India batted first and managed to put a modest total of 138 in their 20 overs. Their batting failed and there were few good performances in patches. Kedar Jadhav played a determined knock of 58 and helped his side in post a decent total. The target was not a challenging one and Zimbabwe needed a good start to chase it down.

Zimbabwe after a terrific start in the chase lost their way in the middle and lost the game. The final over saw Zimbabwe require 21 runs which is a difficult task for any side.

Sran chipped a wicket and managed a narrow escape for his side. Fans and followers took to their Twitter handle where they made fun of India’s ‘out of the jail’ victory. Check out some tweets here:
