Zimbabwe Bowled Out For Record Low 82 In Sri Lanka Decider

Sri Lanka skipper Wanindu Hasaranga cut through Zimbabwe’s bottom order to bowl the tourists out for their worst-ever T20 innings total of 82 in Thursday’s series decider in Colombo.

Zimbabwe had a creditable start with 56-3 after the first six overs of power play but struggled to score boundaries once fielding restrictions eased.

Number three batsman Brian Bennett top-scored with 29 off just 12 balls, including four boundaries in the second over, before Hasaranga sent him back.

But a quick collapse saw the tourists lose their last six wickets for just 11 runs including three in the final three balls of the innings.

Sri Lanka’s fielding stepped up after a shambolic show in the second match handed them a four-wicket defeat and Zimbabwe their first T20 win in the island nation.

Hasaranga’s 4-15 was backed up with a return to form by ex-skipper Angelo Mathews, who shared the new ball and finished with two wickets.

Mathews had conceded 24 runs in the final over of the second match to gift Zimbabwe their come-from-behind win.
