Sri Lanka beat Zimbabwe in one-off Test

Sri Lanka beat Zimbabwe by four wickets after chasing a record 388 on the fifth and final day of the one-off Test Tuesday.

The hosts rode on a crucial 121-run sixth-wicket stand between Asela Gunaratne (80 not out) and Niroshan Dickwella (81) to pull off the team's best-ever run chase.

The win in Colombo was a boost for new Test captain Dinesh Chandimal and eased Sri Lanka's pain after a shock defeat in the one-day series against the minnows.
