Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI, Harare Sports Club, Harare, November 20 2008, Final Scorecard

November 21st, 2008 Posted in One Day Match, Scorecard
Muttiah Muralitharan is the Man of the Match for his figures of 4/14 from 4 overs. 

A rather soporific chase from the Sri Lankans but an expected result. Zimbabwe were involved in one of the most remarkable collapses, losing 7 wickets in 4 overs for only 3 runs, thanks to Murali and Mendis. Sri Lanka lost Tharanga early but Udawatte and Sangakkara put on a big partnership to rule out any chance of an upset.
