Zimbabwe started the ODI tri-series involving West Indies and Sri Lanka with a disappointing loss to the Lankans before they brought some sense of pride to get a tie – and a thrilling one – against the West Indies. But the fourth ODI of the series was washed out after Zimbabwe were 55/2 in the 14th over.
The washout has changed things a bit as far as the complexion of this series in concerned. The winner of the next match, between West Indies and Sri Lanka will be through to the final. The situation for Zimbabwe remains the same. They need a win against West Indies to have a chance to make the final. Even if West Indies lose against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe will have to win and can’t be saved by the net run rate.
The next match, on Wednesday, sees Sri Lanka and West Indies go head to head.
