BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Tendai Chatara703515.00202010
40.4 to KIC Asalanka, Full, well outside off and driven right into the arms of point. A subdued appeal and Asalanka walks off. Chatara is now the quickest ever to reach a hundred ODI wickets for Zimbabwe! Third umpire is checking for a bump-ball, with the soft signal being out. Replays show it's a correct dismissal. 193/6
Blessing Muzarabani1006316.30226020
47.4 to RTM Mendis, Oh dear! It's full, outside off and Mendis walks across to attempt a scoop behind the wicket but he can only clip it onto the leg stump. The umpire's go upstairs, with a doubt over hit-wicket, but it's clearly not that.. 241/7
Richard Ngarava914625.11286000
38.4 to MD Shanaka, And it's taken at backward point! What a take by Raza! This was short, wide and cut hard by Shanaka. It flies to Raza, who does extremely well to hold on to this at chest height with the force of the shot briefly taking him off his feet.. 183/5
48.5 to PVD Chameera, Slower, full-toss just outside off, and he can only mistime a cover drive straight to mid-off. 247/8
Wellington Masakadza1004214.20221000
17.2 to BKG Mendis, OUT! Masakadza tosses it up a bit and Mendis lofts it straight to long-off. A reckless shot - there was no need for it.. 80/1
Ryan Burl602614.33172000
23.1 to PHKD Mendis, Tossed up, at the stumps and he digs it out straight to Burl, who collects the catch. There's an appeal from the keeper for the catch, with not-out being the soft-signal. We go upstairs to check if it was a bump ball...Replays show it's off the toe-end, not taking a bounce off the ground... it's OUT! Mendis is gone as well!. 107/3
Sikandar Raza603305.50173001
Sean Williams20613.0060000
30.6 to LD Chandimal, Big appeal, and it's reviewed! Chandimal goes for the sweep, and tries to take this from outside off but gets struck on the pads. Original decision was not out. And that's a great review! Impact is in line and this is crashing into middle. Chandimal has to go and Williams has delivered the breakthrough!. 149/4

Dushmantha Chameera512024.00182000
2.2 to RW Chakabva, Back of a length, in the channel outside off, and Chakabva can only attempt a temptative push at it. The ball takes the outside edge and dies on it's way towards first slip, with Asalanka taking an excellent forward diving catch!. 3/1
2.3 to CR Ervine, Disaster for Zimbabwe. Chameera with another beauty across the left hander, in the channel and Ervine edges it, with Mendis diving across front slip to take an excellent catch!. 3/2
Maheesh Theekshana611011.66280000
7.2 to SC Williams, A beauty! Tossed up by Theekshana and Williams attempts a front foot defence, playing for the turn, but the ball sneaks into the gap between bat and pad and clips the stumps! Another huge wicket for Sri Lanka!. 20/3
Jeffrey Vandersay7.421041.30370000
10.2 to T Kaitano, Another beauty! Mendis appeals once more, the umpires go upstairs! Tossed up and tempts Kaitano into a cover drive, but the ball spins away and Mendis collects and whips off the bails in one smooth motion. Replays show it's very tight, Kaitano's trailing leg is only juuust inside the crease, and may be in the air. It's OUT! Another huge wicket for Sri Lanka - excellent work from Mendis and Vandersay, as Kaitano trudges off, head down.. 30/4
18.3 to B Muzarabani, Traps him in front! But he's reviewed it straight away. This pitches on the stumps, goes on with the arm, and looks to have hit him in front of middle and leg...and yes, it's crashing into leg stump!. 52/8
24.2 to RP Burl, And Vandersay has another! This looks absolutely plumb in front. Burl stays back to one he really shouldn't have. It's on a length and fizzes through off the surface. Burl reviews...just cos. And it confirms the bad news.. 70/9
24.4 to R Ngarava, And Sri Lanka take the series 2-1! This is tossed up and Ngarava goes for the big on drive, but he can't get the connection he wants and it flies straight to short midwicket, who takes a good catch at chest height.. 70/10
Chamika Karunaratne20412.0090010
11.1 to Sikandar Raza, Another wicket! Length, well outside off and Raza mistimes it, driving it into the air straight to cover! . 31/5
Ramesh Mendis402626.50143030
15.5 to M Shumba, And he's gone! This is a poor ball, full and down the leg side. Shumba goes for the sweep, gets a great connection on it as well, but unfortunately it's straight down the throat of deep backward square leg.. 41/6
17.1 to WP Masakadza, Bowled him! This one is tossed up on a length, and Wellington is drawn forward looking to work this through midwicket, but he doesn't get to the pitch off the ball as it goes on with the arm and through the gap between bat and pad. Zimbabwe folding pretty quick here.. 48/7
