Both Afghanistan and Sri Lanka have exceeded expectations in the tournament, creating several upsets to remain in the race for a top-four spot.

As a result, Fazalhaq Faarooqi replaced Noor Ahmed in the team. Sri Lanka made two changes in their playing XI, with Dushmantha Chameera replacing the injured Lahiru Kumara, and Dimuth Karunaratne coming in for Kusal Perera.

Sri Lanka is currently on a two-match winning streak and occupies the fifth position in the points table with four points. Afghanistan is positioned in seventh place with a negative net run rate.

Milestone for Rashid Khan

For Rashid Khan, it is a special day as he marks his 100th ODI appearance. Rashid made his debut in the 50-over format in 2015 and quickly established himself as a key player in the team. He now joins an elite list of Afghan cricketers with over 100 ODIs, which includes Rahmat Shah (103), Mohammad Nabi (153), and Asghar Afghan (114).

Rashid Khan’s record in ODI

Among Afghan bowlers, Rashid holds the record for the most ODI wickets, with 178 to his name. This milestone places him close to legendary Australian cricketer Brett Lee, who has 179 ODI wickets.
