Sri Lanka lost the first game but returned with a win in the second ODI of the series. But one thing remained constant where Sri Lankan batters presented a strong batting front. Sri Lanka raised high scores in both the games and posted 27 & 32 fours in the two ODIs. SL managed to score over our target on both occasions, making it a safe betting tip from the SL vs AFG match prediction.

Afghanistan have done incredible in the international cricket circuit and are ranked in the top 10 ICC ODI rankings. However, Sri Lanka has produced fierce young bowlers who have delivered well in the series so far. Kasun Rajitha, Dushmantha Chameera and Maheesh Theekshana lead the pace attack in the powerplay over and possess economy rates of 5.00, 2.57 & 4.88 in the ongoing series. As a result, Afghanistan could only manage 45 and 33 runs in the first 10 overs of the two ODIs. This falls right under our radar, making it a safe betting tip from the SL vs AFG head-to-head encounter. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi lead the batting order and with the exception of Gurbaz, the three batters have scored well in the series. However, their strike rate fell below 88 in the competition. This weighs in favour of our betting in addition to the economical bowling line-up of Sri Lanka. The sides collided twice last year in the format where AFG scored 60 & 42 runs in the powerplay. Having said that, you should pick this lucrative betting tip from the SL vs AFG match prediction to win a heavy bonus. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.85 for Afghanistan to score under 49.5 runs in the first 10 overs.
