Host Sri Lanka will face Zimbabwe in the second ODI of the three-match series at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

The management will be extremely pleased with the performance of the players, especially the experienced campaigners, in the series opener while chasing a stiff target of 297.

They will be hoping that they will be able to produce a similar performance on Tuesday which will help the Islanders in sealing the series.

The management will be slightly concerned with the batting performance of the middle and lower middle-order in the first ODI even though the side managed to score 296 in their allotted 50 overs.

The home team has taken a 1-0 lead after securing a five-wicket win in the first fixture on Sunday.

Sri Lanka Preview

After winning the first fixture, Sri Lanka will enter Tuesday’s contest with high confidence and they will be unlikely to make too many changes in the starting XI as well for the next match.

In the batting department, the home team will be heavily relying on the likes of Captain Dasun Shanaka, first game’s player of the match Dinesh Chandimal, in-form Charith Asalanka, opening batter Pathum Nissanka and wicketkeeper-batter Kusal Mendis to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Nuwan Pradeep, Chamika Karunaratne, Jeffrey Vandersay and Maheesh Theekshana to claim timely breakthroughs and dismantle the visitors batting lineup.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Kusal Mendis (wk), Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Kamindu Mendis, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Chamika Gunasekara, Nuwan Pradeep

Zimbabwe Preview

Despite losing the first fixture, Zimbabwe will enter the second contest feeling relatively good about themselves and they are unlikely to make too many changes in the starting XI.

The management would feel that the side was in a great position to score more than 300 runs on Sunday but a collapse in the last 10 overs eventually resulted in the team restricting to 296 for the loss of nine wickets.

Therefore, the coaching staff will be hoping to see the players will produce a better display in the second ODI and help the side in levelling the series.

In the batting department, the visitors will be heavily relying on the likes of in-form Sean Williams, wicketkeeper-batter Regis Chakabva, captain Craig Ervine, Wessley Madhevere, middle-order batter Ryan Burl and all-rounder Sikandar Raza to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Takudzwanashe Kaitano, Regis Chakabva (wk), Craig Ervine (c), Wesley Madhevere, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Tendai Chatara

Weather Conditions

The wicket prepared at Pallekele will be a belter of pitch with no assistance to the bowlers. The weather forecast for the game is thundery showers in the afternoon

Venue Details

Pallekele International Cricket Stadium will host the second of the ODI series between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.

Toss: To Bat

Both the sides will be looking to win the toss, bat first and score in excess of 300 runs. The previous game was won by side batting second.

After a closely-fought contest in the first ODI, both teams will be eyeing another feisty battle on Tuesday where it will be not an easy call to make which team will come out on top.

On paper at least, Sri Lanka still look like a more solid team compared to Zimbabwe who will be once again depending on a few individuals to make it happen for them.

Therefore, the prediction is for Sri Lanka to secure a win and clinch the 50-over series.
