    One person to come out of this with credit is Taibu, of course - a fantastic captain's innings. Shame he didn't bag a hundred.

    Oh, and Nkala who did a Chris Read to Murali in the last over.

    211-6.

    nkala hammers murali for 2 sixes....and we were expecting him to get 9 wickets in the match....tsk tsk
    taibu misses out on his century but he played brilliantly
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Murali was expensive in the end..10 overs 1/47.

    Good knock by Taibu, but had he not played that innings it could well have been a total less than 150.

    Panyangara gets a wicket with his 2nd ball. Jayasuriya would have his coach pulling his hair out...sometimes I don't think he treats any bowler with enough respect, hence why he only gets a decent score once every 6 or 7 innings.

    Panyangara gets the wicket of Jayasuriya with his second ball in ODI cricket. SL 1/9.

    I understand that, following on from the success certain Zimbabwean coaches and administrators have had in international cricket in the past, the ECB are considering finding a position for Robert Mugabe on the selection panel.

    The rain comes at quite an interesting time - good effort by the Zimbabweans though.

    The news apparently is that Sri Lanka's target has been reduced to 173 from 33 overs, meaning that they will have to score at around 5.4 per over to win. Could be an interesting finish - maybe even an upset win to the Zimbabweans.

    This is getting very interesting indeed. I'm surprised that Zoysa has been sent in as a pinch-hitter, seems to indicate a lack of confidence in Dilshan and Arnold. It could go horribly wrong - on the other hand he might smash a quick 50 and all will be well again. Have to wait and see I suppose.

    The only white man in the Zimbabwe side gets a duck. I might be talking complete crap, but would not be surprised if the ZCU paid Taylor money to make a duck so that they have an excuse to drop him and play an all black team. After all they offered Mark Vermeulen double his match fee not to play a while ago, just because he is white.

    I doubt he was paid to get a duck, but there is a good chance that they will drop him.

    Zoysa out for 14, SL 4/77. A lot of pressure on Sangakkara now...

    I read about this last week, and found it confusing - was this actually one of the demands of the alienated player group? Because that's what the article I read at cricinfo seemed to imply. And if that was the case, why?

    81/4 now, and looking fairly dire for the Sri Lankans. Very nasty surprise right at the beginning of the tour.

    Light offered to the batsmen and taken. I guess they would be ahead on D/L calculations at 4/144. In fact apparently they have won - by 12 runs. Oh well, at least the Zimbabwe team salvaged their pride, and at one stage threatened an upset win.
