Zimbabwe skipper Graeme Cremer claimed three wickets to dent Sri Lanka’s first innings reply on the second day of the one-off Test here on Saturday.

Cremer’s leg-spin and two crucial run outs left Sri Lanka reeling at 293-7 at stumps. Asela Gunaratne (24) and Rangana Herath (5) were at the crease with the hosts still trailing Zimbabwe by 63 runs.

Gunaratne, who came in to bat at No. 8 after sustaining a hamstring injury while fielding, put up sturdy resistance in the final few overs of the day.

Top Sri Lankan batsmen faltered against Cremer’s wily wrist spinners including captain Dinesh Chandimal falling to his opposite number after a well-made 55.
