The Zimbabwe cricket team leveled five-match series after grabbing a win by 4 wickets in the 4th ODI at Hambantota. Riding on Craig Ervine's unbeaten 69, the visitors pulled off a terrific victory over Sri Lanka.

Initially, chasing a target of 301, Zimbabwe openers began the chase in a decent manner. But the play was put to halt due to rain after 21st over when Zimbabwe's score read 139/5.

The target for Zimbabwe was eventually reduced to 209 in 31 overs.

Craig Ervine began the proceedings in an aggressive fashion and hammered Sri Lankan bowlers to guide his side to a win.
