Watch live cricket streaming of Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe 2020 Test Series live stream on WatchLiveCric.com Third Day of Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe Match is a very important one that may decide the fate of this test match. ZImbabwe scored big in the first innings but on DAY 2 Sri Lanka came back with a strong reply. Both the openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Oshada Fernando started off really well and laid a very strong platform for Sri Lanka. Now Sri Lanka still needs to cover a lot of ground to reach pass 400 runs. On the other hand, Carl Mumba, Sikandar Mirza, Donald Tiripano, Victor and other Zimbabwe bowlers need to get Sri Lankan batsmen out early to get hold of this second Test. SL is leading the series 1-0 already.

.
Sikandar Raza to Kusal Mendis. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Ervine. Handshakes. Sri Lanka survive the day, and the game ends in a draw. Zimbabwe played superbly across the five days, but the pitch didn't quite have enough in it for the bowlers for them to get all 20 wickets. Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza stand out with their performances. Kusal Mendis did the job for the visitors today with a fantastic century. All that means that Sri Lanka win the two match series 1-0. A great contest between the two sides, but the away side had that bit of extra quality that proved crucial.

APPEAL! Sikandar Raza to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Chakabva, appeal made for L.B.W.

OUT! Caught. Lasith Embuldeniya to Victor Nyauchi. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by de Silva. That wicket signals the end of the innings for Zimbabwe as they finish on 406 all out. A much improved display from the Sri Lanka bowlers meant runs weren't scored as freely and wickets came in quick succession. Sri Lanka now need to get as close to the Zimbabwe score as possible, if they see out the new ball without the loss of a wicket they have the chance to score lots of runs.

That four brings the Zimbabwe total to 401, a very good score to set Sri Lanka, lots of positives for Zimbabwe to take into their bowling, a decent amount of movement from both the seamers and spinners which could see Sri Lanka struggle early on.

Good morning and welcome to the second day of the final test between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. Zimbabwe are off to a great start in this one finishing day one on 352 for 6, Williams was the star yesterday with his ton, contributions from Taylor and Raza were also important. Sri Lanka need to get wickets early after they took the new ball straight away last night, with the ball getting older, Zimbabwe will fancy scoring a few more runs. It's still all to play for in this one with Zimbabwe currently on top.

That over concludes the days play, Zimbabwe end on 352 for 6, a cracking first innings score, Taylor, Raza and a century from Williams have set Zimbabwe up for a good first innings total that will put pressure on the Sri Lankan batsmen when they come out to bat. They've leant a lot since the first test, they are off at nearly 4 per over, a much improved rate compared with the first test. Sri Lanka have a lot of work to do tomorrow to stop Zimbabwe from getting a firm grip on this test.

Start of Zimbabwe Innings. Good morning and welcome to the second test between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka in Harare. After last weeks performance Zimbabwe will be looking to bounce-back quickly after they lost by 10 wickets. Zimbabwe looked good in the first innings making 358, after that innings it was all Sri Lanka though, as they made 515 and then put the game to bed in the Zimbabwe second innings. Zimbabwe have a lot of potential, the one key for them is to take wickets consistently, then they might have a chance of getting something out of this game.

OUT! Caught. Victor Nyauchi to Vishwa Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chakabva. Wrapped up the innings before the tea break with a healthy lead of 113. Nearly a perfect session for Zimbabwe but the final partnership would have frustrated them. Raza was simply fantastic with the ball in hand, a career best 7-113 while the pressure was kept up from the other end by the rest.Decent lead then for Zimbabwe as they head into their second innings and now it is down to their batsmen to make it count.

After two fantastic days of Test cricket the match is evenly poised with Sri Lanka trailing by 284 but with plenty of wickets in the bag. A solid start by Zimbabwe this morning though and they could move into a strong position. Going to be a very important session for both sides and it's going to be interesting viewing.

Now it's bad light stopping play, the over before they checked the light and made the decision to only allow spinners to bowl, now they have come off all together. That's it for today, little bit of rain in the air so best to be safe than sorry. Sri Lanka end the second day on 122 for 2, the fall of Oshada and Dimuth has brought Zimbabwe back in this one, lots of turn from the spinners, they will be crucial in the following days for both sides, Sri Lanka still need 284 runs to draw level.

Tea break now, Sri Lanka have managed to get to 88 without loss, a very good start from them with a turning pitch. They've seen off the new ball, so runs should come in the third session of the day. Zimbabwe have bowled a disciplined line so far this innings but failed to get one of the batsmen to nick off which has been the most likely mode of dismissal.

Four more for the pair, this time Mutombodzi gives Oshada a juicy full toss which he drives in the gap for four. Both Sri Lanka's and Zimbabwe's spinners struggled on this deck to pitch it in the right places, maybe the pressure of getting turn on this pitch means they try too hard and start making more unforced errors.

SIX! Suranga Lakmal to Sean Williams. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. Whipped off the pads, and the ball flies over the square leg fence for a maximum off the first ball of the day. Williams gets to fifty, and he declare immediately. Very strange start of the day. Zimbabwe will lose two overs to bowl at Sri Lanka now.Welcome to the fifth and final day of the Test Match and of the whole series. There is still a slight possibility of all three results, although the draw is the most likely at the moment. Interestingly, though, Zimbabwe have not declared overnight. A bizarre decision. The lead is 354 and there are 98 overs in the day. Surely they have enough runs? Only 54 overs were able to be bowled yesterday because of rain and bad light. Hopefully the full amount can be squeezed in to give both sides a chance of pulling off a win.

Suranga Lakmal to Donald Tiripano. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to point for 1 run, fielded by Fernando. A reading has been taken by the umpires, and they deem that the light isn't good enough to continue.Unfortunately there won't be any more play today. Not good news for Zimbabwe, who will no doubt declare overnight now. The hosts will have 98 overs to bowl out Sri Lanka tomorrow to try and level the series. Whether all those are able to be fit in is another question. Sri Lanka trail by 354 runs, so a victory for them is very unlikely. Hopefully the rain stays away tomorrow, and we can get some action-packed cricket in to finish off the series.

OUT! L.B.W. Vishwa Fernando to Sikandar Raza. Seaming in length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Another dodgy call from the umpire. Zimbabwe certainly haven't been helped by them today. Raza falls over the shot after the ball nips back, and is pinned right in front. It would've crashed into middle and leg, but it was pitching outside the line of leg stump. Either way, Raza has to go.

The spin has looked the most threatening, but it has also been the most expensive. The visitors will be getting worried if they don't quickly bundle out the rest of the line up this afternoon.

OUT! Stumped. Lasith Embuldeniya to Timycen Maruma. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Gorgeous bowling from Embuldeniya. Looped up to entice the big drive, and Maruma gets sucked into it. The ball ripped past the outside edge, and Maruma's back leg slides out the crease. Dickwella is lightning quick behind the stumps. Off come the bails, and that is out by a distance.

Huge mix up between Masvaure and Taylor, and it's the opener that has to go. Prince wanted the second and came charging down, and it was his call. Taylor didn't fancy it at all, and was unmoved at the striker's end. He did turn down the second instantly, but Masvaure kept coming. He eventually decided to go back, but it was too late. Run out by a long way.

FOUR! Lasith Embuldeniya to Brendan Taylor. Stock ball full toss, off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Not a good delivery from Embuldeniya. A juicy full toss, and that makes Taylor's job a lot easier. Cradled away round the corner for four more.

He feels for the ball away from the body with no conviction at all. All hands, no feet, and the outside edge is found. A little bit of turn off the surface, a healthy nick, and Dhananjaya gobbles up the chance at first slip. Great start for the visitors.

Lahiru Kumara to Prince Masvaure. Half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella. Welcome to Day 4 of this second Test between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. The hosts are in a strong position after a superb day yesterday. They managed to get a first innings lead of 113, and will look to build on that in the next few sessions. Zimbabwe will probably have to bat in a positive manner, as there is only a certain amount of time left in the game, and they need to make sure they have enough overs left to bowl Sri Lanka out again. Remember the home side trail 1-0 in the series, so need a victory in this one. So expect an entertaining few hours this morning, as Sri Lanka need a cluster of wickets to get back into the contest, and Zimbabwe look to push on to a big enough lead.

A steady drizzle has come across the ground and that means it's time for the groundstaff to do their thing.Stumps called on day three and it has been a day which Zimbabwe have been brilliant. Bowling Sri Lanka out below 300 and keeping a decent lead. After all this the openers along with Regis Chakabva have pushed on at a good rate and now Sri Lanka trail by 175 with plenty of work still to do before they get the chance to bat. Interesting couple of days ahead of us then, do join us tomorrow at 9:35am local time as we make up for lost time.

Sri Lanka survive the day, and the game ends in a draw. Zimbabwe played superbly across the five days, but the pitch didn't quite have enough in it for the bowlers for them to get all 20 wickets. Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza stand out with their performances. Kusal Mendis did the job for the visitors today with a fantastic century. All that means that Sri Lanka win the two match series 1-0. A great contest between the two sides, but the away side had that bit of extra quality that proved crucial.

Kusal Mendis has looked in brilliant touch, and isn't far away from another Test century. It's hard to see the hosts forcing a collapse and getting these remaining seven wickets, but they will fight hard till the end.
