Expert Prediction

Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe 2024 Series Predictions

According to our analysis, Sri Lanka is a stronger team and they are a strong side to defeat at their home pitches. Sri Lanka also has the upper hand in the ODI head to head record against Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is sure to give a good fight to Sri Lanka but winning the series will be a difficult task for them.

Sri Lanka played decently well in the ODI World Cup 2023. They will be playing with that strong squad along with the return of spinner all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga.
