Key Insights

In a rain-curtailed third ODI, Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga spun his magic on the pitch against Zimbabwe by picking a 7-fer. His bowling figures of 7 wickets for 19 runs are one of the best bowling performances in the 50-over format.

During the Sri Lanka-Zimbabwe series, Zimbabwe’s Richard Ngarava made history by picking up a five-wicket haul in the second ODI. His figures of 5 for 32 are the best by a Zimbabwe bowler against Sri Lanka in a bilateral series.

During England’s busy summer schedule, fans will be delighted to a 5-match ODI series against rivals Australia. Since 5-match series have become rarer, it will be an interesting battle between these 2 sides.

Apart from that, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, India, and the West Indies are slated to play the ODI series in the coming months.
