Jadhav, Pandey set up 3-0 India sweep

A fifth-wicket partnership of 144 between Kedar Jadhav, who made a maiden hundred, and Manish Pandey, who made 71 on debut, revived India to 276 for 5 after another top-order stumble, after which Zimbabwe crumbled for 193 to hand the visitors a 3-0 sweep

Scorecard summary
India276/5(50 overs)
Zimbabwe193/10(42.4 overs)

Rahane collects the trophy and is joined by his team-mates. That is that from the ODI series. Do tune in for the two-match T20 series. Until then, this is Deivarayan Muthu signing off.

Ajinkya Rahane, India captain: The partnership between Manish and Jadhav was crucial for us. I am very happy for the boys. They were hungry and up for the series. Rayudu got his hundred in the first game, Vijay in the second and Kedar here. The bowlers chipped in as well. Rayudu will be okay and will be back in action. He has been doing well for us and is our crucial member of the team.

Elton Chigumbura, Zimbabwe captain: It is disappointing again, especially with the bat. Other than the first game, we have failed with the bat. It is frustrating and we need to make use of situations and start winning games. We have to play our best cricket and be positive in the T20s.

Ambati Rayudu is the Man of the Series.

Kedar Jadhav, Man of the Match: It is a great feeling and I just want to thank my family. Ajinkya and the support staff have been backing me. The wicket was seaming a bit and I took my time to settle.

Presentation:

4:30pm: Chibhabha played some percentage strokes and built the chase with his second successive fifty before his wicket sparked a collapse. The hosts tumbled to 179 for 9 and eventually 193 all out from 160 for 4; the Indian bowlers sharing the spoils. Harbhajan flighted the ball generously while Binny got it to wobble around. The win, India's biggest of the series, though, was set up by Jadhav's maiden ODI century.

Sarthak Agarwal: "First series win in 2015 for India. Binny and Rayudu were big takeaways from the series."'

Avi: "Muthu, how do you rate Rahane's captaincy during the series?" -- For the record, Rahane is only the third debut Indian captain after Kapil Dev and Gautam Gambhir to have led their teams to bilateral ODI series whitewashes.
