Top Picks – Batters
When playing against Bangladesh, Ibrahim Zadran scored 42 runs off of 41 balls, assisting Afghanistan in winning the match. Together with Najibullah Zadran, he scored 69 runs for the fourth wicket in that match.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Most recently, Wanindu Hasaranga has been Sri Lanka’s most effective bowler. Although he was a little pricey in the last game, he did take two crucial wickets. He will be expected to put on another outstanding effort for Sri Lanka in this game.
In the previous game, Chamika Karunaratne was crucial for Sri Lanka with both the bat and the ball. In 4 overs, he took 2 wickets for 32 runs and scored 16 runs off just 10 pitches. The all-rounder scored 31 runs off of 38 deliveries and smashed 3 fours and 1 six against Afghanistan in the most recent match.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Rashid Khan demonstrated in the last game for what he regarded as one of the greatest in the shortest game after failing to pick up a wicket in the first game. He only allowed 22 runs to be scored in 4 overs while taking 3 wickets. In the course of his spell, he only gave up one four.
Due to his outstanding bowling performance in the previous game, Mujeeb Ur Rahman was named Player of the Match. In 4 overs, he took 3 wickets for just 16 runs. His three wickets were all taken during the powerplay innings.
The last time Afghanistan faced Sri Lanka, Fazalhaq Farooqi was named Player of the Match. Farooqi took 3 wickets in 3.4 overs during that match, including one in his first over of bowling. He will probably again put Sri Lanka’s top order to the test in this match.
Maheesh Theekshana was Sri Lanka’s most effective bowler against Bangladesh in the most recent match. He only conceded 23 runs in 4 overs while picking off Shakib Al Hasan.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Rahmanullah Gurbaz led Afghanistan to an 8-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the first game with a ferocious effort of 40 runs off just 18 deliveries. He will face the same opponent in this game, thus it will assumed that he will perform similarly.
In the final game, wicketkeeper-batsman Kusal Mendis produced a game-winning innings and also named Player of the Match. He started Sri Lanka’s innings, and despite having a big 184-run target to meet, he managed to score 60 runs off just 37 deliveries.
