India clinch series of T20

Skipper Suresh Raina led from the front with a blistering 72 as India signed off their Zimbabwe tour with a comprehensive seven-wicket win over the hosts in the second and final Twenty20 International here on Sunday.

Chasing 141, India made 144 for three in 18 overs at the Harare Sports Club ground with Raina dispatching Chris Mpofu to boundary for the winning runs.

The Indians once again displayed a wonderful commitment in the field, stopping everything that came their way and diving and running to convert half chances into wickets. The Zimbabweans on the other hand were exceptional between the wickets and stole some quick singles off the nimble Indian fielders.

India's consecutive win, after a lacklustre show in the ODI tri-series, would do a world of good to the confidence of its youngsters just ahead of the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka.
