the win over Bangladesh but were not overly convincing in the fixture. They have already been well beaten by Afghanistan in this tournament and this will be a very tough match.

SL vs AFG Match Toss Prediction

Both teams have chosen to field first when they have won the toss in this tournament. We predict that Mohammed Nabi and Dasun Shanaka will both decide to bowl first in Sharjah.

SL vs AFG Pitch Report

This should be another good wicket for spin bowlers. The Sharjah pitch often keeps low and a score of 140+ can sometimes be hard to chase down.

Weather Report

Sunny to begin with before clear evening skies. The temperature will be above 34 degrees from start to finish.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Asitha Fernando made his IT20 debut in the win over Bangladesh on Thursday coming in for Matheesha Pathirana. He dismissed opener Sabbir Rahman but was the most expensive of Sri Lanka’s bowlers. Although his position will come up for review, we expect him to keep his place.

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis- the right-handed opener hit four fours and three sixes against Bangladesh. His highest score in this format is 79.
  • Maheesh Theekshana- the spinner got the crucial wicket of Shakib Al Hasan in Dubai on Thursday. He ended with impressive figures of 1-23 from four overs.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga- the bowling all-rounder was expensive against Bangladesh but still dismissed Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mahmudullah. He has 65 wickets from 40 IT20s.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have won two of their last three IT20s and showed excellent character to win a very close contest with Bangladesh on Thursday.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

After their comprehensive win over Sri Lanka in their opening game of the Asia Cup 2022, Afghanistan were unchanged for their game against Bangladesh on Tuesday. With two wins from two, we expect the same XI for this Super Four match.

  • Rashid Khan- after going wicketless in his opening game of the tournament, the spinner picked up the wickets of Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain and Mahmudullah on Tuesday.

Afghanistan are in excellent form with two successive wins and four victories from their last five in this format.

🏆 Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan Prediction

After the way that Afghanistan beat Sri Lanka in the group stage only one week ago, it is very hard to see Sri Lanka having enough with either bat or ball to win this game. We predict that Afghanistan will be too strong across the match and are backing them to win.
