After a crushing loss in the Asia Cup 2018 opener against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka would want to give their all in a “must-win” situation against mercurial Afghanistan.
The five-time Asia Cup winner, Sri Lanka need their batting to fire against Afghan’s team. However, this would be tricky against quality spin-bowling of Afghanistan. Sri Lanka would draw inspiration from the fact that Afghanistan have not been able to win a single ODI game against Sri Lanka thus far.
Ashgar Afghan’s side come into the tournament after registering series wins over Zimbabwe and Ireland. For them to get better of the opposition, they have to be watchful and smart with their batting.
