Sri Lanka lost their first match against Afghanistan during the Asia Cup T20 tournament, but in the next match, Sri Lanka managed to win. Under these different and unpredictable ground conditions, this match is going to be hard to call. Judging by experience and talent in the team Sri Lanka has an upper hand but the Sri Lankans haven’t been in their best form in recent days. They are coming into this match after some losses during this tournament. However, since Afghanistan has also struggled during this tournament and is yet to find their first win of this tournament, Sri Lanka has a slight psychological advantage coming into this match. We predict Sri Lanka to win this one.

Preliminary review and Pre-match Prediction for Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka is ranked 8th while Afghanistan is ranked 10th as per the ICC World T20 team ratings. Sri Lanka won 3 of their 5 matches and they won the last encounter between these two teams in UAE during the T20 Asia Cup 2022. A big win in this may still blow hope for the Lankan team to have chances to still keep their World Cup dreams alive. So they will want to put their fullest effort into beating the Afghanistan team.


Afghanistan will come into this match with the mindset of having beaten Sri Lanka once recently in UAE. They will be expecting to make this their first big win in this tournament. They had a very close game against Pakistan ( Pakistan won by 1 wicket, with 4 balls remaining). This is a fact that Afghanistan would take positively as Sri Lanka is considered an easier outfit than Pakistan. So Afghanistan will be fighting hard for this win.
