New Delhi: A terrific spell of seam bowling by Amit Bhandari and Shib Shankar Paul wrecked Zimbabwe 'A' and put India 'A' on top on the first day of the four-day cricket match in Harare. Paul scalped six for 46 while Bhandari claimed four for 65 to skittle out Zimbabwe 'A' for a modest 200 in the first innings. Captain and wicketkeeper batsman Tatenda Taibu top scored for the hosts with 53 while Alester Maregwede made a vital 50. The two added 61 runs for the fourth wicket to rescue the team from a precarious 41 for three. The other notable contribution for the Zimbabweans came from E Chigumbara who made a valuable 35 and was associated in a 68-run stand for the fifth wicket. At stumps, the Indians were 17 without loss in six overs. Aakash Chopra was batting on three with Gautam Gambhir not out on nine. India 'A' had beaten the Zimbabweans by 33 runs in a one-day match on Sunday. (PTI)
