Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe, One-off Test, Day 1 Highlights: Ervine 151* helps Zimbabwe take honoursAfter being reduced to 70/4 at one stage, batsman Craig Ervine (151 not out) revived the visitors with a fine batting display to take Zimbabwe's total to 344/8 at stumps on Day 1.
Hello and welcome to our Live coverage of the one-off Test match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Zimbabwe have won the toss and and have opted to bat. After Angelo Mathews stepped down as captain from all formats, Dinesh Chandimal has been appointed as their 15th Test skipper. The hosts will have to pull themselves up after a shock series defeat in the ODIs. Nothing less then a win will be acceptable for Chandimal, against a team which is ranked 10th and has never defeated the Lankans in the longest format of the game. They would hope all their players stand up and deliver the goods. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe will be high on confidence. It is a different format altogether and they will have to bring their A game to the fore. The home side are favorites on paper, but as we saw in the ODIs, cricket is a funny game and you can't rule the Zimbabweans out. Catch all the latest updates here.
