What a brutal end to what has been a lop-sided one-day series between India and Zimbabwe, with MS Dhoni and co. demolishing their opponents with a 10-wicket win to complete a 3-0 whitewash! Both the openers remain unbeaten after bringing up their respective boundaries, as India effect their sixth 10-wicket win overall, and their second against Zimbabwe.

Further proof of KL Rahul's spectacular start to his ODI career!

After 22 overs,India 126/0 ( Lokesh Rahul 63 , Faiz Fazal 55)

Fazal joins the exclusive club of Indian batsmen to have scored fifty on ODI debut, getting to the milestone in 58 deliveries at the start of the 21st over, as India waltz their way towards a major victory here! Fazal, who was drafted into the side in place of Karun Nair for the third ODI, has made the most of the opportunity granetd to him, and perhaps has grabbed the attention of the national selectors. 

Meanwhile, Rahul smashes a massive six — his second in the innings — over long-on, before Fazal fittingly hits the winning boundary towards midwicket to wrap up a crushing 10-wicket victory to complete a 3-0 sweep in the ODI series. 

Rahul. Fazal. Or Bumrah. Who will be the Man of the Match today?

First Rahul, and now Fazal!

After 20 overs,India 109/0 ( Lokesh Rahul 52 , Faiz Fazal 49)

Rahul smashes the first six of the Indian innings by dancing down the track, and lofting the Cremer delivery over the umpire's head. He survives after a mis-hit in the last ball of the 16th over however, as he top-edges the ball, which lands in the vacant deep backward point region. Unnecessary stuff by Rahul, who is only a few runs away from getting to the 50-run mark for the second time this series. However, it appears as if he is in a hurry to wrap things up right now. Fazal gets his first six of the day by coming down the track, and launching Cremer over long-on to clear the long-on boundary! The southpaw opener brings up the 100 for India in the 19th over with an exquisite cover drive, and is stranded on 49 from 57 balls at the end of 20 overs. 

India need 15 to win from 30 overs, with 10 wickets in hand.

After 15 overs,India 71/0 ( Lokesh Rahul 36 , Faiz Fazal 28)

KL Rahul brings up the fifty opening stand with Fazal in the 13th over with a straight drive, before hammering two more consecutive boundaries as Mupariwa concedes 13 runs off the 13th over. Having batted patiently in the first few overs of the day, the opening pair are starting to up the ante at the moment, and it's only a matter of time before the pair smash their way towards the target. 

India need 53 to win from 35 overs. 

17:20 (IST)
17:08 (IST)

After 10 overs,India 43/0 ( Lokesh Rahul 15 , Faiz Fazal 22)

Fazal executes another exquisite drive, this time piercing the covers off Madziva in the eighth over to bring up his second boundary of the day. The Vidarbha opener is performing quite well so far. One wonders if he can do a Rahul, and make the most of his ODI debut with a ton? Or do I sound too far-fetched? Meanwhile the duo put up the best powerplay performance in the series so far, guiding their side to 43/0 at the end of the 10th over.

India need 81 to win from 40 overs.

Highlights

Preview Having already pocketed the series, India are expected to test their bench strength as they aim for a third consecutive whitewash of an uninspiring Zimbabwe when they play the third and final One-Day International (ODI) here on Wednesday.

The first two matches turned out to be one-way traffic even for the second string Indian side, who will expect at least some resistance from the hosts in the third ODI. This will be followed by three Twenty20 Internationals.

On Monday, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni hinted at making some changes in the playing eleven after the team clinched the series 2-0 on the back of two easy wins at the Harare Sports Club.

Going into Wednesday's final tie, India are expected to tinker with the opening combination of Lokesh Rahul and Karun Nair, with the former hammering a century on debut in the first ODI.

Uncapped Faiz Fazal and Mandeep Singh are expected to get their India caps, replacing Rahul and Ambati Rayudu, who have got substantial time in the middle.

Should these team changes be made, Fazal is expected to open with Nair while Mandeep could be the choice for the No.3 slot.

In the bowling department, it could be a toss among the medium pace trio of Barinder Sran, Dhawal Kulkarni and Jasprit Bumrah with Jaydev Unadkat and bowling all-rounder Rishi Dhawan waiting for a chance.

Off-spinner Jayant Yadav could also bag his first India cap if leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal or left-armer Axar Patel is left out.

On the other hand, Zimbabwe will be hoping from a better show from their batsmen to give the bowlers a decent score to defend.

Vusi Sibanda's half-century in the second match gave the hosts something to cheer about, but the collective failure of the other batsmen has only helped India's cause.

On the bowling front, skipper Graeme Cremer will be hoping for a more consistent effort from the new-ball bowlers who have so far been easily milked by the visiting batsmen.

Squads: 
India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain and wk), Lokesh Rahul, Faiz Fazal, Manish Pandey, Karun Nair, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Mandeep Singh, Rishi Dhawan, Jasprit Bumrah, Jayant Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Axar Patel.

Zimbabwe: Graeme Cremer (captain), Tendai Chatara, Chamu Chibhabha, Elton Chigumbura, Tendai Chisoro, Craig Ervine, Neville Madziva, Timycen Maruma, Hamilton Masakadza, Wellington Masakadza, Peter Moor, Twanada Mupariwa, Richard Mutumbami (wk), Taurai Muzarabani, Vusimuzi Sibanda, Sikandar Raza, Donald Tiripano, Sean Williams.
