SL vs ZIM Dream11 Team, Who will win Sri lanka vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI Today Match Prediction 18 January


SL vs ZIM Today Match Prediction: Both Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe were involved in what could be dubbed as a humdinger of a contest in the recently concluded first ODI in Pallekele. Opting to bat first, Zimbabwe posted 296 runs in the first innings, with openers Takudzwanashe Kaitano and Regis Chakabva posting an 80-run stand which was followed by a scintillating ton from Sean Williams. In response, the hosts chased down the total with five wickets in hand and nine deliveries to spare, as they rode on the enthralling performances from opener Pathum Nissanka and middle-order duo of Dinesh Chandimal and Charith Asalanka, who scored a minimum of 75-runs each to propel the Sri Lankan cricket team to a 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODIs.
