Match Summary:

Afghanistan which is looking for an upset lost his momentum at the end and lost the match. As Siri Lanka beat Afghanistan by 34 runs (D/L Method) in the 7th match of World Cup 2019.  Nuwan Pradeep and Lasith Malinga played the lead role as Sri Lanka fought to crush Afghanistan’s hopes of winning the World Cup. Afghanistan had taken command of half the day in Cardiff after firing Sri Lanka for 201. But in the face of a revised target to the rain of 187 on 41 rain withdrawals, their stick collapsed and 152 were defeated.

Pradeep takes 4 wickets for 31 runs, while Malinga took 3 wickets for giving 39 runs.

The Afghan captain, Gulbadin Naib, and Najibullah Zadran began to reverse the trend with a position of 64. But Pradeep hit twice, with Naib LBW before Rashid Khan left Afghanistan 123-7. And when Najibullah was chased by the direct hit of Dimuth Karunratne, Afghanistan lost a ninth wicket.

A little earlier, Sri Lanka had begun to vigorously assert itself against the unsubsidized Afghans, who suffered a defeat against Australia in the first tournament in the first game of their tournament.
