SL vs AFG Betting Tips & Match Prediction:

Who will win the toss? – Afghanistan

Who will win? – Sri Lanka

SL vs AFG Preview:

Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka has demonstrated superiority over Afghanistan in the first two games of the series, securing two ODI series victories this year. For Sri Lanka not to win the final game of the series, there would need to be a significant turnaround in form from both teams.

Afghanistan: Afghanistan was thoroughly outplayed on Sunday, with their innings lasting less than 34 overs. While in the opening game, it was their top order that struggled, this time it was the middle-order that failed to contribute. It would indeed be a considerable surprise if Afghanistan managed to secure a victory to end the series.

Sri Lanka: Kusal Mendis (C & WK), Pathum Nissanka, Avishka Fernando, Charith Asalanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Janith Liyanage, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Dunith Wellalage, Maheesh Theekshana, Dilshan Madushanka.
