Player Of The Match

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
