Commentary

That's all we have from the fourth ODI, stay tuned for further news and analysis from Liam Brickhill, who is in Bulawayo. This is Vishal Dikshit signing off on behalf of George Binoy and Rohan Sharma as well. We'll see you on Aug 3, Saturday, for the last match of the series. Goodbye and good luck!

Not surprisingly, India have taken a 4-0 lead here. Zimbabwe's batting crumbled again after they were put in to bat and managed only 144. Debutant Mohit Sharma capitalised on his opportunity with two wickets but the same can't be said of Pujara who managed 13 runs. After he was bowled, Raina and Rohit completed the chase hassle-free. Zimbabwe have a lot of work to do here, particularly in the batting section.

It's time for the presentation now:

Brendan Taylor: "Pretty frustrating on a batting wicket. We did all the hardwork but couldn't execute it there. We keep getting ourselves out and capitulating, it's difficult to come back from that. We try and keep the morale up and fortunately there's one more game. We've had our chances but couldn't grab them."

Virat Kohli: "Our bowlers did a great job and then Rohit and Raina finished it off well. Jadeja is a good allrounder and he showed what he can do with the wickets and that run-out. Mohit was accurate form ball one which was pleasing to see as it was his first game. We are really proud of him. We want to end on a high and finish the series properly [5-0]."

Mohit Sharma has been named Man of the Match for his 2 for 26: "I'm really glad and I thank the skipper and coach who gave me this chance. I just kept things simple and stuck to the basics. I'm looking forward to more games and hope I do well in the next match."

Sai Ashish: "I don't think there is much wrong with DRS. Its all with umpires not being able to take correct decisions. Also in this case DRS is correct as Hotspot didn't show any edge rightly but it is dharmasena who gave a wrong decision." Even though there is no DRS in this series and Dharmasena is in Manchester right now, I don't disagree with you.

Venkatesh: "@Arun: Pujara can play the opener role a lot better than Rohit if he is given at least 10% of opportunities that Rohit has got so far."

"Is it true that Team India do not play any international matches until October, after this series???????" That's right, Manu. India will host Australia in October for a T20 and seven ODIs after the Champions League T20

Scan: "@Arun, well said - too many people are constantly on players back - some people are never satisfied. Even Dhawan was criticised last week #behappy"

Dhaval: "@ Arun, The key word is "IF", If he stays he will make it up but Rohit dosent always do that and he wastes time and then gets out to a rash shot.. thats why you cant compare MSD with RS!"

Arun: "@all, who were going after Rohit for his slow batting, see his SR at the end. if he stays then he makes up for his slow batting. When MSD does the same all would praise him for taking India behind the line. Poor Rohit."
