    Yup, another buzzer there. Wheels off; sniping at each other too. Poor show all round.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Lol. Perera having a look first up then. Beautiful strike.

    That's going to be way to many for Zim. They're going to need a miracle from Taylor.

    Wow. Big in-hoop from Kula first up.

    Zim be doing well to get within 50 here, IMHO.

    Can't believe Masakadza's only 29. Sure he was on Cricket 2002 I had on my old PS2. Used to tickle me how Richie said his name, in fact.

    Not the worst start of a chase Zimbabwe could have hoped for...

    No, it's been ok, but just to keep up with the original target they need to be at 45 by the end of the 5th over. Still 36/0 from 5 is pretty decent, given the bowling.

    Made his Test debut before he turned 18 tbf. Actually held the record for the youngest centurion debutant for a brief few months before Ashraful broke it again.

    Some spell from Mendis, A. 6 for 8 with 2 maidens. You won't see better.

    Zimbas literally having no idea.

    Lol Mendis.

    I thought Zimbabwe were improving the past couple of years but they seem to have gone in the opposite direction recently based of this awful performance.

    Have to say Mendis, J looks a useful cricketer. Decent control for a wrist spinner and has a well-disguised Bosie too.

    93/9 with just Mpofu to come...

    Yeah, not a great contest, tbf.

    Zim really let themselves down, as santimonious an old prick as that makes me sound.

    Not the perfect outing SL would have wanted, although the scorecard suggests otherwise. Batting was patchy. Munaweera at the top couldn't get going, hopefully he can adjust quickly. Ground fielding was abysmal as well, lots of direct hits missed, sloppy outfielding and throws not getting collected cleanly. A better team would have made SL pay.
    I'll show how it's done....

    Mpofu out for Price (and quite right too) and yer Saffers prefer some random (Farhaan Behardien, ftr; never seen the boy play) to Ontong & du Plessis.

    Watchful stuff from the Zimba openers; just a short single off Steyn's first over.
