So Afghanistan make a strong statement by beating a team like Sri Lanka. Their impressive rise in international cricket is such an inspirational story. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, need to dig in deep, identify and rectify their short comings and mistakes that they are repeating. They need to find some inspiration from their past victories and achievements of their former heroes. Tomorrow, we are all set to witness India taking on Hong Kong in their first game of the tournament. India, without their captain Kohli, will be keen to perform well and prove that they are not a one-man army. Hong Kong will look to come up with a contest and give a hard time to the Asian giants. We eagerly await the exciting contest to start tomorrow at 1530 local (1130 GMT). Till then take care, good bye, stay healthy and most importantly, have fun. Until tomorrow, its adios from our side.
Man of the Match Rahmat Shah firstly thanks god. Says that the wicket was good which helped him bat well. Adds saying that he was waiting for the lose balls. Ends saying that it was an important match and he is happy to be the Man of the Match.
Asghar Afghan says that it was a very important game because Sri Lanka are a good team. Credits his batters and openers for giving them a good start. Adds saying that his players executed their plans well and gives credit to his fielders too. On the recent success he says that they are a good team and want to win every game which helps them play positive. On being asked if they can win the Asia Cup he reckons that if they bat well and set a good target, they have the spinners to defend the target. Ends by thanking the crowd for their support.
Angelo Mathews is shocked by the performance of the whole team. Stresses that they couldn't reach 150 on both occasions. Congratulates Afghanistan for outplaying them. Says that the batting let them down in both games. Is happy with the bowlers and fielders but is disappointed with the overall result. Ends saying that they repeated the same mistakes and couldn't handle pressure.
Once Sri Lanka came out to chase 250, it was evident that some good application and smart cricket was the need of the hour and that is exactly what the Lankans could not manage. Losing two matches in a row to Bangladesh and then to Afghanistan will be a big shock and it's high time for Mathews and Co. to pull-up their socks and play to their full potential.
The Sri Lankan chase started on a disastrous note as they lost their first wicket in the form of Kusal Mendis on the very second ball of their innings. That set the ball rolling for Afghanistan as they just did not allow the Sri Lankan batters to take any kind of control on the game. A 54-run second wicket partnership between Tharanga and De Silva gave us some hope of a fighting chase but the untimely run-out of Dhananjaya de Silva puled the Lankans back and they never could get going from there. The spin trio of Mujeeb, Nabi and Rashid were just too good for the Lankans today as they kept on taking wickets at regular intervals. For Sri Lanka though Malinga was a big disappointment as he finished with the most expensive figures for Sri Lanka.
Earlier in the day, we saw a mature batting effort from a very young team looking to find their feet in the international arena. They showed tremendous application and a strong desire to fight it out and put up a competitive total on the board. With Sri Lanka in not the best of form and with the skill of the Afghan bowlers, we surely did expect a contest but never expected it to be so one sided in favor of the latest country to get Test status.
A dream start to the tournament for the minnows and a shocking defeat for the 1996 World Cup champions. This will jolt them badly. A 91-run defeat is a thrashing and it will take a lot determination and effort on their part to overcome this loss and bounce back in their future games. Afghanistan's bowling was second to none. All their bowlers except for Aftab Alam managed to take two wickets each and two run outs of De Silva and Jayasuriya sealed it for them.

W
Rashid Khan To Lasith Malinga OUT!
OUT! As plumb as it can get! The middle of middle stump is where the ball would have smashed into, as per the Hawk Eye. Rashid Khan unveils his magic as he fires this very full in the line of the stumps. Malinga tries to sweep across the line towards the mid-wicket area. But the Sri Lankan pacer gets beaten in flight and pace. The ball sneaks under his bat and raps him on the pads. They appeal and the finger has gone up. The Sri Lankan innings has capitulated here and the ever-impressive Afghanistan start their 2018 Asia Cup campaign with a thumping 91-run win.

W
Gulbadin Naib To Thisara Perera OUT!
OUT! The death rattle! Naib delivers the knockout blow in all likelihood. He takes out Perera with a slower length ball around off, angling in from around the wicket. Perera tries to deposit the ball into the mid-wicket stand but he completely loses his shape and balance. The ball goes under his bat and crashes into the wooden sticks behind. Just the lone wicket remaining now. Can Afghanistan finish this off quickly?

W
Mohammad Nabi To Akila Dananjaya OUT!
OUT! That's the class of Nabi. He is definitely a world class bowler with his accuracy and his change in pace almost each ball. He flights this one as well and keeps it on off. Dananjaya goes for the wild slog across the line and completely misses the ball as he is seen losing his balance also. The ball makes contact with the stumps and it's a very ugly dismissal. Afghanistan inching closer.
