India wins series with three-run victory


HARARE: Kedar Jadhav’s brisk half-century proved the difference as India just held off Zimbabwe in the third Twenty20 international at Harare Sports Club on Wednesday to clinch the series 2-1.

Jadhav rescued India from 27 for three after they lost the toss  and were asked to bat, hitting 58 from 42 balls to guide the tourists to a final score of 138 for six.

Vusi Sibanda stroked an attractive 28 on his return from injury and Zimbabwe’s middle order all chipped in, but the hosts still fell narrowly short as they finished on 135 for six to lose by three runs.-APP
