ABOUT THE MATCH

Afghanistan will be keen to make an impression in their tournament opener while Sri Lanka will have momentum under their belt after their match against Bangladesh. Despite the relative mismatch, expect the game to be an exciting affair.

Match Preview

Sri Lanka are obviously the more experienced of the two teams but with the likes of Rashid Khan in their team, Afghanistan will be no pushovers. The Lankans are expected to win this game but they will have to play their heart out, don’t expect the Afghans to hand it to them on a platter.

With Dinesh Chandimal missing the series due to a fracture on his finger, wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella will continue as his replacement. Akila Dananjaya will miss this match as well as he is back home for the birth of his first child.

Lanka will hope that the presence of off-spinner Dilruwan Perera and the returning Lasith Malinga will help ease the absence.

Sayed Sherzad, Munir Ahmad and Wafadar Momand have been included in the Afghanistan squad despite not having featured in ODIs before. Sherzad and Wafadar will be expected to boost the pace attack for the Afghans. Dawlat Zadran failed to make the squad but Afghanistan will be hoping that their star spinner Rashid Khan will be the difference on the turning tracks of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Pitch Conditions

 

Just like Dubai, expect a hot and humid day in Abu Dhabi with the temperature touching 38 degree Celsius. The slow turning pitch in Abu Dhabi is a haven for batsmen but it is also known to throw surprises.

Toss Prediction

 

Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

Sri Lanka should win this match against their relatively-inexperienced opponents.
