The Afghan openers emerge. They’ll try to attack the powerplay and have a strong start once more. Kasun Rajitha will go first. Two slips are present.
Dasun Shanaka: Today, we too would have gotten to bat first. We can only hope for more debuts like the second ODI. Although there is pressure, the goal is to win this match and increase your point total for the World Championships standings. Dunith Wellalage and Asitha Fernando are the two changes for today.

Pitch Report: This is a new pitch and it appears much more dry and cracked. However, there is a good amount of grass covering, so 100 overs should be no problem. The new ball will be the simplest to bat because of how dry the surface is, and 260 might be a respectable total if you bat first. Later on, when the spinners turn on, things will become more challenging.
