Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan slammed his third One-Day International (ODI) century in the second ODI against Zimbabwe at Harare on Friday.

A chancy knock from Dhawan (116) and good supporting role from Dinesh Karthik (69) laid the foundation for India to post 294 for eight in the second One-Day International (ODI) against Zimbabwe at Harare.

A 167-run stand between Dhawan and Karthik for the fifth wicket helped India recover from an early scare after Zimbabwean bowlers put their heart and soul into conditions that seemed favourable for bowling.
