Brief Scores: India (234/2) Beat Zimbabwe 134 All Out (Avesh 3/15, Mukesh 3/37) By 100 runs To Level 5-Match Series 1-1

Zimbabwe have been blown away in the second T20I as India bowled them out for 134 in 18.4 overs thanks to a superb bowling show from pacers Avesh Khan and Mukesh Kumar, both of whom picked up 3 wickets each for the young Men in Blue.

Wessly Madhevere (43), Luke Jongwe (33) and Brian Bennett (26) were the only three batters who managed to get starts but couldn't convert them into big scores like Abhishek Sharma and Ruturaj Gaikwad did for India.

India innings:

Abhishek Sharma and Ruturaj Gaikwad took Zimbabwe's bowlers to the cleaners as India plundered 235 off their allotted 20 overs in the 2nd T20I in Harare on Sunday. Abhishek, who registered a duck on debut, hammered a century off only 46 deliveries and shared a 137-run partnership with Ruturaj Gaikwad, who stayed unbeaten on 77. Rinku Singh equally punished Zimbabwe's bowlers, clobbering 48 off 22 balls.

Team India will look to bounce back in the 5-match series against Zimbabwe after losing the opening clash in Harare less than 24 hours ago. The Men in Blue recently won the T20 World Cup in the West Indies but lost the first match after becoming champions.

Captain Shubman Gill will look to replicate his predecessor Rohit Sharma's success in the shorter format when his team takes to the field.
