    20.2 lands it outside off and gets it to come in with the angle, he is a little lazy on the forward defense and hence fails to get his bat behind the line of the ball, he's hit in line with the offstump, another bowling change works and it's the captain himself 97/5
    8.4 loose shot and Jayasuriya is very frustrated with himself, he chases a wide delivery swinging away and the ball clips the toe of his bat and travels to Masakadza at first slip who takes it over his head, terrible shot after hitting him for six 51/1
    13.4 the bowling change works! Absolutely plumb, it lands on a good length on middle and off and straightens, he shapes to whips it to the on side but the ball clips the flap of the back pad, very easy decision 73/2
    15.4 Jayawardene's miserable run against Zimbabwe continues, the ball lands just a shade outside off and forces him to play at it, he gets a thick outside edge and Taibu dives low to his right and pouches it comfortably 78/3
    17.5 It's a double-strike for Rainsford, he gets it to come back in off the pitch and Kapugedera gets a half stride forward to defend, he stands outside his crease but the ball does enough to hit him in line with the stumps, Enamul Haque Moni raises the finger 89/4
    41.2 Mubarak takes his chances soon after taking the Powerplay, he gives him the charge and scoops it high over mid-on but fails to get the desired elevation to clear the boundary and Williams takes it easily and falls to his right after taking the catch 166/6

    6.3 funny old shot by Masakadza, he gets his front pad across the stumps, bends his knee and tries to slog him across the line but the ball cuts back in and hits him in line with the stumps, Doctrove raises the finger 16/2
    4.6 he adjusts his line to the offstump and gets an immediate reward, the ball cuts back in off a good length and goes through the gate between bat and pad and crashes on to the middle and offstumps, Sibanda goes for the off drive but fails to cover the line 15/1
    18.2 terrible shot really, he commits to the front foot and tries to slog him across the line very early, the ball shoots through and hits the middle and leg stumps 53/5
    10.4 timber! Kulasekara gets another one to cut back in sharply off the pitch, Taibu stays rooted to the crease, fails to cover the line, gets a thick inside edge and looks back to see his leg stump flattened 27/3
    16.4 gets forward and pushes it back to the bowler 47/4
    21.2 Jayawardene hangs on to it brilliantly, he pokes out and edges a delivery whuch seams away, Jayawardene stations himself at wide first slip and he flings himself to his right and pulls it off one-handed 70/6
    23.1 'It was that easy guys' -that's what Jayawardene appears to gesture to the fielders as he takes an easy catch at first slip, Murali delivers from over the wicket and Dabengwa tamely fishes at it and fails to cover the turn 73/7
    27.5 comes round the wicket and delivers the doosra, the turn beats the outside edge and he lunges forward but fails to drag his foot back in time, Sangakkara is sharp enough to whip off the bails in a flash 80/9
    24.6 and Mendis is the fastest to 50 wickets in ODIs! Price gives him the charge but is beaten all ends up to a delivery which is pitched a fraction short and straightens, Sangakkara effects one of the easiest stumpings 78/8
    28.2 it's all over, Mupariwa gets on his knee early to slog him away but he fails to get the desired elevation and finds Tharanga at deep midwicket, easy take and Zimbabwe are bowled out for less than 100 for the 4th time against Sri Lanka 80/10
