THA­RANGA ENDS WAIT FOR SEC­OND TON

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

TEN YEARS af­ter scor­ing his maiden Test cen­tury, Upul Tha­ranga notched up his sec­ond as Sri Lanka con­tin­ued to make all the run­ning in the first Test against Zim­babwe at Harare Sports Club. Tha­ranga’s first cen­tury had come against Bangladesh in March 2006, and his 110 not out on Sun­day al­lowed Sri Lanka to amass 537 all out on the sec­ond day in Harare. Hav­ing dropped seven catches in the field, and seen three du­bi­ous um­pir­ing calls go against them, Zim­babwe man­aged to rouse them­selves with the bat and go to stumps on 88 for one. While opener Brian Chari fell in Ran­gana Herath’s first over, Tino Ma­woyo reached the close un­beaten on 41, while Hamilton Masakadza was 33 not out.
