Good Afternoon, Goeie Middag, සුභ සන්ධ්යාවක්! Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the Zimbabwe-Sri Lanka-West Indies Tri-nation series 2016. This is the third One-Day International between hosts Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka and here you will get all the live updates of the match. The match will be played at Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo. Zimbabwe did not have a very good start to the tournament losing their first match while West Indies will be confident as they are coming from a victory against Sri Lanka, the team who defeated Zimbabwe in their first match. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Zimbabwe vs West Indies, Zimbabwe Tri-nation series, third ODI at Bulawayo

Zimbabwe have not played very well of late with a lot of changes going on in the team. The team is coming from two straight defeats in the Tests against both New Zealand and Sri Lanka and a victory in the ODI format under new captain Graeme Cremer will be a good mental boost for the home team. The team has the advantage of knowing the playing conditions well but have not been able to utilise it to the fullest.

On the other hand are West Indies for whom this series is much-needed for a comeback. West Indies had a disastrous tour against Pakistan in UAE, losing all the six matches in the limited-overs format. West Indies have started with a victory over a Sri Lankan team who have recently defeated Zimbabwe in both Tests and an ODI.

Squads:

Zimbabwe: Graeme Cremer (c), Brian Chari, Tarisai Musakanda, Carl Mumba, Chris Mpofu, Hamilton Masakadza, Chamu Chibhabha, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, Peter Moor (wk), Donald Tiripano, Tinashe Panyangara, Sikandar Raza, Tendai Chisoro, Elton Chigumbura.

West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Sulieman Benn, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jason Mohammed, Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Miguel Cummins, Evin Lewis, Devendra Bishoo, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell, Shane Dowrich (wk).
