Sri Lanka successfully chased down a record target of 388 to beat Zimbabwe in the one-off Test in Colombo.

Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella and Asela Gunaratne all hit half-centuries to complete the highest ever chase in Asia and the fifth best of all time.

Victory had looked beyond Sri Lanka when Sikandar Raza (127) rescued Zimbabwe from 59-5 in their second innings and took them to 377 all out.

But Gunaratne batted for almost four hours on the final day to seal the win.
