THARANGA ENDS WAIT FOR SECOND TON
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.
