SL vs AFG Score Updates, Asia Cup 2022: Afghanistan eye a strong total after losing two set batters in the death overs. Rahmanulah Gurbaz hit a brilliant 84 while Ibrahim Zadran also scored a decent knock of 40. The pair had added 93 runs for the second wicket, after the Hazratullah Zazai was dismissed for cheap. Madushanka rattled Zazai’s off-stump in the penultimate ball of the fifth over, haulting Afghanistan’s strong start. Afghanistan received massive reprieve after Rahmanullah was caught in the third over, but the replay showed that the fielder’s boot was touching the boundary rope. Both teams met earlier during the Group stage and it was Afghanistan who ran riot with an eight-wicket win. Afghanistan have been the team to beat so far, after comfortably winning both of their games. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, had to stage an epic chase to knock out Bangladesh, and book their place in the Super 4. Afghanistan have a slight edge, heading into this fixture, but winning the toss would be key for either teams. (LIVE SCORECARD)
