Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Only Test Day 1 Highlights Today 14 July 2017

Watch SL vs ZIM cricket highlights today on 14-7-2017. Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka day 1 highlights. Craig Ervine’s century was the main event of Zimbabwean innings. All other batsmen couldn’t contribute in a significant manner but Ervine saved his team through a defiant innings.

Toss: Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat.

Ervine had struck just two boundaries off his first 61 deliveries, but became braver once he was established, even carving Dilruwan Perera behind point, then clubbing him over long on, in the space of three deliveries, to go to 49. His most-recent 53 runs came from 66 deliveries – the offside his favoured zone for boundaries. Rare was the loose ball that went unpunished by him in the latter half of the session. This half century was his fourth in Test cricket, and he now stands 16 runs short of his second Test ton.

For 19 overs, Raza had been provided apt support. He had begun his innings the same way he finished the ODI series: with a six over the straight boundary. The remainder of his innings was only a little more laidback. In his 36 off 47 balls was the busy running that Sri Lanka saw from him in the ODIs, as well as the calculated boundary hitting – his two fours both hit square on the legside. He was nailed by a Rangana Herath about halfway through the session, and made the further mistake of reviewing that out decision, as he had hit the ball as well. Replays showed the ball had struck pad first, however, and the decision was upheld.
