3.40pm So India put on a resounding performance to level the series 1-1. After a superb bowling performance, KL Rahul and Mandeep Singh put on a century stand to complete a comfortable victory. Zimbabwe were bad today, they were never in it but still have a strong chance to win this series. It is also India's first 10-wicket victory in this format.

Barinder Sran is the Man of the Match on his T20 debut: "It was fun, the ball swung. There was no pressure, the debut came late. Not concentrating on pace but on swinging the ball."

Graeme Cremer: "We started slowly and lost wickets at crucial times. Disappointing, the pitch misbehaved a bit but getting bowled out for 99, just not good enough. Final on Wednesday, we still excited."

MS Dhoni: "Bowlers started it all, important to start well. I was a bit worried that it was the third match on the same wicket. Backed by some good fielding, I emphasized that we hard to run harder than we did in the last game. In the shorter format, it is very important."
