Commentary

So Sri Lanka make it two out of two in the Champions Trophy and are virtually assured of moving into the main section of the tournament. It still has to be settled but Sri Lanka have found some useful practice in these early matches.

The hightlight of the match was the batting of Upul Tharanga and Kumar Sangakkara. Tharanga made his second century in two matches before the Sri Lankan seamers ran through the Zimbabwean top order.

The next match is tomorrow between West Indies and Bangladesh and you can catch live coverage here on Cricinfo. We hope you have enjoyed today's match and from me, Andrew McGlashan, and Jenny Thompson it's goodbye for now and thanks for following the match with us.

Malinga to Mupariwa, OUT, 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

Malinga to Mupariwa, FOUR runs, hold onto your hats folks, it's a boundary! A thick edge flies over the slips and down to third man

Malinga to Mupariwa, no run, tries to give himself room again, doesn't time the ball and goes to mid off

Fernando to Kamungozi, no run, draws the bat inside the line and the ball goes over the stumps

Fernando to Kamungozi, no run, all defence from Kamungozi who is still looking for his first international run
