IND vs ZIM 1st ODI Highlights: Deepak Chahar bowled an incisive opening spell before Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill hit fifties to power India to a clinical 10-wicket win. It was the record ninth-wicket stand of 70 runs between Brad Evans (33) and Richard Ngarava (32) that took Zimbabwe close to the 200-run mark. In response, Dhawan and Gill put up a 192-run partnership to help India get past the finish line in just 30.5 overs. Dhawan scored 81 from 113 balls and Gill a more brutal 82 from 72 deliveries. In bowling, it didn't take long for Chahar to find his rhythm on a Harare Sports Club track that offered some help. Chahar, who bowled unchanged for seven overs with first spell figures of 3/27, was well supported by Mohammed Siraj (1/36), who worked up brisk pace while bowling the ideal 'Test match length'. Prasidh Krishna (3/50) and Axar Patel (3/24) also got their share of middle and lower-order victims. Earlier, Rahul, who made a comeback after a nearly three-month layoff due to a sports hernia and Covid-19, won the toss and elected to bowl. Rahul took the captaincy reins in Rohit Sharma's absence, with India in good ODI form after winning five of their last six matches. Chahar also returned to the eleven after recovering from a hamstring injury that he sustained back in February this year. Watch India vs Zimbabwe 1st ODI here

    India vs Zimbabwe Live: KL Rahul on being ‘away from the game’

    "We do play a lot of cricket and injuries are going to be part of it. Being away from the game is really hard. It is a tough time and we worked together (me Kuldeep and Deepak) in Bangalore," says India skipper KL Rahul.

    "There was a bit of swing and seam movement as well, but it was good to see the bowlers stay disciplined and pick up those wickets. For a few of us, it is great to be back in the Indian dressing room. As a team we have been in good form, good to see that all of us are getting enough game time."

    "The landing was a little hard and when you play a international game after six and half months, obviously you will be a little nervous. Before coming here I played at least 4-5 practice games and the body and mind wasn't working together in the first few overs, but it got better after that," he says.

    "Our bowlers tried to come hard at them, but obviously they batted really well and took the game away from us. We will have a chat today, keep our heads up and bounce back strong on Saturday."
