Super Four Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan

Super Four Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan: The Super Four stage of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 kicks off on September 3, with Sri Lanka taking on Afghanistan in the first match. The Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah will host this exciting contest.

Sri Lanka qualified for the super fours on the back of a nervy win over Bangladesh in their last group game. They lost to Afghanistan in their first game but bounced back to beat Bangladesh in their next game to stay alive in the competition. They have found the momentum at the right time and will look to carry forward the winning momentum in their next game against the Afghan side.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, have looked brilliant in the Asia Cup 2022. They have played two games and won both comprehensively. The Afghan side topped the group B and sealed a berth in the super four stage. They have been going strong in the competition and will be eager to keep performing in a similar fashion in the final stages of the tournament.
