Lucky wicket there but they’ve bowled well so they deserve some luck, not sure why they waited another to take the new ball.

Here we go need to make this new nut count if Zimbabwe want a 1st innings lead, if they don’t take 2-3 here you feel Sri Lanka will coast past the 358 and try and bat Zimbabwe out of the match

Couldn’t possibly take him to Bangladesh
I think they will take Burl to Bangladesh based on his bowling in the BPL.
Take Chisoro too, IMO his bowling will really suit the conditions there

We were all expecting Jarvis to be a handful with the new ball and cause all soughts of problems.

I am still hoping he proves me wrong

I think the problem with Jarvis at the moment is that he has become too much of an automatic pick.

I don’t see him fighting for a spot to play in the side,I
Think he needs the competition to motivate him!

This right now is the point where we need some luck. In Mathews and Dhananjaya de Silva, they have their two best players in the middle and they can take the game away from us in a session very quickly.

I don’t think that’s the issue. He seems to be bowling well.
Bowling. It’s like Poker. Play well,Some days it works and comes off, other days you can play your socks off and it just doesn’t happen.
Bowling better measured over time and visually how much of a handful you are or not to the bat.

Jarvis, Nayuchi & Tiripano depends on seaming condition and pitch to pick wickets. They doesnt have express pace to get reverse or a bouncer to trouble batalsman which becomes effective in this type of slow flat deck

Zimbabwe attack doesnt seems has the quality to take 20 wickets and win test matches.
