Live score of India vs. Zimbabwe, 2nd T20I: Shubman Gill OUT! IND 10/1 following 2 overs.

India vs. Zimbabwe Live Score, 2nd T20I:

India vs. Zimbabwe

Shubman Gill and company will be hoping to mount a comeback in the 5-match series by winning today, following a devastating loss to hosts Zimbabwe in the 1st T20 encounter in Harare.

In their allotted 20 overs, Zimbabwe managed a pitiful 115/9 in the opening Twenty20 International encounter. With just three batters reaching double figures—Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan, and Washington Sundar—the young Indian squad struggled mightily to reduce the score.

Given that the entire batting lineup failed to produce, the Indian captain and coach VVS Laxman will have to make some difficult choices. Shubman, meanwhile, expressed dissatisfaction with the players’ fielding performance on Saturday, stating that they were “rusty.”

On the other hand, Zimbabwe captain Sikandar Raza stated that although he is pleased with his team’s performance in the opening match, the work is not yet finished.

XI for India against. Zimbabwe in the second Twenty20 International match:

India: Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar, Sai Sudarshan, Abhishek Sharma, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Riyan Parag, Rinku Singh, Dhruv Jurel (WK), Shubman Gill (C).
The following people are from Zimbabwe: Wessly Madhevere, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chatara, Brian Bennett, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Innocent Kaia, Dion Myers, Johnathan Campbell, Clive Madande (WK), and Blessing Muzarabani.

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Balancing aggression with responsibility

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Shubman Gill and his young team’s initial stumble may be shocking. But, Team India must analyze their setback and realise that their talent is undeniable. With a quick turnaround, their youth and energy can do wonders.

India are still favourites in this series, thanks to strong players who shone in IPL 2024. The key for India’s batters is balancing aggression with responsibility and adapting to the slow surface conditions.

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Will Shubman make any changes?

In that light, Gill and coach VVS Laxman may look to make some changes in the playing XI. While the duo haven’t officially made any announcements about changes in playing XI, Dhruv Jurel might have to make way for Jitesh Sharma in the playing XI. Meanwhile, Harshit Rana could also make his debut in place of one of the spinners.

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Speaking at the post-match presentation, Bishnoi said,“We are trying our best and we need to bounce back stronger. We just need to come back tomorrow (Sunday) with a fresh mind for the second match,” said Bishnoi in the post-match press meet.

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Shubman Gill dissects reasons for India’s loss

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Speaking to the presentors after the match, Gill said, “Halfway through (the match) we had lost five wickets, and it would’ve been best for us if I stayed there till the end. I am very disappointed with the way I got out and the rest of the match panned out,”

Gill added that there was a bit of home for the Men in Blue at the end but something is wrong if your number 10 batsman has to get the job done for you.

He said, “There was a bit of hope for us. But while chasing 115 and your No.10 batter is out there, you know something is wrong… We spoke about taking time and enjoying our batting but it didn’t pan out that way,”

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Sikandar Raza on victory against India

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Speaking at the post-match presentation, Raza said “Feel really happy. Gotta take one game at a time. Gotta enjoy this victory but job’s not done. World champions will play like world champions, we gotta make sure we keep upping our game one game at a time. I don’t think it’s a 116 wicket, it’s not a wicket where you get all out for 103. So, credit to the bowlers from both sides especially given the sticky conditions in the winter. Likely to be slower and turn,”

“I told not to care about the result, just wanted to show fight and give the crowd what they wanted. We didn’t want to blown away. We were brilliant in the field. Not perfect, but that shows there’s room for improvement. We knew the fans will be there encouraging us. We wanted to make use of the energy while batting, bowling fielding. And the crowd didn’t let us down, the energy was up and kept us going. We felt like we were a team of 12, again,” the Zimbabwe skipper added

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Key players to watch out for

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Indian batters, with the sole exception of Gill, delivered a dismal performance. Gill (31 off 29 balls) was the only batter among the top 6 who went to double-digits.

Washington Sundar (27 off 34 balls) tried his bit with the bat and was impressive with the ball as well. Bishnoi was the most impressive performer. Many Indian fielders looked uninspired and were sloppy in the field.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, delivered an inspiring performance, especially with the ball. All-rounder Sikandar Raza lived up to his reputation.

Wicket-keeper-batter Clive Madande (29 off 25 balls) put up a fight with the bat and managed to take his team to the score that eventually turned out to be a winning one. All their bowlers were miserly, hardly giving away any free takeaway to Indian batters.
