FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe Tri-nation series, 4th ODI at Bulawayo

The Tri-Nation series featuring hosts Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and West Indies started with the obvious result. In the first game of the seven-match series, Sri Lanka defeated Zimbabwe by eight wickets to get to a rollicking start. Although, the Sri Lankan got beaten by West Indies in the second game by 62 runs, followed by Zimbabwe’s thrilling performance in the third game against the Caribbean side. While chasing 258, Zimbabwe tied against West Indies by conceding only three out of four runs required from the last over. The fourth game is expected to be a tight affair between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, especially after looking at the way hosts played against West Indies and will help in determining which way the series pans out. The Upul Tharanga-led Sri Lanka have an edge against low-lying and inconsistent Zimbabwe, led by Graeme Cremer.

The head-to-head encounter between two sides stands in Sri Lanka s favour with 40 wins while Zimbabwe are lagging way behind with only 7 triumphs from 48 matches. By the end of this tri-series, this may change a lot. We may have a game in hand and witness the another close game of the series.
