India vs Zimbabwe: India win by five wickets
Samson finishes it off with a six. He ends unbeaten on 43 off 39 balls. Unlike the last match, India did lose five wickets today, largely because they were trying to finish the chase off as quickly as possible. The last Indian wicket to fall was Deepak Hooda, who was actually yorked by Sikandar Raza. Not too many times that you get to see a spinner getting a wicket from a yorker.

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score 2nd ODI: OUT! Rahul falls!
Early wicket for Zimbabwe and it is the Indian captain who falls. That looks absolutely plum in front but Rahul takes the review. Victor Nyauchi sent it in just outside off veering into the right hander. Three reds in the DRS and the Indian captain has to walk.
Rahul lbw b Nyauchi 1 (5), India 5/1 in 1.4 overs.

IND vs ZIM Live Score: Shardul Thakur talks
“You have to look at what the opening bowlers have bowled, whether it's swinging or seaming around. And according to the batsmen, you have to be smart as a bowler to adjust accordingly. Early on it was a little on the slower side. Later on there was a bit more so we could bowl more bouncers. What I can improve on is guess where the batsman is going to attack me and bowl accordingly. I think I have good skillsets so I just need to keep polishing those in the nets. Sometimes you just need to hit the deck hard and keep it tight.”

IND vs ZIM: Zimbabwe 161 all out in 38.1 overs
An utterly silly run out to end a poor innings from Zimbabwe. Burl is the man on strike and he wants to take two. His partner doesn't look keen on it at all and there never really was more than a run in that shot. The batters are standing face to face in the middle of the pitch as Prasidh takes the bails off. All very farcical in the end and India need 162 to seal a series win.
Aug 20, 2022 03:48 PM IST
India vs Zimbabwe: GONE!
Good awareness from KL Rahul. Lofted shot from Burl that is just out of reach for the Indian captain. But he picks up the ball and fires a throw at the keeper's end to effect the run out.

India vs Zimbabwe: Zimbabwe 83/5 in 23 overs
The partnership between Williams and Raza ended with the latter falling to a well-judged catch by Shubman Gill. That stand was worth 41 runs which came off 50 balls.

Williams surprised by the bouncer from Prasidh Krishna. Goes for a rather uncontrolled pull but the top edge flies over the boundary to give him a maximum.

IND vs ZIM Live Score: OUT!
What a catch by Samson and India get their first wicket! Siraj has been banging it in outside off since the first over and finally gets his reward. Samson was going to the left but the swing and edge forced him to change direction and pluck the ball with his left hand.
Kaitano c Samson b Mohammed Siraj 7 (32), Zimbabwe 20/1 in 8.4 overs

India vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI: KL Rahul
“Looks a little better, looks a lot harder than the previous surface and obviously bowling first there's something in the wicket, hopefully we get early wickets. I would have taken 180-190 at the start, we bowled really well and there was no dropped catch or missed chance, just that they (Evans and Ngarava) batted really well after the ball got old. Just one change - Deepak Chahar misses out, Shardul Thakur comes in.”
