Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan Live
Sri Lanka have some really good batsmen of this format Dilshan is one of the most experienced player of this format who has played all world cups and along with him Chandimal has also played some really good Innings in the Asia cup. Their biggest concern is injured Malinga and out of form Angelo Mathews who both are very meaningful for them and if they both played and got their form back Sri Lanka will surely be a very dangerous side and underestimating them will be a big mistake.
Coming toward the Afghan side who is playing some really classical cricket from few weeks and now they have qualified for the main round. The secret behind their success is the aggressive cricket against associate nations and now it’s time to face the Big boys and this team have ability to upset any top team in the world. Muhammad Shehzad and Muhammad Nabi are key for them. Their bowlers have also bowled at right lengths and now the captain Asghar Stankazai have really used his bowlers quite intelligently. All they need to do is just to release the pressure as much as they could and they surely can give a tough time to Sri Lankan side who is not in a really good form these days. So saying that Sri Lanka can win it easily will be a great mistake surely.
Pitch at the Eden Gardens Kolkata will be a batting friendly wicket for sure. So any team who wins the toss surely go for the bat and put pressure on the opposition.
