India Beats Zimbabwe ~ Kagiso Rabada Makes Dream Debut

Posted on the 10 July 2015 by Sampathkumar Sampath
Who will succeed Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe? - has been the most important question within  Zimbabwe over the past few years. This question is so pivotal that policy formulation and implementation have been at a standstill. Political manoeuvring over who will replace Mugabe has paralysed the once impregnable Zanu-PF, and the resulting economic implosion is taking a devastating toll on the people and infrastructure.  Although this may sound irrational in relation to a 91-year-old leader who has been in power for nearly four decades, when it comes to Mugabe nothing ever makes ordinary sense. To the die-hard Indian fan, that is no Q – but who is Donald Tatenda Tiripano was ? – he was partnering the centurion Elton Chingumara as Zimbabwe needed mere 10  off the last 6 deliveries.  Remember, Indians did not do too well with their full team in Bangladesh recently and have embarked this tour with a second string XI which however is expected to do well.  Set to score 256, Zimbabwe almost achieved that with Chingumara’s ton – but a good tight last over from Bhuvanesh Kumar prevented and gave India a close win.  Indian bowlers other than Bhuvi went for runs. Earlier, Ambati Rayudu's  unbeaten 124 off 133 balls  and a good knock of 77 by  Stuart Binny – and their  highest sixth-wicket partnership in ODIs - 160 runs in 147 balls - set Zimbabwe a target of 256 in Harare.  Zimbabwe’s motley medium pacers did well to reduce the side to half but failed to contain in the last few.  M Vijay, playing his first ODI in two years,  failed – so did Manoj Tiwary failing to utilise that elusive chance when it came;  Robin Uthappa made a poor call to be run out for a duck and Kedhar Jadhav fethered an edge to the keeper for 5. India beats Zimbabwe ~ Kagiso Rabada makes dream debut Even as India and Pakistan struggled in Bangladesh, South Africa is asserting their supremach.South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada set a new ODI record today against Bangladesh at Mirpur.   Kagiso Rabada took 6 for 16 - the best figures by any bowler on ODI debut - and became only the second bowler to take a hat-trick on ODI debut, after Taijul Islam, as South Africa burst Bangladesh's bubble after months of success for the hosts in the format. Bangladesh looked a shadow of the line-up that posted had totals over 200 - and twice over 300 - against Pakistan and India recently as slumped to their lowest total this year. South African pacer Kagiso Rabada destroyed the Bangladeshi top-order. He bowled out Tammim Iqbal, Litton Das and Mahmudullah for ducks.  Three batsmen left the crease without scoring a run. In the rain affected match, SA is making a chase and should win easily.  Rabada earlier sliced through Australia's Under-19 team at the age-group World Cup in Dubai in February 2014, his 6 for 25 took his team to a place the senior South Africa side has never been to: a World Cup final. South Africa's Under-19s won that event and Rabada finished as their highest wicket-taker. There are talented youngsters everywhere but …… With regards – S. Sampathkumar
