Sri Lanka currently sits in second place in the group, while Afghanistan is in third. The winner of today’s match will take a big step towards qualifying for the next stage.

Both teams have their strengths and weaknesses. Sri Lanka has a strong batting lineup, led by Kusal Mendis and Karunaratne. However, their bowling could have been more consistent. 

Afghanistan has a more balanced team, with good batsmen and bowlers.

The match is expected to be a close one. The toss will be influential, as the team that wins it will have the option of batting first and setting a target. 

The pitch is expected to be a good one for batting, so both teams should be able to score runs.

Sri Lanka vs. Afghanistan Asia Cup 2023 Captain, Vice-Captain Picks


In the previous game, Pathirana was the leading wicket-taker. With this kind of action, it is really hard to read him.

He is a complete bowler who can ball in any given condition. In the power-play, and middle overs, and he is even lethal in the death overs.

So you can expect him to pick at least a couple of wickets. He is relatively a safer option as Vice-captain.

In fact, in this Asia Cup, I will pick more all-rounders and bowlers as captains and vice-captains.

Rashid Khan

Rashid is yet to deliver his best in this Asia Cup. The match against Sri Lanka might be the perfect stage for him. 

On his day, he can single-handedly win the game for his team. 

Add his batting ability and extraordinary fielding. There are sure lots of fantasy points for the coming if it is his day.
