    SL vs AFG Dream11 Prediction: A cracker of a game to start the Asia Cup tournament. Both the teams have a pretty good bowling attack but their batting is not their strength. Afghanistan are coming after a series loss to Ireland in Ireland although the circumstances are entirely different in this scenario. This is a good chance for Sri Lanka to assess themselves. They played really well against a full strength Australia in their previous series.
