Match Notes

  • Ebrahim suspended for one Test Match

    Zimbabwe batsman Dion Ebrahim was yesterday (16 May) suspended for one Test match for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his team's second Test match against Sri Lanka in Bulawayo

  • Sri Lanka complete victory by a massive margin

    Zimbabwe batted better in their second innings at Bulawayo, but could not prevent Sri Lanka sweeping the series 2-0, with a crushing victory by an innings and 254 runs

  • Ebrahim lands one-match ban

    Someone in the Zimbabwe Cricket Union must have broken quite a few mirrors in recent months, so wretched is its luck

  • Whatever this was, it wasn't Test cricket

    Ever since the standoff between the Zimbabwe Cricket Union and the rebel cricketers began, the kind of grotesquely one-sided day witnessed today had been on the cards

  • Sri Lanka show no mercy

    It was a day of records at Queens Sports Club, but it wasn't a contest
