SL vs ZIM: Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Dream11 Prediction, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 2nd ODI;

SL vs ZIM 2nd ODI: On Tuesday, Sri Lanka will play Zimbabwe in the second one-day international of the series. The hosts, as expected, won the first ODI by 5 wickets with 9 balls to spare to take a 1-0 lead in the series, but they had to fight hard to defeat Zimbabwe. Pathum Nissanka, Dinesh Chandimal, and Charith Asalanka all contributed useful half-centuries to their pursuit of the aim. They are looking forward to clinching the series with one game remaining.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, should be encouraged by their performance in the first ODI. They gave it their all, but in the end, they came up short. The first ODI was highlighted by Sean Williams’ tenacious century and rookie Takudzwanashe Kaitano’s brilliant 42 runs. They need to win this game to stay in the series.

Top Picks ­– Batters

Charith Asalanka continues to demonstrate his worth. In the first ODI, his under-pressure innings guided Sri Lanka to victory. Before being removed for 71 runs, he batted exceptionally well.

Craig Ervine failed to impress in the first ODI, being removed for only 9 runs. To get going, Zimbabwe’s captain just has to spend more time at the crease.

Top Picks ­– All-Rounders

Despite bowling for 6.9 runs per over in the first ODI against Zimbabwe, Chamika Karunaratne took three key wickets. At the death overs, he can throw the kitchen sink at anything.

In the first ODI of the series, Sean Williams scored his fifth ODI century and passed the 4000 run barrier. He’s a big match player who’s hoping to keep up his good form.

Top Picks ­– Bowlers

Despite not getting a wicket in the first ODI, Maheesh Theekshana bowled brilliantly, conceding only 40 runs in his complete quota of 10 overs. For your fantasy teams, he’s still a good choice.

In the first ODI, Zimbabwe’s best bowler was Richard Ngarava. He made vital breakthroughs and picked up three wickets. For your fantasy teams, he’s a must-have.

Top Picks ­– Wicketkeepers

In the first ODI, Regis Chakabva laid a good platform for Zimbabwe, scoring 72 runs off 81 balls to set the tone for the visitors. He is likely to repeat his performance in the second ODI.
