Skipper’s at Toss
Dimuth Karunaratne: In the last game also we batted first, now we know how the conditions will play. The batsmen have an idea of how to score big runs here. It’s not a 300 wicket here. It’s (captaincy) not easy, it’s a good challenge. I’ve got a couple of captains (in the team) who have captained Sri Lanka before .. they give me the support. Jeevan Mendis is not playing. Pradeep is playing.
Gulbadin Naib: We want to bowl first. The conditions are good for the bowlers. It’s a good toss to win. We put a good total, but that wasn’t enough against a team like Australia. I’m not looking at the past records. Sri Lanka is a champion side. If you play good cricket, the result will go on your side. No changes.
Sri Lanka: Lahiru Thirimanne, Dimuth Karunaratne(c), Kusal Perera(w), Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Nuwan Pradeep, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga
Afghanistan: Mohammad Shahzad(w), Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib(c), Najibullah Zadran, Rashid Khan, Dawlat Zadran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Hamid Hassan
