Apart from him, Shikhar Dhawan (33), Shubman Gill (33) and Deepak Hooda (25) got starts too. However, KL Rahul (1) and Ishan Kishan (1) failed to utilise the opportunity.

After going wicketless in the first game, Tanaka Chivanga, Vicory Nyauchi, and Luke Jongwe were among the wickets and Sikandar Raza also picked a wicket to get five in total.

Brad Evans, who couldn't get Shubman Gill and Deepak Hooda in two consecutive overs on two very close calls (one from the keeper to not go for the catch and the other from the umpire on LBW) can finally rejoice as he caught Gill off the bowling of Luke Jongwe and India are now four down for 97 and still need 64 runs to win.

ZIM vs IND 2nd ODI Live Updates: Hooda vs Evans, a battle to rejoice


Deepak Hooda, who has walked in after the dismissal of Ishan Kishan has been rattled by Brad Evans who already got a nick off Shubman Gill in his last over. In this over, he appealed for LBW and got his captain to review the not-out call. The ball was missing wickets just by a whisker and on the very next ball, he bowled a great bouncer. On the next ball, he almost once again got a nick off Hooda’s gloves, but it was called wide.

But after all this, Hooda goes outside leg, makes room and drives the length ball through the covers for a beautiful four

Zimbabwe have their third scalp as India are 83-3 and need 79 more to win.

ZIM vs IND 2nd ODI Live Updates: Gill survives


Shubman Gill is taking every chance he is getting very serious. He has so far been not out in both the innings. Especially in this match when Zimbabwe bowlers have dismissed the likes of KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan, he remains unbeaten. 

But just as I say that Brad Evans was able to get an edge off Gill but it went between the keeper and the first slip and neither of them went for the catch
