    Match summary

    Dominating performance by India. Abhishek Sharma set up the tone with a terrific 100 in just his second T20I. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rinku Singh then helped India finish on a high, taking the total to 234/2. 

    Zimbabwe was never in the chase as it lost four wickets inside PowerPlay. Avesh Khan and Mukesh Kumar took three wickets each. India has leveled the five-match series 1-1. Three more games left. 

    100 runs is India’s fifth-highest win by margin of runs in T20Is.

  • July 07, 2024 19:41
    ZIM 134/10 in 18.4 overs

    Mukesh is back. Jongwe goes for a slog but is beaten. Full toss and Jongwe hits it straight. Misfield by Abhishek in the deep and it goes for four. Another full toss and is put away for four. It’s a no ball as well. OUT! Jongwe slices the ball straight deep backward point. All over. India wins by 100 runs!

  • July 07, 2024 19:36
    ZIM 123/9 in 18 overs

    Avesh for his third. Too wide outside off despite Jongwe moving towards the ball. Strike rotation continues. OUT! Muzarabani gets a top edge and an easy catch for the mid on inside circle. 

    Tendai Chatara is the last man in. Four runs and a wicket in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:31
    ZIM 119/8 in 17 overs

    Bishnoi is back. OUT! Madhevere is gone. He comes down the track, it was a straighter one by Bishnoi and goes through the gate. Leg stump is uprooted. Madhevere falls for 43 off 39 balls. 

    Muzarabani the new man in. How long can Zimbabwe stay at the crease, it’s a test of Indian bowlers on how quickly can they wrap things up. Four runs and a wicket in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:27
    IND 115/7 in 16 overs

    Sundar is back. Short ball and Jongwe pulls the ball towards midwicket for four. Nice shot that. India would be hoping to wrap up the tail soon. That’s what was lacking yesterday as well. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:23
    ZIM 105/7 in 15 overs

    Abhishek continues. Spun away from the right handed Jongwe, who is beaten. Jurel appeal for stumping. But the foot is grounded, third umpire rules. SIX! Madhevere keeps the home crowd going with a slog sweep. 100-up for Zimbabwe. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:20
    ZIM 96/7 in 14 overs

    Riyan Parag bowling for the first time in T20Is. Starts off with an off spinner. Jongwe takes a single on the second ball. Madhevere reverse sweeps and gets a double. Didn’t time it perfectly but just enough. Five runs from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:18
    ZIM 91/7 in 13 overs

    Abhishek Sharma is back. Madhevere welcomes him with a four towards extra cover. Eight runs in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:13
    IND 83/7 in 12 overs

    Sundar. Masakadza taps the ball and looks for a quick single but Jurel hits directly at the bowler’s end. He goes for three-ball 1. 

    Luke Jongwe the new man in. India heading towards a massive win. Jongwe smartly ramps over the keeper and gets a boundary. Smart shot. Made use of the spin. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:06
    ZIM 76/6 in 11 overs

    Bishnoi continues. Plenty of attempted sweeps against Bishnoi. OUT! Madande is given out LBW. Quicker one and stayed on backfoot to play it. Got beaten and umpire had no problem giving it. Madande has reviewed it though. Decision stays. Zimbabwe is six down. Four runs and a wicket in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 19:02
    ZIM 72/5 in 10 overs

    Sundar continues. Full toss and Campbell goes for a slog sweep but doesn’t time it well and is caught in the deep. He had to do something else the chase wasn’t going anywhere. Scored a 10 off 18 balls. 

    Clive Madande at number seven. Three singles and a wicket in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:59
    ZIM 69/4 in 9 overs

    Bishnoi. Campbell attempts a reverse sweep but gets beaten. An almost celebrappeal by keeper and the bowler but umpire says not out. Gill is not interested to review as well. Plenty of attempts for sweep and reverse sweeps by Campbell. He finally hits one and gets a double towards square leg. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:55
    ZIM 67/4 in 8 overs

    Washington Sundar with his off spin now. Short ball and Madhevere cuts him for four! Confidence booster shot for him. Strike rotation continues between the two batters. That has been key here as we saw in the first innings as well. Eight runs from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:52
    ZIM 59/4 in 7 overs

    Ravi Bishnoi into the attack. Down the leg and keeper appeals for caught behind. No response from the umpire. Googly attack by Bishnoi! Just one run in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:47
    ZIM 58/4 in 6 overs

    Avesh. Squares of Campbell! The ball just nips away from the left hander. Boundaries not coming as frequently as they should. Madhevere is surviving. Unable to time most of his shots. Campbell cuts, misfield by the fielder at extra cover and the batters run a double. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:41
    ZIM 52/4 in 5 overs

    Mukesh continues. A half-hearted appeal for LBW on the first ball. Johnathan Campbell takes a single off his first ball. Still a bit of lateral movement for pacers. Madhevere hasn’t been able to get set. Quite a few plays and misses. Inside edge and Madhevere gets a boundary! 

  • July 07, 2024 18:33
    ZIM 46/4 in 4 overs

    Avesh Khan into the attack. Dion Myers is the new man in. 

    An appeal for LBW against Madhevere but umpire isn’t interested. India takes the review. Wickets umpire’s call. So a good review by India but Madhevere is saved by a marginal call. OUT! Myers is gone for a golden duck. Length ball and Myer hits the ball straight to cover fielder inside circle. 

    Sikandar Raza. Down the leg wide and brilliantly kept by Jurel behind the stumps. Raza is off the mark with a boundary. Down the leg and he guides it towards fine leg. OUT! Raza is gone too. Short ball and Raza isn’t able to keep the ball down. Gloves it and the ball goes straight to the keeper. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:26
    ZIM 40/2 in 3 overs

    Mukesh continues. Madhevere takes a double towards leg side. Short ball and down the leg also, will be called wide. Madhevere almost chops on! Gets a single. SIX! Bennett slaps the length ball back into the midwicket stand. Huge six. And another! Full ball this time and he launches it straight over the bowler’s head. Fantastic batting by Bennett. OUT! Tries to slog towards leg side but misses it and ball crashes into the stumps. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:22
    ZIM 24/1 in 2 overs

    Abhishek Sharma with his left arm spin now. Bennett takes a single on the first ball. SIX! Bennett gets into the act quickly. Full ball and he launches the ball straight. Brilliant shot. Down the leg: beats the batter as well as the keeper and it goes for five wides. Now Bennett cuts late and past short third fielder for four! Smart batting. 

  • July 07, 2024 18:16
    ZIM 5/1 in 1 over

    Mukesh Kumar with the new ball. FOUR! Innocent Kaia slogs it towards square leg for four! Brilliant start. They need plenty of those. OUT! Kaia loses his off stump on the third ball of the innings. Just a hint of swing into the right hander but the ball finds plenty of gap between bat and pad. 

    Brian Bennett in at three. Five runs and a wicket in that over. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:59
    IND 234/2 in 20 overs

    Jongwe to bowl the last over. Gaikwad begins the over with a sweep over fine leg for four. Full toss and easy pickings for him. Hits the next ball towards long on for a single. Rinku gets an under edge but the ball goes past short fine for four! Nothing going Zimbabwe’s way. SIX! Rinku pulls the short ball just over the square leg boundary. He ends the innings with a SIX! Straight over the bowler’s head. 

    Rinku remains unbeaten on 48 off 22 while Gaikwad scored 77 not out in 47 balls. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:53
    IND 213/2 in 19 overs

    Muzarabani. Gaikwad is beaten as he tries to make room towards leg side. Gets a single on the next ball. Too wide outside off for Rinku. Rinku launches the ball into the sky. A HUGE SIX over long on. 104m that. 200-up for India with that massive hit. Top edge and Rinku adds two more to the total. Another SIX! Powerful strike that towards midwicket. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:48
    IND 197/2 in 18 overs

    Chatara closing out his quota of overs. Gaikwad smacks the ball straight past the bowler and gets a boundary! SIX! Fuller ball and Gaikwad lofts it over long on. Another four! Slower bouncer and Gaikwad gets a thick outside edge that goes over short third fielder. And another. This is beautifully timed past backward point for four. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:44
    IND 177/2 in 17 overs

    Jongwe for his third. FOUR! Rinku Singh hits the wide yorker past backward point. Terrific shot. Jongwe trying his best to keep the ball away from Rinku. Gaikwad end the over with a four towards cover. He reaches his fifty in 38 balls. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:38
    IND 165/2 in 16 overs

    Muzarabani is back. Rinku cuts for a single. Gaikwad hasn’t been able to hit shots at will so far. SIX! Rinku gets going with a beautiful shot over cover. Came down the track for that. Brilliantly timed. India will look to go close to 210 from here. Gaikwad slogs the length ball towards long on but the fielder drops it! To make things worse, it goes for four. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:34
    IND 152/2 in 15 overs

    Rinku Singh is the new man in. 

    Chatara for his third over. Rinku is off the mark with a single. Slightly quiet over now for India, Zimbabwe will be glad. Five runs from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:28
    IND 147/2 in 14 overs

    Masakadza for his second. SIX! Abhishek gets one in the slot and he goes over midwicket. Follows it up with another SIX. Charges down and slogs it over square leg. SIX AND HUNDRED FOR ABHISHEK SHARMA! It took him just 46 balls to get to the milestone. Lower full toss hit swept over fine leg. OUT! Abhishek departs on the next ball. Once again tries to go over but gets a top edge. Terrific knock though. Abhishek is gone for 100 off 47 balls. Seven fours and eight sixes in that innings.

  • July 07, 2024 17:22
    IND 126/1 in 13 overs

    Raza is back and Abhishek launches him straight for a SIX! Brilliant batting this. Now he goes over cover and gets another boundary! Fielder had a slight chance to catch it though. Now Gaikwad too joins the party. Sweeps the ball behind square leg for four. Sweetly timed. Huge appeal for a caught behind against Abhishek and umpire gives it. He has reviewed it though. Drifting down the leg. Could be an unlucky dismissal. No spike. Decision is turned. Not out.

  • July 07, 2024 17:19
    IND 110/1 in 12 overs

    Masakadza into the attack. Strike rotation has been on point today. Abhishek does try to go straight over the bowler’s head but doesn’t the ball well and gets a double only. Abhishek isn’t able to time the ball well in this over. Eight runs from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:13
    IND 102/1 in 11 overs

    Dion Myers into the attack. Plenty of medium pacers in the Zimbabwe squad. Starts off with a wide. Short ball and Abhishek pulls it for four! Gentle medium pace. Too easy for Abhishek. SIX and fifty for Abhishek!! Half-century in 33 balls. Another short ball pulled over fine leg. And another four. Once again over fine leg. Too easy for Abhishek. Full ball and lofts the ball over cover for a SIX! Ends the over with another boundary. Thick edge past short fine leg. 28 runs in the over.

  • July 07, 2024 17:09
    IND 74/1 in 10 overs

    Jongwe. Gaikwad drives the first ball for four. Very nice cover drive that. Another drive and another four! This time square of the wicket. Strike rotation continues for the rest of the over. 11 runs from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:05
    IND 63/1 in 9 overs

    Raza. Short ball and Abhishek slaps the ball towards midwicket for four. Follows it up with a SIX! Comes down the track and plays inside out over cover. Superb shot. While Abhishek has tried to force things, Gaikwad continues to focus on strike rotation. 

  • July 07, 2024 17:00
    IND 49/1 in 8 overs

    Luke Jongwe into the attack. Abhishek takes a single on the first ball. Gaikwad pushes the ball towards leg side and gets another single. You can see Abhishek trying to force things. And as I say this, he lofts the ball high in the air and the fielder at long off comes under the ball and DROPS IT! That was a sitter. Lucky for Abhishek. Jongwe drifts down the leg and Gaikwad sends the ball past short fine leg for four. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:57
    IND 40/1 in 7 overs

    Sikander Raza into the attack. Gaikwad takes a single on the first ball. Abhishek gets a single on the third ball. Some good bowling and conditions have to do with India’s approach in the PowerPlay. Four singles from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:52
    IND 36/1 in 6 overs

    Chatara again. Abhishek ALMOST chops it onto the stumps. Gets a single though. Gaikwad gets him back on strike on the next ball. India looking to rotate strike more rather than hitting boundaries. Seven runs from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:48
    IND 29/1 in 5 overs

    Muzarabani is back. Abhishek taps the ball towards point and takes a quick single. Gaikwad was in trouble had it hit the stumps. Another terrific over so far by Muzarabani. Just one run from the over. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:43
    IND 28/1 in 4 overs

    Change in bowling. Tendai Chatara into the attack. Gaikwad defends the first ball. Takes a single on the next ball. Abhishek is beaten on the third ball and takes a single on the next. Quiet over so far, one ball to go. On the pads and Gaikwad pushes the ball towards square leg and gets a boundary. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:40
    IND 22/1 in 3 overs

    Bennett continues. Smacked away for four on the first ball. Punched away towards cover. Follows it up with another boundary. Almost a replay of the shot on the first ball. Terrific hitting. Gaikwad is also off the mark with a single towards long on. Abhishek lofts on the last ball towards long off and gets a double. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:35
    IND 10/1 in 2 overs

    Blessing Muzarabani into the attack. OUT! Gill is gone. Full ball and Gill tries to go over mid on but ends up hitting the ball straight to the fielder. Maybe too full to hit over the fielder, Gill might think now. 

    Ruturaj Gaikwad in at three. First ball hits straight to the bowler but he drops it! Lucky escape on the first ball. Gaikwad taking his time. No run from the over so far in five balls. An LBW shout against Gaikwad on the last ball. Umpire says not out. No review taken. Maiden over. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:30
    IND 10/0 in 1 over

    Brian Bennett to open the bowling with his off spin. Shubman Gill pushes the ball towards long on for a single on the first ball. Abhishek is off the mark with a SIX! What a way to get going in T20I cricket. Account opened. Short ball and pulled over square leg. 10 runs from the first over. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:27
    All set

    Abhishek Sharma and Shubman Gill open the innings for India. Team Zimbabwe is in a huddle. Umpires are in the middle. 

  • July 07, 2024 16:11
    Pitch report

    Same pitch that was used yesterday. Spinners bowled in the good length area. The wickets are coming from a back of a length on this pitch. The fuller the ball, batting becomes easier, reckons Abhinav Mukund.
