Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Only Test Day 5 Highlights July 18, 2017

SL v Zim highlights today – only test day five from R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (Sri Lanka) Tuesday 18th July 2017. Till end of the day four Sri Lanka was 218 runs behind from their target with seven wickets remaining. Zimbabwe scored 377 runs in their second innings which was a great knock for them specially outside of home. Sikandar Raza smashed 127 runs off 205 deliveries. He smashed nine 4s and a maximum in his great innings. When his wicket dismissed then it was 83.2 82.7 kph, oh, dear! That’s another wicket gone to the wrong shot selection. Raza played so well and he has given it away with a poor shot. Gets down for a reverse sweep but this is a slider, loops up on middle and leg and refuses to turn. Just comes on with the arm to beat the bat and crash into the stumps. Raza walks off to a well-deserved ovation from his team-mates, and it’s the 31st five-wicket haul for Herath in Tests 306/8.
