AFG vs SL Live Score T20 World Cup 2022 Live Streaming, Live Telecast- Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka Live Score: ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The 32nd match of the ongoing T20 World Cup will see Afghanistan take on Sri Lanka at the Gabba in Brisbane on Tuesday. The match will start at 9.30 AM IST.
After registering a comfortable win over Ireland in their first game, Sri Lanka lost their way, being hammered by Australia and New Zealand in the next two encounters. Those two crushing defeats have dented their confidence and the chance of making it into the Semi-Finals.
The Lankan bowlers did give a fight, but the batters let them down against both Australia and New Zealand. Sri Lanka was poor in the field dropping Glenn Phillips multiple times which proved costly in their previous match. The island nation would want Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, and Lahiru Kumara to continue delivering the goods and some of their senior players like Hasaranga, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dasun Shanka to stand up and lead from the front.
There is not much to talk about Afghanistan as two of their three games have been abandoned due to rain. In the first game, they did give England a run for their money, taking the match to the 19th over while defending a low total of 112. However, their batting needs some fine-tuning. Ibrahim Zadran and Usman Ghani showed some resistance, without getting much support from the other players. So, experienced campaigners like Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi must step up in this do-or-die encounter for them.
AFG v SL: Head-to-Head

AFG v SL: Pitch Report
The surface at the Gabba historically gets better as the match progresses. The team bowling first will definitely get an edge in the contest as the new ball does move around a bit in the early part of the innings. The batters need to get their eye in before going for the attacking shots. Spinners will play a crucial role in the middle overs. The team winning the toss would want to bowl first at this venue as it might get slightly easier to bat on in the second innings.
