Afghanistan and Sri Lanka have played only three one-day internationals against each other with the latter leading the scoreline 2-1.
Afghanistan defeated Sri Lanka by 91 runs when these two countries last faced each other in the game’s fifty-over format – in last year’s Asia Cup in September at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Afghanistan, after electing to bat first, posted 249 on the scoreboard and then bowled Sri Lanka out for 158 in the 42nd over.
