SL vs AFG Head to Head Records in ODIs- 1st ODI , 2024

Sri Lanka and Afghanistan face each other in the SL vs AFG ODI series. Pallekele hosts all three ODIs and the first game will be on Friday, February 9. All matches start at 2:30 pm IST.

Sri Lanka, after beating Afghanistan in the only Test, is now gearing up for the ODI series. They will be coached by Kusal Mendis, who has his white-ball regulars available for the series. Maheesh Theekshana, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dusmantha Chameera and Dilshan Madushanka form the bowling core.

Sri Lanka, after suffering an uneven performance in the World Cup, changed its lead in all formats. Kusal Mendis was named ODI captain, Hasaranga Test captain and Dhananjaya de Silva Test captain. Sri Lanka recently played an ODI series against Zimbabwe and came close to the brink. They won the series 2-1, but Zimbabwe tested them to the limit.

This is what makes them a vulnerable team even in their native conditions. Afghanistan has played 12 ODI matches against Sri Lanka, winning four and losing seven. They have the opportunity to increase this account in this series.

Afghanistan will be led by Hasmatullah Shahidi. The white ball team has recovered all the key players. Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmaullah Gurbaz and Rahmat Shah for the batting core. Azmatullah Omarzai, Mohammad Nabi and Gulbadin Naib are the all-rounders, and Fazalhaq Farooqi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Noor Ahmad and Qais Ahmad form the bowling core. Rashid Khan is absent from the series because he is still recovering from his lower back injury.
