Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan Prediction – 1st T20I

Another electrifying clash between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will take place in the 1st T20I of the 3-match series, set to unfold in Dambulla. As the curtains draw on a riveting tour, Sri Lanka stands tall, having asserted dominance in every match of the series, claiming victories in the one-off Test and the preceding 3 ODIs.

However, as the format shifts to the shortest version of the game, the momentum becomes elusive, offering Afghanistan an opportunity to turn the tide.

Both teams enter this contest with intriguing T20I records in their recent outings. Sri Lanka, with 2 victories and 3 losses in their last 5 encounters, seeks to consolidate their form and clinch the series opener. Meanwhile, Afghanistan, with a single win, 3 losses, and a tie eventually decided in a Super Over against India will aim to defy the odds and make a resounding statement.

We believe Afghanistan's bowling will win them the game by taking crucial wickets at the start.

The betting tip is...

Sri Lanka to score under 41.5 in the powerplay.

Sri Lanka Team News

In response to Dushmantha Chameera's unfortunate quadriceps injury, left-arm pacer Binura Fernando is poised to step into the squad, bolstering Sri Lanka's pace attack. The mantle of leadership rests upon the capable shoulders of Wanindu Hasaranga, who will command the team as captain, ably supported by his deputy, Charith Asalanka. 

The squad boasts a formidable lineup, featuring the likes of Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva, stalwarts who bring invaluable experience to the fore and are captains of the ODI and Test teams respectively. 

Adding to the depth are former captains Dasun Shanaka and Angelo Mathews, offering a wealth of leadership acumen and tactical prowess. With a balanced bowling attack comprising a seam quartet and five spin-bowling options, including the versatile Kamindu Mendis, Sri Lanka exudes confidence in their bowling arsenal.

Afghanistan Team News

As Afghanistan grapples with the absence of key players, notably Rashid Khan recovering from back surgery and Mujeeb Ur Rahman facing a setback, the team looks to regroup under stand-in skipper Ibrahim Zadran for the T20I series. 

Veteran all-rounder Nabi, in sublime form, assumes pivotal importance after ascending to the summit as the No. 1 ODI all-rounder. The spotlight also falls on rising talents Noor Ahmad and Azmatullah Omarzai, whose bowling prowess aligns seamlessly with the demands of T20 cricket. 

Spearheading the pace attack, Fazalhaq Farooqi and Naveen-ul-Haq carry the responsibility of providing crucial breakthroughs. 

Despite the challenges and form, Afghanistan remains a formidable force in T20 cricket given their game style and players who have shown their skills in the global T20 stage across the globe.

Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan Betting Tips

Sri Lanka holds a slight advantage in the last 5 meetings with 3 victories compared to Afghanistan's 2.

Kusal Mendis emerges as a key figure for Sri Lanka, boasting a tally of 265 runs at an average of 29.44 and a striking rate of 147.22. His ability to anchor the innings and accelerate when needed could prove crucial in shaping Sri Lanka's total. Meanwhile, Wanindu Hasaranga's prowess with the ball cannot be understated, having claimed 12 wickets in 9 matches at an economy rate of 7.85.

We predict Afghanistan to win the 1st T20I of the series.

We believe Afghanistan's bowling will win them the game by taking crucial wickets at the start.

Sri Lanka to score under 41.5 in the powerplay.
