ZIM vs IND: Watch - Shubman Gill takes a sensational diving catch to dismiss centurion Sikandar Raza
KL Rahul-led Indian team went on to clash with Zimbabwe in the 3rd and final match of the three-match ODI series on 22nd August, Monday. Coming to the game, once again it was KL Rahul who won the toss and this time the Indian skipper opted to bat. Batting first, India posted a well challenging total of 289 runs on the board.
Shubman Gill smashed his maiden hundred in One-day Internationals and ended up his inning, scoring 130 runs off 97 balls which consisted of 15 fours and a six. Chasing the target, India got a good start from Deepak Chahar and others have also done well with the ball in the middle overs of the game.
However, Sikandar Raza seemed to be in different touch as he took on the Indian bowlers and scored 115 runs for his side. Despite his prolific performance with the bat, Zimbabwe lost the match as India whitewashed the hosts by 3-0.
Got some time out in the middle with the bat: KL Rahul
Winning the match, the skipper of the Indian team, KL Rahul shared a lot about his and their team's performance in this series in the post-match presentation. "Feels good, we came here with a good ideas. We wanted to be out in the middle and use this time.
They have been very professional, very happy with the result. They took the game deep, we would have liked to finish the game earlier. The bowers were tested and they held their nerves," KL Rahul was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"Fielded about 120 overs, got some time out in the middle with the bat. I am tired coming back after a couple of months. But this is what we all want to do, playing for India.
(On Gill) He's been batting well since the IPL. Very pleasing to the eye. Not seen him over-confident. That requires composure, to show that kind of temperament is good," he added.
During the game, Shubman Gill changed the face of the match when he took a stunning catch off dangerous Sikandar Raza while diving forward. That catch helped India to whitewash Zimbabwe in the final One-day game.
