After securing a four-wicket win in a rain-curtailed match, Zimbabwe eye maiden series win over Sri Lanka as the two teams square off in the decider on Monday. Zimbabwe, who have surprised everyone after notching wins in the first and fourth ODIs, will rely on Hamilton Masakadza, Solomon Mire and Craig Ervine to continue to make their mark against Lanka. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will feel the heat after failing to defend a total of 300 at Hambantota. With openers Danushka Gunathilaka and Niroshan Dickwella in sublime form, hosts will hope for a similar start when they come out to bat on Monday. However, bowling continues to be an area of concern for both the sides. Before the current ODI series, Zimbabwe had beaten Sri Lanka twice in 30 ODIs since 2000.
