AFG 129-4 (20) | SL VS AFG, Asia Cup 2023 Cricket LIVE Score and Updates: AFG 4 Down

After 50 overs, Sri Lanka has scored 291 runs against Afghanistan. The sixth match of the 2023 Asia Cup is now taking place at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium between the two sides. Any team can be eliminated from the tournament with a significant loss, therefore Afghanistan is under extreme pressure to maintain their Super Four qualification status.

Despite being without a few important players from their starting lineup, Dasun Shanaka-led Lanka played well in their opening match, defeating Bangladesh in style. To remain in this match, Afghanistan must chase a target of at least 300 (assuming Sri Lanka sets it), and if they do, they must defeat Sri Lanka by at least 237 runs.
