Live and ball-by-ball details
Sri Lanka's openers began the chase of 388 with some fluency, moving the score to 56 for no loss by tea, after Zimbabwe's stubborn lower order had added 125 runs to their overnight score, having batted for 39.1 overs on the fourth day.
On display from Dimuth Karunaratne and Upul Tharanga was a positive frame of mind. Some balls turned, others didn't, and both edges of the bat were beaten during 18 overs of the fourth innings so far, but drives, cuts and lap-sweeps continued to be played. In contrast to the first innings, Karunaratne provided the innings' impetus, picking up effortless runs through the outfield to make 29 from 44 balls before the break. Tharanga, who had sped away early in his innings on day two, was more watchful this time, making 27 off 64 balls.
