Craig Ervine’s patient 151 not out and his 84-run fifth wicket stand with Sikandar Raza helped Zimbabwe recover from a poor start (70 for four wickets) against Sri Lanka on Day 1 of the one-off Test in Colombo on Thursday. Rangana Herath took four wickets to send the Zimbabweans reeling but Ervine’s patience and application helped the Africans turn around. Sri Lanka are looking to usher in Dinesh Chandimal’s era as skipper by bouncing back from a humiliating ODI series defeat to Zimbabwe. Chandimal is leading the islanders in a Test for the first time after Angelo Mathews resigned Wednesday, following Sri Lanka’s shock 3-2 series loss to Zimbabwe, who won the toss and opted to bat today.
