The first ODI Cricket match of the Celkon Mobile cup between India and Zimbabwe held on 24/07/2013 kicked off with Ind winning the toss and electing to bowl first. It was a good decision considering the pitch initially was expected to be tough to bat on but was expected to get better during the course of the day. Read on for the complete India Vs Zimbabwe 24/07/2013 Results along with the batting and bowling performance review and the Statistical highlights of the match as it happened today.
Zim's batting kicked off quite well with both their openers (Vusi Sibanda and Sikandar Raza) applying themselves and giving them a very good opening stand of 72 Runs. Their run rate however was too slow throughout the innings which resulted in them getting very less runs in comparision to what they should have actually got to try and end the results in their favor. The best highlights of their batting was Raza who made a score of 82 Runs, Elton Chigumbura did quite well towards the end of their innings scoring 43 (34) to help them really push their target towards the score of 228 which didn't look too challenging for Ind. As far as Ind's bowling was concerned Amit Mishra did quite well picking up 3 wickets.
Ind's batting had a stuttery start as they lost their openers relatively early. Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu's partnership however ensured that the win didn't slip away from them as they made a score of 115 and 63 Not Out respectively. Kohli was undoubtedly the best highlights of their batting after making a century while Prosper Utseya was the best bowler for Zim as he was pretty confident to pick up 2 wickets and was pretty economical.
