SL vs ZIM 2nd ODI Preview
The R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo is set to host a mouthwatering showdown on January 8th, 2024, as Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe clash in the decisive second ODI of their three-match series. Both teams come into this encounter tied 1-1 after thrilling performances in the first two matches, setting the stage for a nail-biting finale.
Memorable First ODI:
The opening ODI was a rollercoaster, with Zimbabwe posting a commanding 296/9 on the back of Sikandar Raza’s stunning 117. However, Sri Lanka’s young guns, Pathum Nissanka and Charith Asalanka, rose to the occasion with centuries, guiding their team to a comfortable 9-wicket victory with over 10 overs to spare.
While Sri Lanka hold the upper hand in recent encounters, the head-to-head stats in ODIs paint a closer picture. Sri Lanka lead 33-22, but Zimbabwe have triumphed in their last two ODI meetings on Sri Lankan soil, including a memorable 22-run win in the first ODI of this very series.
Key Players to Watch:
- Sri Lanka: Pathum Nissanka and Charith Asalanka have been in phenomenal form, while Dilshan Madushanka’s pace bowling has been a revelation. Dasun Shanaka’s leadership and all-round skills will also be crucial.
- Zimbabwe: Sikandar Raza is the undisputed leader of the pack, both with bat and ball. The pace duo of Richard Ngarava and Victor Nyauchi have been potent, while Wesley Madhevere’s spin could play a vital role.
