Dhawan made a steady century which included 11 fours and 2 sixes and fell for 116 runs from 127 deliveries. Dinesh Karthik proved to be an able partner for Dhawan during second ODI as he made a well paced 69 runs in 74 balls. Zimbabwe were a bit generous with their bowling too as they gave 28 runs extra. Vinay Kumar gave some last over fireworks as India finished with a total of 294 runs on the scoreboard.
Indian bowling was well disciplined and new face Jaidev Unadkat emerged as the pick of the bowlers with his 4 wickets, missing out on a hat trick on the last ball. Sibanda and once again Chigumbura played well for Zimbabwe, while Utseya got his fourth ODI half century as well. Eventually, India got a comprehensive 58 runs win in the second ODI.
