SL vs ZIM Match Preview

These teams have crossed paths in T20Is three times before, and Sri Lanka emerged victorious on all three occasions.

Sri Lanka will be led by their new skipper, Wanindu Hasaranga, in the T20I series. The star spinner, who made a spectacular comeback in the last ODI against Zimbabwe, claimed a stunning seven-wicket haul to dominate the opposition. The expectations are high on Hasaranga as he takes the helm in the three-match series.

The all-rounder Angelo Mathews and spinner Akila Dananjaya are making a return to the shortest format for the first time since 2021. However, Sri Lanka might miss Pathum Nissanka, who is suspected to be down with dengue. It’ll be intriguing to see how they shape up their XI with plenty of talent in the squad.

On the other side, Zimbabwe will be led by their in-form all-rounder Sikandar Raza. Players like Brian Bennett, Carl Mumba, and Ainsley Ndlovu will feature in the T20I series, while Tapiwa Mufudza, Faraz Akram, and Takudzwanashe Kaitano are not part of the lineup.

SL vs ZIM Pitch Report

The most recent T20I at this venue took place in June 2022, revealing a wicket that behaved in a two-paced manner. The typical first innings score stands at 134, and captains winning the toss often opt to bowl first. Both pacers and spinners are expected to find good rhythm on this surface, while batters might face a bit of a challenge. It sets the stage for an intriguing battle between bat and ball in the upcoming match.
