What are the Top Picks, players for Dream11, My11circle and MPL for SL vs AFG, 1st ODI?
Top Pick – Batter
Pathum Nissanka is doing an extraordinary job at the top of the order for Sri Lanka in white-ball cricket. In 8 ODIs this year, he has scored 368 runs at an average of 46 which includes one century.
Top Pick – All-Rounder
Wanindu Hasaranga is an energetic man on the field. The batters still facing issues picking his variations. He has played only 2 ODIs this year, picking up 5 wickets and scoring 58 runs with the bat.
Top Pick – Bowler
Rashid Khan always bowls with a lot of intensity irrespective of the format he is playing. He is the leading wicket-taker for Afghanistan this year. In 9 matches, he has bagged 18 wickets with the best figures of 3 for 31 and added 106 runs with the bat.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
Kusal Mendis has the ability to build innings and can play long innings as well. He hasn’t done badly with the bat this year. In 8 matches, he has collected 318 runs at an average of 53 with the best score of 87*.
Rahmat Shah has scored the most runs for Afghanistan in ODIs this year. In 9 matches, he has notched 484 runs at an average of 53.77.
What are the fantasy suggested teams for SL vs AFG, 1st ODI?
1. Kusal Mendis, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rahmat Shah (vc), Hashmatullah Shahidi, Pathum Nissanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga (c), Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Maheesh Theekshana
2. Kusal Mendis (c), Dasun Shanaka, Najibullah Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Ibrahim Zadran, Pathum Nissanka, Mohammad Nabi (vc), Wanindu Hasaranga, Rashid Khan, Lahiru Kumara, Fazalhaq Farooqi
Sri Lanka are going to miss their key players Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, and Danushka Gunathilaka which opens the door for the other players to grab the opportunity. Island nation last played their ODI series back in June earlier this year against Australia and comfortably won 3-2 margin. It’s an important series for them considering the economic crisis going on in the country and win here will definitely boost the spirits of the people. It’s an initial foundation for their preparation for the 50-over World Cup which is not far away.
Afghanistan on the other hand, won their previous bilateral series against Zimbabwe by a 3-0 margin. Loads of responsibilities are on the shoulders of Hashmatullah Shahidi who will continue to lead the side in this series. Spin twins Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman are the major attraction on the side. Left arm quicks Fareed Ahmad and Fazalhaq Farooqi are likely to share the new ball. They have faced Sri Lanka 4 times in the past and came out on top on only on one occasion back in 2018. They are ready to make a statement against the vulnerable Sri Lankan side.
