Building up to the Sri-Lankan tour, the Chevrons have had decent preparation after playing Scotland before facing the Netherlands.

Zimbabwe cricket team head coach Heath Streak says the preparatory games were vital in gearing up for the Sri-Lanka challenge.

Streak has challenged the senior players to stand up and be counted as the Chevrons look to capitalise in recent changes to the Sri-Lankan coaching department after Graham Ford terminated his contract resulting in South African Nic Pothas being named interim head coach.

Zimbabwe and Sri-Lanka square off in five ODIs with the first one set for this Friday.

Zimbabwe tour Sri Lanka for the first time in 15 years and Streak is hoping for favourable fortunes.

Friday’s ODI is set for the Galle International Stadium, which will host its first limited-overs match in 17 years.
