    Warnie was out for 99 caught by Mark Richardson on the square leg boundary. And i'd have to say it is in my top 3 list for the greatest/funniest moments in cricket ever.

    Fleming even made sure that Warnie knew that the square leg was going back, lol..he's a sucker for punishment.

    Is Taylor the sole white player? what about Edward Rainsford? That sounds like a european name to me. Good for Hondo, Nkala and Ebrahim, if it is them.

    This is going to be a complete shambles. I recks in the tests one Sri Lankan will go close to 350 at least.

    out of all the players that were sacked i feel for sean ervine.the man had a really bright future and could have been as good as andy flower.at 20 his career is over....unless he tries to get into the SA team
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I dont know if i want Zimbabwe to put up a brave fight or get absolutely crushed....

    Some people think the game of cricket is going from strength to strength... The very fact that this match is going ahead is clarification that it has just hit rock bottom...

    Well, the proverbial impact with the fan will occur tomorrow at 0830 BST... Let's hope Zimbabwe get hammered.

    They didn't both skipper the side in the same game though.

    Still can hardly believe this match is going ahead...

    The teams:
    Zimbabwe
    V Sibanda, BRM Taylor, E Chigumbura, *T Taibu, +A Maregwede, DT Hondo, DD Ebrahim, S Matsikenyeri, T Panyangara, ML Nkala, P Utseya.

    Sri Lanka
    *MS Atapattu, DPMD Jayawardene, ST Jayasuriya, +KC Sangakkara, TM Dilshan, RP Arnold, KMDN Kulasekara, M Muralitharan, WPUJC Vaas, DNT Zoysa, UDU Chandana.

    The good news (the way I see it) is that SL won the toss and sent Zimbabwe in, so at least there will be no batting records set today.

    The experienced Sibanda out for 0.

    Zimbabwe 1/1...whats the bet Taylor gets out for 0 & the blame for the loss is left entirely on him.

    And so it starts...

    1.6 Zoysa to Sibanda, OUT: lovely delivary out side the off stump,
    angling across the batsman. Goes for a drive out side the off
    stumps and gives away a faintish out side edge to Sangakkara
    behind the stump

    Zimbabwe 1/1, Partnership of 1
    V Sibanda c Sangakkara b Zoysa 0 (9b 0x4 0x6)
