In the opening match of the Asia Cup 2022, Afghanistan defeated Sri Lanka by eight wickets after a fantastic all-around performance. By reducing Sri Lanka to 5 for 3, the bowlers laid the groundwork for the victory. Fazalhaq Farooqi was largely to blame for the carnage.
A 44-run partnership between Danushka Gunathilaka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa gave Sri Lanka a temporary middle-order boost, but Afghanistan quickly fought back by tearing through the lower order.
The wickets taken by Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rehman, and Mohammad Nabi were all crucial, and despite Chamika Karunaratne’s valiant late resistance, Sri Lanka’s total of 105 was woefully insufficient. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Hazratullah Zazai scored 83 runs in the Powerplay alone to put the game away in just 10.1 overs for the Afghan openers.
Afghanistan 106 for 2 (Gurbaz 40*, Zazai 37, Hasaranga 1-19) beat Sri Lanka 105 all out (Rajapaksa 38, Farooqi 3-11, Nabi 2-14) by 8 wickets
