Last over coming up. Mupariwa has the honours

49.1

Mupariwa to Thushara, 1 run, fires it on the blockhole outside off and he drags it away to long-on

49.2

Mupariwa to Mathews, 1 run, full outside off and he digs it out to the offside

49.3

Mupariwa to Thushara, no run, full and swings back in, he tries to slog it away but the ball just misses the offstump

49.4

Mupariwa to Thushara, no run, tries to mow it away again to the on side but gets a thick edge on to his body

49.5

Mupariwa to Thushara, 1 run, makes room and carves it down to long-on

49.6

Mupariwa to Mathews, 1 run, makes a bit of room and scoops a full ball down to long-off

So SL finish on 210 for 6. It was a workmanlike fifty by Angelo Mathews. The conditions weren't easy but he hung on. He was supported by Mubarak and Tharanga. Sri Lanka tried to force the pace in the 3rd powerplay but managed only 22.

Zimbabwe will be satisfied with this but the big challenge of Mendis awaits. Join us in 35 minutes for the chase.
