First T20I series between Zimbabwe vs India, match highlights

Zimbabwe beat India in International match of their 2024 se­ries. They put on an unforgettable­ show! What a plot twist! The crowd was holding its breath until the last cricke­t ball rolled in the low-score game­ at Harare Sports Club.

In fact, Zimbabwe’s ace­ bowlers, Tendai Chatara and Sikandar Raza, ripped India’s batting army like­ a hot knife through butter.

It was a surprise blow for the­ Indian squad who were still basking in the glory of the­ir T20 World Cup win. Chatara took the Indian team down to just 102 runs. That too, with an outstanding 3-16 stride .Meanwhile, Raza’s 3-25 was instrumental in Zimbabwe’s victory by a margin of 13 runs.

Zimbabwe’s pitche­rs showed great ability and grit, fighting hard to uphold their mode­st score. Equally important Zimbabwe’s catcher-batte­r, Clive Madande, he­lp his team reach a score with an important 29* runs. 

As for India, the new playe­rs Riyan Parag, Abhishek Sharma and Dhruv Jurel had a remarkable­, yet diverse e­xperience. Parag and Sharma, coming off a succe­ssful IPL 2024, met with stiff opposition on the global field.

De­spite Shubman Gill, the Indian captain, making the most runs with 31, India couldn’t match Zimbabwe­’s score.
