India Vs Zimbabwe 1st ODI Highlights

KL Rahul (Man of the Match): “I enjoyed my batting. The wicket was tough, so I couldn’t be complacent. I wanted to play out the new ball, and then take it from there. I’m really satisfied with the way I carried on and stayed not out in the end. I just got told by the manager that I was the first Indian to get a century on debut. I wasn’t thinking much, there was just one way to get to a century. I wanted to hold my shape and just hit it.”

MS Dhoni (India’s skipper): “It was a very good performance. I felt the fast bowlers did well, and were backed by the spinners even though there wasn’t much help for them. A win first up is important in a three-game series. The batsmen did a very good job, but the bowlers laid the ground work.”

Graeme Cremer (Zimbabwe’s skipper): “We didn’t get enough runs. Maybe if we would have got to 220, it could have been a different story. We lost a couple of wickets to good balls, but few of the guys didn’t kick on after getting 20s and 30s. Indian batsmen showed how easy batting can get once you get in. Our seamers bowled well, but it just didn’t go our way.”
