Ind vs Zim 3rd ODI: Second innings action
While initially, everyone thought I would be an easy win for the Men in Blue. But turns out to be a roller-coaster ride of emotions for both the teams as well as the spectators. Sikandar Raza’s knock almost made it possible for Zimbabwe. Efforts were made by other Zimbabwe batters as well. While Sean Williams scored 45 in 46 balls. The first innings star bowler Evans also made an effort by scoring 28 off 36.
While Raza’s fight back made everyone’s heartbeats touch the sky. Indian bowlers kept their calm and made the chase impossible. Avesh Khan picked up 3 for 66 in 9.3 overs, while Axar and Kuldeep Yadav also dismissed 2 Zimbabwe batters.
With this India white-washed the hosts and claimed their 15th consecutive win. Keeping the win streak alive. This tour must have helped India gain a tremendous amount of confidence. We hope that the Men in Blue take the lessons and enter the Asia Cup 2022 with positivity and defend the title.
