Sikandar Gives Zimbabwe Edge In Sri Lanka Test

Sikandar Raza did not try to help Zimbabwe recover from the collapse of the peak and help Sri Lanka go through the one-off test on Sunday to lead the second inning to 262.

Visitors saw Sikandar and Malcolm Waller (57) show their undefeated 107 points at Colombo's R. Premadasa Stadium on the 7th wicket and scored 252 points when they scored six out of the third place Stump.

Sikandar, Sri Lanka's left-handed striker Rangana Herath hit Zimbabwe 23-4 with four fast wickets and lifted Zimbabwe 59-5.

When Zimbabwe wins by 10 points, Heratus, who has three wickets before lunch, played 22 matches with Sean Williams in the second leg.

Sikandar turned the table in Sri Lanka together with Peter Moor (age 40), 86 times, at the sixth wicket. Moore fell to the guards Lahiru Kumara.

Sikandar, a Pakistani native, knew very well that another partner in Waller was conducting a Sri Lankan bowling attack, so he used the sweep shot, which was the fifth test 50, very effectively on the spinner.

Former captain Graeme Cremer helped Zimbabwe catch the five maids in the exam and catch the lead.

Herath's left arm spin, however, undid the leg-spinner Cremer (5-125).

The 30th test in the first inning. Herat confirmed the move to the 5th. It was a riot at the start of Jimab 's second essay to win Hamilton Masakaja, Taris Saimusakanda, and Regis Chacaba' s ticket gate.

Offspinner Dilruwan Perera joined forces to gain a valuable wicket for the first inning of fifth starter Craig Ervine as he was having lunch.

While Sri Lanka is being imprisoned by the new Inspector General, Dinesh Chandimal, in a daily series of shocks with Zimbabwe, visitors close their eyes to the first triumph of the islanders.
