Sri Lanka Beat Zimbabwe by 6 wickets to Clinch Triangular One-Day Series


Bulawayo:

Upul Tharanga and Kusal Mendis struck half-centuries as Sri Lanka kick Zimbabwe by 6 wickets to bind a triangular array prize during Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo on Sunday.

After bowling Zimbabwe out for 160 inside 37 overs, Sri Lanka surrendered early wickets low before Tharanga and Mendis chased down a aim of 161 with some-more than 12 overs to spare.

Sri Lanka’s tip sequence were punished for a array of lax strokes as they sunk to 42 for 3 in respond to Zimbabwe’s medium total, with left-arm seamer Brian Vitori picking adult all 3 wickets.

But Mendis and Tharanga took a some-more wary approach, patiently adding 75 for a fourth wicket to make a outcome a formality.

Mendis fell for 57 with Sri Lanka requiring another 44 runs for victory, though captain Tharanga finished dominant on 57 to see his side opposite a line, before lifting a prize from a array that also concerned a West Indies.
