Sri Lanka won the third one day international by nine wickets after bowling a second-string Zimbabwe out for a world record low of 35. Zimbabwe capitulated in 18 overs in an innings in which there were four ducks and no one made double figures. It was the lowest ever one day international score.

The hosts inexperience several senior players are currently in dispute with the country's cricketing authorities was plain to see as the tourists ripped through their batting line-up on their way to a nine wicket win.Zimbabwe were bowled out in just 87 minutes and Sri Lanka knocked off the 36 runs required for victory for the loss of just Russel Arnold.The hosts total was one lower than that scored by Canada in the 2003 World Cup against Sri Lanka in Paarl.Chaminda Vaas took four for 11 for Sri Lanka, moving to 300 one-day international wickets in the process.The win gives Sri Lanka an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

The previous lowest total was 36 when Sri Lanka routed Canada in the 2003 World Cup.Zimbabwe were without 15 leading players, who were continuing to demand the reinstatement of Heath Streak as captain, changes to the national selection panel and what they consider a suitable system for solving player grievances.
