Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

The three-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe is all set to reach its climax today with the two teams fighting it out in a winner takes all match-up. Zimbabwe pulled off an unbelievable win over hosts Sri Lanka in the second ODI, to level the series and keep the nation alive, and now, with the series win in their sights, we are sure that the Zimbabwe squad is going to come into this tie, all guns blazing.

Sri Lanka on the other hand will be playing to retain their pride on home soil. The Lankans were expected to run away with this series but the shock loss to their opponents in the 2nd ODI has surely given them a wake-up call. They will be looking to field the best lineup in order to guarantee a win.

The third and final ODI of the series will be taking place today, that is 21st January 2022 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.

Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI – Dream11 Top Picks

Charith Asalanka

Charith has been on our fantasy lineup for both the games and we plan to include him in the third as well for a few reasons. He has been handy with the bat, having scored 94 runs across the two matches against Zimbabwe. He is handy with the ball as well and can come in as a part-time bowler who is not very expensive. With the third ODI having so much importance, we expect Charith to play a big role in helping his nation try to clinch the series.

Chamika Karunaratne

The bowlers have not had much of a say in the two matches so far, but of the lot, Chamika has been immense for the Lankans. With 4 wickets across the two games, we expect him to dictate the bowling attack in the deciding match.

Sean Williams

On the Zimbabwe side of things, our first pick is Sean Williams. Coming in at No.4 in his squad, Sean has been the stabilizing factor in both the matches, with a century in the first ODI and a 48 in the second. Now that Zimbabwe actually has a chance at winning the series, Sean will be looking to put the final nail in the coffin and score that match-winning knock.

Richard Ngarava

The 24-year-old has been very impressive in the series and with 4 wickets to his name, we expect him to scalp a few more in the finale.
