India were 53-3 against Zimbabwe at the 10-over mark in the 3rd T20I. Ambati Rayudu and Kedhar Jadhav were at the crease after India had lost wickets in quick succession. Rayudu was batting at 10, while Jadhav was at 16. Both the batsman were in damage control mode after India were made to pay for their mistakes. MS Dhoni was still to come out to bat though. They were off to a slow start as they opened the scoring in the second over of the innings. KL Rahul then slowly found rhythm but Mandeep Singh gave his wicket away to Donald Tiripano as he was brilliantly caught by Maruma for just 4 runs. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: India  vs  Zimbabwe , Live Score, 3rd T20I Match at Harare
