SL vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Pathum Nissanka has been in excellent form for Sri Lanka over the last 18 months and he is our tip for their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga has format best figures of 4-9 and the spinner is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against Afghanistan.
  • Hazratullah Zazai has a strike-rate of 144.50 in this format with a top score of 162 not out. He is our pick for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer against Sri Lanka. Rashid Khan is one of the most feared spin bowlers in T20 cricket and he is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • We recommend Wanindu Hasaranga to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

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

Sri Lanka and Afghanistan begin the 2022 Asia Cup on Saturday evening in Dubai. Sri Lanka finished bottom of Group B in the 2018 Asia Cup in the UAE. Afghanistan finished in fourth place after advancing to the Super Four stage in 2018. Read on as we preview this opening game of the tournament. The match gets underway at 18:00 local time.

Sri Lanka’s results have picked up since the appointment of Chris Silverwood as Head Coach and they could well surprise a few teams in this tournament. They will fancy their chances in this match.

Afghanistan come into this match on the back of losing a five game series away in Ireland. However, they should find the atmospheric conditions and pitches to suit them better in Dubai.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

There have been two changes to Sri Lanka’s squad for Asia Cup 2022 since it was first announced. Dushmantha Chameera and Kasun Rajitha both had to pull out through injury and were replaced by Asitha Fernando and Pramod Madushan. There are no additional injury worries in the team.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The 24 year old top order batter has scored five half-centuries in this format alongside centuries in ODIs and Tests.
  • Kusal Mendis - The keeper-batter hit 69 not out from 58 balls earlier in the year in an IT20 against Australia and loves to turn on a performance on the big stage.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - The bowling all-rounder has taken 100 international wickets and is a constant threat across all formats but is particularly dangerous in IT20s.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka ended a run of five successive IT20 defeats by beating Australia by four wickets in their last game in this format.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

The Afghanistan team were well supported by neutrals during the 2021 T20 World Cup due to their fearless approach to batting against the bigger sides. However, they have struggled when playing the lesser teams as favourites. They have a fully fit squad to select from.

AFG Key Players

  • Hazratullah Zazai - the 24 year old left-handed opener has already gained an excellent reputation as a white ball specialist. He has hit a century and three fifties in this format.
  • Usman Ghani - The middle order batter struck 44 not out from 40 balls against Ireland in very different conditions in the last IT20. He also hit a half-century in the opening game of that series.
  • Rashid Khan - The leg-spinner was below par in the series against Ireland but will be far more penetrative in the conditions in Dubai.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan lost their last IT20 game to Ireland but had won the previous two matches in the series.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Afsar Zazai, Usman Ghani, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammed Nabi, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Naveen ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fareed Ahmad

Sri Lanka are the favourites with the bookies after their win over Australia in their last IT20. However, it would be a mistake to completely rule out Afghanistan.

This should be an excellent curtain raiser for the tournament with both sides coming in under very little pressure but with talented players. We do not expect either team to dominate and are predicting a close game. We are backing Sri Lanka to win this match.
