Watch Zimbabwe Tri-Nation Series 2016, 2nd ODI Match full highlights of SL v WI today from Harare Sports Club Wednesday 16th November 2016. Today’s match will be the big test for both teams because both teams contain almost youngsters/new players and it will be out of the country venue for both teams.
Sri Lanka played already a match against Zim and played very good but for West Indies, it will be their first match of the tour of Zimbabwe that may be difficult for them. As we know Sri Lanka has already got a victory that’s why they are confident another side West Indies struggling so much from their recent series in UAE.
Toss: Sri Lanka have won the toss and are fielding.
KC Brathwaite played three ODI’s and scored 85 runs with the highest 39 and he was third-most runs scorer from WI team. JO Holder captain of the team scored 58 runs in three innings. It means their batting performance was not good but this time they can improve their skills at Harare pitch because it is a good pitch for both sides batting/bowling. JO Holder captain himself took four wickets in three ODI’s and he was the most wicket-taker.
DAS Gunaratne took three wickets in his last ODI against Zim, KMDN Kulasekara, RAS Lakmal and N Pradeep these three bowlers took two wickets each of them. DM de Silva had got so much good luck because his wicket was down on the first ball of SL innings but it was no-ball, after that he blasts his innings with scoring 78 runs off 75 balls and goes not out.
MDKJ Perera contributed 21 runs, N Dickwella† scored 41 and BKG Mendis scored 12 runs. Most big players are not included in the West Indies squad because they are busy in BPL 2016.

Zimbabwe coach Heath Streak suggested it wasn’t so much the grass on the pitch as the clouds overhead that aided swing and seam on Monday, and both the pitch and weather conditions are expected to be very similar. Much of the day is expected to be cloudy and overcast, with occasional sunny spells, while there may well be thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Shehan Jayasuriya came in for some tap from Peter Moor on Monday, but there is no urgent reason for Sri Lanka to tinker with their XI. When the tri-series move to Bulawayo, they will have expanded opportunities to play their spinners, and there should be a similar make-up to their line-up against West Indies.
Multiple changes to their squad will have shaken West Indies up somewhat, and despite their long-form success in the UAE, West Indies’ recent 3-0 defeat in the ODIs against Pakistan will be in the back of their minds. All the new names in their batting line-up have a chance to clean the slate, and there are several middle-order slots up for grabs and several all-round options.
