Sri Lanka began their short T20I series against Afghanistan with a thrilling win. The game saw the home win the game by 4 runs despite the visitors fighting spirit with the bat and ball. Wanindu Hasaranga saw Matheesha Pathirana rise to the fore with the ball to help his side win. 

Sri Lanka (SL) are coming off a turbulent 2023 where they performed miserably. With the T20 World Cup just four months away, the Islanders will want to tighten up their game. Under the captaincy of Hasaranga the team has started to perform well and begun stringing in a few wins. 

Afghanistan (AFG) are severely missing Rashid Khan with the ball in hand. The all-round talent of the visitors though has seen them give a good account of themselves. Mohammad Nabi was recently crowd the world number-1 all-rounder and he has been showing the exact reason behind the rating.
