PointsIndia 2, Zimbabwe 0
  • Match referee JR Reid attempted to change the score of the Zimbabwe total midway through the Indian innings. Television coverage failed to show a wide signalled that was included by the official scorers. The official scorers disagreed with this and did not change the Zimbabwe total from 226 to 225. The scorers' version of the scorecard is showed here.
