Zimbabwe boosted by double strike Tharanga impresses for Sri Lanka
(40 minutes later)
Zimbabwe struck twice in three overs as Sri Lanka reached 51-2 after 11 overs of their Champions Trophy qualifier. Upul Tharanga continued his fine form to lay the platform for a big total in Sri Lanka's Champions Trophy qualifying game against Zimbabwe in Ahmedabad.
Upul Tharanga, who hit a century against Bangladesh, was again in fine form but Elton Chigumbura's brilliant fielding ran out Sanath Jayasuriya. The opener, who hit a century against Bangladesh, was 68 not out off 86 balls as his side reached 113-2 off 25 overs.
Anthony Ireland then saw skipper Mahela Jayawardene chase a wide one behind. He was supported by Kumar Sangakkara (22no) after Zimbabwe had been boosted by taking two wickets in three overs.
Ruchira Perera replaced Chaminda Vaas for Sri Lanka, while Tawanda Mupariwa came in for Ed Rainsford for Zimbabwe - who lost their opener to West Indies. Elton Chigumbura brilliantly ran out Sanath Jayasuriya and Anthony Ireland had Mahela Jayawardene caught behind.
