Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Predictions


The first T20I was a very tight affair which saw the hosts win off the final delivery. Zimbabwe will hope the can be that competitive again, however, the value for me is with Angelo Mathews and Sikandar Raza in the run scoring markets.

  • Sri Lanka have won their last 4 T20I matches against Zimbabwe.
  • Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews scored 46 runs in his last match.
  • Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza top scored in the last match.

Head to Head


Sri Lanka have won their last four T20I matches against Zimbabwe. That includes the first T20 of this series.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka hold a 1-0 lead in the three-match series after winning the opening fixture by three wickets.

Zimbabwe batted first, scoring 143 runs in their 20 overs. Maheesh Theekshana impressed with the ball, taking 2-16 in four overs.

The run chase was tight all the way through on a difficult wicket. Angelo Mathews’ 46 secured the win off the final ball of the match.

Sri Lanka Injuries & Team News


In their bid to secure the series, I expect Sri Lanka to remain unchanged, depending on pitch conditions.

Zimbabwe Form


Zimbabwe were within a whisker of winning the first match but suffered defeat off the final delivery.

Batting first, Sikandar Raza starred with the bat, scoring 62 off 42 balls. The next highest score was 26 as Zimbabwe posted a decent 143 runs in 20 overs.

Zimbabwe manfully tried to defend a total that was par at best. Sikandar Raza backed up his brilliant innings with the bat with a superb bowling spell, taking 3-13 in four overs. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the hosts won off the final delivery.

Zimbabwe Injuries & Team News


Zimbabwe put up a good fight in the first T20 so they should remain unchanged.

Verdict

Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews is backed to score 30+ runs and top score for the hosts.

For Zimbabwe, Sikandar Raza is backed in the best batsman market after his brilliant all-round display in the last game.
