Afghanistan Ascending

Author : Cricketgateway Staff 18 Sep, 2018

Over the last three years, the Afghanistan team has progressed phenomenally, and while they have been dominant against associate members and ODI status teams, the real revelation has been their competitiveness against Top 10 opponents. Admittedly they get fewer opportunities [they have played only 8 completed ODIs against such opposition between 2016-2018] but their 5 wins in those 8 games are testament of how they have been stepping their game up, like they did against the Lankans last night. Meanwhile, 

Sri Lanka's trajectory has sadly gone in the opposite direction as the once mighty team have strung together only 9 wins against the top 10 in 44 games during the same period.
