    Just before the 5 match ODI series starts many people thought Zimbabwe should not allow to play test cricket at all.Look what they did? They kick out number 6 ODI SRILANKA beating them in their own country 3/2, by scoring 300 plus 3 times out of 5 games.

    I wish them good luck in test match.Angelo Matthews steps down from captaincy so Lanka appoints
    Dinesh Chandimal as new test captain for Zimbabwe series.
