India vs Zimbabwe Second ODI
2nd One Day International, Harare
India win on Dhawan's 116 and Unadkat's 4-41; IND-ZIM:2-0(2/5)
July 26Man of the match Shikhar Dhawan struck 116 from 127 balls, capitalising on sloppy bowling and fielding by the Zimbabweans, to lift India from 65 for four in the 17th over and post a daunting 294 for eight in their second one-dayer. Dhawan, who got at least three lives, completed his third ODI century and shared 167 runs with Dinesh Karthik (69) for the fifth wicket. India's tail looted 23 off the last over. In the seventh over, Skipper Virat Kohli, who fell to a controversial catch, argued aggressively with on-field officials who sought a review from the third umpire. He was adjudged out even though the replays were unclear. Chasing 295, Zimbabwe made a strong start with Sibanda collecting seven fours and two sixes, falling after getting to his fifty. The 21-year-old Jaydev Unadkat finished with figures of four for 41, picking up the first two and the last two wickets of the innings.India XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik (Wicket Keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Vinay Kumar, Shami Ahmed, Jaydev Unadkat, Amit Mishra.
