0.5 to J Gumbie, Early strike for Sri Lanka! And the plan works for them. Zimbabwe had only lost one wicket in the first ten overs in the competition up until now. Madushanka and Sri Lanka's plan was always to have Gumbie dismissed with an inswinging one. They had a square leg and short midwicket in place. Madushanka bowls it full on middle and leg with the inswing and asks him to flick. Gumbie does it straight to Nissanka at short midwicket to depart for a five-ball duck. Lowest opening stand in this tournament for Zimbabwe.. 2/1
2.1 to W Madhevere, Madushanka gets two and Madhevere departs! Has he overstepped though? The TV umpire will have a check. Madushanka's first ball to Madhevere was a full and inswinging yorker. He is ready for another full ball. But Madushanka digs it in and takes the batter by surprise. Madhevere is not in a good position to pull and yet plays a cross-batted shot. Only manages a top edge towards Shanaka at mid-on. The foot is fine and Madhevere has to walk back.. 8/2
6.1 to CR Ervine, Madushanka has his third in the powerplay! He bowls it full just outside off, enticing the poke from the batter. Ervine cannot resist and does so but gets a nick that is clearly audible. Mendis pouches it safely with a dive. Huge blow for Zimbabwe as Ervine departs.. 30/3
19.4 to Sikandar Raza, That's a screamer! This is a massive breakthrough as Raza leans back, clears his front leg and goes for the pull but he didn't get all of it. Madushanka pockets the catch low down and just when this partnership started to look threatening, Raza has thrown it away. He stands there in disbelief, despondent by his shot. There wasn't much pace and bounce to work with and that is a reason why he didn't get the distance. 98/4
22.5 to SC Williams, Wrecked the stumps! Superb bowling change and Theekshana has done the damage with a crackerjack! Tossed up on a length and spins away just enough from middle to sneak though his bat. He goes airborne, vicious fist-pump and a loud scream. Massive breakthrough for Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe needed him to anchor this innings and now they find themselves in a rut!. 127/5
24.4 to RP Burl, Theekshana is on fire! Once again the ball rips through the stumps, he tries to get behind the line, bringing his bat down but is undone by the sharp turn and pinpoint accuracy of Theekshana! Misjudged the flight and length of the delivery. The ball gripped the surface, spun sharply, and darted towards the stumps, looks similar to Sean William's dismissal. 130/6
28.1 to LM Jongwe, Another one bites the dust! That looked stone dead but Zimbabwe decide to send it upstairs. No bat involved as he tried to sweep, pitched in line, impact in line and wickets hitting. He was just hoping against hope but it looked pinned in front in real time. The ball struck him on the front pad, low and in line with the stumps. The fielders erupted in a collective appeal and it was a pretty straightforward decision for the umpire as he didn't take long to raise the finger.. 144/7
32.2 to B Muzarabani, Bowler 'im! Zimbabwe have been castled for 165 and Theekshana finishes with a four-for. Bowls it on a fullish length in line of the stumps, Muzarabani looks to go big but misses it completely.. 165/10
31.2 to B Evans, Pathirana pins him in front but Evans reviews! Spears it full and straight on middle and leg, Evans, deep in his crease, misses the flick. Clipping the leg stump as per Hawk-Eye and that is enough for Sri Lanka on this occasion. Finally, Pathirana is on the board.. 164/8
31.5 to R Ngarava, Knocked him over! Two in the over for slinga Pathirana. Arrows it full and straight on middle and leg, was fuller than good length. Ngarava looks to hit it aerially over the bowler's head but only made contact with thin air.. 164/9

Fall of wickets: 1-103 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 19.5 ov) • DRS
19.5 to FDM Karunaratne, Gets the big fish! Dug in short into the body, cramped him for room and he couldn't get on top of the bounce, Dimuth goes for the pull looking a bit ungainly and it's a regulation catch for Evans at deep fine leg tracks the ball from the bat, through the air, towards him and then into his hand. Is it too little too late for Zimbabwe?. 103/1
