SL vs ZIM 2nd T20I Preview
Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe go head-to-head in the 2nd T20I on Tuesday, 16th January 2024. With both teams desperate for a win to keep their series hopes alive, expect fireworks from the outset!
Sri Lanka, smarting from a narrow defeat in the first T20I, will be eager to bounce back and level the series. Their batting, spearheaded by the in-form Pathum Nissanka and the experienced Kusal Mendis, looked promising in the previous match, but they’ll need to address their middle-order woes to post a challenging total. The bowling unit, led by the crafty Wanindu Hasaranga, needs to tighten up in the death overs, an area where they were plundered in the first game.
Zimbabwe, riding the wave of home support, will be brimming with confidence after their thrilling victory in the series opener. The heroics of their skipper, Craig Ervine, who smashed a match-winning fifty, will inspire the entire team. The likes of Sikandar Raza and Wesley Madhevere will look to continue their good form with the bat, while the spin duo of Wellington Masakadza and Ryan Burl will aim to exploit any weaknesses in the Sri Lankan batting lineup.
