Zimbabwe started the play from 126 with two down yesterday and all out at 272 in 82.1 overs then Sri Lanka started their first innings and four down at 102 in 40 overs.
FDM Karunaratne opener of the Sri Lankan team scored 88 runs off 208 balls with smashing eight boundaries, when his wicket down then it was 72.3 128.2 kph, Mpofu belts out an appeal for lbw, umpire Fry raises his finger. Dimuth, though, calls for a review. Looks plumb to me.
Good length on middle, skids on after pitching, Dimuth plays around his pad. The ball beats the inside edge and strikes the back pad. Impact in line. Hitting middle of middle stump. Umpire Fry’s call is upheld. No ton for Dimuth. The reward for Mpofu 198/6.
Toss: Zimbabwe and chose bowl.
