Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will meet in the first match of the upcoming 15th edition of the Asia Cup which kicks off in Dubai from tomorrow. Only the second T20I between these two teams, they will meet after more than six years.
Afghanistan might have ended up on the losing side in their first T20I against Sri Lanka, but they have played more and better cricket than the Sri Lankans at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
In nine T20Is here, Afghanistan won six and lost three to have an impressive host record. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka won one and lost two of their three Dubai T20Is.
As far as recent form is concerned, Sri Lanka will enter this intercontinental tournament after four defeats in their last five matches. Afghanistan, on the other hand, fares better in this regard and has won three of its last five T20Is.
