Sri Lanka wrapped up a comprehensive 2-0 Test series victory over hosts Zimbabwe in Harare earlier today. Just weeks after West Indies’ spinner Devendra Bishoo took eight wickets in a Test innings Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath got in on the act too. Herath recorded second innings figures of 8-63 to finish the match with analysis of 13-152 and 19-287 at 15.10 in the series. There were however some pluses to come out of the series for the hosts, namely the maiden Test century scored by skipper Graeme Cremer who also toiled hard for eleven wickets at 39.63. Another positiveĀ for Zimbabwe was the contribution of newcomer Carl Mumba who claimed eight victims in the series at 37.25 whilst opening batsman Brian Chari (80) and wicketkeeper Peter Moor (79) both produced career best performances with the bat.

Next for the teams is a ODI Tri-Series (No really, a good old Tri-Series) with West Indies the other team involved. Test batsmen Shane Dowrich and Shai Hope, as yet uncapped in ODI cricket are amongst those selected for West Indies.
