3/5 - (2 votes)

ZIM vs IND 3rd ODI: India and Zimbabwe are all set to clash against each other for the final time in the third One Day International. Both the teams will be aware of the playing conditions as the match will be conducted at the Harare Sports Club. There is nothing left in the tour as Men in Blue have already clinched the series by 2-0.

The KL Rahul-led side cruised to a ten-wicket victory in the first ODI. It was an enchanting performance by the visitors. With the ball, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, and Axar Patel delivered praise-worthy performances. Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill were the wrecker-in-chief with the bat.

The Men in Blue carried the momentum in the second match as well. They scored a victory by five wickets. Again the Indian bowlers dominated the show as Zimbabwe were folded at a score of 161 runs.

Chasing the total, India faced some hiccups as they quickly lost their top-order batters. However, Sanju Samson rose to the occasion. The wicketkeeper-batter delivered a Man of the Match performance with the knock of 43 runs off 39 balls.

India will now have the pressure to maintain the legacy. They haven’t lost One Day International on Zimbabwe soil for the past nine years. The team wouldn’t like to name the unwanted record on Monday. Also, the skipper KL Rahul will be hoping for a good play time to prepare for the upcoming Asia Cup.

Speaking of Zimbabwe, they are in deep trouble. There are a lot of holes in the ship and the team needs a proper introspection regarding what went wrong following a spectacular performance against Bangladesh.
