Disciplined Zimbabwe keep Sri Lanka in check despite strong start

Sri Lanka 122 for 2 (Karunaratne 44, Fernando 44, Tiripano 1-5) trail Zimbabwe 406 (Williams 107, Raza 72, Taylor 62, Embuldeniya 4-182, De Silva 3-71) by 284 runs

A disciplined performance from Zimbabwe’s bowlers ensured that Sri Lanka didn’t run away with the advantage, the visitors remaining 284 behind with eight wickets in hand as bad light brought a premature end to the second day’s play in Harare.

At the crease were Angelo Mathews, the double-centurion from the first Test, and Kusal Mendis, on 4 and 19 respectively.
