    Suryakumar Yadav attemped a pull on the second ball of the over. He didn't get it from the middle of his bat but still got a four off it towards fine leg. However, the second one was a good shot from him over mid-off fielder for a four.

    IND 116/4 (15.3)
  • 14:38 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: WICKET!

    Another wicket for Sean Williams. This time he has got Rishabh Pant. And what a catch that is at long-on from Ryal Burl! He ran to his left before putting in a spectacular jump and taking a blinder. India are four down after losing three wickets in quick succession.

    IND 101/4 (13.3)
  • 14:31 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: KL Rahul falls after fifty!

  • 14:27 (IST)

    IND 87/2 (11.5)
  • 14:16 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: Indian in control

    India have scored 79 runs in the first 10 overs after losing only one wicket that is of Rohit Sharma. This is a good start for the side and it must look for a total near 200. This is the perfect opportunity for them to go all guns blazing and test their batting firepower before entering the semi-finals of the tournament.

    IND 79/1 (10)

  • 14:09 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: SIX! FOUR!

    KL Rahul took on Ryan Burl for a six and four in the 8th over and India managed to fetch a total of 14 runs in it. This is really good batting from Rahul. He has now shifted gears and is currently batting on 34 off 24 balls.

    IND 68/1 (8)

  • 13:59 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: FOUR!

    A short ball from Bleesing Muzarabani outside off stump and KL Rahul beautifully slashed it for a four towards the backward point region. It was too much width on offer but Rahul's shot was equally good.

    IND 40/1 (5.2)

  • 13:52 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: WICKET!

    Rohit Sharma has been trapped by Blessing Muzarabani. It was a short ball on which Rohit decided to go for a big one through pull but he mishit the ball directly into the hands of square leg fielder. India are one down.

    IND 27/1 (3.5)

  • 13:45 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: SIX!

    KL Rahul got one in the slot from  Richard Ngarava and smashed it a for a six into the crowd. Given left-arm pacer Ngarva came over the wicket for the delivery, the ball met beautifully with the bat before flying into the stands over sqaure leg fence.
  • 13:41 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: FOUR!

    A four comes off the final ball of the second over that was bowled by Tendai Chatara, yet India got only 6 runs overall off the 6 balls in the over. This is a slow start for the 2007 champions and it could have been better.

    IND 6/0 (2)
  • 13:37 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: Maiden first over!

    Richard Ngarava bowled a maiden first over to KL Rahul. The Indian batter was once again too defensive in his approach and that saw the first over giving no run to India. Ngarava's balls also missed the outside edge of Rahul's bat and Zimbabwe would be happy with such a start.
  • 13:31 (IST)

    India vs Zimbabwe: It's game time!

    KL Rahul is on the strike, Rohit Sharma is at the other end. Zimbabwe's left-arm pacer Richard Ngarava has the new ball in hand. Here we go!
