India crush Zimbabwe in Twenty20 clash

6:38 am on 13 June 2010

The Indian cricket team needed just 15 overs to inflict a crushing six-wicket defeat on Zimbabwe at the Queens Sports Club in the first of two Twenty-20 matches over the weekend.

The Indians restricted a defensive minded Zimbabwe to 111 for 9 in their 20 overs and overtook the poor effort with five overs and much of the afternoon to spare, coasting to 112 for 4.

Yusuf Pathan top-scored with an aggressive 37 not out, and picked up the man of the match award for his efforts.

The Indians play their final on their safari tonight, a game which offers the tourists a good chance to square their overall account with Zimbabwe and make it 2-all from four matches.
