Sri Lanka will take on Afghanistan in the first ODI of the three-match series at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. The match is scheduled to be played on November 25. Ahead of the kickoff, I have assorted three of the best money making betting tips for you from the SL vs AFG head-to-head contest.
The T20I World cup is over! And the teams have started preparing for the ODI World Cup scheduled for next year. Sri Lanka played a three-match series against Zimbabwe in Jan, followed by a five-match series against Australia in June. They won both series by 2-1 & 3-2, respectively. But Sri Lanka have not yet found themselves in the direct qualification list of the ICC World Cup 2023. Afghanistan are having a dream run in the ODIs this year. Out of 9 ODIs, they have won 7. They are in contention to directly qualify for the ICC World Cup and are in 7th place with 100 points in the points table. Here, I have collected the best betting tip from the SL vs AFG match prediction. Let us take a better look at them.
Have a look as I have picked Kusal Mendis to score high in the SL vs AFG match prediction.
Blessed with a compact technique, an aggressive impulse, and an iron resolve, Kusal Mendis rose rapidly through the age-group system, and quickly became one of the most promising young batsmen in the world. He made his ODI debut in 2016 and has played 85 ODIs since then. He managed to score 2546 runs in those innings with an average of 31.82. He managed to muster 2 centuries and 19 fifties in his innings. This should already encourage you to pick this hot betting tip. Mendis has only played 2 games vs Afghanistan till date and scored a total of 2 runs in those games. He has played the majority of his career games in Sri Lanka where he averages at 31.80 in the country. He was having a hard time batting in 2021 where he averaged 20.33 in the year. But he worked upon his craft to raise it to 53.00 in 2022. He amassed 318 runs in 8 games in 2022. He had a terrific campaign in SL’s last ODI series against Australia. He posted the scores of 86*, 36, 87*, 14 and 26 runs in those five games. This should encourage you to pick this hot betting tip from the SL vs AFG head-to-head match. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.832 for Kusal Mendis to score over 27.5 runs in the SL vs AFG head-to-head encounter. You should pick this betting tip for a favourable return.
I have picked two of the best money making betting tips from the SL vs AFG match prediction.
Afghanistan faced Sri Lanka when they contested together for the ICC Men’s World Cup in 2019. Afghanistan posted 34 runs for the first wicket then with Md Shahzad and H Zazai opening for the team. They had a lot of games to play in the 20 over format including in the T20 World Cup. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran opened for the team over the last few months in the format. They played against Bangladesh in February and posted the scores of 11, 9 and 79 runs before facing their 1st dismissal. They played a series against West Indies after that and scored 21, 17 and 7 runs before losing their 1st wicket. Out of their last six ODIs, they managed to score under our target on five occasions. The opening duo average pretty well in their ODI career but did not seem to have an impact in opening for the team. Having said that, I suggest you to pick this betting tip from the SL vs AFG match prediction. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.91 for Afghanistan to score under 25.5 runs before 1st dismissal and you should pick it for a hefty payday.
Playing in Sri Lanka should bag them a bundle of boundaries in the upcoming series against Afghanistan. Sri Lanka has a line-up of prolific batters in the team. They played their last ODI series against Australia before coming into this series. With a combined effort of the batters, Sri Lanka posted 33, 17, 28, 23 and 17 fours in five matches. Considering the wide boundaries in Australian grounds, SL managed to smash a good number of boundaries in the series. Kusal Mendis bagged the maximum boundaries, 22, accompanied by P Nissanka who also smashed 22 fours in those five innings. This determines the quality of hard hitters packed inside the squad and is certainly expected to shine against the Afghani bowling attack. The last time SL played against AFG in 2019, they scored 15 boundaries in the game after it was reduced to 41 overs. Considering the venue, Sri Lanka should be able to muster a lot of boundaries, certainly over 24.5 in the upcoming SL vs AFG head-to-head encounter. To capitalise on this betting tip, pick the odds of 1.95 offered by 1XBET.
