Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe, 1st ODI: Match Prediction – Who will win?

First ODI of the three-match series between Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe is scheduled for Saturday, January 6, at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Interestingly, the future series’ three games will all take place at the same location.

The Lankan Lions will be looking to bounce back from a dismal showing at the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 in India and enhance their results in the format. In the meantime, Zimbabwe will need to come together as a team moving forward in order to reclaim the slot that they were unable to secure during the ICC Men’s World Cup qualifiers.

Recently, Zimbabwe and Ireland played a three-match ODI series. While there was no outcome in the first match, Ireland won the second and third One-Day Internationals to seal the series 2-0. Zimbabwe won the second ODI of the three-game series, but ultimately lost the series 2-1 when they last visited Sri Lanka in January 2022.

This will be Sri Lanka’s first appearance in a variety of formats since their World Cup campaign ended. There have been a few recent adjustments to the Sri Lankan configuration. Along with naming new captains for the other two formats, Kusal Mendis was named captain of Sri Lanka in the One-Day Internationals. Craig Ervine will serve as Zimbabwe’s leader.

Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Pitch Report

The pitch will help the hitters all game long, but as the surface ages in the second half, the spinners will become increasingly important. The team batting first has won the match in five of the seven ODIs that have been played at this location. Still, the bat and the ball will engage in a level playing field.
