So that's it from our end for the day. India took an unbeaten lead of 2-0 in this three-match series and in the third and last match of the series the home side will look to avoid the whitewash. Hope you have enjoyed all the action here at our network and you can now switch the tabs on our network as plenty of cricking action is going on from all around the globe. For now, this is me, Ajay Ahire signing it off along with my co-commentators Ayan Chatterjee and Hitesh Peddurwar with our scorer/analyst Yogesh Kumar. Until then stay safe and stay cool...
KL Rahul (Indian Skipper): "We do bat deep and good that the boys got the time in the middle. I do need some time in the middle and obviously playing this series is needed to get some confidence. They do have quality bowlers in their attack as they beat Bangladesh in the previous series. They came hard at you and can put the batters in trouble. Total rest day tomorrow. We are here to play good cricket here and representing the country is an honor for us. Wherever we go, we always get huge support."
Sanju Samson(Player of the match): "It's very special, and touching for me( Regarding signing the match ball for a small kid(cancer survivor)). If you spend time in the middle you will feel good. I did take three catches but I missed a stumping too(laughs). Really enjoyed keeping the wickets and contributing to the team with the bat. The fast bowlers bowled pretty well and  I received lots of balls behind the wickets felt really good doing that."
Regis Chakabva, Zimbabwe Skipper: "I think we fought well in the field. In the last few games, we struggled to get wickets, and now to get wickets was good. We did well there, but the batting was bad today. It's a challenge batting first, but we have to do it. The bowlers stuck at it and created pressure for us. But we hope we can get more runs on the board and compete on Monday."
Time for the post-match presentation ceremony with Alan Wilkins. 
Six from the bat of Sanju to seal the deal here for India. With this win, India takes an unbeaten lead of 2-0 in this three-match series. A clinical performance from this Indian side as they outplayed the opposition in all three departments and won the game by 5 wickets. A lot to look after for the home side as they never looked up to the mark against this Indian side. 

Chasing 162 on a good batting track of Harare Sports Club. KL Rahul came up the order today as he opened the innings with Shikhar. The comeback with the bat didn't go the way KL Rahul would have hoped for as he was trapped in front of the wickets off the bowling of Victor Nyauchi on the score of 1. The successful opening pair of the first game got in together and started to gather the runs in quick time as Shikhar looked in top form, As he scored 33 from just 21 balls before miscuing the pull straight into the hands of the square leg fielder. 

After the departure of Shikhar, Shubman took the charge and played some glorious shots all around as he tapped the fence on 6 occasions. Ishan Kishan who came out to bat at number 4 looked rusty in the middle and failed to get going and eventually dragged one on the woods on his personal score of 6. Shubman after playing excussive shots ended up hitting the short-of-a-length delivery straight into the hands of the third man. Deepak Hooda looked impressive as he took his time and played with real authority but on the score of 25, he was knocked over by Raza. Sanju Samson as expected from him scored 43 runs in 39 balls and took the team over the line as he looked absolutely fluent in the middle. 

Earlier in the day, the home side was asked to bat first and they managed to put only 161 on the board. The top order couldn't resist the hostile bowling of the Indian pace trio and they were 31 for 4 at one stage. Sean Williams and Ryan Burl played some sensible cricket as they scored 42 and 39 runs respectively and took them to a total of 161. With the ball for India, Shardul Thakur was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 3 wickets in his 7 overs. The rest of the bowlers picked up a wicket each and bundled them out on a low score of 161.

So all and all it was a solid performance from men in blue to seal the series in the second game itself. On to the presentations now...
