4.2 to Sikandar Raza, poor shot from Raza and Zimbabwe are unravelling here. That was just short of good length and swinging in to Raza who flicks. He is in no control of it and plays it uppishly, that too, straight into the hands of short midwicket who, it seems, was there precisely for that reason. 14/3
27.4 to PJ Moor, absolutely plumb! That should have been Kulasekara's length from the start. Full and straight, gets juuust enough nip back in. Pitches on off, Moor brings his bat down in line but the ball jags back in just enough to beat the inside edge. Moor's feet were nowhere, neither forward not back. Ended up rooted in the crease and struck Moor in front of middle and leg. Easy decision for umpire Shamsuddin. A nice cameo but Zimbabwe needed more.. 105/7
3.2 to BB Chari, edged and taken. It's a lovely delivery. Good length and angling in. Chari comes forward and pushes but the ball straightens before moving away late to brush the outside edge and go towards the cordon where second slip dives to his left, in front of first slip, to take a sharp catch. 13/1
3.4 to CR Ervine, superbly done by Lakmal. Fires a full ball inviting the batsman to come forward and drive. It was just at the perfect width to entice the drive and Ervine falls for the bait. Comes forward and lazily pushes at a ball he perhaps should have left alone and duly pays the price by sending through a healthy outside edge that is snaffled comfortably by second slip. 13/2
10.6 to SC Williams, he's thrown it away! Again misread the delivery. Pathirana tosses it up but takes it away from the left-hander. There isn't much spin on the delivery but Williams backs away to make room as he gives the bowler the charge, taking himself further away from the ball. Doesn't make any contact and the wicketkeeper tidies up and takes the bails off. So Pathirana ends up with a wicket in his first over and the Williams drop doesn't prove to be costly. 29/4
15.4 to CJ Chibhabha, appeal for lbw and given! It was a good length ball that was angled in on the pads. Chibhabha looks to get his front leg across and flick it away to the leg side. But the ball straightens just a little and strikes the batsman on the pad. Sri Lanka go up in appeal and umpire Shamshuddin raises his finger. Chibhabha goes upstairs to review it, but that always looked close though it was angled in. Replays show that the ball would have hit a fair chunk of the leg stump and the on-field decision stays. Half the Zimbabwe side dismissed now. 46/5
17.1 to E Chigumbura, edged and gone. Beautiful length ball that is angled in and straightens late to take the outside edge of Chigumbura who nervously prods forward. There was some extra bounce as well on that ball. 50/6
37.6 to DT Tiripano, Tiripano holes out. A big hit lands in Kulasekara's bread basket at long-on. A fuller than good length on middle, Tiripano looked to hit this more over midwicket but the ball got onto him quicker than he anticipated, resulting in the ball hitting the bat higher up. Goes straight up and easily taken by Kulasekara running in a few feet. 136/8
39.2 to CT Mumba, big appeal. That looked very close. And Sri Lanka review. Whatever happens, that's a good review. Full on off, the ball deviates back in sharply. Goes past the inside edge and hits Mumba in front of middle. Misses the bat by some distance. There was hardly an appeal from the bowler. Is there too much deviation off the track? Sri Lanka need three reds for the wicket. Umpire Shamsuddin said no quite quickly. Yes, all three reds. Hitting a good chunk of the leg stump. Excellent review from Sri Lanka. It was wicketkeeper Dickwella that was persistent on the review. Mumba just prodded at that offcutter but didn't account for the spin. A tail-ender's shot, missed the line.. 139/9
41.3 to T Panyangara, a wild slog and Zimbabwe are all out. This is the seam-up delivery outside off, Panyangara wants to heave over midwicket but the ball is quick and hurries Panyangara who gets to the ball rather late. The ball skews off the outside half and lobs straight up. The cover fielder runs to his left and takes an easy catch in front of his chest.. 154/10

Fall of wickets: 1-56 (Kusal Perera, 10.2 ov), 2-140 (Niroshan Dickwella, 22.2 ov)
22.2 to N Dickwella, and taken! Dickwella doesn't get fifty. Short of a length on off or just outside off. Dickwella shimmies down, plays a cross-bat hoick, takes a thick leading edge which flies down to third man. The fielder runs in and gets underneath the ball with a slide and takes a chest-high catch on the ground.. 140/2
10.2 to MDKJ Perera, Sikandar Raza takes a brilliant catch at deep square leg. It was a short ball and asking to be hit. Perera muscles a pull shot and swivels around but fails to keep it along the ground. The ball seems to be heading to the deep square leg boundary, but Raza who was just in front of square runs a few inches to his left and plucks a superb catch. 56/1
