ICC World Cup 2019::Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan :Pre Match Analysis and playing XI


It is a day of finding the winning momentum here at Cardiff as Sri Lanka take on Afghanistan.Both teams played very badly in the first match they played and both are starving for a win in the World Cup.

Although Sri Lankan batting line up has got some depth on the paper,their performance against New Zealand completely destroyed every expectation of Sri Lankan fans who had a belief on them.

On other side Afghanistan was poor too in both departments and surely must be desperate to get a win and make their country proud.

Going into the day weather forecast do not look good at all and definetly some interruptions are expected during the match.

Pitch is expected to have some help for the pace bowlers and we are expecting a low scoring game here as the average 1 st inning score here is low as 224.

Anyone batting first must look for a score around 270 here and as we think it will be enough for a good game.

Expected playing XI for both teams are as follows:

SRI LANKA

1.Dimuth Karunaratne (c)
2.Lahiru Thirimanne
3.Kusal Perera (wk)
4.Kusal Mendis
5.Dhananjaya de Silva
6.Angelo Matthews
7.Jeevan Mendis
8.Thisara Perera
9.Isuru Udana
10.Suranga Lakmal
11.Lasith Malinga

AFGHANISTAN

1.Mohammad Shahzad (wk)
2.Hazrat Zazai
3.Rahmat Shah
4.Hashmatullah Shahid
5.Mohammad Nabi
6.Gulbadin Naib (c)
7.Najibullah Zadran
8.Rashid Khan
9.Dawlat Zadran
10.Mujeeb Ur Rahman
