Donald Tiripano to Dimuth Karunaratne. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Masvaure. Sri Lanka win by ten wickets! They only just had enough time to get there, as the light was starting to fade in Harare, and there was only 10 overs left scheduled in the day. Zimbabwe fought hard all the way, but they weren't quite good enough on this final day to grind out the draw. It was a fantastic Test Match. Angelo Mathews will take most of the headlines for his maiden double century, but there were brilliant individual performances across both sides. So the visitors go 1-0 up in the series with one to play. Join us again on Monday for the next game.

FOUR! Victor Nyauchi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Nyauchi slides onto the pads, and Karunaratne tucks this away very nicely. The timing was sublime, and the ball teases the fielder all the way to the rope.

OUT! Caught (Sub). Suranga Lakmal to Victor Nyauchi. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to point. A tame end to the innings. The short ball was causing problems to Nyauchi and it seemed to be a matter of time before he was dismissed. 358 will be the total for Zimbabwe and that is a superb effort. They might have wanted more after the top three all scored fifties but Sri Lanka fought back very well today to restrict them.Should be some movement with the new ball so if they put it in the right areas a couple of wickets could fall tonight.

Suranga Lakmal to Donald Tiripano. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis. Long session in the field but Sri Lankan will be happy with their efforts in the afternoon. Four big wickets which means just the one more scalp and they will be the ones having a chance to bat on this flat deck. Tiripano might still have something to say about that as he has looked to add some quick runs recently along with the debutant Nyauchi.

OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Ainsley Ndlovu. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed to short leg, by Mendis. What a stunning grab. Smashed from Ndlovu off his pads and he must have thought it was four as soon as he connected. Instead Kusal Mendis has got his body in the way and somehow managed to hang on. Outstanding work and even his own team can't believe it.

OUT! Caught. Lasith Embuldeniya to Regis Chakabva. Stock length ball, off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Mathews. Wickets are falling just when Zimbabwe needed to settle down and build a partnership. Maybe a bit too aggressive and the bat turned in the hand which took all the power off the shot as well as any elevation. Lot of pressure on Raza

Lahiru Kumara to Brendan Taylor. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Kumara. A record breaking day yesterday for the hosts in which it was the first time the top three all made fifties. The platform has been built for them to kick on and it is down to their experienced players in the middle-order to do just that. Wasn't the highest scoring day of Test cricket we have seen but that was down to some tight bowling by the Sri Lankans. This morning is definitely going to be key with the new ball relatively new and if Zimbabwe can get through that the runs are there for the taking.

The players and fans have had to wait for Test cricket to come back home for quite some time and the players made sure to put on a show. An opening partnership of 96 between Prince Masvuare and Kevin Kasuza, who both scored fifties, before Craig Ervine carried on the good work with a half-century of his own.Solid start but tomorrow they need to keep going and not let it slip. See you at the same time.

OUT! Caught. Lasith Embuldeniya to Prince Masvaure. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Karunaratne. Finally Sri Lanka get the breakthrough. Use of the feet from Prince Masvaure but he wasn't able to either keep the ball on the floor or go over mid off. Superb low catch by the captain moving to his left and that should lift the visitors.

After being out of international cricket for so long the crowds will be thrilled to see the Chevrons back on home soil hosting a Test. The pitch prepared looks a beauty and no surprise at the toss that the new Zimbabwe captain, Sean Williams, decides to bat first. Overcast conditions overhead though so the openers will have to get through a tough burst up front.Three debutants for Zimbabwe, Kevin Kasuza, Ainsley Ndlovu and Victor Nyauchi. Sri Lanka on the other hand have picked a very strong line-up with a pace attack which consists of Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara and Kasun Rajitha.

OUT! L.B.W. Sean Williams to Kasun Rajitha. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. Rajitha attempts to sweep from the stumps, there isn't any turn, but he gets pinned on the back leg in front of all three. That is stone dead. Williams gets his second wicket.Sri Lanka declare with an hour to go in the day and with a lead of 157. Zimbabwe have a tricky 17 over period to get through to close. The pitch is still flat, but it becomes a mental game after so long in the fielder. Can they keep their concentration and prevent the visitors going 1-0 up?

Sikandar Raza to Angelo Mathews. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Butt. That ends the afternoon session on day four. It's the same story that it has been over the last couple of days. Sri Lanka lose one wicket, and add close to one hundred runs to their total. Niroshan Dickwella notched up a fifty, before getting trapped in front by Sikandar Raza. Angelo Mathews is still going strong in his marathon knock, and doesn't look like giving it away any time soon. The lead is at 108, and the visitors will want a few more before they think about sending Zimbabwe back into bat. Hopefully we have an exciting evening session to come.

The morning session has been a carbon copy of the whole of day three. One wicket for Zimbabwe to cheer about, but other than that, Sri Lanka have made steady progress. The hosts will be happy to keep the scoring rate low, but the visitors have now gone into a lead. Dhananjaya de Silva seemed like he wanted to be aggressive, but that caused his downfall as he chipped one to mid on. Angelo Mathews got through to his tenth Test hundred, and is still going strong. Will Sri Lanka go hard in the afternoon?

Ainsley Ndlovu to Angelo Mathews. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for 1 run, mis-fielded by Williams, shy attempt by Williams. Mathews would've been gone had that hit. Williams fumbles it, they try and run on the mistake, and he nearly gifts his wicket away. When he attempts to slide the bat in, it gets stuck in the pitch and he loses it. Out by a distance if the stumps were rattled.

OUT! Caught. Victor Nyauchi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed to mid on, by Masvaure. Nyauchi gets his third! Zimbabwe strike for the first time this morning. Dhananjaya clearly had it in his mind to press on the gas, but he pays the price for it. He walks down, wants to loft it over the top, but gets it right off the toe end of the bat. The ball lobs up to mid on, and Masvaure makes no mistake.

Runs : 5 Bowler: Sean Williams Wickets : 0
Welcome to Day 4 of the first Test between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. Remarkably, it is still only the second innings of the game. That shows the nature of the wicket in Harare. The pitch is lifeless, and it is tough to score quickly. The visitors probably have the best chance of churning out a victory from here. They will have to bat most of today and make a big enough lead to worry the hosts into a batting collapse on the final day. It is looking likely to peter out into a draw, but Test cricket can always deliver some surprise results at unexpected times.

Sean Williams to Angelo Mathews. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Ervine. That's stumps on day three. Sri Lanka have had a good day with the bat. 253 runs added, and just the three wickets lost. Kusal Mendis struck a well-made 80, but Angelo Mathews stands out with his unbeaten 92. He will be back in the morning to try and convert that into a century, alongside Dhananjaya de Silva, who's made 42 himself. Zimbabwe tried hard all day, and bowled fairly well given the conditions. A few quick wickets tomorrow and they will feel like they are back in the contest. Sri Lanka are only 63 runs behind now, and will be hoping to gain a big lead tomorrow.

Victor Nyauchi to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Masvaure. That will be tea. A near identical session to the morning. Sri Lanka have added 81 runs, and have lost one more wicket. Kusal Mendis was looking in good touch, before he played a loose drive and nicked off to first slip. Angelo Mathews is still at the crease on 51. The Zimbabwe bowlers will no doubt be getting more tired as we head into the back end of the day, so what will happen in the evening session?

OUT! Caught. Victor Nyauchi to Kusal Mendis. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Taylor. Out of nowhere, Nyauchi strikes again! It's a poor stroke from Mendis. He was playing a long way away from the body, with not much conviction, and gets a healthy edge through to first slip. A hint of movement off the surface drew the edge, and Taylor made no mistake with the catch. It was a good knock up until then, and Mendis will miss out on another Test century. Important breakthrough for the home side.

An interesting session this morning. Sri Lanka have added 82 runs to reduce the deficit to 234 runs. Kusal Mendis has gone nicely, and remains unbeaten on 43. Zimbabwe picked up the one wicket in the morning, as Karunaratne chipped one into short mid wicket's hands to give Nyauchi his first Test wicket. The hosts have done reasonably well, beating the bat and drawing a few edges, but the visitors have looked pretty comfortable. What will the afternoon session bring us?

APPEAL! Victor Nyauchi to Kusal Mendis. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. A huge shout for leg before here, as Nyauchi gets one to jag back off the deck. Mendis is struck high on the back leg, and it was probably outside the line of off stump as well. Correct call by the umpire.

OUT! Caught. Victor Nyauchi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, to short mid wicket, by Ndlovu. Zimbabwe get their first of the morning! It's a pretty soft way to go for the Sri Lankan captain. He clips it off the toes, head falling over slightly, and he cannot keep it down. There's a short mid wicket in place, and Ndlovu snaps up the chance inches from the turf. A maiden Test wicket for Nyauchi. Superb stuff.

Welcome to Day 3 at Harare Sports Club. The hosts have a slight upper hand in the current situation. They took their time doing it, but managed to muster up a decent first innings total of 358, before nipping out a wicket late last night. The pitch is still pretty flat, though. There is not much in it for the seamers or spinners, but it is likely to get more difficult for the batsmen as the game progresses. No doubt we will have another intriguing day of Test cricket ahead of us.

Donald Tiripano to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Kasuza. Too dark and the umpires are taking the players off. Great day of Test cricket all round. Batsmen had to grind it out as the bowlers found their line and lengths making scoring difficult. Still Zimbabwe managed to pile on 358 before being dismissed in the final session.It was then over to the Sri Lankan openers who started off on the front foot with a 32 run partnership before Donald Tiripano broke through with his first delivery.Pretty even then as we head towards day three with all results in play. Join us at the same time tomorrow.

OUT! Bowled. Lahiru Kumara to Kyle Jarvis. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to. The off stump goes cartwheeling out the ground. Sri Lanka are ecstatic. It's a wonderful delivery to a lower order batsman. Jarvis is stuck on the crease, waves the bat out, and doesn't expect the inward movement. A decent amount of seam back in, and it goes straight through the gate to give the visitors their eighth wicket.

OUT! L.B.W. Lahiru Kumara to Donald Tiripano. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. Kumara gets through the defences to smash the pads of Tiripano, and up goes the finger! A brave innings from the lower order batsman. A little shape back into him, even further movement back off the surface, and the ball passes the inside edge to hit the knee. Looked like that was going on to hit the top of leg stump, so a fair enough decision.

Sri Lanka took another three wickets in that session, and have made huge strides towards going 1-0 up in the series. Taylor and Williams went early on to the seamers, before Raza fell to Embuldeniya after sticking around for a while. Only 32 runs scored in that session, which has been a huge problem for Zimbabwe. They still trail by five runs, which means they will have to survive even longer in the evening. Will the tail be able to survive the remaining 34 overs?

APPEAL! Lasith Embuldeniya to Donald Tiripano. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Fernando, appeal made for L.B.W. A shout for leg before from Sri Lanka, but there's a smile from the umpire before he shakes his head. The ball would've crashed into the middle of middle, but it was pitching outside leg stump. Another beauty of a delivery from Embuldeniya. Big rip.

OUT! Stumped. Lasith Embuldeniya to Sikandar Raza. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. That's a gorgeous bit of bowling from Embuldeniya. Lovely flight, then it dipped and spun past the outside edge. Raza attempted a full blooded drive, but missed and fell out of the crease. He tried to stretch the back foot back into the crease, but Dickwella was too quick behind the stumps. Off came the bails, and Sri Lanka have a sixth scalp.

Williams snicks one through to the keeper, and that's two gone in the first two overs after lunch. The skipper didn't have to play at this. A little bit of jag off the surface, he feels for it away from the body, and the ball kisses the outside edge. Super bowling from Rajitha, and gleefully taken by Dickwella behind the stumps.

Terrible start to the afternoon for the hosts. Lakmal has his fourth, he has been heroic so far today.

Kasun Rajitha to Sean Williams. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella. Zimbabwe get through to lunch three down. It was looking very bleak for them in the first half an hour of the session, as Suranga Lakmal tore through the top order with three wickets to his name. It seemed like there was a lack of concentration from the Zimbabweans early on, but Taylor and Williams soon got back on track. A superb partnership of 79 has settled the nerves for the hosts, and they are now in touching distance of gaining a lead. The afternoon session is the biggest one of the match so far. If the home side can grind it out, then they should get the draw. A flurry of wickets, and Sri Lanka will be favourites.

FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Brendan Taylor. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Agricultural from Taylor. This is way outside off, and he shovels it over wide mid on with distain. Lovely strike.

APPEAL! Kasun Rajitha to Brendan Taylor. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Fernando, appeal made for L.B.W. A little bit of deviation off the pitch, Taylor is struck on the pad, but nothing from the umpire again. That looked mighty close. Taylor suggests that it came off the bat, but it is hard to see on the replays. He may have got away with one there.

APPEAL! Lahiru Kumara to Sean Williams. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Mendis, appeal made for L.B.W. Kumara is pleading with the umpire, but he is unmoved. A good decision from the official. Williams goes too square with his shot, and gets struck high on the pad. The ball would've cleared the stumps, and it was heading down the legside as well.
