Lakmal gave away just 23 runs in his man-of-the-match performance. Danushka Gunathilaka then hit 35 and Upul Tharanga 39 as Sri Lanka made 83 without losing a wicket in just 11.5 of their 50 overs.

The 10-wicket win left Zimbabwe in third place in the tri-series and handed Sri Lanka another match against hosts Bangladesh in Saturday’s final.

Sri Lanka bowled out Bangladesh for just 82 runs in a one-day international in Dhaka on Thursday, with Suranga Lakmal leading a ferocious bowling attack with 3-21.

The visiting bowlers demolished Bangladesh’s batting line up with Dushmantha Chameera, Thisara Perera and Lakshan Sandakan chipping in with two wickets each.

Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored with 26 runs for Bangladesh after skipper Mashrafe Mortaza won the toss and opted to bat first. Sabbir Rahman was the only other batsman to reach double figures, with 10 runs on a woeful morning for the hosts.
