Match Preview:

Sri Lanka, fresh off a narrow defeat in the first T20I, will be eager to bounce back and restore their pride. The home side, ranked sixth in the world, boasts a formidable batting line-up led by the explosive Pathum Nissanka and the veteran wisdom of Kusal Mendis. However, their middle order faltered in the previous game, and finding consistency will be crucial for their success.

The bowling attack, spearheaded by the wily Dushmantha Chameera and the skilful Wanindu Hasaranga, needs to tighten things up and prevent late order cameos like the one Sikandar Raza provided for Zimbabwe in the first match.

The Chevrons, ranked 11th in the world, surprised many with their spirited performance in the first T20I. Raza’s blistering fifty and Ryan Burl’s late flourish demonstrated their attacking intent. Their opening partnership, which has been inconsistent so far, needs to provide a solid foundation for the middle order to build upon.

The bowling unit, led by the experienced Blessing Muzarabani and the cunning Tendai Chatara, has shown glimpses of brilliance, but needs to be more disciplined against a potent Sri Lankan batting line-up.
