Afghanistan put on a commendable batting performance to beat Sri Lanka in the opening ODI of their three-match series. Following that dominant 6-wicket win, Afghanistan will now aim to bag the series by winning the second match. The second ODI between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will be played at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota on June 4. Sri Lanka will need to show more composure to keep their hope alive in the home series. Their bowling appeared to be out of form in the first game which resulted in the disappointment.
Batting first, Sri Lanka could post 268 runs, losing all of their wickets in 50 overs. Charith Asalanka and Dhananjaya de Silva were the standout batters for the hosts. Asalanka scored 91 runs off 95 balls, de Silva smashed a crucial half-century. Coming to chase, Afghanistan lost their star opener Rahamanullah Gurbaj early. But a collective effort from Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmat Shah pulled them out of the situation. In the end, some important cameos from skipper Hasmatullah Shahidi and Mohammad Nabi helped Afghanistan chase down the required total.
