The 3rd ODI and the decider of the Zimbabwe Tour of Sri Lanka, 2022 will take place between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka at the Pallekele International cricket stadium, Kandy.

LIVE SCORES - Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe – 3rd ODI

Current Form Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe:

Zimbabwe have bounced back from their defeat in the first ODI and trumped Sri Lanka in the second ODI by 22 runs to level the series at 1-1.

Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to have a bat first. The openers started off in the same fashion as they did in the first ODI. They collected 59 runs for the first wicket partnership. Regis Chakabva made a valuable contribution of 47 runs up the order. After both the openers perished, it was the duo of Craig Ervine and Sean Williams that collected important runs in the middle overs. Sean Williams was dismissed for a well made 48 while Ervine scored 91 as he missed out on his century.

Sikandar Raza then took over the baton to take Zimbabwe to a competitive total. He smashed 56 off just 46 balls to ensure Zimbabwe cross the 300 run mark. Zimbabwe finished with a huge total of 302 for 8 in 50 overs. 

Chasing 302, Sri Lanka witnessed a horrible start and at one point, they were 63 for 4 and really struggling. This is when the skipper Shanaka walked to the crease and took the game deeper.  He stitched a partnership of 118 runs for the 5th wicket with Kamindu Mendis. Shanaka was the lone warrior however as the required run rate kept creeping up. He got dismissed while trying to up the scoring rate and after that it was all but over. Shanaka played a captain’s knock of 102 but it was not enough as Sri Lanka fell short by 22 runs.
