Sri Lanka will chase another victory as they face Zimbabwe in the second T20I of their three-match series today. The opening game between the two proved to be a thriller that saw Sri Lanka pick up the win by just three wickets.
The match began with Sri Lanka winning the toss and choosing to bowl first. Maheesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga found success for the hosts as they combined for four wickets while giving away just 35 runs.
Zimbabwe were kept to 143/5 in 20 overs.
Angelo Matthews top-scored with 46 runs for Sri Lanka before Dasun Shanaka smashed 26 runs in 18 balls to help the hosts cross the finish line. Having bagged a win in the first match, the Sri Lankas will now be eager to close out the series early.
Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe’s second T20I match will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium on Tuesday.
Zimbabwe were a little underwhelming on the batting front as both Craig Ervine and Sean Williams departed early. It was Sikandar Raza who led his team’s batting charge as he put up 62 runs. He stepped up once again during their defense, scalping three Sri Lankan wickets.
Despite Raza’s impressive individual show, Sri Lanka were able to squeeze a narrow victory.
