Dickwella, Gunathilaka give Sri Lanka big win

Sri Lankan cricketer Danushka Gunathilaka plays a shot during the third one-day international cricket match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe at the Suriyawewa Mahinda Rajapakse International Cricket Stadium in the southern district of Hambantota

Zimbabwe cricket convenor of selectors Tatenda Taibu said adapting to the way the Sri Lankans play will be crucial when the two team teams lock horns in the third One Day International (ODI) match in Hambantota today.

Later, coming out to chase the target of 311 runs, Dickwella (102) and Gunathilaka (116) put up a brilliant opening partnership of 229-runs to lead SL to victory in 47.2 overs. Dickwella hit 14 boundaries during his stay, while Gunathilaka smashed 15 fours and a six before going back to the pavilion.

In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount.

While Zimbabwe's win gave them their first ever win over Lanka in any format, the home team's win by eight wickets in Hambantota on Thursday gave them a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

Batsman Solomon Mire also reached his milestone as he got his maiden ODI century when he top scored for Zimbabwe with 112 runs.

Ryan Burl the left-hand bowler from the Zimbabwe Cricket team was feeling sick because of the food he consumes in the team's hotel however, he was transfer to the Sri Lankan hospital where they treat him for allergy issues from a fish.

Teenage leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who took a hat-trick on his ODI debut in the second match in Galle, and paceman Asela Gunaratne grabbed two wickets each.

Masakadza's 98-ball 111 was laced with 15 fours and a six. Sri Lanka looked to restrict Zimbabwe for a lesser total but a cameo from Peter Moor down the order guided his side to go over 300-run mark.

"We need to get runs on the board batting first, but 310 was enough, we just need to get better with the field. What I'm sure we will do is be proactive in having an adaption to their adaption", Taibu told the Daily News from Hambantota, Sri Lanka yesterday.

Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer hopes to capitalise on this aspect.
