So, another box ticked for the young Indian team as they chased down a 150+ target without losing any wickets. First series win for Shubman Gill as the skipper. The fifth and final T20I of the five-match series is to be played at the same venue tomorrow (July 14). Don't forget to join us there. There are plenty of cricketing actions happening across the globe. 

For now, this is me, AkshayaKrishna Polya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator, Akshay Bhide, who, alongside our scorer/analyst Raju Khariya, brought you all the live-action of this visitors-dominated fixture. We will meet again. Until then, it's cheers!

This is India’s second 10-wicket win in T20Is after they had done so against the same team at the same venue back in 2016, where the target was 100.

Shubman Gill (India Captain): "Definitely, I am feeling happy with my first series win as the captain. But I guess the job has not been done yet. We have one more game left to play. 

Chasing was one thing we talked about. We could not do it in the morning, so good to get it done. 

This is a great team, a great bunch of players. Hopefully, we will be able to take the team forward

I haven't had the discussion with the coach, and if there are any changes, then I will let you know at the toss (chuckles)."
Yashasvi Jaiswal (Player of the Match): "I think I really enjoyed today. The wicket was good today. I had different plans for different bowlers and I enjoyed my batting.

When the ball was new, it was coming onto the bat. But once it got old, it got slower. I changed the way I batted. Me and Shubman enjoy batting together.

Initially, I thought I would go on in the first 10 overs. But after spending some time in the middle, I realized how to bat and stay unbeaten till the end and win the game for my side."

Sikandar Raza (Zimbabwe Captain): "I think the wicket was slightly on the slower side to start with; maybe it was a bit damp. We would have liked to get to around 160, which we thought would be par, but given the way they batted today, just raise your hands and appreciate. Even 180 would have been not enough. Today is the day you hold your heads high and say they batted better.

I am very sure we will be a very competitive side in a short time. Even though the last five overs went for 54-55, we could have got more runs, another 8-10 more runs. There was a bit of kick, bounce and we had to reign ourselves in.

They batted really well and batted us out of the game. The wicket was slightly on the slower side and it was spongy. The heavy roller did the trick for them. It became a beautiful wicket.

Hopefully, we will come back stronger in the last game of the series. We want to bounce back well in all three departments. Even if we lose series 2-3, it would be a good result in the end."

Khaleel Ahmed (India): "To be honest, I'm very happy with my performance. I got the rhythm and when I bowled in the right areas, I got the rewards.

This series means a lot to me. I was very sad when I was not part of this dressing room. The only thing was to come back into the side and happy with it.

We play together a lot in the IPL. So, there is no senior or junior in the team.

When I was as a reserve in the World Cup, I worked a lot on my cutters and yorkers. There were no stress of playing a match. I'm happy with my progress and my bowling in the death overs."
7:22 PM IST and 3:52 PM Local Time: The reigning T20 World Champions have come hard at Zimbabwe and bash them by 10 wickets in the fourth T20I to win the series 3-1 with a game in hand! An all-round display from the young Indian set-up has proved too hot to handle for the Sikandar Raza-led side, as they have been completely outplayed in this match. 

Earlier, Shubman Gill won the fourth consecutive toss on the tour and opted to bowl first on a fresh pitch. Tushar Deshpande, on debut and Khaleel Ahmed failed to deliver with the new ball as Tadiwanashe Marumani and Wessly Madhevere added 63 runs for the opening wicket. India's 5th and 6th bowlers, Abhishek Sharma and Shivam Dube, respectively, took care of Marumani (32 off 31) and Madhevere (25 off 24) in consecutive overs to get their side back in the contest.

Zimbabwe soon lost control of the proceedings as wickets fell at regular intervals. But skipper Sikandar Raza, at the other end, took the attacking route and scored 46 off 28 balls. In the course of the innings, he became the first Zimbabwean batter to score 2000+ T20I runs! Once Raza was out in the 19th over, India restricted the hosts to 152/7 in 20 overs on a good-looking surface.

Khaleel Ahmed came back strongly in the death overs and finished with 2/32. Tushar Deshpande got rid of the big fish, Raza, to celebrate his maiden international wicket. A wicket each for Sundar, Abhishek and Dube, while Bishnoi, for the second successive time, went wicketless.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill came hard at Zimbabwe and gave them no chance at all. Jaiswal was the aggressor in the unbeaten 156-run stand and scored 93 off 53 balls, hitting 13 fours and 2 maximums. Gill, who started off slowly, got into a nice rhythm, scoring his second consecutive fifty in the series and remained unbeaten on 58 in 39 balls, smashing 5 fours and 2 sixes.

Zimbabwe used 6 bowlers, but none of them could extract a breakthrough and were taken to the cleaners as the Men in Blue cruised home with 28 balls to spare!

There is a quick turnaround as the fifth and final T20I of the series is to be played tomorrow (July 14) at the same venue!

Stay tuned for the post-match presentations!
