India level 1-1 with 10-wicket Zimbabwe win
HARARE: Two days after they suffered a chastening defeat at the hands of Zimbabwe, India exacted revenge with a 10-wicket victory in the second Twenty20 international at Harare Sports Club to level the three-match series at 1-1.
Zimbabwe’s batsmen had led the way in their tense two-run win on Saturday, but on Monday they were limited to 99 for nine as India seamers Barinder Sran and Jasprit Bumrah shared seven wickets.
Sran took 4 for 10 to record the second best figures by a bowler on Twenty20 international debut, while Bumrah took 3 for 11.
