Zimbabwe's return of 117 for 2 in the middle session was a substantial improvement from their performance in the first session, in which they had lost four wickets for 96 runs.

Herath had struck in his first and third overs to remove the openers, before Lahiru Kumara had Tarisai Musakanda nicking behind, and Sean Williams sent a top-edge to square leg off the bowling of Dilruwan Perera.

However Craig Ervine seems to have maintained his good form from the ODI series and ended the day unbeaten on 151 off 238 deliveries which makes it his second international test hundred.

At the end of play on day one, Zimbabwe were on 344 for the loss 8 wickets with the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka being Rangana Herath with figures of 4/106 in 30overs.
