Sri Lanka tour of Zimbabwe, 2008/09 / Commentary

Sri Lanka in Zimbabwe ODI Series - 5th ODI

Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 19 runs

Welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of the fifth ODI between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka being played in Harare. The home team bowled well in the previous game, making Sri Lanka struggle during their run-chase, but their batting has failed to measure up to Mendis' spin.

There's no chance of rain in Harare today, so we should get a full game.

Zimbabwe have won the toss and opted to bowl. The hosts are playing an unchanged team.

For Sri Lanka, Mahela Udawatte, Thilan Thushara and Dhammika Prasad make way for Thilina Kandambi, Nuwan Kulasekara, and Muttiah Muralitharan.

We are still a few minutes away from the start, so you can read Cricinfo's preview to the game in the meantime.

Upul Tharanga and Mahela Jayawardene will open. Ed Rainsford to bowl for Zimbabwe.

Shyam: "240 is too farfetched, don't you think? Lanka will struggle to make 150, with their misfiring batting outfit."

I said they'll do good to get to 240, but if they continue to bat the way they have in this match so far, 150 may well be a realistic possibility

Gajan: "What is the main reason for this batting performance? Is this pitch a mine-field? SL batting that bad??? Perhaps the bowling is solid? Combination of all three?"

The pitch is slow and keeping low, but is not quite a minefield. The Sri Lankans have struggled to get a move-on and have shown little aggression in their innings, getting bogged down at the loss of each wicket and staying rooted at one end without rotating the strike too often. The Zimbabweans have constantly kept the pressure, fielded brilliantly, and used the pitch to their advantage.

This is now Sri Lanka's lowest score against Zimbabwe. Their previous worst being 153 in Sharjah in 1997, where they lost by 50 runs

Zimbabwe have bowled superbly to restrict Sri Lanka to 152, which will not be too easy to chase on a track that has played slow and kept low. The spinners did the trick for the home team, conceding just 87 runs between them in the space of 34 overs, and bagging three wickets in the process. But Zimbabwe cannot afford to get complacent here as Mendis and Murali may well prove to be a handful on this pitch. 152 is by no means a match-winning score, but on this track, and against a struggling Zimbabwean batting line-up, it is certainly a challenging one
