Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan
Sri Lanka🇱🇰 vs Afghanistan🇦🇫,
Dubai International Cricket Stadium,
Dubai, 7:30 PM
Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will go head to head in the opener of the Asia cup 2022 on Saturday, August 27 at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. They are joined by Bangladesh to shape Group A.
While, Group B comprises of most despised rivals India, Pakistan, and Hong Kong who as of late beat UAE to meet all requirements for the marquee occasion.
The Dasun Shanaka-drove Sri Lanka group enter the competition without their star quick bowler Dushmantha Chameera who is sidelined because of injury. Beside such a mishap, the island-country has a reasonable group for certain top players, similar to opener Pathum Nissanka, force to be reckoned with Bhanuka Rajapaksa, star spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, and youth Maheesha Theekshana.
Be that as it may, Sri Lanka should be careful of their rivals who present a consistent danger. Afghanistan, under the captaincy of Mohammad Nabi, will play their notable 100th T20 International, and they will plan to make it more important by securing a triumph.
