Ervine fixes Sri Lanka, levels series: 4th ODI (Hambantota)

Craig Ervine smashed a quickfire, unbeaten 69 as Zimbabwe stunned Sri Lanka by four wickets to level the series 2-2 in a match shortened by rain.

Earlier, openers Niroshan Dickwella 9116) and Danushka Gunathilaka (87) posted the first ever consecutive 200-plus partnership in the history of ODI cricket.

Curiously Sri Lanka seem to take the pedal off the accelerator when looking likely to score 350+ as they lost late wickets in quick succession to settle for 300 for 6.

Chasing a revised target of 219 in 31 overs, Ervine’s 55-ball 69 not out got them home with 10 balls to spare.

Zimbabwe 219 for 6 (Ervine 69*, Mire 43, Hasaranga 3-40) beat Sri Lanka 300 for 6 (Dickwella 116, Gunathilaka 87, Waller 2-44) by four wickets (DLS method).
