Sri Lanka’s Dilshan Madushanka grabbed two wickets and Kasun Rajitha one. Sri Lanka lost all their wickets at 242 in their World Cup encounter against Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s confidence will soar after their crushing win against Pakistan. The spinners, who have been key to Afghanistan’s success, were in great form again in their penultimate game, but the batsmen pulled off a shocking 283-run win with 8 wickets to spare.
Sri Lanka will be confident after a convincing win over the reigning world champions in their last encounter. The Lankan bowling attack, which has given up too many runs in previous matches, kept the English batsmen at bay in the previous cricket game courtesy of pacer Lahiru Kumara’s outstanding bowling.
