Stumps and bails analysis for the pick of Top Performers between Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.
ABOUT THE MATCH
Every single match has been one-sided, but it is still early in the tournament and we have some hope from the upcoming matches.
As we can see that both the teams suffered heavy defeats in their opening match of the cricket world cup but it was Afghanistan that showed more fight before going down. We have no doubt that Afghanistan is going to be targeting a victory in this match as will Sri Lanka.
Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, on the 4th of June 2019.
The team winning the toss is almost certainly going to want to bowl first. Overcast conditions will provide movement to the fast bowlers first up while any DLS adjustments also help the side batting second more.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. The weather forecast is not good at all for Cardiff on match day and plenty of rain is expected. We really hope that the rain gods are kind and provide enough respite to allow a match to be played out but it looks like we are going to struggle to get any cricket at all.
The pitch in Cardiff is a bit green and is going to provide movement when the conditions are overcast. A score of around 300 may be a good one if we do get the full 50 overs in.
Batting was always going to be the biggest concern for Afghanistan in World Cup 2019 and that is exactly what caused their loss in the first match.
Against Sri Lanka, the Afghan batsmen are going to be up against one of the weakest bowling sides in the cricket world cup.
This is Afghanistan’s best chance to win a match in the ICC World Cup 2019 and they will be aware of this. Hopefully, it should not cause them to veer away from their natural game if they play with good consistency.

No one has given Sri Lanka a chance coming into the cricket world cup 2019 and it seems to be a fair assessment. It is going to be difficult for Sri Lanka, but they must somehow find a way to win this match.
If Sri Lanka loses this match to Afghanistan, then we can honestly see them going through the entire tournament without getting a single win to their name.
Sri Lanka has won just one out of its last fifteen matches, but we still believe the Sri Lankan batting is not that bad. Sri Lanka also has a number of talented batsmen that just need to hit the right form to be a threat in the world cup.
The bowling for Sri Lanka is a big problem. They don’t have the pace bowlers to really trouble the batsmen but can utilize any swing that might be present.
