India's bowlers impress Dhoni


MS Dhoni hailed the performance of India's bowlers as they emphatically levelled the three-match Twenty 20 series with Zimbabwe after a 10-wicket win.

After dominating the one-day international series, India suffered a shock defeat in the first T20 match on Saturday, but bounced back in style to crush their hosts in Harare on Monday.

India's attack bowled with precision throughout with Barinder Sran and Jasprit Bumrah the shining lights as Zimbabwe finished 99-9 from their 20 overs.

Mandeep Singh and KL Rahul enjoyed an unbeaten century partnership to guide India home with ease, but it was his side's performance in the field that particularly impressed Dhoni.

"Yes it's a big victory and the bowlers really made my job easy," said the India captain. 

"It was good that we restricted them to less than a 100 and I feel that the bowlers really gave their all.

"We spoke about starting well with the ball and we did that and we came out on top. 

"The last game will be as crucial and we can't relax, we have to make sure that we keep improving."

Host skipper Graeme Cremer was understandably disappointed by his side's display as the worries from the ODI series resurfaced.

"We started off slowly and we lost wickets at crucial times in the game, 99 all out was a poor performance by the whole team," he admitted. 

"I feel that the wicket was a bit tricky in the beginning and we failed to spend time out there. Credit to India as they really bowled well and put us under pressure."
