(REUTERS)-Dimuth Karunaratne scored a century as Sri Lanka extended their lead over Zimbabwe to 411 runs before rain and bad light ended play on the fourth day of the first Test yesterday.Sri Lanka had moved on to 247 for six when play was called off around 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled close.Karunaratne, the most experienced batsman in an injury-hampered line-up, survived an early drop to score 110 before being caught and bowled by Chris Mpofu just before tea.His 94-run partnership with Dhananjaya de Silva for the fifth wicket lifted Sri Lanka from 117-4.De Silva was the last Sri Lankan wicket to fall, caught for 64 off the bowling of debutant Carl Mumba who has taken 4-50 in the second innings. Sri Lanka are likely to declare early on the final day to give themselves time to bowl the hosts out.Zimbabwe scored 373 in their first innings and will have high hopes of surviving the day and securing a draw in their 100th test since their first against India in 1992.The African side have lost their last six Tests.

Dogboe’s win might have been dominant but this victory over Avalos, who has now lost five of his last six fights, clearly won’t go to his head.There have been suggestions that his rise to the featherweight division might also be temporary, as his height (5′ 4″) put him at a significant disadvantage.Even his trainer, Hunter has indicated that he would like to see the young Ghanaian drop back down.Here are the final moments of Dogboe’s win: Ghanaian boxer, Isaac Dogboe has said he’s just getting started, after returning to the ring with an impressive win over Chris Avalos earlier this week.Referee Russell Mora waved off the fight two minutes 25 seconds into the eighth round to hand Dogboe a TKO victory.The win, which takes Dogboe’s record to 21-2, is sure to be a major confidence booster for the young boxer, who had stated that he was in great shape physically and spiritually prior to the fight.He was coming off two very disappointing losses to Emmanuel Navarrete, which forced him into a break, before he rose to the featherweight division for the Avalos bout.Dogboe who recently started training with Barry Hunter, said after the win that he feels great after his long hiatus“I was off for 14 months. This was a long time coming. I felt great with my new trainer, Barry Hunter. We’re only getting warmed up,” he said.
