When PJ Moor’s wicket dismissed then it was 41.1 137.1 kph, Kumara returns and provides SL with the breakthrough! He roars and is flanked by his captain. This was dug in short on off stump, 137.1ks, Moor does not need a second invitation to pull. But square leg isn’t on the boundary. He is about 20 metres in, Moor hits it straight into the lap of Danushka, who is subbing for Asela. Moor sinks to his knees and drags himself off the field. Was the leg-side trap a plan from Chandimal and Kumara? 145/6. HMRKB Herath took four wickets, MDK Perera and CBRLS Kumara took one wicket each of them.

Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat.
