In what promises to be an exciting encounter, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka will face off in the 4th match of the Super Sixes round at the ICC ODI World Cup Qualifiers 2023. The match is scheduled to take place today at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.
Both teams have displayed exceptional performances throughout the tournament, winning all their group stage matches and commencing the Super Six round with victories. With their impressive track record, both Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka are considered strong contenders to secure a spot in the highly anticipated 2023 ODI World Cup in India.
Zimbabwe’s most recent match saw them pitted against Oman, where the hosts emerged victorious by a margin of 14 runs. On the other hand, Sri Lanka faced off against the Netherlands in their previous encounter and emerged triumphant with a 21-run victory.
