India lose to Zimbabwe

Tri Nation Series: India vs Zimbabwe

India scooped to a new low, despite a heroic effort by Rohit Sharma, by succumbing to a 6-wicket loss to lowly ranked Zimbabwe in the Tri Nation Series today. The batting woes continued as the Indian middle order tottered in the middle of the innings. Sharma’s timely maiden ODI hundred and Jadeja’s intelligent batting did rescue India to a respectable 285, but the others faltered after getting good starts. Royal Challenger Virat Kohli was unceremoniously run out without facing a ball, as he failed to beat a direct throw.

Brief Scores:

India: 285/5 in 50 overs (Rohit Sharma 114)
Zimbabwe: 289/4 in 48.2 overs (Taylor 81, Ervine 67*)

Zimbabwe won by 6 wickets

Tri Nation Series: India vs Zimbabwe

India scooped to a new low, despite a heroic effort by Rohit Sharma, by succumbing to a 6-wicket loss to lowly ranked Zimbabwe in the Tri Nation Series today. The batting woes continued as the Indian middle order tottered in the middle of the innings. Sharma’s timely maiden ODI hundred and Jadeja’s intelligent batting did rescue India to a respectable 285, but the others faltered after getting good starts. Royal Challenger Virat Kohli was unceremoniously run out without facing a ball, as he failed to beat a direct throw.

The Zimbabwe chase began on right note and the batsmen kept their heads cool and flowered at the right moments during the death overs. The key to their victory was keeping wickets intact as they launched allout against the second string Indian bowling. Ashok Dinda and another Royal Challenger Vinay Kumar couldn’t stem the run flow, though Vinay bowled a beauty of a slower to remove the dangerous Coventry to give some hope to India.

However, debutante Craig Ervine produced a stellar of an innings by remaining unbeaten on 67 and guided Zimbabwe to a fantastic victory. Earlier, Brendan Taylor played a steady 81 to lay the foundation for the win. Vinay Kumar was the most successful amongst the Indian bowlers picking up 2 wickets but was also the costliest giving away 51 runs in 8 overs.

Brief Scores:

India: 285/5 in 50 overs (Rohit Sharma 114)
Zimbabwe: 289/4 in 48.2 overs (Taylor 81, Ervine 67*)
