All-round Sikandar Raza gives Zimbabwe historic ODI triumph over Sri LankaSikandar Raza starred with both the bat and ball to help Zimbabwe edge out Sri Lanka by three wickets and clinch a historic series victory in the fifth One-day International.
Hello and welcome to our Live coverage of the fifth and the final ODI between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in Hambantota. It has been a cracker of a series so far and the winner today will take it all. Contrary to expectations, the visitors have taken their game to a new level all together. Who would have expected them to be on equal terms at present before this tour started. It has been a team effort for them with different players chipping in at crunch situations. Graeme Cremer is leading from the front and if his side emerges victorious today, it would be their first bilateral series win over a a Test-playing nation away from home, since they beat Bangladesh in Bangladesh in 2001. On the other hand, Sri Lanka have been prolific with the bat as their top order has been in supreme form. However, it is their bowling which has let them down. Their go-to man, Malinga has been toothless and that has deflated their morale. Bringing back Kulasekera into the mix might provide them some stability. A well-rounded performance is the need of the hour for them. Can the Lankan Lions bounce back to clinch the series or will Zimbabwe reign supreme in the decider? Catch all the Live updates here.
