Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan Asia Cup Highlights – 27 Aug 2022

Nabi says “fresh pitch, no cricket in Dubai for a while so we are taking a chance. In the middle, we have allrounders as well.” As for Shanaka, he says Sri Lanka “would’ve bowled first as well. Two new pacers Pathirana and Dilshan Madushanka will make their debuts.”

Rashid Khan: “Amazing journey as a team (100th T20I for the country). A great achievement for us. It is a format we are famous in. We have done well in the past few years and the guys have developed their approach and mindset in the format. (Areas ahead of the WC that need working on) There are some areas we are struggling in for a few years – specifically batting. The more we play against better teams, the better we will get. Asia Cup provides that opportunity and allows us to learn from our mistakes.”
