Zimbabwe’s spinners found some turn, but it was mostly of the slow variety, rather than the fast, ripping spin that is often seen at Galle. The lack of genuine menace in the middle overs saw Sri Lanka move almost unchecked through parts of their innings, and a score in excess of 300 looked likely from the early overs. Seamer Tendai Chatara returned the best figures, claiming a wicket at either end of the innings, while also going at only 5.44 per over. Sean Williams, Graeme Cremer and Solomon Mire all claimed a wicket a piece.

Mendis’ innings was fluent from the outset. He slapped Chatara in front of point, and then wide of mid-on, for successive fours in the ninth over as he claimed a steady string of fuss-free runs into the outfield while the ball was still new and the pitch afforded the quicks a little movement.
