Commentary

India won by 9 wkts | Zimbabwe Vs India Live Score, 4th ODI

India will now hope to complete the whitewash when the teams meet for the final time on 3rd August. Do join us for all the action. For now, cheers and bye..
Mohit Sharma: 'It feels good, thanks to the skipper for giving me the chance. I just wanted to keep things simple, I am verty excited. I did not try too much, just kept to the basics. Hopefully, I will do well in future as well.'
Mohit Sharma is the MoM on debut
Kohli: 'There was a bit on that wicket, the bowlers extracted some movement from the surface and got us the early wickets. Raina and Rohit then finished the chase off. We have some good fielders now, and Jadeja is one of them. Very pleased for Mohit, he bowled really well and was extremely accurate. We wanted to give the guys who did not have a decent bat a go, it was good to see Rohit and Raina do well. We want to end on a high, go home with a smile. We need to execute our skills, the end result will come as well.'
Taylor: 'It is pretty frustrating, just seem to not find the answers. We are not converting our preparations into results in the middle. Lots of soft dismissals, we have been capitulating everytime and we can't come back from those situations. We still have one more game, we have everything to play for. Hopefully, we can put some smiles on the faces of the people in the next match.'
Easy win in the end for the Indians. The result was never in doubt once they bowled Zimbabwe out for 144. Cheteshwar Pujara failed to make the most of his opportunity at the top of the order as he was bowled by Chatara for just 13. Rohit Sharma scratched around but made sure that he did not throw his wicket away. Raina, promoted to No. 3 made the most of the chance as the duo scripted an impressive partnership. India now go 4-0 up and will look to complete the whitewash when the two teams meet on Saturday.
30.5 Brian Vitori to Suresh Raina 2
1 run, India win, full toss on the pads, Raina flicks it behind square and gets back for the second run. Only one run was needed though and only that will count
30.4 Brian Vitori to Rohit Sharma 1
1 run, scores are level, full toss from Vitori, Sharma slices it to the left of backward point for a single
30.3 Brian Vitori to Rohit Sharma 6
SIX, massive, length ball from Vitori, Sharma clears his left leg and heaves it high and deep into the stands at long on. India are finishing in style
30.2 Brian Vitori to Rohit Sharma 4
FOUR, easy pickings for Sharma. This was full and wide from Vitori, Sharma reaches out, opens the face of the bat and steers it in the gap between backward point and short third man
30.1 Brian Vitori to Rohit Sharma 0
no run, full toss from Vitori, Sharma reaches out for the drive and gets a thick edge that bounces through to the keeper

29.5 Tendai Chatara to Suresh Raina 2
2 runs, excellent effort from Waller in the deep. This was a full toss from Chatara, Raina made room and slices it towards sweeper cover. Waller raced in from the boundary, realises that he can't get to the ball, puts his body behind the line and saves a couple
29.4 Tendai Chatara to Suresh Raina 4
FOUR, lovely shot, too full from Chatara, Raina gets forward and punches it back past the bowler, beats mid-on and races away to the fence
