AFG vs SL, 32th Match Preview
Afghanistan take on Sri Lanka in Match 21 of the 2022 T20 World Cup at the Gabba, Brisbane on Tuesday afternoon. Afghanistan has lost to England and had no results against New Zealand and Ireland without a ball being bowled. Sri Lanka has won one and lost two matches in the second round. Afghanistan fancied their chances against Ireland but saw the match washed out on Friday in Melbourne. This will be a tough game but Afghanistan will be raring to play after two successive abandonment. Sri Lanka has been very unlucky with injuries and their pace bowling attack is not up to its usual standard. However, their spin bowlers have enough talent to beat any opposition when they get it right.
