Chandimal, Mathews steady after quick strikes

Captain Graeme Cremer has picked up three wickets with his leg spin to help Zimbabwe reduce Sri Lanka to 7-293 at the end of Saturday's second day of their one-off Test in Colombo.

But left-handed Ervine, who hit his second test hundred, compiled two half-century partnerships with Sikandar Raza (36) and Malcolm Waller (36) to lead the fightback for Zimbabwe, who beat Sri Lanka 3-2 in the recent one-day global series.

Tiripano's lucky fielding effort came after he got Zimbabwe's first breakthrough in Dimuth Karunaratne (25) in his first over after lunch, ending an 84-run opening partnership. The duo put together 26 runs to try and steady Zimbabwe.
