Match Ended   
161 (38.1/50)
167/5 (25.4/50)
India beat Zimbabwe by 5 wickets
That's it then from this game and it is India who have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. There is however one more game left in the series and Zimbabwe will be looking to finish off with a win. The 3rd and final ODI will be played on Monday, 22nd August and will begin at 12.45 pm IST (7.15 am GMT) but our build-up will begin sooner. Do join us then. Till then, take care and goodbye!
KL Rahul, the Indian captain, says that they bat deep and it was good that a few batters got some time in the middle. Smiles and says that changing his batting order didn't work. Tells that it was important for him to take some confidence from this series but it didn't happen for him in this match. Adds that Zimbabwe have a few quality bowlers in their ranks and shares that he watched Zimbabwe's series against Bangladesh. Calls it a good challenge for their batters. Informs that it will be a rest day for them on Sunday. Thanks the spectators for turning up and supporting them.
Sanju Samson is the Player of the Match for his unbeaten 43 and three catches behind the stumps. Says that when you spend time in the middle, you feel really good. Adds that he is happy to take three catches but at the same time smiles and reminds us that he missed out on a couple of chances as well. Mentions that in this match their fast bowlers picked up the good areas fairly early and he loved his time behind the stumps.
Regis Chakabva, the captain of Zimbabwe, says that they had a really good fight on the field and is happy that they picked a few wickets. Regrets that there were not enough runs on the board. Admits that their batting lacks execution and hopes to improve. Praises his bowlers for coming out charging and hitting the good areas.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
There was no improvement shown by Zimbabwe in this game with the bat. They lost a crucial toss and their batting didn't perform to its true potential. There were plenty of avoidable shots played and the end result was 161 all out, 28 less than the first ODI. Unless and until this facet of their game puts in the hard yards, there is no hope for them, even in the last ODI. India, on the other hand, got the chance to give some exposure to their middle-order batters and achieved most of the things from this contest.
The approach from India in the chase was different compared to the first ODI. Their focus was more on scoring at a quick rate rather than being sedate and preserving the wickets. The move to use KL Rahul as an opener and give him some much-needed 'game time' didn't work as he departed cheaply. Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill though played sublime knocks and displayed their form once again. The rest of the work of closing the game was done with ease by the stand between Sanju Samson and Deepak Hooda, who got out with the victory in sight.
An easy win for India, yet again, but this time around, they spent a few wickets to reach the target. Unlike their batters, the Zimbabwean bowlers improved their show with the ball, showing good pace and bowling with a lot of heart. That said, the consistency factor was still missing, and this is something they will need to improve. Right then, 14 wins in a row for India now in ODIs, against Zimbabwe, and they've sealed the deal here.

Drinks break. India have lost four wickets in this chase but they are in full control. 65 needed more for them to take an unsurpassable lead in the series. Their approach with the bat is different from the first ODI. The Indian batters have looked to play more shots and score at a brisk rate. Sanju Samson walks in next and we expect him to bat with positive intent as well. Tanaka Chivanga is back on...

OUT! CAUGHT! Chivanga takes his revenge and roars in delight. An excellent change in length from him to surprise the batter. He digs it in short around off at 81 mph and hurries up Dhawan who shapes up to pull. He completely mistimes his shot in the air and Innocent Kaia moves forward and across from square leg to take a simple catch. Unlike the last game, Zimbabwe have a couple of breakthroughs and the Indian batters in the middle order are going to get a chance to show their form.

Victor Nyauchi To KL Rahul OUT!
OUT! Given lbw! Victor Nyauchi has a wicket and he is all smiles. KL Rahul has a word with his partner and takes the referral. Looks more in hope. Coming to the delivery, it's on a length around off and shaping back in, Rahul shuffles across the stumps in an attempt to flick it on the leg side but misses. He is pinged on the front pad, they appeal and the umpire agrees. DRS time - The UltraEdge finds no bat and then the Ball Tracking shows that it's hitting the leg stump. KL departs cheaply, not a good comeback for him in his first outing with the bat.
