Both Afghanistan and Sri Lanka team played one and one match in ICC under 19 world cup 2016. Afghan team loss one and Sri Lanka win first match. Afghanistan Under 19 is good team and they perform very well in international cricket. Sri Lankans are currently in great form after whitewashing Pakistan 3-0 and falling behind only to India in the Tri-Nation Under-19s Tournament lately. While early predictions are in favor of Sri Lanka and Pakistan, it would remain vital for Sri Lanka to keep an eye on the other opponents to lead the group before the knockouts. Regardless of how the top order performed in the recent past, the middle order spearheaded by the captain Charith Asalanka remains quite solid in terms of putting up a good score on the board. Shammu Ashan has certainly impressed everyone with his all-round performance. His consistency has been tremendous throughout the last few months for Sri Lanka.
Under 19 World Cup 2016: Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka Match Prediction Guide
Sri Lanka won toss ball first and Afghanistan win the match.
Unlike most teams, Sri Lanka U19 works as a unit as far as the bowling department is concerned. When comparing individual performances with team efforts, the significance of the Sri Lankan bowling department lie in the fact that the balance is pretty much towards team work. Lately, instead of one brilliant bowling performance from a specific individual, we’ve been able to witness all bowlers performing equally and effectively. However, the all-rounders in the team certainly remain key ahead of the first One-Day International.
The Afghan U-19s have set sight on the title despite playing a tough group alongside Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Canada in the preliminary round of U-19 cricket world Cup. Afghanistan prepared for this tournament with a tri-series in Kolkata, against India and Bangladesh, in which they lost all four matches. However, they then beat Zimbabwe 4-0 at their adopted home in India, in Greater Noida. In their two warm-ups in Bangladesh thereafter, Afghanistan had mixed results – they eased past fellow Associates Ireland by 126 runs, but then lost by a narrow 13-run margin to New Zealand, their batsmen failing to chase down 213. Afghanistan boast a solid side. Ihsanullah scored a fine 125-ball 133 in the game against Ireland, and in the match before that against Zimbabwe in India, he had a half-century, which marked a return to form after a poor run. There is also the considerable threat of Zahir Khan, the chinaman bowler, who returned 5 for 30 against New Zealand, and will hope to get some purchase off pitches known to be favourable to spinners after the early periods. Rashid Khan, the legbreak bowler who has already made his international debut for the senior side, will also pose a significant threat.
