Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Live Score, 1st ODI in Colombo:

Sri Lanka looks to start the year with a win with the bat first While Sri Lanka will face Zimbabwe in the first match of the three-match ODI series at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Saturday, Chevron has three more T20 matches to play after the 50-over game in the island nation. Let’s see which team has come fully prepared.


There is a Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe ODI cricket match on 6 January 2024 in which Sri Lanka, batting first, has scored 273 runs and has lost 9 wickets. If we look at playing 50 overs, Faraz Akram has scored 58 runs and Musabani has scored 62 runs. Which is fine but let’s see what happens, will Zimbabwe win by batting well or will only one bowler win the match today?

 Somewhere like the announcement of the T20 ODI has been made tomorrow evening on 5th January, then in today’s match both the teams will go to win the match and both the teams would like that 2024 should start with their winning the match and that series. It will be very exciting to see which team wins how all the players of the team are preparing for the T20 and who gets selected.
