Updated on: Jun 5, 2023 5:37 pm IST
Sri Lanka is all set to host Afghanistan in the 2nd match of the three-match ODI series on Friday, June 4 at 10:00 AM. The match is scheduled to take place at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota.
Sri Lanka had a disappointing start to the ODI series, suffering a 6-wicket loss against Afghanistan in their first match. Despite solid contributions from Pathun Nissanka (38 off 59 balls) and important innings of 91 runs from Charith Asalanka, along with Dhananjaya de Silva’s quick half-century off 59 balls, the rest of the team failed to support them, leading to a total of 268 all out.
In the second half of the game, Kasun Rajitha impressed with figures of 2/49, while Pathirana and Lahiru Kumara managed to take one wicket each. However, their efforts were not enough to contain Afghanistan’s batting lineup, who ultimately chased down the target with 3.1 overs to spare.
The Sri Lankan army will be eager to learn from their mistakes and bounce back strongly in today’s game, aiming to level the series at 1-1. They will be focused on rectifying their shortcomings and executing their plans effectively to secure a victory and regain momentum in the series.
