Zimbabwe’s head coach Makhaya Ntini got depressed after his team’s loss in the second ODI to an extent that he wanted to hang himself. The hosts had a horrible day on the field losing to visitors India by 8 wickets. After the loss, Ntini said, “I almost hanged myself, if there was a tomato tree outside I would have hanged myself in that tomato tree. It’s no good. We have experienced players with us who can easily read the game. We were in the perfect position.” Ntini recently lashed out at BCCI and Cricket South Africa (CSA) for not sending their best teams to visit Zimbabwe while their customary yearly tour.  FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Zimbabwe 2016, 2nd ODI at Harare
