Asia Cup T20 Match Prediction & Tips 

Time: 27 Aug, 07:30 PM (IST)
Series: Asia Cup T20I Match 1
Venue: Dubai Intl. Cricket Stadium, Dubai

SL vs AFG Dream11 Prediction:

  • Pathum Nissanka has been in excellent form for Sri Lanka over the last 18 months and he is our tip for their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga has format best figures of 4-9 and the spinner is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against Afghanistan.
  • Hazratullah Zazai has a strike-rate of 144.50 in this format with a top score of 162 not out. He is our pick for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer against Sri Lanka. Rashid Khan is one of the most feared spin bowlers in T20 cricket and he is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • We recommend Wanindu Hasaranga to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

Pitch Report:
This is an excellent batting track in Dubai with the pitch offering pace and bounce. However, we do expect the likes of Rashid Khan to still get assistance from this wicket.

Toss Prediction:
Chasing a total is the preferred method for both of these sides and we expect the captains to elect to field first in this match.

Wanindu Hasaranga

The bowling all-rounder has taken 100 international wickets and is a constant threat across all formats but is particularly dangerous in IT20s.
