The score was 38 for 2 when Craig Ervine came to the crease. Within 10 overs, Zimbabwe would slip further, to 70 for 4, on a track that already seemed to be spitting.

But for the remainder of the day, Ervine resisted Sri Lanka's spinners, and Colombo's sticky heat, to drive his team to a strong position, and himself to 151 not out.

The lower order rallied around him, No. 10 Donald Tiripano - in particular - contributing 24 to an as-yet unbroken 62-run stand.

Zimbabwe ended the day at 344 for 8, when at one time, it appeared as if 200 might be a struggle.
