India skittle out Zimbabwe for 123 in third ODI

Harare : Zimbabwe’s batting woes continued as the hosts were bundled out for a yet another paltry score of 123 in the inconsequential third and final one-day internationals against India here at the Harare Sports Club on Wednesday.

Electing to bat first, Zimbabwe once again struggled against the disciplined Indian bowling line-up, with Chamu Chibhabha (27) and Vusi Sibanda (38) being the only batsmen to show some resistance.

The hosts began slowly on a hard pitch as they were 104 for three in the 33rd over before losing four wickets in four balls. They were eventually bowled out within 42.2 overs.

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers for the tourists, taking four wickets in his impressive spell which included one maiden over.

Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal provided substantial support by removing Chibhabha and Sibanda, while Dhawal Kulkarni and Axar Patel claimed a wicket apiece.

India won the first two games against Zimbabwe by nine and eight wickets respectively.(ANI)
