Match Preview:

Afghanistan and Sri Lanka will go head to head in an entertaining mid-table encounter at the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Entering this game, both teams have registered some massive triumphs. The Lankans took down defending champions England in Bengaluru. Whereas, Afghanistan defeated 1992 World Cup winners Pakistan in Chennai. 

Pitch Report:

The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune has produced great tracks with an average score of 307 runs. The batters have scored a lot of runs, thanks to the ground’s short dimensions and a true bounce off the track. At the same time, fast bowlers can come into play early in both innings with a new ball while spinners generally find it difficult.

The Hashmatullah Shahidi-led Afghanistan have pulled off some massive results in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. So far in the tournament, Afghanistan’s bowling has been their biggest strength with the spin quartet being in incredible form. Similarly, their batting has gradually improved through the tournament with Rahmanullah Gurbaz emerging as the pick of the batters.
