Preview

On October 4 at the Zhejiang University of Technology Cricket Field in Hangzhou, Sri Lanka will play Afghanistan SL vs AFG in the third quarterfinal match of the Asian Games cricket. Due to their starting lineups being committed to the ODI World Cup, both nations would be using their backup teams. Both of these teams’ depth on the bench will be put to the test in this game.

In their most recent match, Sri Lanka faced up against New Zealand, who won the toss and decided to field. Sri Lanka got off to a strong start, scoring a lot of points early on. The Sri Lankan team was able to post a formidable total of 182 runs on the scoreboard because everyone in the top order scored brilliantly. Tim Seifert led the chase for New Zealand in the team’s victory in a tight match by four wickets. New Zealand’s response was much greater.

In their previous match, Bangladesh had faced off against Afghanistan and had chosen to field after winning the toss. Rain caused the game to be called off, and it was then changed to 17 overs per side. Afghanistan had a tough start but managed to score at a respectable rate throughout the innings, which allowed them to score 116 runs. Bangladesh, on the other hand, got off to a terrific start and had a strong top order, which made for a respectable chase. They had no trouble reaching the target and, using the DLS system, won the game by a margin of six wickets.
