Head to Head


Sri Lanka and Afghanistan have only met on two previous occasions with each winning one. They met in the 2022 Asia Cup opener which Afghanistan won comfortably by eight wickets in Dubai.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka lost their opening Asia Cup match by eight wickets to Afghanistan. That meant they had to win their last group match against Bangladesh, which they did in thrilling fashion. 

Bowling first in Dubai, Chamika Karunaratne was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2-32 in four overs. Bangladesh scored a very competitive 183 runs.

Kusal Mendis was superb in the chase, hitting 60 off 37 balls. Dasun Shanaka scored 45 off 33 late on to secure the win by two wickets with four balls to spare.

Sri Lanka Team News


Sri Lanka should remain unchanged for this fixture.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan qualified for the Super 4 with convincing victories over Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Their bowling has been superb, first dismissing Sri Lanka for just over 100 runs and then restricting Bangladesh to 127 in 20 overs last time out. Mujeeb Ur Rahman was brilliant against the Tigers, taking 3-16 in four overs.

Chasing 127 to win, Afghanistan cruised to a seven wicket win. Ibrahim Zadran scored 42* while Najibullah Zadran smashed 43 off just 17 balls to win with nine balls to spare.

Afghanistan Team News


Afghanistan are in fine form with two wins from two. They are likely to stick with the winning combination.
