Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan is scheduled to be at Monday, 17th September 2018. The selected venue for the upcoming match is Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The match is scheduled to start at 4:30 PM PKT / 5:00 PM IST / 11:30 AM GMT / 03:30 PM LOCAL. The pitch for this match supports spinners much more than pace. The wicket is generally a bit on the slow side and while it can be a haven for batsmen,it’s not a surface where it is particularly easy to force the pace and patience is often rewarded over power. The weather will be Sunny with the temperature being high at 43-34 degree celsius. Chances of rain during the match drops as low as 0% and the wind speed remains below 23 km/h.

Afghanistan is the most hyped team and perhaps their matches are awaited the most after India vs Pakistan. No match can cross the hype for India vs Pakistan especially if you are from either of the two countries. Afghanistan has a better form than Sri Lanka. Afghanistan won 4 out of their last 5 matches and lost 1. They even defeated a team like West Indies! Sri Lanka does not have much great form. They lost 3 out of the last 5 matches they played and won 2 only. Sri Lanka recently lost a series to South Africa too.

However underestimating Sri Lanka is not quite intelligent. They lost a series but that was against South Africa, the 4th best team in ODIs. Sri Lanka may not be the team it was, it still managed to give out a tough competition to South Africa and the series end score was 3-2! Afghanistan will be more in pressure. Sri Lanka have been more recently involved in cricket with their recent match being against Bangladesh on 15th September. Their players are more in form and their big name puts Afghanistan in pressure too. Sri Lanka is also known for playing spin, the greatest weapon of Afghanistan, quite well. Therefore Sri Lanka stands more chance of victory.

Here are the Squads:

Sri Lanka:

Angelo Mathews(c), Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Upul Tharanga, Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Dilruwan Perera, Amila Aponso, Kasun Rajitha, Suranga Lakmal, Dushmantha Chameera, Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella, Shehan Jayasuriya
