After Hamilton Masakadza’s rousing century propelled Zimbabwe to 310 for eight, this is one match they could have won. Nay, it’s a match they should have won.

But after putting up a bland bowling performance, exacerbated by poor fielding, Zimbabwe could not stop Sri Lanka from winning the third between the two sides by eight wickets in Hambantota today.

A brilliant all-round performance helped India beat Sri Lanka by 16 runs in a group stage match of the ICC Women's World Cup at the County Cricket ground on Wednesday.

Chasing 233, Sri Lanka never looked in the contention as they lost their wickets at regular intervals. Middle-order players -- Chamari Atapattu (25), Dilani Manodara (37) and Shashikala Siriwardene (61) -- however, displayed some good batting, but Indian bowlers soon overpowered them.

The third One-Day International (ODI) match between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka this Thursday is delicately poised. The two teams will go to the magnificent Hambantota International Cricket Stadium or – to give it its proper name as it was named after Sri Lanka’s former President – the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket (MRIC) Stadium on level terms. Their five-match ODI series is tied after two games.

Zimbabwe won the first match at the Galle International Cricket Stadium last Friday, shocking the hosts who were looking for a series sweep on the rebound from the disappointment of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, whose aftermath has seen the departure of coach Graham Ford and a public spat between sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekera and bowler Lasith Malinga, resulting in a fine and suspended ban for the latter.

In the other match in Taunton, India beat the West Indies by seven wickets, thanks to an unbeaten 106 from Smriti Mandhana. The West Indies side was restricted to 183 for eight and India overtook that score for the loss of just three wickets in 42.3 overs.
