Sri Lanka is all set to host Afghanistan for a three-match ODI series which is scheduled from June 2 to 7 and will be contested at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota. In this space, you can find the Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan live telecast details in India.
This series is crucial from Sri Lanka’s point of view considering the fact that there are only 4 months left for the ODI World Cup 2023. They are not going through the best of form as the Dasun Shanaka-led side were defeated 2-0 by New Zealand in a three-match ODI series in New Zealand in the month of April.
Sri Lanka also suffered losses in the two-match Test series as well as in the three-match T20I series against the Kiwis. In January 2023, the Sri Lankan team were beaten 3-0 by Team India in a three-match ODI series against a fairly young Indian squad.
On the other hand, Afghanistan has done fairly well as a unit in recent times. In March 2023, Afghanistan defeated Pakistan by 2-1 in a three-match T20I series. This was their first bilateral series victory against Pakistan.
The Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan series will also feature some young talented players. Matheesha Pathirana and Noor Ahmad have been included in the squad of their respective sides after they performed exceedingly well in the recently concluded IPL 2023.
