Zimbabwe sets 127 for India

HARARE(PTI):Once again Zimbabwe collapsed against some fine bowling from the Indian bowlers during the second One-day international match in Harare on Monday. Zimbabwe were bundled out for 126 in less than 35 overs.

Indian players celebrate a wicket during the first ODI against Zimbabwe in Harare on Saturday.

Put into bat, Zimbabwe lost three quick wickets as Barinder Sran and Dhawal Kulkarni rocked the top-order with some fine exhibition of fast bowling.

Later, Raza and Sibanda added 67 runs for the fourth wicket.

Chahal removed both Sikandar Raza and Chigumbara off two balls to put Zimbabwe on the back foot. With the removal of Sibanda, the Zimbabwe batsmen succumbed to some fine bowling from the Indians.

Williams who came in place of Craige Ervine has injured his finger and this added pressure on the Zimbabwe down order batsmen.

Earlier, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to field against Zimbabwe.

India, leading the series 1-0, are unchanged while Zimbabwe have brought in Shaun Williams in place of Craige Ervine.


Zimbabwe: Peter Moor, Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Sean Williams, Vusi Sibanda, Sikandar Raza, Elton Chigumbura, Richmond Mutumbami, Graeme Cremer, Tendai Chatara and Taurai Muzarabani
