India look for a series wipeout against Zim

After a 3-0 ODI whitewash and a win in the first T20 International, India would be looking to continue their dominance and complete the clean sweep when they take on a hapless Zimbabwe in the second and final T20 International cricket match here on Sunday.

Despite showing an initial spark in the first one-dayer, Zimbabwe quickly fizzled out against India. On Sunday will be their last chance to get their act together and go for a consolation victory in front of their home crowd. But it would certainly be an uphill task for the hosts to lift themselves up and go all guns blazing against a confident Indian side, who in turn would be eyeing to end their campaign on a high.

Zimbabwe will have to play out of their skins and latch on to their chances, which they have missed so far in the tournament, in order to topple India.

The Indians have hardly any concerns as every member of the side has chipped in with useful contributions till now.

Although India fielded a second-string team, they had little trouble overpowering the Zimbabweans. Even the injury to in-form batsman Rayudu, who won the Man of the Series award for his performance in the ODIs, had little impact as his replacement Manish Pandey came good on debut itself with a 71-run knock in the third ODI. India fielded as many as five T20 international debutants in the previous game but their experience of playing in IPL made the transition look like a cake walk.
