Sri Lanka 317 for 4 (Kusal Perera 110, Kaushal Silva 94, Karunaratne 56, Cremer 3-82) v ZimbabweScorecard and ball-by-ball details Kusal Perera preyed on a sub-par bowling effort, a docile Harare surface and sloppy fielding to hammer his maiden Test ton, a 121-ball 110, as Sri Lanka racked up 317 for 4 against Zimbabwe on the first day.Perera, batting at No. 3, signalled his aggressive approach from the outset. Two wild swings early in his innings, one of which took the outside edge, didnt alter his tactics. He plundered a tiring bowling attack for 15 fours and two sixes, including taking debutant Carl Mumba for five fours in an over after the tea break.Perera was supremely confident against anything too full, often muscling boundaries straight including two sixes to the long-on area off Hamilton Masakadza in the space of three balls. The bowlers natural response was to drop short but a slow surface helped him read the length early and execute the pull efficiently in the arc between square leg and fine leg.Despite Pereras dominance, it would have been the Sri Lanka openers who may have worn the widest smiles on their journey to Zimbabwe. In their home series against Australia, Sri Lankas opening stands amounted to 27 in six innings, an average of 4.5. In their first Test since that series, Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne saw off the swinging new ball and added a 123-run stand against a harmless bowling attack.Silva was typically staunch in defense and capitalised on the occasional short or overpitched delivery. After a slow start, Silva found his run-scoring rhythm towards the latter part of the first session.After the lunch break, Silva made a slight change to his technique: he chose to play the ball later and use cross-batted shots - pulls and cuts behind square - to accumulate his runs. He struck 11 boundaries, most of which came via errant lines. Just after the tea break, a loss in concentration cost him his second successive ton, shimmying down and chipping part-timer Malcolm Waller to mid-on for 94.Karunaratne was repeatedly dismissed in the same fashion against Australia: playing around his front pad and missing Mitchell Starcs straight deliveries. He fell over against Zimbabwes accurate seamers too, but was able to manipulate the midwicket region because of the difference in pace. The bowlers werent helped by a sluggish pitch that got slower as the day wore on.An error in judgement at this level can often be fatal. Karunaratne, who was looking impregnable on 56, went back to turn an innocuous delivery on the pads to square leg but reached the ball a fraction early. A leading edge was snaffled up at midwicket.Zimbabwes seamers had extracted enough from the surface and in the air in the first hour, but Sri Lankas openers were disciplined. Many deliveries were left alone and a few even beat the bat. After that though, lateral movement ceased and they made use of the favourable batting conditions.Sri Lanka may not have had as much success had Zimbabwe held on to their chances. Mumba pitched his first ball on middle - the second over of the day - and got it to swerve away just enough to take the shoulder of Karunaratnes bat. Williams backtracked from gully but couldnt cling on to his overhead one-handed attempt.In the second session, Zimbabwe dropped three catches. Wicketkeeper Peter Moor spilled two of them standing up to the stumps, off Perera and Silva. Perera was given another reprieve when Malcolm Waller spilled a chance while running in from long-on.Cremer lent some respectability to Zimbabwes day by having Kusal Mendis caught behind off a vicious legbreak. Towards the end, he also had Perera caught at cover to finish with figures of 3 for 82 in an otherwise substandard day.

PHOENIX -- One team coming off an embarrassing loss and one team coming off a heartbreaking defeat meet up when the Detroit Pistons visit the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.The Pistons (4-3) opened a four-game road trip Monday with a 114-82 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, extending their losing streak at Staples Center -- where the Clippers and Lakers play -- to 11 games. The last time Detroit won a game in that building was Nov. 12, 2010, when they beat the Clippers.The Suns (2-6) rallied from as many as 18 points down Tuesday but were unable to get over the hump in a 124-121 loss at the Portland Trail Blazers. The guard tandem of Eric Bledsoe (31 points) and Devin Booker (23) combined for 54 points, but the Suns couldnt overcome a 71-point backcourt effort from Portlands Damian Lillard (38 points) and CJ McCollum (33).Detroit hasnt won on the road this season and didnt come close to changing that Monday, shooting just 36 percent from the field and falling behind by 30 points at the half.For me, this is a game I will always keep in my mind until at least we fix it, Detroit swingman Stanley Johnson told the Detroit Free Press. This is straight-out embarrassing.The Pistons gave up 62 first-half points and didnt reach 50 themselves until late in the third quarter.We didnt have any patience to move the ball, Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy told the Free Press. We didnt execute, we didnt screen. Youre not going to get stuff easy against that defense. I didnt have our guys ready to play against that offense. I thinkk that was pretty obvious.ddddddddddddThe Suns obviously were disappointed with the end result at Portland, but they were played with their comeback.We never give up, Booker said. Its a good team over there. Every time we play (the Blazers), its going to be a war. They got the edge tonight, but next time were going to be ready.The Phoenix rally was spurred by forwards P.J. Tucker (11 points, nine rebounds and five steals) and rookie Dragan Bender (10 points, a plus-19 in his 23 minutes on the floor). Phoenix they tied the game with an 11-0 run with eight minutes to play. The Suns were within a point twice in the final 20 seconds before falling short.The Suns went 1-2 on a three-game road trip that began with an overtime win against the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday but ended with road losses to the Lakers and Blazers.Booker, 20, had 38 points against the Pelicans and 39 against the Lakers, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to have back-to-back games of at least 38 points.Detroit got some good news on the off-day Monday. Guard Reggie Jackson returned to basketball activities for the first time since receiving platelet-rich plasma injections in his left knee and right thumb just before preseason. His return to the lineup is still up in the air.I got up some shots and got to move around a little bit, Jackson told the Free Press. I did a few cuts, but nothing real major.
