Toss Zimbabwe chose to bat v Sri Lanka
Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Zimbabwe chose to bat on a fresh Mirpur surface expected to favour batting. Graeme Cremer, their captain, said the surface may also get more difficult to score on as the game goes on. Zimbabwe had also batted first in the first game between these sides, and won by 12 runs.

Sri Lanka chose to beef up their spin attack, bringing in left-arm wristspinner Lakshan Sandakan at the expense of legspinning-allrounder Wanindu Hasaranga. That means Sri Lanka have two frontline spin options for the first time in the tournament, with Akila Dananjaya also in the XI.

Zimbabwe are unchanged from the side that defeated Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

The weather is expected to remain good for the duration of this encounter.

Sri Lanka: 1 Kusal Perera, 2 Upul Tharanga, 3 Kusal Mendis, 4 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 5 Dinesh Chandimal (capt.) 6 Asela Gunaratne, 7 Thisara Perera, 8 Akila Dananjaya, 9 Suranga Lakmal, 10 Lakshan Sandakan, 11 Nuwan Pradeep

Zimbabwe: 1 Hamilton Masakadza, 2 Solomon Mire, 3 Craig Ervine, 4 Brendon Taylor (wk), 5 Sikander Raza, 6 Malcolm Waller 7 PJ Moor, 8 Graeme Cremer (capt.), 9 Kyle Jarvis, 10 Tendai Chatara, 11 Blessing Muzarabani
