A comprehensive win for Sri Lanka. Everything went right for them right from the toss. They put in the hosts to bat on a track that'd help the bowlers upfront. The bowlers didn't disappoint their new skipper Upul Tharanga as they bundled out the Zimbabweans for a scanty score of 154.

The chase wasn't about who will win, it was about when the match will get over. Panyangara had de Silva caught behind first ball, but it was deemed a no-ball. After that, it was all about de Silva. Kusal Perera started well, but perished looking to finish in a hurry. de Silva was joined by Dickwella and the duo shared a 84-run stand that almost sealed the game.

Mendis came to the crease and finished off the match with couple of boundaries. Sri Lanka, in the process, have also earned themselves a Bonus Point.

Match Rating 5.0/5.0
