Mendis ton helps SL win series

Kusal Mendis’ stubborn knock of 116 not out helped Sri Lanka draw their second Test against Zimbabwe in Harare. Chasing an improbable 361 to win on the last day of the Test, Sri Lanka salvaged a draw ending up at 204/3 in 87 overs at stumps with Mendis remaining at the crease with Dinesh Chandimal who laboured for a 75-ball unbeaten 13. Sri Lanka won the first Test by ten wickets at the same venue on 23 January.
