Zimbabwe defeat Sri Lanka by 4 wickets

The fourth ODI Cricket match was between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka the match is conduct in Hambantota coming Saturday. But Ervine and Malcolm Waller (20) made sure the chase remained on track with their 43-run sixth-wicket partnership after rain interrupted play for over one-and a half hours.

"We have seen we can chase down a score and set a score and our batting has come right", Cremer said on the prospect of his side eyeing a major series win in over eight years.

Waller, the Zimbabwean off-spinner, got the prized wickets of the openers in successive overs to pull things back for the visitors. After winning the toss, hosts Sri Lanka elected to bat first and Dickwella and Gunathilaka compiled a record partnership of 209 runs for the first wicket to etch their name in the record books and become the first pair to score a 200-run partnership consecutively in ODIs.

In reply, Zimbabwe scored 219-6 in 29.2 overs after being set a target of 219 in 31 overs. He brought in Chris Mpofu, who had not played the series until now, to replace Carl Mumba, who sat out with an injured knee.

Sri Lanka has been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate against Zimbabwe during the third One-Day International in Hambantota on Thursday.
