View dismissal H Masakadza c †Chandimal b Kulasekara 4 21 23 0 0 17.39
4.5 This was coming. Kulasekara has been harassing Hamilton with his two-card trick. In and out. Out and in. This one shapes away from short of length, Hamilton had stepped out, trying to counter the swing, but this one kicks up and cuts away. He had a poke at it and the ball took the outside edge. Gone! 11/1
View dismissal BRM Taylor c Samaraweera b Fernando 19 45 22 3 0 86.36
9.3 What a stunner from Samaraweera at Gully. It was a short of length delivery outside off and Taylor just opened his bat-face and tried to guide it to third man. The ball flew low to right of Samaraweera who swooped forward to take it inches of the turf. And boy is he delirious or what?! Big wicket this. 29/2
View dismissal T Taibu c Kapugedera b Fernando 71 125 93 4 0 76.34
35.5 Almost like Taylor. Weak shot. It was a short delivery outside off and Taibu almost guided it straight, tapped it straight, to backward point. What a soft dismissal. What a fine knock, though. He led Zimbabwe's revival 139/4
View dismissal CR Ervine run out (Kapugedera/Mathews) 9 34 24 1 0 37.50
16.3 Mathews to Taibu, Ervine is run out It was pushed towards backward point and there is confusion between the two over the single. Taibu takes couple of steps down the track and Ervine rushes half-way. Taibu stops and turns. too late for Ervine who is unable to beat the throw which comes in to Angelo who breaks the stumps 49/3
View dismissal GA Lamb b BMAJ Mendis 37 86 65 1 0 56.92
41.4 Clatter! Jeevan has nailed Lamb. It landed on the middle stump line and turned. Lamb went for the big slog sweep but no wood on leather. It was leather on the wood. Gone! 163/6
View dismissal E Chigumbura* c Dilshan b BAW Mendis 10 14 18 0 0 55.55
40.1 Tickets please here! Mendis flicks it full on a length and Elton chips it tamely to covers. And Zimbabwe continue to wobble 155/5
View dismissal CK Coventry c Tharanga b BMAJ Mendis 18 11 12 3 0 150.00
43.3 But he is gone now! Again looking to be aggressive, he went down the track and heaved it straight to long-on! 200 looks a long way from here 178/7
View dismissal AG Cremer b Fernando 5 16 10 0 0 50.00
45.5 The death rattle! Full in length, fast, and tilts in to move past the waft, hits the pad and clips the stumps! 189/8
P Utseya not out 10 23 15 0 0 66.66
View dismissal RW Price c Dilshan b BAW Mendis 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
46.4 And he is gone now. Full delivery on the middle, the googly this time, Price shovels it straight to short midwicket. And then they were one. 190/9
View dismissal CB Mpofu run out (Dilshan/†Chandimal) 6 9 9 0 0 66.66
48.6 BAW Mendis to Utseya, They don't get to 200. It was pushed to right of short midwicket and they go for the run. Dilshan swoops in, fires a low through to Chandimal who breaks the stumps 199/10

25.5 Lamb to Dilshan, Dear o dear .. what have they done? Tharanga is run out He sacrificed for his captain. It was pushed to short third man and DIlshan runs across. Tharanga stops after couple of steps but Dilshan keeps running. And Tharanga decides to sacrifice himself and crosses over. Hmmm. Dilshan seems to angry with himself. 160/1
