Amit Mishra took six wickets as India completed a 5-0 whitewash in their one-day series against Zimbabwe with a comfortable seven wicket win in Bulawayo.
Mishra’s heroics helped dismiss the hosts for 163 in 39.5 overs before Ajinkya Rahane’s 50 and Ravindra Jadeja’s unbeaten 48 saw the tourists coast to victory with 16 overs to spare.
Zimbabwe's innings never developed any rhythm as Vusi Sibanda was out early for just five, before Brendan Taylor followed for a duck shortly after to give Mohit Sharma his sole wicket.
Timycen Maruma, Hamilton Masakadza and Malcolm Waller fell within the space of 10 overs to leave the home side 72 for five in the 23rd over but Sean Williams and Elton Chigumbura offered some resistance with a fifty-partnership, before the latter fell to Mishra.
The same bowler then cleaned up the tail, but not before Williams completed a 62-ball half-century.
India’s response got off to a terrible start with Cheteshwar Pujara bowled by Kyle Jarvis in the first over for nought, but Shikhar Darwan added a swift 41 off 38 balls while Rahane hit four fours and a six to reach his 50 in 64 deliveries.
And despite Rahane falling to Waller two balls later, Jadeja and Dinesh Karthik hit the remaining 41 runs, with the former finishing the innings off in style with a huge six off Waller.
