Watch Zimbabwe Tri-Nation Series 2016, 4th ODI Match full highlights between SL v Zim today from Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo Monday 21st November 2016. Sri Lanka has already won a match from Zimbabwe and lost one against WI, now Sri Lanka is at the second position in the points table with five points. Zimbabwe captain won the toss and he decided to bat first. Zimbabwe scored 55 runs with 2 wickets down in 13.3 overs then rain interrupted the play. BB Chari opener of the Zimbabwean team scored 11 runs by facing 25 balls and out.
Toss: Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat.
When Zimbabwe first wicket down then score was 20 and it was 4.5 125.7 kph, umpire Rusere’s finger goes up. This looks very adjacent, Kulasekara celebrates the wicket with a fist pump. Nice and full, swings back in a bit. Chibhabha is caught playing across the front pad and is trapped in front of middle. His head falls over too. It would have carried on to crash into middle and leg. Playing across the line is fraught with danger on these surfaces. Hitting leg, according to the tracker 20/1.
When the second wicket down then it was (BB Chari) 10.2 from de Silva, Another chaotic mix-up, Chibhabha was the victim on Saturday. Chari is the victim here. There was never a run there. Never. Slid onto the leg stump from round the wicket, Chari dabs it a few feet to the right of short midwicket and scampers off. Ervine is not interested in changing a single. Chari, however, is almost halfway down the pitch. He turns back, and dives desperately, but is caught miles short. Mendis ran across, grabbed the ball, and threw it flat to Dickwella, the keeper, who did the rest 41/2. KMDN Kulasekara took one wicket.

Monday’s pitch should play much the same as Saturday’s, without much lateral movement for the quicks while slowing up and offering something for the spinners later on. While there is a cloud around, Monday should be mostly warm and dry. Late afternoon storms are always a possibility at this time of the year.
Of the three squads, Sri Lanka has the most depth in the spin department and they may look to swap one of their seamers for a spinner. Lakshan Sandakan is a left-arm wrist-spinner, and the sort of bowler the Zimbabweans will very rarely have faced. With the ability to turn the ball both ways, as well as skid it into the pads, he would be a handful on a traditional Bulawayo track.
Elton Chigumbura’s form with the bat will be a worry for Zimbabwe. He has managed only nine runs from two innings, but his level head and more than 200 ODIs’ worth of experience will continue to add value, and Zimbabwe might not want to upset the XI that clicked on Saturday.
