    2.4 gone. 135 kph, shortish delivery on middle. Not short enough to pull again but Chamu tries. Doesn't quite time it, doesn't get the elevation, doesn't keep it down. What he does is find the midwicket fielder who takes a good, reverse-cupped catch over his head 17/1
    8.5 given. Flat again on off and middle, Masakadza gets low to sweep but misses. Slides on and hits Masakadza on the pads in front of off. Will skid on and hit the stumps says the umpire. Axar has a wicket. Zim two down. Struggled for fluency in that knock 57/2
    10.3 given. Another one. Sibanda this time. Slower ball on middle and leg, straight and full. Sibanda misses a flick and is struck in front. Another lbw. Zimbabwe in trouble now. 60/3

    17.1 taken. Big wicket. Waller goes. And India have a wicket. Back of a length on off, Waller backs away, tries to steer he ball over short third man but doesn't get the elevation. Bumrah leaps over his head and clings onto a tough chance. 104/5
    19.6 taken and India have won. What a game. Low full toss outside off, Chigumbura toe-ends it to cover and Chahal takes the catch in front of him. India win the series 2-1. 135/6
