Fazalhaq Farooqi grabbed 3 arches as Afghanistan limited Sri Lanka in the opening suit of the Asia Mug in Dubai on Saturday.
The 21-year tool pacer took 3 for 11, while Mujeeb Ur Rahman as well as captain Mohammad Nabi selected 2 each as Sri Lanka might just muster up 105 in the Team B component at the Dubai International Cricket Arena.
The only intense area for Sri Lanka was Bhanuka Rajapaksa, that made a bold 38 from 29 shipments with 5 borders as well as a 6, after Farooqi’s twin strikes in the initial over of the suit.
Chamika Karunaratne racked up 31 from 38 spheres with 3 borders as well as a 6, while Danushka Gunathilaka made a run-a-ball 17 with 3 borders.
Sri Lanka: 105 full blast in 19.4 overs (Bhanuka Rajapaksa 38, Chamika Karunaratne 31, Danushka Gunathilaka 17; Fazalhaq Farooqi 3-11, Mohammad Nabi 2-14, Mujeeb Ur Rahman 2-24) vs Afghanistan.
