He (Malinga) was superb final diversion and hopefully he can minister to a winning means today. Three changes due to a conditions. Akila comes behind in, as does Shehan Jayasuriya and Dushmantha Chameera. Aponso and Dilruwan skip out along with Suranga.
Asghar Afghan: We will bat first, wish to put runs on a house and afterwards urge it with a bowling. Seems like too most weed though we are used to personification in these conditions. We know a conditions well. We have one seamer, one all-rounder and 3 spinners detached from one part-time spinner.
