India clinched the One Day International series with an impressive 5 wicket win over Zimbabwe Saturday at Harare sports club.
The visitors won the toss again and elected to bowl first on a wicket that seemed to offer some form of assistance for seam bowlers in the morning.
Zimbabwe’s top order cancer of collapsing continued to unravel as it failed once again to put meaningful runs on the board with the team stranded at 31-4.
Sean Williams tried to reconstruct the host’s innings with a knock of 42 runs of 42 balls but lost his wicket playing one shot too many.
Zimbabwe was bowled out for 161 in 38.1 overs.
Indian bowler Shardul Thakur was the pick of the crop, picking up 3 wickets for 38 runs.
Despite the fact that the target was set at 162 runs it was not an easy chase for India as they were a few nervy moments losing some wickets upfront.
Luke Jongwe picked up 2 wickets for 33 runs, before Sanju Samson steered them with his unbeaten 43 runs and was named man of the match
