All the three teams will play two matches each with the other teams in the series. The two teams with maximum points will reach the final which will be played on November 23 at Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo. Zimbabwe will have the home side advantage in the match while Sri Lanka will be confident walking into the series after defeating the hosts recently in the Test series.

Zimbabwe have picked Carl Mumba and Tarisai Musakanda while Tinashe Panyangara makes in the ODI squad. Peter Moor is likely to keep the stumps. Moor has emerged as one of the most dependable batsmen of the side but is yet to shine as much as a wicketkeeper. Asela Gunaratne and Lahiru Kumara are the new names in the Sri Lanka side while playing under Tharanga will also be a new experience for the side.
