Zimbabwe v. India

Zimbabwe v India ODI Series 2013

Harare Sports Club, Harare: Wednesday 24 July 2013 09:00 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: India won the toss and elected to bowl.

Result: India win by 6 wickets

India 1st innings

End of Over 45 (7 runs)
Bowler: Tinotenda Mutombodzi
India: 230-4 (rr 5.11)

44.5
Four Runs
FOUR! Mutombodzi to Rayudu. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Thats it. Rayudu drives through the covers for 4 off a nicely tossed up full toss, and India have won by 6 wickets. They never looked in any danger throughout this match, having had the advantage of winning the toss and then restricting their opponents to a below par score. Zimbabwe will take confidence from this performance however, posting a respectable score against the World and ICC Champions Trophy champions and getting both openers early will give them hope for the rest of the tour. 4 matches remain in the series, with the 2nd taking place again in Harare on Friday morning.
