Who will win Today’s match between SL Vs AFG?
Due to a calf injury, talismanic bowler Chameera will not be available for Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup. Asitha Fernando, Chamika Karunaratne, and Dasun Shanaka are the only skilled fast bowlers left for Sri Lanka. The spin department, however, is well served for the Lankan side, thanks to Maheesh Theekshana, Hasaranaga, and Dhananjaya de Silva. However, it will be interesting to see how Sri Lankan batters will performs against a strong spin bowling Afghanistan unit.
The Mohammad Nabi-led side despite playing decent cricket faced defeat in Ireland, although they will look to cut all the errors and would be hoping the batting and bowling fires collectively when they face Sri Lanka on Saturday. As far as the winner of the first match of Asia Cup 2022 is concerned then we can say Sri Lanka have some edge over Afghanistan.
SL Vs AFG Today Dream Prediction:
From Afghanistan the players to watch for in the 1st match of Asia Cup 2022 would be Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka and Danushka Gunathilaka as batters. Bhanuka Rajapaksa as wicket-keeper. Wanindu Hasaranga as all-rounder and Chamika Karunaratne as bowler.
