4

to Dickwella, FOUR, what a start for SL! Far away from ideal for Zimbabwe. Loosener from . Short and wide outside off. 'See the ball, hit the ball' mantra from Dickwella as he slashes it wide of backward of point. Raced away into the fence

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, nicely done! Didn't hit the ball too hard. Moves across in his crease does Gunathilaka and closes his bat face as he glances this short of length delivery through mid-wicket. Raza chases, but comes second best

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, shot! glorious shot. Slightly overpitched and Gunathilaka takes full toll of it. Leans onto it and middles the cover drive. Once he found the gap, there was none stopping that. Well wide of mid-off

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, you don't bowl this after putting a man on the off-side. Short ball without any venom, Gunathilaka gets into a good position and smacks the pull through square leg

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, even better! Why is banging it short? This time, Gunathilaka pulls off the front foot followed by a swivel. Pummelled it wide of mid-wicket

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, that Jayasuriya-esque. Wristy shot! Full ball on the pads, Dickwella whips the flick over mid-wicket. Bulleted away into the fence

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, backs away, opens the blade by using the pace on the ball and steers it away past the short third fielder for a four

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, the 'Dickwella' scoop. He shuffles across, sits down on one knee and scoops the length ball over the short fine fielder for a four

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, squares the batter up, the ball though takes the edge and runs away towards third man for a four. The dive from Mumba at deep third was not enough to keep the ball in play

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, Oh, we have seen that before! The Matara Mauler used to do it. Now, Dickwella does it. Slightly erring on middle and leg, Dickwella picks it away off his pads and gets it to land in the vacant backward square region

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, down onto the pads, the shuffle might have forced the bowler to target the leg-stick but it is never a great idea. A healthy tickle to take it fine for a four

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, pitched up, room provided and clobbered down the ground over the bowler's head for a four. Launched into the assault as he saw it full

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, bat on the clip and through the keeper's gloves down the leg-side. That can be considered a half-chance for sure. He picked it late and moved late to his right, failed to get down in time to catch that

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, tossed up delivery outside off, Dickwella leans into the drive and threads the ball through the covers for a four. What way to get to fifty! Fifth half-ton for the keeper-batsman from Lanka

OT

to Gunathilaka, 1 run, shovels the ball out into the on-side and brings up the ton for the combo!

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, cheeky and effective. Tossed up delivery outside off, Dickwella gets down one on knee and reverse-sweeps it fine. No chance for short third man to stop that

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, he hardly hit it! Just a touch of the willow as he eased it past cover. The man at sweeper had no chance. A full ball it was and put away

D

Williams to Dickwella, no run, DROPPED! Musakanda at point drops a dolly as the batsman played a reverse sweep. The ball went in and popped out

OT

to Dickwella, 1 run, tap and run, Gunathilaka has to dive into his crease at the striker's end as the throw from cover came in

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, shot! Half-tracker and Gunathilaka takes full toll. He goes deep in his crease, allows the ball to turn away and hammers it into the extra cover fence

OT

to Gunathilaka, 1 run, 6th ODI fifty for Gunathilaka. A good knock so far from the leftie. Gets there by clipping a flat ball through mid-wicket

4

Williams to Dickwella, FOUR, seeing the batter backing away, Williams darted it wide of off. But, Dickwella outsmarted him by steering it behind square on the off-side. In the gap and the ball goes past the fence

4

Williams to Gunathilaka, FOUR, long-hop and Gunathilaka muscles the pull over a ducking square leg umpire. Went to the fence at a rapid pace

4

Williams to Gunathilaka, FOUR, not very short, but Gunathilaka converted into one by going deep in his crease. Crouches low and pummels the pull behind square on the on-side. There were two men in the deep, all they could was to see it bullet away into the fence

OT

Williams to Gunathilaka, 1 run, worked away to deep mid-wicket. Brings up the 150-run stand

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, loose delivery! Half-tracker without any pace, Gunathilaka makes room by backing away and fiercely cuts it through the covers

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, follows it up with a gross ball. Short and down leg, Gunathilaka jumps back and pulls it past the man at 45. This is Gunathilaka's highest score in ODIs

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, poor ball and another boundary for Sri Lanka. Fine leg and backward square leg are inside the circle. Dickwella smartly goes deep and scoops it over backward square leg

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, leg-stump line, Dickwella gets a top edge on his sweep. But it travels in the no-man's area. Square leg puts in a dive, but in vain. Highest ODI score for Dickwella

OT

to Dickwella, 1 run, and now you can celebrate! Maiden ODI century for Dickwella. He removes his helmet, pumps his fist, raises his bat and gets a hug from Gunathilaka. Gets there by nurdling this length ball through square leg. His team-mates are up on their feet to applaud this fine knock

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, beautiful stroke to bring up your team's 200! Tossed up delivery outside off, Gunathilaka comes down, gets to the pitch and lofts it down the ground. One bounce and over the fence

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, cheeky, deft and effective. Slightest of width and that's enough for the batter to back away and late-cut it wide of short third man. A chase given, in vain

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, quick short ball, Gunathilaka stands tall and fiercely pulls it through mid-wicket. Went like a rocket into the fence

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, maiden ton for Gunathilaka!! That was short and pulled away with might in front of square to beat deep square leg. Maiden tons for both SL openers. He absolutely butchered that

4

to Gunathilaka, FOUR, short again, doesn't rise much but enough for Gunathilaka to pivot on the back foot and pull it away behind square

4

to Dickwella, byes, FOUR, down leg, batsman goes for the reverse and misses and so does the keeper. Moor continues his ordinary day at the office, especially down the leg-side

W

to Dickwella, out Caught by Sean Williams!! The marathon partnership has ended. A sweep, the top-edge on it and the man just behind square pouches it over his head. strikes. Is it too late? You never know. But end of a good knock from the keeper-batsman. He went about his merry ways and played his shots to assert domination over the Zimbabweans. Dickwella c Sean Williams b 102(116) [4s-14]

6

Williams to Gunathilaka, SIX, slog sweep, better connection, powerful connection. The ball soars over the man at deep mid and stays hit. A maximum

D

Williams to Gunathilaka, no run, dropped by Mumba at long-on! That kind of a day. A tossed u delivery, Gunathilaka jogs down and decides to go downtown. Doesn't middle it and hits it straight to Mumba who puts down a dolly. The batters did not run

W

Williams to Gunathilaka, out Bowled!! The chance provided doesn't help him much. Gone next ball. Looks to back away and dab it, gets it off the inside edge and the ball dribbles back to the sticks. The bail was ever so carefully dislodged by the ball and that heralds the departure of Gunathilaka. Back-to-back wickets in back-to-back overs for Zimbabwe. Cry of agony for Williams replaced by a cry of accomplishment, the very next ball. Gunathilaka b Williams 116(111) [4s-15 6s-1]

4

Williams to Tharanga, FOUR, paddles it fine by taking it from the sticks and manages to beat the dive from short fine leg. That will release the pressure by a fair bit. Williams is distraught

OT

to Tharanga, no run, backs away and cuts it straight to the man at cover. Looks for a single but is sent back. The throw from cover rattles the sticks direct at the striker's end and the third umpire was called in. Not Out is the verdict as he was easily in

6

Williams to Tharanga, SIX, half whip, half sweep, the ball evades the flying Mire and his left outstretched hand. The ball seems to have landed on the ropes. Six given by the third umpire. That was full on the pads and he smoked it

6

Williams to Tharanga, SIX, backs away, creates freedom for his arms and then cannons the ball over deep mid for the second six of the over as the ball was dragged way too short. 18 runs of that over and Lanka have decided to press the accelerator

D

to Tharanga, 1 run, another chance goes down! The fielder at cover parries it over the bar as he jumped in the air to take it. Chibhabha, the sub was in the firing line. Tharanga tried to go inside out never got enough elevation on it

D

to Kusal Mendis, 1 run, oh my o my! Another chance. He gets a left hand on it this time as Kusal Mendis pulled it hard. The ball was travelling at the pace of knots and Chibhabha only managed to save a four, to be fair to him

4

to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, not too far away from the sub at mid-wicket as the pull rockets past him and into the fence in a jiffy. That was dragged down by the bowler and Kusal Mendis rocked to assert the pull away

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, to sweeper cover, stabbed cover drive after backing away and the ball races into the sweeper cover fence

4

to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, stands tall and ramps the ball down to third man for a four. The runs are coming thick and fast now

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, a handsome pull past the man at fine leg and Lanka take a 2-1 lead in style. This is the 10th time Lanka have chased down a total in excess of 300. First time at home. A hit me delivery onto the body and Tharanga rolled his wrists over that to send it speeding away into the fence

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, shot! First boundary of the day. Width on offer and Masakadza latches onto it. Length ball around the fifth stump line, Masakadza slashes it away through the covers. The outfield is pretty quick and does the rest

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, glorious shot! Didn't hit the ball hard and relied on timing. Wow. Length ball around off, Masakadza leans forward and on-drives it. Off the straight bat and the ball races away. No chance for mid-on

4

to Mire, FOUR, shot! A short arm jab. Short ball, Mire picks the length early, gets into a good position and pulls it over mid-wicket. Made good contact and collects his first boundary

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, that's a gift and Masakadza accepts it gleefully. Loads of width outside off, Masakadza plants his front foot across and creams the drive through the covers. Raced away into the fence. Went hard on his drive and middled it

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, another short one that doesn't rise much. Masakadza didn't go too deep, still was in a good position to pull it with a swivel through square on the leg-side

4

to Mire, FOUR, where did this come from? A wild heave and Mire gets a boundary. It was a length delivery around off and Mire went hard on his shot. Found the gap between mid-on and mid-wicket

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, excellent shot to end the over. Half-volley outside off, Masakadza prods forward and cracks the drive wide of mid-off

W

to Mire, out Lbw!! And now he's gone! This is poor batting from Mire. He perishes playing across the line. angles in a pitched up delivery. Mire comes forward and looks to work it through the on-side. The impact is in front of middle. That'd have gone onto hit middle and leg. Ian Gould didn't have any hesitations in raising his finger. Mire lbw b 13(21) [4s-2]

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, glorious shot! Masakadza is such a treat to watch when he plays shots like these. Very full ball outside off, Masakadza leans onto it and caresses it through extra cover. Cracking cover drive

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, Masakadza goes aerial and he hit it pretty well. Comes forward and lofts this fullish ball over mid-on. He played it along the direction of wind. Fifty up for the Zimbabweans!

4

to Musakanda, FOUR, drops it short, allows the batsman to trek back and hammer the pull past mid-wicket. The batter picked the length early and dispatched it with disdain

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, slight room off a shortish length. The blazing blade cuts the ball past point and gets a four square of the wicket. Eighth four for him!

OT

to Masakadza, 1 run, onto the pads, paddled fine to deep fine leg for a single. Fifty for Masakadza. This has been an enterprising knock for a man who needed runs under his belt. 31st ODI fifty for Masakadza

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, short ball which doesn't rise much and Masakadza is able to get on top of the bounce. He then smacks it away and pierces the gap between fine leg and square leg. Another four for Masakadza

4

to Musakanda, FOUR, slapped, whacked and four! The shortish ball turned away, Musakanda uncocked the wrists on the flat slap to get it past mid-off

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, reaches the landing of the ball with a huge stride towards the line of the ball and then spanks it down the ground over the bowler's head for a four to long-on. Hitting it clean and through the line with elan

4

Hasaranga to Musakanda, FOUR, hat-trick in the last game, starts with a bad bad ball. Dropped it way too short and Musakanda stamped back to trample the pull away through cow corner for a four

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, a checked uppish drive and over mid-off for a four. Was not in total control of the shot but got it away. The bowler cut down on the pace of that ball to force the error but the batter had timed it well enough

4

Hasaranga to Masakadza, FOUR, reverse paddle to a delivery which was down leg. He took it on the full and played it fine. The Zimbabweans continue to premeditate and be successful

4

Hasaranga to Masakadza, FOUR, chips down the track and then clubs it down the ground by taking it on the full. The man at long-on was not straight enough to cut it off

6

to Musakanda, SIX, in the air and just clears the ropes. Loopy full ball, Musakanda heaves it across the line and makes decent contact. Lofts it wide of long-on and way she goes into the stands

4

to Musakanda, FOUR, hit-me delivery from . Full toss drifting down leg. Easy pickings for Musakanda, who flicks it away fine. No chance for fine leg to stop that

6

to Masakadza, SIX, what a shot! Brings up the 100-run stand in style. Masakadza shimmies down the track and superbly chips it over mid-off who is inside the circle. Superb connection and the ball hits the boundary rope on the full

OT

to Musakanda, no run, appeal for lbw and umpire Ian Gould isn't happy. SL go upstairs. Musakanda is the man in question. Legal delivery. Bat involved? Looks like boot first. Looks like, it might miss the leg-pole. We're waiting for the ball-tracker. Umpire's call as the ball is clipping the leg-stump. Sri Lanka lose their only review. NOT OUT! It was a reverse-swinging yorker from and Musakanda was late to bring his bat down. Hit the boot on the full in front of middle and leg. Gould's onfield stays intact

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, innovative and effective. Masakadza waits for the ball and reverse-sweeps just wide of the keeper. Short third man is pretty square and has no chance to cut that off

OT

to Masakadza, 2 runs, fifth ODI century for Masakadza! He gets there in 83 balls. Third fastest by a Zimbabwean and his first against a top Test playing nation. He is helped by a low full toss down leg that has been helped away down to fine leg with a whippy flick. Points to his badge on the shirt and gets an ovation from his dressing room. And then removes his helmet followed by the raise of the bat

W

to Musakanda, out Caught by Tharanga!! The 127-run stand has been broken! A wicket that comes against the run of play. Musakanda misses his fifty by two runs. Loopy ball from , Musakanda gets low and looks to heave it across the line against the breeze. Didn't time it as well as he would have liked it to and ends up gifting a simple catch to Tharanga at long-on. Musakanda c Tharanga b 48(57) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, glorious shot! That should amplify Ervine's confidence. Floater outside off, Ervine gets to the pitch of the delivery with a stride forward and creams the drive. Perfectly placed between short cover and mid-off

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, fetches this full ball from down leg and brooms it away behind square on the off-side with a reverse-sweep. Placed it very fine and short third man's chase ends up in vain

W

Hasaranga to Masakadza, out Caught by Pradeep!! Masakadza is gone! A big wicket for Sri Lanka. The sweep shots that fetched him so many runs leads to his downfall. This was drifting into the right-hander and Masakadza decided to go big with a slog sweep fetching from well outside off. All he manages was a top edge that got more height than the distance. Pradeep, at deep square leg, ran to his right and pouched it. Wasn't an easy catch with the strong wind blowing around. For a moment, it looked like he might overrun. Didn't and completed a fine catch. End of a fine knock. Masakadza c Pradeep b Hasaranga 111(98) [4s-15 6s-1]

W

Hasaranga to Craig Ervine, out Lbw!! Second wicket for Hasaranga. top call from Ranmore Martinesz. The slider from Hasaranga that goes on straight. Ervine looks to sweep and misses as the ball goes underneath the horizontal blade. Pitched on leg, hitting front leg and HawkEye confirms hitting the leg-pole. Ervine went upstairs, but the decision was upheld. Craig Ervine lbw b Hasaranga 16(24) [4s-1]

4

to Sean Williams, FOUR, drops it short, way too short for Lanka's liking and Sean Williams pivoted on his back foot to slam the pull away through the cow corner for a four

4

to Waller, FOUR, quicker and angled across the batter, Waller opens the face of the blade on that and steered it between point and short third for a timely four. Slight bit of room and that was enough for the batsman to cash into

4

Hasaranga to Sean Williams, FOUR, another tango down the track and goes over the bowler's head this time. Safe shot. No hindrance and long-off comes a distant second. First boundary in 25 balls!

W

to Sean Williams, out Bowled!! A skidder out does the premeditated attempt of paddling it fine. The batter moved too much across his sticks, exposed his entire woodwork and ended up missing it completely. Sean Williams tried to play it with the breeze but could get no bat on it. Lanka get the danger man. into his last over continues to do the impressive work as he was the man who removed Musakanda as well. Sean Williams b 43(47) [4s-2]

W

to Waller, out Lbw!! That's plumb! Dead in front. goes for the dipping yorker and misses. Ends up as a low full toss and Waller fails to make connection looking to whip it across the line. Hits the front pad in front of middle. Easy one for Ian Gould who raises his finger in a flash. Waller lbw b 17(24) [4s-1]

4

to Moor, FOUR, flat and wide outside off, full as well. Moor leans forward and drives all along the ground through extra cover. No chance for the converging fielders in the deep

OT

to Moor, 1 run, on the stumps, nurdled to backward square leg and Raza calls through for a quick single. Malinga doesn't find the target and Raza is in

4

to Moor, FOUR, a much-needed boundary for Zimbabwe. misses the yorker by few inches and Moor cashes in. Slightly backs away, gets underneath the delivery and lofts it over mid-off. Almost went the distance

6

to Moor, SIX, superb shot! One of the best shots of the day! The ball was drifting in, Moor slightly opens up his stance and lofts it handsomely over the long-off fielder

6

to Moor, SIX, six more! Too full and Moor takes full toll of it. Sinks on one knee and nails the slog sweep over cow corner

W

to Moor, out Caught by Kusal Mendis!! Moor tries to make it three in a row and perishes. A good cameo comes to an end. He is patted by his partner as he walks off. This was the wrong 'un and Moor decided to slog sweep against the turn and against the wind. Doesn't middle it and Mendis at long-on takes a good catch coming forward. Moor c Kusal Mendis b 24(11) [4s-2 6s-2]

W

to Raza, out Cremer Run Out!! A soft dismissal. Cremer is out without facing a delivery. That happens when you are backing up by a long way. This was a short of length delivery on the stumps and Raza stroked it back to the bowler. Cremer was way out of his crease and has no trouble in dislodging the bails. A diamond duck for the Zimbabwean captain. Cremer run out () 0(0)

4

to Raza, FOUR, smart shot! Not a great ball though. Raza backs away and follows him by bowling a full toss. A heave through mid-wicket for a boundary

4

to Raza, FOUR, four more and that brings up Zimbabwe's 300. Raza backs away and this time misses the yorker outside off. Carved away through the cover region

6

to Raza, SIX, Raza caps off the innings in style! Moves leg-side and shimmies down the track against this length delivery. Then, follows it up with a lofted on-drive over long-off for a six. 17 runs have come off the last over
