Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka Preview
Team Afghanistan Preview
Afghanistan has made fast paces from the time when they featured in the 2015 World Cup for the first time but had to bear a nerve-racking qualifying contest in Zimbabwe to make the 2019 edition. The team should not to be under-rated at all as at the year 2018 in the Asia Cup tournament, they beat Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and tied contrary to ultimate champions India.
The game changer of Afghanistan might be Leg-spinner Rashid Khan who might shine out in the upcoming tournament. He is considered to be the fastest to reach 100 ODI wickets in 44 matches.
Team Sri Lanka Preview
The 1996 World Cup Championship winner has given a decent performance in the World Cup series. In the 2007 and 2011, Sri-Lanka got the runner-up position against Australia and India respectively.
But in the recent time, it is covered up with allegations and is the center of match-fixing and corruption ahead of a Test against England last year. The performance of the team is decent in the previous year.
The game changer of Sri-Lanka might be Lasith Malinga who is the best player in the bowling department. He is also the key to any chance of Sri Lanka making an influence in England and Wales.

Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka Match 7 Result: “Sri Lanka Won By 34 Runs”
Well, both the team that is Afghanistan and Sri Lanka has already made their entry in the ICC World Cup 2019 with 1-1 match each against other teams. The opening match of Afghanistan was held against Australia on 1 June 2019 in County Ground, Bristol at 6:00 PM IST, where Australia won by 7 wickets and Afghanistan just managed to score 207 runs in 38.2 overs.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka played on the same day against New Zealand on 1 June 2019 in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff at 3:00 PM IST, where New Zealand won by 10 wickets. It was a major defeat of Sri Lanka as they merely managed to score just 136 runs in 29.2 overs.
By seeing the previous matches result it is pretty clear that both the teams are not in good form as expected. Sri Lanka was a big disappointment in its previous match as it is considered to be one of the toughest team in the cricket world but the previous match was a big disappointment. Even though Sri Lanka performance was not up to the mark but we believe that in this match they will increase their pace and will give a good competition to Afghanistan and therefore might end up as the winner of the 7th match of ICC World Cup 2019 against Afghanistan.
