    SL 31/3 now. Golden chance for Zimbabwe to win a series against a test nation.

    Wow. This will be huge for Zimbabwe after losing to Afghanistan and Scotland in recent times

    Looks like the pitch is spinning a lot. And SL drop Sandakan for this game.

    Firstly, I am not sure how Malinga is in the team..I thought he was suspended for 6 months.. secondly, even without that, not sure he makes it to the team based on merit. Sri Lanka persisting with Malinga based on reputation has cost them a lot now

    He should have got SL through against your lot in the Champions Trophy had it not been for Perera and some other guy dropping dollies from Sarfraz on his bowling.

    This is surely the lowest Sri Lankan cricket has been in a while.

    Even if those catches were taken, it still does not make up for all the filth he has bowled in the last 2 years and his general lethargy and fitness

    This is why Bangladesh need to play more 5 match series. Surely they would have won the series earlier in the year

    Agree his fitness is disgraceful, have you seen the size of his pot belly, guy can't even bend down to stop the ball, drops 90% of the catches

    you are right that we are in serious trouble..that is what happens when you have a hapless board and politicians that interfere where they are not wanted..Agree with all the comments here, the fitness levels of our team are the worst of any nation and the selections are mind boggling..People shouldn't take anything from Zimbabwe though, they have played good cricket and deserve to be where they are in this series.The only reason I can see for Malinga playing is for him to try and gain some match fitness ahead of the India series (however I wouldn't play him tbh).
    @Blackwarrior - his ban was suspended I believe( on the presumption that any further incidents would make it apply)..

    This is your best side at the moment bar Perera isn't it?

    personally I am not sure. we are missing Kusal Perera at seven but apart from that I wouldn't change the batting line up. The bowling is the issue, it just looks one dimensional. I cant see why Sandakan isn't in the team and personally I would have liked to see Lahiru Kumara in the team with Chameera. At least that way if we are going to lose we gain something for the future in terms of these young guys gaining experience. I expect Lakmal and Pradeep to come back for the India series but I just think that we have underestimated Zimbabwe and we really aren't in the position to do that presently..

    we had a couple of young guys with promise who were never seen again in Kasum Rajitha who was a medium pacer and also Bhanuka Rajapakse who showed promise as a right hand bat..
    edit: Also Dasun Shanaka who is a decent all rounder and still only 25?
