Click to follow
Zimbabwe lost five wickets for just 48 runs in 18 dramatic overs on the fourth day of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Harare yesterday. From the comfort of 247 for 3 at lunch, Zimbabwe slumped to 319 for 8 at close of play as they chased Sri Lanka's first-innings total of 383. The Sri Lankan left-arm seamer Chaminda Vaas, in only his second Test, did most of the damage and finished with figures of four for 74, while the wicketkeeper Pubudu Dassanayake took his tally of catches to five.
