So another very comfortable win. Once again Zimbabwe guilty of not making enough runs. That's nine wins out of nine for the side batting first on this tour. India have managed to salvage some pride after the tri-series. But overall, they will be disappointed at having failed to make the final of the tri-series, let alone winning it. Still, a few youngsters will go home richer with the experience.

The presentation may be a bit delayed. We will definitely cover it for you. Stay with us.

The presentation is about to begin.

Chigumbura: "We were about 20 short but the batters did better than yesterday. We've been improving. Captaincy has been good so far and help from other senior players has been good. I'm just one game away from getting back to form. I just want to thank all our supporters."

Raina is the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series: "By the grace of God it has been a great last few weeks. Rohit, Virat and the bowlers have done well. Lot of hard work required in the Asia Cup. I've enjoyed the tour."

That's it from us. Thanks for your company. Cheers!
