Zimbabwe Cricket dedicated the second ODI vs India to the cause of children’s cancer. They donated $500, a Zimbabwe jersey and a singed ball from Sanju Samson to a six-year-old.

Good one, @ZimCricketv! #ZIMvIND

KL Rahul promoted himself up back as a opener with Shikhar Dhawan in place on Shubman Gill, but the move was caught him off guard as he was plumbed LBW against Victor Nyauchi. Shikhar Dhawan was aggressive and used his feet well to hit four good-looking boundaries. But he was undone by a well-directed bouncer from Tanaka Chivanga as he pulled but it got big on him and skied to square leg.

After the match, Samson revealed he was not satisfied with his wicketkeeping and said, “How much ever time you spend in the middle, it makes you feel good. Even more special to do it for the country. I did take three catches, but I missed a stumping. Really enjoy keeping and batting. I think they (Indian bowlers) were bowling really good areas, a lot of balls came nicely to me,” said Samson in the post-match conference. 

Brief Scores: Zimbabwe 161 in 38.1 overs (Sean Williams 42, Ryan Burl 41*, Shardul Thakur 3/38) lost to India 167/5 in 25.4 overs (Sanju Samson 43*, Shubman Gill 33, Luke Jongwe 2/33). (Asia Cup 2022: Rohit Sharma opens up on players struggling with poor form in Team India, says ‘we expect…’)
