ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka at Sophia Gardens: Match Stats, Winning, Losing, Tied, Match History
Afghanistan looks to get their second ever win in the World Cup tournament as they go head on against former champion Sri Lanka at Sophia Gardens

Sri Lanka are all set to face Afghanistan in the sixth match of ICC Cricket World cup at Sophia Gardens at 3 pm on Tuesday (June 4). With both the teams coming to the match after tasting defeat in their respective openers, it will be interesting to see which team bounces back. Though former world champions Sri Lanka are the favorite, they will not discount the Afghans as minnow. Under the captaincy of Gulbadin Naib, Afghanistan will use their bowling line up to attack the Lanka. On the other hand, Dimuth Karunaratne and his men need to tighten their noose in order to beat the Dark Horses Afghanistan.
