India vs Zimbabwe 1st ODI 2022 Highlights And Latest Match Updates – Zimbabwe have been bowled out for 189. This is a disappointing outing from the hosts after the highs of the Bangladesh series. None of the batters could resist the Indian bowling. A late 70 run partnership between Richard Ngavara and Brad Evans pushed ZIM to near 200 but that is not going to be enough.

Indian bowlers were exceptional. Deepak Chahar blew away the top order with three wickets, while Axar Patel, Prasidh Krishna  also picked three wickets each to put India in a commanding position.

Zimbabwe have lost eight wickets after Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Axar Patel and Mohammed Siraj combined together to pull off a stunning bowling display.

Deepak Chahar has rattled Zimbabwe top order with three wickets. Mohammed Siraj as also got a wicket. India are on top and things look gloomy for Zimbabwe early on.
