Harare: Sri Lanka were heading for victory in the second test against Zimbabwe today despite another battling half-century by home captain Andy Flower.

Zimbabwe, needing 258 to avoid an innings defeat, were 161 for six at tea on the fourth day, with flower 61 not out to follow his first innings of 74. Starting the day at 34 for three, Zimbabwe batted carefully to lose only one more wicket before lunch.

That went down in the eighth over of the day when Neil Johnson tried to drive paceman Nuwan Zoysa and was caught low down by Marvan Atapattu in the gully for 14.
