Captain Kusal Mendis will take charge of the Sri Lankan side, showcasing his impressive captaincy skills and recent batting form. Additionally, Mendis will handle the wicketkeeping duties, sharing the responsibility with Sadeera Samarawickrama.

The return of opener Pathum Nissanka adds a lot of value to the squad, with the young talent highly regarded since his international debut in 2021. Nissanka, alongside Avishka Fernando and Shevon Daniel, is poised to provide stability and firepower at the top of the order. Dasun Shanka is not a part of the squad.

Afghanistan Team News

Afghanistan will face the challenge of missing the services of their star player Rashid Khan. Despite this setback, the team is led by Captain Hashmatullah Shahidi, with Rahmat Shah serving as vice-captain. The top order will be anchored by the likes of Shahidi, Rahmat Shah, and wicketkeeper Rahmanullah Gurbaz, providing stability and firepower.

Former captain Gulbadin Naib, known for his all-round skills, will be a key asset for Afghanistan, alongside the experienced Mohammad Nabi, who brings a wealth of international experience to the team.

The bowling attack will be spearheaded by the trio of Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Noor Ahmad, and Fazalhaq Farooqi. These bowlers have honed their skills and gained valuable international exposure in recent years, making them formidable threats capable of dismantling any batting order.
