Commentary
  • 114.5 - FOUR! Sean Williams to Dilruwan Perera. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Driven sweetly into the gap at extra cover to seal the victory.

    What a Test Match. Record breaking chase from Sri Lanka, as it is their highest ever chase in the fourth innings, and it is the fifth highest of all time. Asela Gunaratne and Niroshan Dickwella played superbly today, and their natural attacking intent got them home. Credit must also go to Zimbabwe, who played their part in this magnificent game. Craig Ervine in the first innings, and Sikandar Raza in the second. Graeme Cremer also contributed massively. A great Test pitch, and lovely spirit throughout the five days. This was the best advert for the longest format of the game. Heartbreak for the visitors, but a successful tour for them nevertheless.

    Sri Lanka will now turn their focus to India, who they play next week.

  • 114.4 - Sean Williams to Dilruwan Perera. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Butt.

  • 113.6 - FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Leg spinner short, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Short, tired delivery from Cremer, and Dilruwan shovels it to the mid wicket boundary. Just three more required.

  • 111.4 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the back foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Another review taken. This time for leg before. It would've smashed in to the stumps, but the ball clearly pitched outside leg. Hopeful stuff from Zimbabwe.

  • 111.3 - Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Moor.

  • 111.2 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, bat-pad to slips for no runs, by Masakadza, appeal made for Caught. Appeal for the catch, given not out, but Zimbabwe review. Didn't pick the googly, tried to adjust his defence and got in an awkward tangle. A couple of noises, but the bat hits the pad before the ball clips the thigh pad. Correct decision by the umpire.

  • 111.1 - Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner half volley, down leg side on the back foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Mpofu.

  • 110.6 - Sean Williams to Asela Gunaratne. Stock ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Tiripano.

  • 110.2 - Sean Williams to Dilruwan Perera. Stock ball back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Musakanda.

  • 110.1 - Sean Williams to Asela Gunaratne. Stock ball full toss, down leg side on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Tiripano.

  • 109.6 - Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Chakabva.

  • 109.5 - Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Masakadza.

  • 109.4 - Graeme Cremer to Dilruwan Perera. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Butt.

  • 109.3 - Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Butt.

  • 109.2 - FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Gunaratne puts this one away though. Dragged down and hammered off the backfoot to the square leg fence.

  • 109.1 - APPEAL! Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Chakabva, appeal made for Caught. That would've been incredible if that was how they got the wicket. Gunaratne smashes a short delivery into short leg, and the ball pops up to the keeper. They claim the catch, and the umpire sends it upstairs. Soft signal was out, but the replays show that it clearly bounced into the turf before lobbing up to Chakabva.

  • 108.6 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Short, down leg side ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Chakabva.

  • 108.5 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, shy attempt by Cremer. Another opportunity for Zimbabwe. Dilruwan calls for the single, realises it isn't on, so sends Asela back. Cremer sprints round from mid on and fires a throw at the non-striker's. Direct hit would've left him short.

  • 108.4 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Butt.

  • 108.3 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Short, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Cremer.

  • 107.4 - Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, bottom edge to short fine leg for no runs, fielded by Waller.

  • 106.2 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Chakabva.

  • 106.1 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved to slips for no runs, fielded by Moor. That sums up Zimbabwe's day. An absolute snorter from Mpofu. Rising delivery that balloons up off the glove, and Perera looked very uncomfortable in playing that. It loops up in the air, but falls in no man's land.

  • 105.6 - Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Moor.

  • 105.5 - Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Cremer.

  • 104.6 - Christopher Mpofu to Dilruwan Perera. Short, outside off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Chakabva.

    Zimbabwe trying everything to find a breakthrough now. Sri Lanka are so close to pulling this off now. A flurry of wickets needed for the visitors.

  • 102.1 - Sean Williams to Dilruwan Perera. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, dropped catch by Chakabva. Another drop for the keeper! A thin nick behind and Chakabva shells it again. Pushed across Perera, who tried to drive too square, but the chance went begging for Zimbabwe.

  • 97.6 - FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Quicker ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Impressive stroke from Gunaratne.

  • 96.4 - FOUR! Sean Williams to Dilruwan Perera. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. A touch streaky for Perera.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Sean Williams to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Chakabva. Does this open the door for Zimbabwe to rattle through the rest of the line up? Dickwella has played wonderfully, but he takes on a risky reverse sweep against the spin. Extra bounce into his chest, which then ricochets off his glove and loops up to the keeper. Another twist in the game.

    Zimbabwe took the first hour, but Sri Lanka took the second. This is still enthralling viewing. Twists and turns throughout. This current partnership is pushing the hosts towards that target, but they still have a lot of work to do. Much will be said about whether Dickwella should have been given out stumped off Raza, but the third umpire gave the benefit to the batsman. The new ball will be crucial in the afternoon session. If it earns a few wickets, Zimbabwe still aren't out of this. Unmissable second session to come.

That is a huge, huge call from the third umpire. It could change the outcome of the Test. Raza rips one past the outside edge and Chakabva whips the bails off instantly. The replays show that Dickwella hasn't got anything behind the line. The backfoot is dead on the crease, but the third umpire clearly has some doubt as he has looked at it many times. Not out given, much to the annoyance of Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka have got away with that.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Graeme Cremer to Angelo Mathews. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler, by Cremer. Huge wicket. Sri Lanka's best player goes, and it's a soft one. Cremer floats it up to entice the drive. Mathews can't help himself, but plays it very lazily.

    Sri Lanka won't be helped in the fact that Asela is carrying an injury. He didn't field at all during the third innings. Hamstring issue, which means when he does come in, running will be difficult.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Graeme Cremer to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Williams. There is that crucial wicket! Mendis gets down to hoick it over mid wicket, but plays it half-heartedly. Perhaps too full to give it the full beans, and he ends up lobbing a catch up to wide mid on. Very risky shot against the turn, Mendis will be fuming with himself. Zimbabwe get the early strike.

    Another brilliant day of Test cricket. Zimbabwe will be happy with the three wickets taken in that session, but a lot of runs conceded. They still have their noses in front going into the final day, but Sri Lanka will still be confident of chasing this down too. A big partnership tomorrow will really put the nerves into the Zimbabwe bowlers. No pace bowled in this innings, and more spin likely to be opted for tomorrow. Whatever the result, it should be an absolute cracker.

Cremer isn't attacking enough to the new batsman and it costs them. Similar to how Chandimal got out, feeling for the ball with hard hands. The ball races off the outside edge to the third man fence.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Graeme Cremer to Dinesh Chandimal. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Masakadza. Cremer keeps producing the goods. Huge wicket as captain dismisses captain. Lovely leg break on off stump, the ball takes a healthy edge, and loops up to first slip for the catch. Played with hard hands, which didn't help Chandimal. Sri Lanka in a huge amount of trouble.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Sean Williams to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot, Left. Williams gets the much needed wicket! Karunaratne was looking in good touch, but misjudges this one. Offers no shot, the ball spits back in out the footmarks and comes back a mile. It goes through to clip the off stump and send the opener on his way. Probably the most spin Williams has ever got on a ball.

Dimuth shimmies down and drills it back to Cremer, who sticks out the left hand, but cannot hold onto the chance. Half an opportunity for the Zimbabwe captain there. He's disappointed with himself.

Beauty from Raza, he rags one past the outside edge. Wicketkeeper takes off the bails and appeals for the stumping. Third umpire is brought into action. Karunaratne is fine. Backfoot is platned behind the line.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Graeme Cremer. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to leg slip, by Karunaratne. Cremer cannot make his half century. A soft dismissal really. He just wants to paddle it round the corner, but the ball pops up off the top edge and loops up to a leg slip region. Karunaratne runs round from a conventional slip to hang on.

    Herath finishes with six, and was a lone man yet again in the Sri Lankan bowling attack. Zimbabwe set the hosts 398 to win, which will be a record chase in Tests in Sri Lanka. Four and a half sessions in the game left, so there is time to get the runs, but the visitors are the heavy favourites.

Lovely delivery from Herath. Pitching on leg and ripping past the outside edge. Too good for Mpofu as he is struck on the back leg, and there is an appeal. Not out given, and another review. Great call by the umpire, Mpofu is a tall man and was hit on the thigh, it was going over the top by a distance.

Mpofu is stuck on the crease, feels for the ball away from his body, and gets beaten past the edge. Dickwella whips off the bails, and the square leg sends the decision upstairs.

Tiripano goes back, tries to play the ball too square and is pinned right in front. A touch of spin back in took the ball past the inside edge, and it would've hit the top of middle. Sri Lanka will now start to think of their batting.

Chance missed.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Rangana Herath to Sikandar Raza. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed. Sikandar Raza goes. Herath gets another five for, so that is ten in the match. Flatter delivery that goes on with the arm, Raza goes for the reverse sweep, but it's not the right line to try that stroke. Went through with the shot to drag it from inside his front pad, but it skidded through to hit middle and leg. Mammoth knock.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Malcolm Waller. Off break back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Tharanga. That is a real, real, soft dismissal. Waller will be fuming as it was looking so easy out there for him. Not a good delivery from Dilruwan, dropped very short down leg. Waller can put it where he likes, but ends up picking out Tharanga who is sweeping on the boundary. A terrific innings, but he will be thinking he could have contributed so much more.

  • 75.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Sikandar Raza. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. One of his best shot in this innings. A textbook on-drive from Sikandar, presenting the full face and crunching it past the bowler for four.

Reverse Swing-In half volley, middle stump moves in front flick, hit pad to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal, appeal made for L.B.W. Very full from Kumara with a hint of reverse.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught (Sub). Lahiru Kumara to Peter Moor. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg. The change in bowling has worked, and so has the short ball tactic. The deep square leg fielder was brought in from the rope by about 20 yards, and Moor picks him out perfectly. The extra pace of Kumara does the trick, and Sri Lanka have the breakthrough. Not a great shot by the batsman.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Rangana Herath to Sean Williams. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed. Remarkable from Herath. The man is a genius. The previous delivery skidded on, and you just knew what was coming. A huge turner through the gate to hit the top of off again.

    Opening overs after lunch have been negioated well. Apart from the odd snorter, the pitch isn't playing too badly. Application needed by Williams and Raza.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Craig Ervine. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by Karunaratne. Zimbabwe go into lunch four down. Very poor stroke from Ervine. He dangles the bat out, prodding away from his body, and a healthy outside edge is taken. It goes quickly and low off the bat, but Dimuth snaffles it brilliantly.

    This match has moved along at an express pace in that session. Suddenly Sri Lanka are on top thanks to a manic 30 minute period before the break. A combination of accurate bowling and poor shots. Can Zimbabwe fightback after the break? Or will the wickets keep on tumbling?

  • 8.2 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Craig Ervine. Off break back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Dropped short and Ervine springs back to club it through mid wicket for four. Punished the loose ball.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Rangana Herath to Hamilton Masakadza. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad. Herath has three. It seems like he is going to get one every ball at the minute. The non-spinning delivery from the left armer, Masakadza gets down to sweep, and the ball sneaks underneath the bat to hit the back thigh. Hamilton reviews the decision. It is extremely close to the glove on the way through, but no conclusive evidence that it has brushed it. Onto ball tracking, which shows all three reds. Zimbabwe under unbelievable pressure here.

  • 7.1 - Rangana Herath to Hamilton Masakadza. Stock ball half volley, to leg down the track driving, well timed to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Chandimal.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Tarisai Musakanda. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, by Karunaratne. Horrendous shot from Musakanda but take nothing away from Herath. He is so clever with his variations in pace and flight. A flashy drive was attempted over mid on, but the batsman loses his shape and nicks through to first slip. Not the right call to go against the turn.

  • 5.3 - Rangana Herath to Tarisai Musakanda. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 5.2 - APPEAL! Rangana Herath to Tarisai Musakanda. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Chandimal, appeal made for L.B.W. Great bowling. Skids this one on with the arm, Musakanda thinks it will turn and is struck on the pad. Going down leg though, so not given.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Rangana Herath to Regis Chakabva. Stock length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, missed. He did damage in the first innings, and is likely to continue that today. Brilliant bowling from the veteran. Chakabva goes back to defend, but the ball rips past the outside edge to clip the top of off. Not much the batsman can do with deliveries like that. What a nut.

  • 2.6 - Suranga Lakmal to Regis Chakabva. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Kumara.

  • 2.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Regis Chakabva. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Chandimal.

  • 0.3 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Hamilton Masakadza. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Marvellous stroke from Hamilton to get Zimbabwe off to a lovely start. On top of the toes and crunched off the backfoot through the covers.

  • 0.1 - NEW BALL. Suranga Lakmal to Hamilton Masakadza. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Chandimal.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Graeme Cremer to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge. Five wicket haul for Cremer, his first in Test cricket. Gunaratne finally goes. He went back to block it out, but brings the bat down a little too late, and chops it back onto his stumps.

    Zimbabwe go into their second innings with a slender lead. They will take it though, and will have a tough period before the lunch break to add to that.

  • 102.2 - Graeme Cremer to Lahiru Kumara. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, inside edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Butt.

    Sri Lanka aren't really going aywhere. Everyone out in the field for Asela, and they are not taking the singles to risk Kumara getting out. Just the one off another over.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Graeme Cremer to Suranga Lakmal. Leg spinner half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, fielded by Cremer. Cremer has four. Delightful leg spin bowling. He gives it plenty of air outside leg stump, inviting Lakmal to hit through the legside, and he takes the bait. Tries to clip through mid wicket, it spins to take the leading edge, and it pops nicely back to the bowler.

  • 94.5 - FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Suranga Lakmal. Googly short, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Lakmal puts away the bad ball. The googly comes out very wrong from Cremer, and it sits up for Suranga to heave it over the legside for four.

No man protecting in the deep for the last ball, so Zimbabwe can have Lakmal on strike for the next over.

  • 93.5 - Sean Williams to Suranga Lakmal. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid on for 1 run, shy attempt by Butt.

  • 93.2 - FOUR! Sean Williams to Suranga Lakmal. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Streaky boundary for Lakmal. The ball rags away from the fast bowler, who pokes the bat out nervously. It comes off a thick edge through gully, and runs away to the third man fence.

  • wicket: OUT! Stumped. Sean Williams to Rangana Herath. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Chakabva. Herath goes this time though. He charges out the crease, trying to drive through the offside, but he ends up yorking himself. The ball slides underneath the bat through to the wicketkeeper, who fumbles it a few times before dislodging the bails. Rangana was so far down he couldn't get back in time, despite the dodgy keeping. Big wicket for Zimbabwe that.

  • 91.4 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Sean Williams to Rangana Herath. Stock ball full toss, outside off stump moves in front sweeping, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Given on the field! Herath goes for the trusty sweep shot, but cannot connect this time. A real slow delivery from Williams, meaning that Rangana is through the shot too early. Hits him on the front pad, but he shuffled across, and may have been hit outside the line of off stump. Review taken. No bat involved, umpire's call on impact, but missing off stump! Decision is reversed.

    Fascinating day of Test cricket. The match is delicately poised. Zimbabwe have fought hard in the field and will fancy bowling Sri Lanka out early tomorrow to get a first innings lead. The pitch offered a lot more for the spinners than it did on day one, and Cremer took advantage of that. The Zimbabwe captain led from the front and caused issues throughout the innings. Sri Lanka have battled hard also though. Upul Tharanga was fluent at the top, but it was a real grind for Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews. Advantage to the visitors after two days, but what will day three bring us?

Musakanda dives and collects one handed, then pops it off to Waller who was at extra cover. A quick through to the keeper leave Perera well short of his ground. Timely wicket for the visitors.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Graeme Cremer to Niroshan Dickwella. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, inside edge. Cremer strikes again. He's been the main man for Zimbabwe today and he has got another one. Not the best of shot selections. Dickwella goes back to a ball that wasn't that short, and tried to cut a straight delivery. It turns back in and takes the inside edge back onto the stumps. Sri Lanka suddenly in a bit of trouble.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Graeme Cremer to Dinesh Chandimal. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chakabva. Cremer with another pearler. Tough to see what Chandimal has done wrong there, just too good a delivery. A ripping leg spinner spits away from middle stump to flick the shoulder of the bat, and Chakabva grabs hold behind the stumps again. Lovely bowling, and another excellent catch.

    A good first hour for Zimbabwe in that session, but Sri Lanka have come back with this partnership of 68 runs. Definitely a better bowling effort, with some good plans in place to dismiss the batsmen. This final session will determine who is really on top in this Test.

Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by Musakanda, appeal made for L.B.W. Poor review from Zimbabwe. Tharanga tries to paddle it round the corner but doesn't get low enough to execute it well. He is struck on the front pad, but got his foot well outside the line of off stump. Impact outside the line, and it was missing the stumps as well.

  • 3.2 - FOUR! Donald Tiripano to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Shorter from Tiripano but it is still chopped away to the boundary. Tharanga goes right back in the crease to carve it through point.

    Perfect start to the morning for Sri Lanka. They have quickly wrapped up this Zimbabwe innings, and will come out with their response shortly.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Donald Tiripano. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, Gloved to slips, by Karunaratne. Five for Rangana! The reverse sweep finally doesn't work out too well. Perhaps not the right length to play the stroke, and it allowed the ball to spin and take extra bounce. It ballooned off the glove, and looped up to Dimuth at first slip. Just one more needed for Sri Lanka.

    What a superb day it has been for the visitors. After being four wickets down for just 70 runs, they were in danger of gets skittled out for a below par total. Craig Ervine has played a blinder though, with some great support of the lower-middle order. A quick thrash round tomorrow will set the game up for them beautifully. Sri Lanka were good in patches today. It is a pretty flat wicket, so they won't think they are out of the game yet, but they should have capitalised when Zimbabwe were under pressure. Will things turnaround in tomorrows play?

    That ends the first session of this Test. Sri Lanka are definitely on top after losing the toss and being asked to field. Batting friendly conditions Zimbabwe could not make use of them. Herath struck twice early on to open the door, and a few more loose shots mean that the visitors have lost four wickets before lunch. The one positive for them being how quickly they have scored their runs. Can there be a fightback in the afternoon session? Or will the hosts pile even more pressure on?

  • 3.5 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lahiru Kumara to Hamilton Masakadza. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Another leg before shout. Sri Lanka like the look of this too. It is turned down by the umpire though. There was a couple of noises and height seemed to be an issue. The ball nipped back in, but impact was made to the pad before hitting the bat. Ball tracking shows an umpire's call on impact, and hitting the stumps, so Sri Lanka lose their first review.
