Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Rohit Sharma, 3.5 ov), 2-87 (Virat Kohli, 11.5 ov), 3-95 (KL Rahul, 12.2 ov), 4-101 (Rishabh Pant, 13.3 ov), 5-166 (Hardik Pandya, 19.2 ov)
Richard Ngarava4144111.00122411
19.2 to HH Pandya, this one isn't a free-hit, though! Wide yorker, gets it more or less right, and Pandya, looking to slap it through or behind point, edges thickly. It flies quickly to short third, where Muzarabani takes it well. 166/5
Tendai Chatara403408.5053100
Blessing Muzarabani4050112.5058010
3.5 to RG Sharma, launched at square leg! Rohit's blood was pumping and he climbed through the short ball, looked to have nailed his stroke, but it's a long square boundary and the fielder is perfectly placed. Doesn't need to move to swallow his chance, and Zimbabwe are rewarded for a discipled start. 27/1
Wellington Masakadza201206.0051010
Ryan Burl1014014.0011100
Sikandar Raza301816.0050100
12.2 to KL Rahul, got him, he can't quite pull off a repeat. This time Raza slows it down a bit, and it doesn't land quite as full. It's also leaving the right-hander, and Rahul has to reach for the ball a bit. Looks to go straight and hard again, but slices it a touch, and the ball ends up in the hands of long-off. 95/3
Sean Williams20924.5060020
11.5 to V Kohli, got him, Williams gets Kohli with a hard-length ball. Odd thing to say for a spinner, but he just hammered it into the pitch, flat. A bit of room to free his arms, but the attempt to flat-bat it over long-off isn't successful. Doesn't get hold of it at all, and Kohli only succeeds in hitting it straight to the fielder. On this occasion, a measured start doesn't segue into an explosive finish. 87/2
13.3 to RR Pant, got him, Ryan Burl has taken another catch at the boundary, and this one is a stunner! Can't fault Pant for the choice of shot. The ball was there for the slog-sweep, and he looked to have found the gap too, but Burl sprints a long way to his left from long-on, and throws himself horizontal to grab the ball low with both hands. Outstanding stuff. 101/4

Bhuvneshwar Kumar311113.66141010
0.1 to W Madhevere, flashed into the covers, and Kohli clings on! It's a marvellous low pounce, diving forward at short cover. Madhevere followed the outswing with a flowing blade, connected sweetly, but too close to the man. India are up and running!. 0/1
Arshdeep Singh20914.5091020
1.4 to RW Chakabva, ping! Next batter please! Exceptional bowling from Arshdeep, a metre fuller, luring the drive, but the ball arcs back through the gate from over the wicket, and cracks into off stump. Zimbabwe are in a heap already!. 2/2
Mohammed Shami201427.0071100
5.6 to SC Williams, opens the face, slashed to deep third! Unconvincing stay from Williams, once again he was staying leg-side of the pace, and pays the price as his loose hack spirals off a fat outside edge. Zimbabwe are three-down at the end of the powerplay. 28/3
7.3 to T Munyonga, pinned on the toes, up goes the finger! It was definitely leg-sided, so Zimbabwe review, but Rod Tucker clearly felt it was full and straight enough. No inside-edge, so what does ball-tracker say? Leg stump it is! Hitting flush, half-way up. This innings is an ex-innings. 36/5
Hardik Pandya301625.33101021
6.4 to CR Ervine, chipped in the air, back to the bowler! It ought to have been simple, but Hardik had to adjust in a hurry as the ball looped over his head in his followthrough, and he stuck out a hand to cling on! This innings is heading south rapidly now. 31/4
16.4 to Sikandar Raza, shortish offcutter, angling into leg stump, and Raza takes on the pull and takes on the two leg-side boundary riders. Doesn't really get hold of it, and SKY moves a few steps to his right and takes a simple catch at deep midwicket. 111/9
Ravichandran Ashwin402235.50133010
13.2 to RP Burl, bowled him, Ashwin relieves a bit of pressure with this. Fired in quick and full, on leg stump, and Burl looks to whip it leg side but only manages to inside-edge into his front pad from where it ricochets into the stumps. 96/6
15.1 to WP Masakadza, got him there, proper offspinner's dismissal. Steps out, and the in-drift makes the left-hander look to work it leg side. But he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball, and it turns to take the leading edge and pop straight to Rohit at short extra-cover. 104/7
15.5 to R Ngarava, keeps low, and Ashwin bags his third. Back of a length offbreak, bowled with a lot of overspin, and that would normally mean extra bounce, but it ends up sliding through at below knee height, and Ngarava, attempting to swipe it to long-on, ends up losing his off stump. 106/8
Axar Patel3.2040112.0045100
17.2 to TL Chatara, and that is that. Ball holds up on the pitch slightly as Axar bowls back of a length. Looks to make room, possibly to hit into the off side, but the ball stops and keeps going with the angle. Ends up playing a half-flick, half-punch, and Axar moves smartly to his right to take a shoulder-high return catch. 115/10
