  Sri Lanka innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga b Matsikenyeri 110 158 130 13 1 84.61
38.3 goes for a big swing through the leg side, but he was getting tired and missed the ball by a fair distance as it crashes into the stumps. The end of another fine innings from the left-hander who has built a platform from which the rest of the Sri Lankan batsmen can really have a dip in the closing overs.& 214/3
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya run out (Chigumbura) 9 39 15 0 0 60.00
8.1 Ireland to Tharanga, absolutely brilliant fielding from Chigumbura after Jayasuriya went walk about at the non-striker's end. That wicket came from nowhere, but Jayasuriya was backing up too far and the Zimbabweans get their reward for some enthusiastic fielding. Jayasuriya walks off shaking his head 38/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Taylor b Ireland 4 14 10 0 0 40.00
10.5 a short, wide ball brings another breakthrough for Zimbabwe as Jayawardene chases the delivery from Ireland and sends a thin edge through to Taylor. It would probably have been called a wide and Jayawardene can hardly believe what he's done but that's a huge wicket 49/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Matsikenyeri b Chibhabha 80 110 86 7 0 93.02
39.4 tries to clear long off but doesn't get hold of the lofted drive and is comfortably held by Matsikenyeri. An impressive innings from Sangakkara but now Sri Lanka have two new batsmen in the middle so maybe there's a chance for the Zimbabweans to keep the total down 219/4
MS Atapattu not out 33 50 30 2 0 110.00
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Kamungozi b Utseya 6 11 6 0 0 100.00
42.1 a bit of a soft dismissal. The batsman tried to paddle that, got a bit of a top edge and that's straight down's Kamungozi's throat at square leg, and the fielder makes no mistake. That's another blip in Sri Lanka's progress 235/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof lbw b Kamungozi 13 16 18 1 0 72.22
46.4 that was a huge shout and a deserved wicket; the ball was nicely flighted and that pitched in line, turned a touch and that's the first wicket of the day for Kamungozi, his third in all. 259/6
View dismissal M Muralitharan c Matsikenyeri b Kamungozi 10 6 6 2 0 166.66
48.2 that's clubbed off the bottom of the bat straight down long-off's throat and Muralitharan's cameo (10 from six balls) comes to an end 273/7

  Zimbabwe innings (target: 286 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal TV Mufambisi c Jayawardene b Malinga 5 10 9 1 0 55.55
2.1 and another one goes. Huge waft away from his body against a delivery that bounces and Mufambisi sends a high edge flying towards Jayawardene at second slip, who this time makes no mistake and pouches it with two hands above his head. Sadly, it's a familiar tale for Zimbabwe but this is impressive bowling from Malinga 7/2
View dismissal HP Rinke b Perera 1 7 3 0 0 33.33
1.5 that was very much on the cards. Perera pitches up and finds a hint of inswing, a loose drive from Rinke takes the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. 7/1
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c Dilshan b Malinga 4 25 12 0 0 33.33
6.5 outstanding bowling from Malinga, the pace was too much for Chibhabha as he is caught on the crease and sends a thick edge towards third slip where Dilshan holds a sharp chance down by his ankles. Zimbabwe's top order again being blown away. 23/3
View dismissal H Masakadza c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 30 86 56 5 0 53.57
19.2 squared up by that one which was just leaving him and he got an edge on it which was cleanly taken with two hands by Sangakkara, away to his right. And that's a slow walk off for the batsman 86/5
View dismissal BRM Taylor b Fernando 30 59 40 4 0 75.00
18.5 cleaned up with a pearler that came back in and went right through the gate, taking middle and off stumps. Another good fight from Taylor, with a very promising innings, comes to an end 86/4
View dismissal S Matsikenyeri c Jayasuriya b Fernando 2 26 11 0 0 18.18
22.6 you could see that wicket coming a mile off and it's Matsikenyeri who falls to the short ball as he can't get out of the way, the ball takes the glove and flies behind the wicket. Sangakkara tries to jump for it but Jayasuriya runs round and grabs a comfortable chance as the end gets closer for Zimbabwe 107/7
View dismissal E Chigumbura run out (Maharoof/Perera/†Sangakkara) 2 3 2 0 0 100.00
19.4 from Maharoof, launched into that one with positive intent but that's another wicket, with a run-out. Kamikaze call for a second run there and the batsman had no chance of getting back in as the bowler picked up the relay and threw it to Sangakkara who took the stumps cleanly 89/6
View dismissal P Utseya* c Jayawardene b Muralitharan 20 60 45 3 0 44.44
35.4 edged and gone! Muralitharan gets a wicket with a doosra, with a simple feather straight to the welcoming hands of first slip. "Give Murali a stationary target long enough..." deadpans Jeff Dujon, and he couldn't be more right. 126/8
View dismissal T Mupariwa b Malinga 20 68 67 2 0 29.85
42.3 finally Malinga gets one straight and Mupariwa misses a wild heave to bring this match to an end. The result has been known for much of Zimbabwe's innings but the Sri Lankan bowlers will be pleased with their run out, although there were a few too many extras once again 141/10
View dismissal AJ Ireland c †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 0 30 8 0 0 0.00
39.2 another doosra and that's comprehensively beaten the batsman who was looking for the off-break, but it went the other way, just rubbing the outside edge and Sangakkara does the rest 134/9
