Angelo Mathews, Kusal Mendis lead Sri Lanka’s strong reply

Sri Lanka 295 for 4 (Mathews 92*, Mendis 80, Nyauchi 2-38) trail Zimbabwe 358 (Ervine 85, Embuldeniya 5-114) by 63 runs

Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis led Sri Lanka’s steady progress on day three, as the visitors finished just 63 runs adrift, with six wickets still in hand.

They lost a wicket in each session on what was a still placid Harare Sports Club surface. The most likely route to a result in this Test may be for Sri Lanka to establish a big lead in the first innings, then dismiss Zimbabwe cheaply.
