SL vs ZIM Dream11 Match Prediction Choices For Captain And Vice-Captain

Sikandar Raza – Captain

Sikandar Raza, with his wealth of experience garnered from global franchise cricket, stands out as a crucial asset for Zimbabwe in the upcoming clash. 

His impressive strike rate, coupled with a knack for playing risk-free shots, makes him a formidable force in the middle order. 

Sri Lanka’s bowlers will need to tread carefully against Raza’s skill set, making him a top choice for the captaincy role in your Dream11 team.

Dilshan Madushanka – Vice-captain 

Dilshan Madushanka’s ability to swing the ball early on and pick up crucial wickets adds a dynamic edge to Sri Lanka’s bowling attack. 

Madushanka showcased his prowess in the ODI series, and his eagerness to continue his good form makes him a noteworthy vice-captaincy option.
