    2nd spinner is playing, dliruwan perera, he has been their 2nd spinner for a while.

    I meant Sandakan who played in the Australia series

    Sandakan is a bit hot or cold for me. Mostly cold. He needs to sort out his line.

    Zimbabwe needs to get rid one of mendis/mathews quickly in the morning session. Otherwise panic will set in.

    Lakmal as I always feel has been that one bowler who is one of few to not get injured.He has evolved in to a far better bowler.But the downside in SL is the support the seamers get.Lakmal did a decent job in SA.

    Apart from Lakmal,Pradeep is injured,however he will be expected to take part in India series.

    Chameera once did well in NZ with a match bag of 9 wickets.Then caught a back injury which kept him away from cricket for a good year and a half.

    I'd still put both Chameera, and Lahiru Kumara in the raw category.

    About Prasad,he is likely to feature in the Pakistan tests later this year

    How difficult is that the pitch for batting?

    Not all that difficult.But the odd ball could turn viciously.

    There's nothing much h for the seamers in general.It comes down to shot selection at the end of the day.

    Raza and Williams are passable batting all rounders but I think Zimbabwe missed a trick by not selecting a proper second spinner.

    Who actually is Zim's second front line spinner these days? It would have to be for Chris 'no comment' Mpofu as Tiripano has shown an ability to bat.

    Awesome Test this, I've only watched about 2 hours total but been following cricinfo more closely than your typical Zimbo Test.

    Looks like my prediction is gonna be right, zim haven't set enough, needed 400+, currently one big partnership and sl could get there
