Afghanistan are playing their second ICC World Cup and would be hoping for a better showing than the 2015 edition. They face Sri Lanka on Tuesday, a rival they have played earlier too in the World Cup when they met during the 2015 edition at Dunedin. After being in trouble against the Sri Lankan medium-pacers, Afghanistan had made life difficult for their rivals with the ball, having them struggling at 51/4 before Mahela Jayawardene came in and scored a fine century to guide the islanders to a win.

Both teams lost their World Cup 2019 openers. Afghanistan lost to Australia by seven wickets while Sri Lanka were crushed by 10 wickets by New Zealand after posting just 136 runs.
