Sikandar Raza played the innovative scoop shot for a four and a six over cover off Avesh Khan, while Brad Evans got an inside edge to the boundary in the same over. But the promising century partnership came to an end when Evans was dimissed lbw, leaving Zimbabwe needing 17 off the last two overs. It was Shubman Gill who dealt the killer blow by taking an excellent diving catch at long-on that ended centurion Raza’s knock, giving Shardul Thakur his only wicket. Avesh bagged the last wicket, dismissing Victor Nyauchi, as India recorded their 15th consecutive ODI win against Zimbabwe.
How crucial was that catch from Shubman Gill…
