Regis Chakabva was the teams best batter last year and has some form behind him. We would like to start with him as the teams best batter.

From Sri Lanka, Charith Asalanka was the teams best batter last year and ended the year as Sri Lankas highest run-getter. He is our pick for Sri Lanka top batter.

In the absence of Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana looks a real ace and we are backing him to take the most wickets for Sri Lanka in the coming game.

Who will win today match: SL vs ZIM ODI Match Team

This is going to be a tight series. Zimbabwe have a full-strength squad at its disposal thus are very capable to beat Sri Lanka. However, the hosts are used to the conditions and have a good team as well. Sri Lanka are favourite for us.

SL  Key Players: 

Dasun Shanaka: 

Dasun Shanaka will be the main man for Sri Lanka. Being the skipper, the onus is on him to lead from the front. He can contribute with bat and ball and thus is a valuable player.

Charith Asalanka:

The batter has made a sizzling start to his ODI career. He was in great form last year and scored 326 runs in 8 games. Sri Lanka will expect him to continue his good run.

Dushmantha Chameera:

Chameera will be the key for Sri Lanka in the bowling department. He was the teams highest wicket-taker with 20 wickets in 14 games last year. In the absence of Hasaranga, he will be key.

ZIM Key Players: 

Sean Williams: 

The senior batter is the teams best player. He can contribute both with bat and ball. He did not play a lot of ODI cricket last year and will be keen to start the new year with a bang.

Regis Chakabva:

The keeper batter had a brilliant 2021 and was the teams highest scorer in ODIs with 171 runs in 6 games. He too will be keen to start well.

Luke Jongwe:

In the bowling department, Luke Jongwe has been a real find. He can bowl with good pace and has a good head on his shoulders. He has all the credentials to be a match-winner for Zimbabwe.
