In the match against Afghanistan, Bangladesh was under a lot of duress, but they managed to put pressure on their opponents by putting on a brilliant batting display. Afghanistan is now in desperate need of a herculean performance with both bat and ball to advance to the Super Four.
In this tournament’s structure, one devastating loss is all it takes to get closer to elimination. Given that Sri Lanka is in fantastic form despite losing several important bowlers, it won’t be a simple feat. To advance into the Super Four, Sri Lanka, which presently leads the group after easily defeating Bangladesh, must avoid a crushing loss in this match.
After defeating Afghanistan, Bangladesh is nearly guaranteed a spot in the Super Four. Even if Afghanistan defeats Bangladesh by a wide margin and overtakes it in terms of NRR, it will be Sri Lanka which would be in trouble since their NRR is expected to be lower than Bangladesh’s. Even though this three-way fight is quite tight, only two of the teams have a good chance of succeeding.
Even though Afghanistan won the first ODI between these two teams, Sri Lanka made a great comeback to demolish their opponents in the next two games to win the series. Particularly in the last ODI, they just outplayed their opponents with the ball, so Afghanistan would be careful.
With all these equations in line, this game is going to be vital in Group A. Down below is the AFG vs SL weather forecast and pitch report of Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore:
