Zimbabwe have ended the Day Two on a very satisfying note as they saw a Brian Chari and Craig Ervine provide an unbeaten stand of 109 runs for the third wicket. They need to carry on in the same manner as they have displayed some gritty batting quality which they have displayed in the final session of Day Two. They were a little shaky in the start against the wily spin of Rangana Herath as he was on fire after scalping two wickets in a matter of three balls. But they batted out these tough overs with sheer sincerity and were rewarded soon.

Chari was being very calm at one end while Ervine was blasting off the bad as well as the good deliveries. The visitors, on the other hand, looked pale and clueless towards the closing stage of the game. They got in various bowling changes but none of them worked as both batsmen had settled in quite well.
