    The tour match finished in a draw.

    Prosper Utseya top scored with 89 in Zimbabwe 'A's second innings. Sean Ervine made 75 in their 1st innings, and stand-in skipper Mahela Jayawardene made a 100.

    full scorecard

    Cricinfo Article

    An excellent article with the author concealed.

    A total disgrace that there are only 65 Test caps in the whole team. Heath Streak has that many by himself.

    Is there anything the selectors have done right?

    Anyway, 57/4, and Zoysa finishes before lunch with 3/16. Next up is the three debutants, Maregwede, Utseya and Panyangara.

    I have a feeling Sri Lanka will redefine the concept of squad rotation in this series...

    Mahwire should bat ahead of Panyangara. He classes himself as a batsman who bowls.

    Ebrahim isn't a specialist opener. He's just slotted in in the past because there is no one else.

    I just checked, and I found it amusing:

    A Flower and HK Olonga have made the greatest last stand for Zimbabwe.
