India crush Zimbabwe in a one sided affair

Harare: India played brilliantly and punched Zimbabwe by 10 wickets in the second T20 International leveling the  three-match series 1-1 at the Harare Sports Club here on Monday.

Indian openers while chasing a small target of 100 made a superb start with Lokesh Rahul (47 not out) and Mandeep Singh (52 not out) taking their team over the line with 35 balls to spare.

Unlike in the first T20I where the Indian batting collapsed, the opening duo displayed a stellar show and paced their innings to perfection to bring up the 50 in 46 balls and then carried on the momentum. This is India’s first 10-wicket win in the shortest format of the game.
