Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to field first. They dismissed the Zimbabwean’s cheaply for 62 runs in 41.4 overs. Nonhlanhla Nyathi was the only batsman who showed any form of resistance against the Sri Lankans. She was Zimbabwe’s top scorer with 18 runs from 114 deliveries, a true confirmation that the team was struggling against superior bowling. Chamani Roshini Seneviratna was the main author of Zimbabwe’s demise with career best figures of five wickets for 15 runs in ten overs.
Zimbabwe did not give their bowlers much of a total to defend and Sri Lanka beat the meagre target in 10.5 overs. Opening batsman Yosanda Mendis scored a match winning career best innings of an unbeaten 35 runs from 31 balls. Sharyce Saili was the pick of the Zimbabwean bowlers with three for 19 runs in four overs. The ladies will play against neighbouring South Africa on Sunday at the Narayanganj Osmani Stadium.
