Zimbabwe v Netherlands - Action Replay

A nail-biting thriller at Newlands in Cape Town, a do-or-die match for both Sri Lanka and West Indies, and in the end Sri Lanka won by 6 runs. It just couldn’t have got any close than this, a remarkable day/night game that went down to the wire. It had all the trappings of a thriller, action, blood, heroics and what not! Sri Lanka won the crucial toss and elected to bat first. The 1996 World Cup champions lost their first wicket in the fourth over of the match, Marvan Atapattu was brilliantly run out by Pedro Collins off his own bowling. Sanath Jayasuriya played a circumspect knock, hardly threatening to take the bowling apart.
