India in Zimbabwe ODI Series - 1st ODI

Zimbabwe v India

India won by 6 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

21.5

Mishra to Sibanda, OUT, full and pitched just outside off stump, except this one turns in. Looks like its the googly from Mishra as Sibanda plays outside the line and the umpire raises the finger straight away. Solid knock from Raza who put in the hard yards.

V Sibanda lbw b Mishra 34 (88m 72b 3x4 0x6) SR: 47.22

Zimbabwe 72/1   Sikandar Raza 31* (59b 3x4)   A Mishra 2.5-0-9-1

30.6

Raina to Williams, OUT, Played all around this! Raina pitches this in a little closer to the batsman, but this one is not turning and Williams, who is playing for the turn, ends up playing outside the line as the ball scurries through the gap between pad and bat. Second wicket down for Zimbabwe.

SC Williams b Raina 15 (35m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.72

Zimbabwe 105/2   Sikandar Raza 49* (85b 4x4)   SK Raina 1-0-2-1

33.4

Mishra to Masakadza, OUT, that looked like it was coming. Masakadza cleared his front foot and slogged, trying to hit down the ground. It was the googly from Mishra and it hit middle stump

H Masakadza b Mishra 11 (9m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Zimbabwe 119/3   Sikandar Raza 51* (89b 4x4)   A Mishra 7.4-1-26-2

38.4

Unadkat to Taylor, OUT, Unadkat's picked up his first ODI wicket with a rather ordinary ball. It was short and didn't get high up at all. Taylor had plenty of time to pull it but it looked like he was caught in two minds. He didn't try and smash it for six, and he didn't try and roll his wrists and keep the ball along the ground either. He ended up giving Raina at deep square leg a very simple catch. A soft dismissal.

BRM Taylor c Raina b Unadkat 12 (16m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Zimbabwe 162/4   Sikandar Raza 79* (104b 6x4 2x6)   JD Unadkat 8.4-1-33-1

40.1

Mohammed Shami to Waller, OUT, bowled him! Waller's played inside the line of a good length ball that held its line on off. He was trying to drive on the up and heard the ball clatter into off stump

MN Waller b Mohammed Shami 2 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Zimbabwe 166/5   Sikandar Raza 81* (106b 6x4 2x6)   Mohammed Shami 6.1-1-28-1

43.1

Mishra to Sikandar Raza, OUT, Raza had just lost his composure in the last 20 minutes and he's now been bowled by a short googly. He had moved forward a bit too early and so wasn't balanced as he tried to go back and pull across the line. The ball passed under his shot and hit middle stump

Sikandar Raza b Mishra 82 (184m 112b 6x4 2x6) SR: 73.21

Zimbabwe 176/6   E Chigumbura 9* (12b 2x4)   A Mishra 8.1-1-27-3

46.2

Vinay Kumar to Mutombodzi, OUT, caught at point! A short of a length ball with lots of width outside off. It's there to be cut and Mutombodzi goes hard at the ball. But he doesn't place it and hits it straight to Dhawan at point. A couple of feet on either side and that would have been four

CT Mutombodzi c Dhawan b Vinay Kumar 8 (12m 7b 0x4 1x6) SR: 114.28

Zimbabwe 205/7   E Chigumbura 29* (24b 5x4)   R Vinay Kumar 8.2-1-48-1
