AFG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Venue and Pitch Report

The track in Lahore in the previous game was ideal for the batters, with the ball coming nicely on the bat. The spinners might come in the game as well if the game is played on the same surface again. However, the pitch is likely to assist the batters more than the bowlers. Another high-scoring game can not be ruled out.

Weather Report

A temperature of around 36°C with a sunny afternoon is forecasted.

AFG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Probable Playing XIs

Afghanistan: Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Nabi, Karim Janat, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi.

AFG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Top Captaincy Picks

Ibrahim Zadran: Ibrahim Zadran has a fantastic record against Sri Lanka and will look to extend it. Zadran scored 75 runs in the last game and looked in good nick. Expect a good outing for him.

Dhananjaya de Silva: Dhananjaya de Silva is among the popular choices for the captaincy in this game. He will contribute with both bat and ball and is likely to fetch the most points in the fantasy team. Dhananjaya is a safe option.

Rashid Khan: Rashid Khan didn’t have a good outing last time and will be eager to bounce back. He can also fetch points with the willow.

AFG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Top Differential Picks

Hashmatullah Shahidi: Hashmatullah Shahidi has surprisingly been picked up by less than 19% of users as of now, making him a good differential pick for this game. He played a good knock of 51 runs in the previous match. The track is expected to be good for the batters, and Shahidi can make full use of it.

Dunith Wellalage: Dunith Wellalage is a quality player who can contribute with both bat and ball. Wellalage can trouble the batters with his useful bowling and is also more than a handy batter.

AFG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Players to Avoid

Karim Janat: Karim Janat will bat in the lower order, and his bowling hasn’t been good in this format. He can be avoided for this game.
