Avesh Khan?is up for a quick chat. He says that he is delighted with his performance but says he always thinks of ways to improve. Says that he tells the skipper to not prefer any bowling slot for him and that he is always ready to bowl in any phase of the game. Further adds that he is always up for giving his best and picking quick wickets.?Appreciates Shubman Gill?and says that he's a bowler's captain. Says he gives them a lot of freedom and space.?On being asked about Ravi Bishnoi, he appreciates that Bishnoi is not only a good bowler but an excellent fielder and he has taken a lot of blinders in the Indian T20 League too.?

Earlier in the game, India?posted a big total on a challenging surface courtesy of a brilliant fifty from skipper Shubman Gill?and a couple of fiery knocks from Yashasvi Jaiswal?and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Zimbabwe's bowling wasn't that great and sloppy fielding made things even worse for them. Blessing Muzarabani?and Sikandar Raza?picked up a couple of wickets each and they were the only spark in an otherwise lackluster bowling effort. While chasing, the host got off to the worst possible start, but the stand between Clive Madande?and Dion Myers?kept them in the game for a long time, but the target proved to be a bit too steep for them chase as they fell short by 23 runs.

India, on the other hand, will be pleased with their bowling effort. Avesh Khan?and Khaleel Ahmed?were brilliant with the new ball and picked up three quick wickets with one of them falling to a stunning catch from Ravi Bishnoi?at point. However, it was Washington Sundar's spell that took the game away from the hosts in the middle overs. Firstly he got the big fish, Sikandar Raza,?and then added a couple of more to his tally. As they played one bowler short, the four overs between Shivam Dube?and Abhishek Sharma?cost them 50 runs and put them under a bit of pressure. However, it was that two-run over from Khaleel?that got them well ahead in the game. Avesh and Bishnoi went for a few at the death, but they had enough runs in their bank and got over the line.

Jul 10, 2024 19:46 IST

After a good first over, it went downhill for Zimbabwe?as they lost three wickets in quick succession in the Powerplay with not much on the board. Sikandar Raza?came in and played a few lusty blows but perished soon after and Johnathan Campbell?also failed to make much impact leaving them in a huge spot of bother. However, the duo of Dion Myers?and Clive Madande?rode that storm well and steadied the ship nicely with a mixture of aggression and smart cricket. They were able to target the part-timers and went into the slog overs well set. However, lack of experience showed when they were just not able to handle the pressure and failed to get the boundaries ultimately succumbing to the situation. The duo added 77 runs together but just did not have enough steam left in them in the end. However, Myers notched up his maiden T20I fifty and gave a little bit of a scare to the visitors but ended up on the losing side.

Jul 10, 2024 19:42 IST

INDIA GO 2-1 UP IN THE SERIES! The margin of victory does not tell the full story here as Zimbabwe?only have themselves to blame here. No doubt the Men in Blue were the better team, but the hosts will be ruing their dropped chances and misfields, otherwise, the story could have been a lot different as Dion Myers played a splendid knock towards the end that got them close.

19.6: Avesh Khan to Dion Myers, A huge appeal for LBW but it is clearly going way down the leg side. As expected,?'No' says the umpire.

The ball pings on his boot and deflects before running down to deep fine. UltraEdge shows nothing but the Ball Tracking confirms that the ball and sliding down the leg side big time. NOT OUT.
