It was a resounding victory for India in the second T20 to square the series 1-1 against Zimbabwe. In the first half, pacers bowled superbly to restrict the opposition to 99 runs and then it was Rahul and Mandeep’s show all the way. Meanwhile, it is also India first 10 wicket victory in T20s.

It was great bowling display from Jasprit Bumrah and Barinder Sran to restrict Zimbabwe to paltry 99 runs in their stipulated 20 overs. Zimbabwe have sunk and slipped miserably against some quality pace bowling. India's bowlers were tight and kept the batsmen in check, only Peter Moor was the only ray of hope in the African innings. India need only 100 runs to square the series.

 It will be a litmus test for the second-string Indian team after they were handed a rude shock in the opening game and now they have to raise their game in the second T20 to stay afloat in the three match series against minnows Zimbabwe.

It is for the first time that the young team will be tested on the tour after it were faltered on key moments to suffer an unexpected loss in the first T20.
