3 players to watch out for in the Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan ODI series


Teams have begun to prepare for the One-Day International World Cup, which will be held in India next year. After being eliminated from the Super 12s in the recently concluded T20 World Cup in Australia, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will play three one-day internationals (ODIs) beginning November 25th at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. As part of the Cricket World Cup Super League, this series will determine direct qualification for the ODI World Cup. Afghanistan is seventh in the points rankings, while Sri Lanka is tenth. The top eight teams will automatically qualify for the ODI World Cup. Afghanistan are in a better position for a direct qualification while this series is important for Sri Lanka. Before the series let us look at the three players to watch out for in the series.

Fazalhaq Farooqi

He is a left-arm medium-fast bowler, who has performed admirably in the T20 World Cup. Afghan fans would like to see him continue his rising trend in the upcoming bilateral series against Sri Lanka. Farooqi has played seven ODIs since his debut against the Netherlands on January 25, 2022, capturing 13 wickets at an economy of 4.69. He has been impressive in the IPL 2022 as well.

Pathum Nissanka

He is a bright Sri Lankan talent. He has appeared in 17 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) since making his debut against the West Indies on March 10, 2021. Nissanka has 454 runs scored at a strike rate of 78.68, with one century and three fifties. He was instrumental in Sri Lanka winning the ODI series against Australia on home soil earlier this year.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

He is a wicket-keeper batter to keep an eye on. In the opening ten overs, he is a powerhouse who can also knock spinners around. He has appeared in 12 One-Day Internationals, scoring 456 runs at an average of 41.45, including three hundreds. He was part of GT last year but did not get a game. He has moved to KKR for IPL 2023. He struggled for runs in the T20 WC but he would look to get back in form in the ODI series.
