Afghanistan for once in this world cup can be termed as favorites in this world cup clash with Sri Lanka. Such is the form of Sri Lankan cricket team in last few years in ODI cricket, terming them favorites in any clash is a bit too much it seems. And when Afghanistan takes on Sri Lanka on 4th May in what is the second match of both teams in this world cup, they will fancy their chances of notching up their first world cup 2019 win.
Sri Lanka on the other hand will be hoping that their bowling can bail them out and help them win their first match of this world cup campaign. Batting wise both teams are on shaky grounds and hence whoever bowls better will win this match.
Sri Lanka has Mailnga to look towards for leading their bowling attack whereas Afghanistan has Rashid Khan as their bowling attack leader. Whoever performs better with the bowl will help their team win. We hope it would be a competitive match even though rains are forecast for the better part of the match hours so both teams would be keeping fingers crossed in a hope to not share one point each from this match as there are no reserve days for group matches in this World Cup.
