Sri Lanka v Afghanistan – 7th Match – World Cup 19 – Highlights

Lasit Malinga saviour of the Match as Sri Lanka fight back

Afghanistan, bidding for just their second win in a World Cup match and their first over a test nation were in command halfway through a gloomy day in Cardiff after dismissing Sri Lanka for 201.

But faced with a rain-revised target of 187 in 41 overs, their batting let them down again as they were bowled out for 152.

Victory saw Sri Lanka bounce back from a 10-wicket thrashing by New Zealand in their World Cup opener.

It was also just their second win in 11 one-day international matches this year following a defeat of non-test nation Scotland.

But Sri Lanka’s batting remains a concern. They were set for a huge total against Afghanistan at 144 for one but lost their last nine wickets for 57 runs, with spinner Mohammad Nabi taking three in five balls.

“We had a good start but suddenly we lost a couple of wickets,” said Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne.

“That’s the negative part but otherwise bowling and fielding was a high note.”
