Sri Lanka will be squaring off against Zimbabwe in the second T20I of the three-match series at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The first T20 between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe was a thrilling contest where the result came out on the last ball of the match. Earlier, Zimbabwe were asked to bat first after losing the toss. Zimbabwe posted a good-looking total of 143/5 in 20 overs after Sikandar Raza smashed 62-run off 42 balls with five fours and two sixes. Maheesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga scalped two wickets each for Sri Lanka, while Dushmantha Chameera picked up a wicket.

In the chase, Sri Lanka lost Pathum Nissanka quite early for just two runs. However, Angelo Mathews’ experience helped them come out of a tough situation. Mathews went on to score 46 off 38, but he received good support from former skipper Dasun Shanaka, who scored 26* off 18  and helped to get victory on the last ball of the game. After an impressive inning of 62-run, Captain Sikandar Raza was also impressive with the ball. He picked up three wickets after conceding just 13 runs in four overs. Blessing Muzarabani picked up two wickets, while Richard Ngarva and Wellington Masakadza picked up a wicket each.

The pitch at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo typically favors bowlers, especially to spinners and slow bowlers. The pitch will offer turn and grip. So batting is expected to be challenging on this surface and the batters will need to spend some time. The average first-innings score of 134 indicates the slowness of the wicket in Colombo. Similar things can be expected in the second T20I. Hence, the team that wins the toss should bat second.
