India tour of Zimbabwe 2015
3rd ODI, Zimbabwe vs India at Harare Sports Club, Harare, Zimbabwe (14 Jul 2015)
India

276/5 (50) RR:5.52

India won by 83 runs

MOM: Kedar Jadhav
Zimbabwe

193/10 (42.4) RR:4.52

Welcome back.. India have registered their highest score in the series. Zimbabwe have failed to chase down targets in previous two ODIs. Can they change that today? We'll find out soon as Chibhabha and Masakadza make their way out. The Indians are already in the field. Bhuvi to kick-start proceedings, he is playing his 50th ODI. Two slips in place and off we go...

Pandey became the 12th Indian player to record a fifty on debut before falling for 71. Jadhav though continued to play aggressively after reaching his fifty and registered his maiden ODI hundred in style by hitting a maximum. His last 55 runs came off just 23 balls. Stuart Binny once again played a breezy knock and shared a quick-fire 50-run stand with Jadhav to push India past 275. The pitch isn't all that easy to bat on. Can Zimbabwe play sensibly and end the series on a high? Join us back at 13:15 local for the run chase.

At 82/4 things were not looking good for India, but a sensational 144-run stand for the 5th wicket between Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav has helped India post a competitive total on the board. Rahane, Vijay and Tiwary went cheaply, while Uthappa threw away a start. However, Pandey and Jadhav played sensibly and upped the ante after spending some time on the pitch.

49.5 - Neville Madziva to K Jadhav, SIX, maiden ODI hundred for Jadhav. Superb innings! He lets out a roar. Like his batting, he brings out a bit of cheekiness in his celebration. Uses his shirt and does a jig. Raises his bat and acknowledges the applause from his mates. Coming to the ball, it was a full toss on leg-stump, Jadhav helps it on the way, heaves it over backward square, got enough wood to clear the fence

49.4 - Neville Madziva to Binny, 1 run, too full and around off, almost a yorker, Binny squeezes the drive to long-off

48.6 - Chibhabha to Binny, FOUR, Cremer misjudged it completely. Another slower short ball, Binny pulls in the air towards deep mid-wicket, Cremer ran way too forward, tries to leap up and take the catch, but the ball eludes him, one bounce and into the fence

48.5 - Chibhabha to Binny, SIX, massive! Another bad delivery dished out by a Zimbabwean bowler at the death. Short and sat up nicely for Binny, he rocks back and muscles the pull over the cow corner fence for a maximum

47.3 - Donald Tiripano to K Jadhav, FOUR, that's four more. Can he get a hundred? With the way he is going, I think yes. Jadhav races down the wicket, converts it into a length delivery and lofts it inside out over extra cover, couple of bounces and into the fence

Chibhabha to M Pandey, THATS OUT!! Caught!!

Jadhav: "It's a great feeling. I want to thank my parents, wife and the just-born daughter. She has been very lucky for me. I should thank everyone for the support."

Kedar Jadhav is the Man of the Match

As the series progressed, the margin of defeats widened for Zimbabwe. In all three matches, they were in a situation where they could have dictated terms, but they gave away the momentum. In the first ODI, after having India on the mat at 87/5, they let the advantage slip. Bhuvi held his nerve with the ball in the last over to take the visitors home. During the second game, the hosts pulled things back after the 112-run opening stand, but their batters failed to rise to the occasion. And today, once again they had India reeling at 82/4 before allowing the visitors to post a good total. Overall, it was always so near, yet so far for Zimbabwe.

Earlier in the day, India registered their highest score of the series. Thanks to the 144-run stand for the 5th wicket between Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav. They lost Rahane, Vijay and Tiwary cheaply and were struggling at 82/4 when the duo got together. The pair played sensibly and bailed India out of trouble. Pandey became the 12th Indian to score a fifty on debut and Jadhav recorded his maiden ODI ton in the last over of the innings.

Chibhabha recorded another fifty in the series. However, he was soon running out of partners and when he tried to up the ante, he perished. The hosts then went on to lose their last 7 wickets for 43 runs. The wickets were shared among the bowlers, Harbhajan was impressive as he ended with 2/35 in his 10 overs. He was well supported by the rest of them. Binny too chipped in with three wickets. Though, Bhuvi didn't pick a wicket, he set the tone at the start of the innings.

A whitewash by India, their second successive clean sweep against Zimbabwe in a bilateral series. The hosts didn't start well as Masakadza was trapped early on. Chibhabha and Chakabva steadied the innings with a 70-run stand before the latter was dismissed. Chigu became Vijay's first ODI victim and Zimbabwe were in trouble. Chibhabha kept going at one end and this time he found an able ally in Mutumbami, but the wicket-keeper fell soon after registering the 50-run partnership.

34.6 - Binny to Mutumbami, out Lbw!! That's plumb in front. The umpire took a while to give that though! They are checking for the front foot no ball. Oh that's very tight and probably Binny had just enough behind the line. Too close for comfort! Fullish and on the stumps, Mutumbami moves across the stumps and misses the flick, the ball strikes him right in line with middle and off. End of a gritty 53-run stand. There were two sounds, probably the umpire was thinking if there was any inside edge, but it was the ball hitting the front pad before thudding into the back pad. Mutumbami lbw b Binny 22(24) [4s-3]

Binny to Mutumbami, THATS OUT!! Lbw!!
