At the end of the 18th over, Tendai Chatara struck an amazing six, but the more remarkable sphere was at great leg. Zimbabwe stacked the ball aside and attempted to go full and also vast versus Suryakumar. The batsman kept flinging his front leg in the direction of the off-side, sometimes as much as the broad mark on the fold. He after that swept 2 of these spheres with remarkable force, practically opposing physics, right to the boundary of the reduced leg.

The final ball of the more than was another wide-open crowning achievement, yet with fine leg behind, Suyakumar was even more of a shovel, scooping the ball over his left shoulder as it went over the ropes once more.

Rahul bats for India

There were 2 even more 6s, both on the ground, the secondly of which took him to a half-century. In between there was a whole lot of wise operating, particularly in the business of Virat Kohli.

Zimbabwe’s brief squeeze

Despite Rahul’s fifty, Zimbabwe did mount a return between the 12th and 15th overs. Williams obtained Kohli out initially, obtaining him captured at long-on. In the following over, Raza disregarded Rahul, reducing the ball down, and when Rahul tried to repeat the previous round that had actually taken him over 50 for six, he again captured the sphere high in the air.

The third sphere was remarkably captured by Burr, that took a catch at long-on off left-hander Rishabh Pant. Pant batted level and tough from Williams’ bowling, but Burr ran full tilt along the border, caught the ball with both hands and completed the catch with a dive.

India’s quartet strikes Zimbabwe’s forwards out

After India racked up 83 in the last 6 overs, India’s seamers made it nearly impossible for Zimbabwe to win the suit. A late ball from Bhuvneshwar was practically hit by Wessly Madhevere but not far from Kohli at short cover who ducked his head to catch his ideal hander.

On the next over, a ball from Ashdeep went through the defence of Regis Chakabva. Then late in the game, Williams hit the ball deep into the 3rd.
