Teenager Wanidu Hasaranga took a hat-trick on his international debut as Sri Lanka took revenge on Zimbabwe with a seven-wicket drubbing in their second one-day international yesterday.
Fellow-spinner Lakshan Sandakan also took four wickets to earn the man-of-the-match award, as Sri Lanka hit back at their critics with a confident performance. Sri Lanka bowled out Zimbabwe for 155 and then reached 158-3 in 30.1 overs. Upul Tharanga ended unbeaten on 75. The win relieved pressure on Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews after the squad was accused of being unfit by the country’s sports minister.
Zimbabwe 155 all out in 33.4 overs (H Masakadza 41; L Sandakan 4-52, PWH de Silva 3-15) lost to Sri Lanka 158-3 in 30.1 overs (N Dickwella 35, WV Tharanga 75*) by seven wickets
