Rahul comes back to his best

Mandeep seizes the opportunity

Then it proved to be nothing but a struggle for the host who kept on losing wickets at regular intervals.

Bumrah once again comes up with a great performance

If it was a Saran who knocked off the Zimbabwe’s top order, then Bumrah was the man who completed the proceedings by knocking down the tail Enders, which included a bowled Chigumbura who was the hero of the last match. Bumrah was deadly consistent with his Yorkers that troubled the Zimbabwe batsman and were not able to deal with the constant lurking threat of Bumrah.

Impressive Chahal

The leg spinner tipped for great things was back to his basics as he gain bowled an impressive spell and took one wicket and was quite economical. This was another impressive performance from the RCB man ad he took the fifth wicket in the Zimbabwe’s inning.

No Chigumbura show this time

KL Rahul – 6

Started his inning with promise and patience, but soon faded trying to experiment a shot a lot different from his style.

The lad played brilliantly in the last two matches, but was poor in the final T20 where he gifted his wicket quite early in the game.

Ambati Raydu – 6

The Mumbai Indian batsmen tried to anchor the inning and were successful too, but soon fall prey while trying to increase the run rate.

Kedar Jadhav – 9

Superb knock by the unlikely hero of the last match, anchored the inning just when he was needed that too with a decent strike rate.

MS Dhoni – 4

The Indian skipper was not up to his usual self as he gifted his wicket quite early where he should have built the inning

With Jadhav.

Axar Patel – 8

The all rounder had achieved his career best ranking just before the match and performed brilliantly with both bat and ball making 20 runs and taking a wicket with a steady average.

Dhawal Kulkarni – 8

Kulkarni was good at his usual self by picking up two wickets and conceding 23 runs only that marked a good day for him.

Jasprit Bumrah – 7

Bowled in the death over and did the job that was assigned to him with his accurate line and length, but was unlucky not to pick up any wicket.
