India has won the match by 161 runs.

The bowling is in place, now its time for the batting to click, Sehwag to come back in the team and smash Shane Bond all over the park for India to win against New Zealand.

Latest Score: Tri-series in Zimbabwe
India...226-6 in 50 overs
Zimbabwe...43-9 in 18 overs

Irfan has taken five wickets with Agarkar bagging the other four wickets to fall.
This is a fantastic bowling performance by Irfan and Agarkar, even though it comes against a weak Zimbabwe side still this performance will give India the confidence to win against New Zealand in the next match.

Earlier in the day, Dhoni and Yuvraj scored half centuries and shared a 103-run 5th wicket partnership and helped India post a fair enough score of 226-6 in 50 overs. The batsmen would look for a better performance versus the Kiwis in the next match.
