Zimbabwe Triangular Series, 2010 / Wicket commentary

Zimbabwe Triangular Series - 1st match

Zimbabwe v India

Zimbabwe won by 6 wickets (with 10 balls remaining)

8.6

Mpofu to Karthik, 1 run, OUT, Vijay is run out. Absolutely lazy effort from Vijay and smart work from Taylor. It was tapped past square-leg .. Vijay had stepped out looking for the second run but gets back. Here is where the drama starts. The throw comes to the front of the stumps and Taylor collects and back flicks it to the stumps ...Vijay is so lazy out there .. he was so slow .. and lands his bat down and drags ever so slowly .. unbelievably lazy. And he is run out. Thank you come again ..

M Vijay run out 11 (40m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.83

India 56/1   KD Karthik 19* (31b 2x4)   CB Mpofu 5-1-12-0

9.3

Price to Karthik, OUT, Kohli is run out. It was reverse paddled towards short third man and they decide to get across for the risky single. Chigumbura, who has had an awful time with the ball so far, fires in a lovely direct hit .. Kohli tried to dive back into the crease but couldn't beat the throw. Out without facing a ball. In street cricket, if you had owned the bat, you would have taken it and walked off in a huff!

V Kohli run out 0 (3m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

India 57/2   KD Karthik 19* (34b 2x4)   RW Price 2.3-0-8-0
