Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka Match Prediction Tips | AFGH vs SL Who will win Today Match
Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, September 17 at 05:00 PM IST
The third match of Asia Cup will take place at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi which is the second venue for this year's Asia Cup. This would be the opening game for Afghanistan while Sri Lanka will be featuring in their second match of the competition.
The opening game saw a dreadful start to Sri Lanka's campaign as they slumped to defeat in a humiliating manner against the Bangladeshi Tigers. Mushfiqur Rahim's valiant ton helped the Tigers to post a competitive 261 on the board but Sri Lanka could not cope-up with the target as they were dismissed for a mere 124 in just 35.2 overs.
The loss meant that Sri Lanka will now have to win this encounter at any cost as one more loss here and they will be out of the competition and this do-or-die scenario might really hinder their performance in this game.
Pitch Conditions: The pitch at Abu Dhabi might improvise the spinners to do well, run making can well be easy but spinners will make the most of the conditions. The new ball might swing first up which will make this contest even between bat and ball.

AFGH vs SL Squads
Afghanistan: Asghar Afghan(c), Rahmat Shah, Mohammad Nabi, Aftab Alam, Gulbadin Naib, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Javed Ahmadi, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Shahzad, Ihsanullah Janat, Najibullah Zadran, Sayed Shirzad, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Wafadar, Samiullah Shenwari, Munir Ahmad
Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews(c), Kusal Mendis, Upul Tharanga, Kusal Perera(wk), Dilruwan Perera, Dushmantha Chameera, Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella(wk), Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Amila Aponso, Kasun Rajitha, Suranga Lakmal
Wicket-keeper: Among the wicketkeepers, Mohammad Shahzad of Afghanistan will be the right choice because, it is not sure if Niroshan Dickwella gets a go in this match then who would be the keeper of Sri lanka because both Kusal Perera and Niroshan Dickwella can keep wickets, therefore it is safe to choose Mohammad Shahzad in your fantasy XI.
Batsmen: The three batsmen which we suggest you to pick are Upul Tharanga who showed a glimpse of his show in the opening game, Rahmat Shah who is an experienced campaigner and knows how to bar in a crunch situation and the third choice would be Angelo Mathews the Sri Lankan skipper and one of the most experienced batsmen in their side.
All-rounders: The perfect choice for all-rounders should be Mohammad Nabi who bats down the order and score some quick runs and has the ability to break partnerships while bowling his off-spin.
Bowlers: The bowlers had their saying in the opening game of the tournament, therefore we would suggest you to pick Lasith Malinga who was at his fiery best after making a comeback into the national side after almost a year, and the misery bowling of Rashid Khan who is a prudent choice on any surface.
