Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Only Test Day 2 July 15, 2017

SL v Zim highlights today – only test day two from R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (Sri Lanka) Saturday 15th July 2017. Zimbabwe won the toss and their captain AG Cremer decided bat first and they scored 356 runs in their first innings all out in 94.4 overs. They were four down at 70 but after that partnerships start building between many batsmen and CR Ervine smashed 160 off 256 deliveries. He smashed thirteen 4s and a maximum in his innings. When his wicket dismissed then it was 94.4 139.4 kph, bangs it in short, and he’s got his man! Slanted across the left-hander, steep bounce. Looks to stay next to the line and carve it over fine third man. Doesn’t hit it as fine as he’d like, and Dilruwan, running to his right at third man, takes a good, tumbling catch 356/10.

Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat.
