Zimbabwe beat Sri Lanka by 12 runs in the second match of the tri-nation ODI series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka, today.
Sikandar Raza and Tendai Chatara starred as Zimbabwe bounced back from an opening defeat to Bangladesh with a confidence-boosting victory over Sri Lanka in the ODI tri-series. Raza smashed 81 from 67 balls to add the finishing touches to foundations laid by Hamilton Masakadza (73) in Zimbabwe’s 290/6, with Chatara then taking 4/33 to bowl Sri Lanka out for 278.
