‘Celebrations khatam nahi hui aur…’: Fans left unimpressed as young India handed rude Zimbabwe shock | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: With the country still not done with the T20 World Cup title winning celebrations, a second-string Indian side, full of young stars, was handed a rude and shocking 13-run loss in Harare by an unfancied Zimbabwe side on Saturday.
Full with Gen-Next stars under leadership of Shubman Gill, the Indian team failed to chase down a moderate 116 runs, folding for 102 in the T20I series opener.
As Zimbabwe handed India their first T20I defeat of the year, internet was seemingly upset with the performance of the young stars.
The likes of Abhishek Sharma (0), Riyan Parag (2) and Dhruv Jurel (6), who were handed debuts registered single digit scores, skipper Gill (31), Washington Sundar (27), Ruturaj Gaikwad (7) and Rinku Singh (0) also failed to make a mark.
Slamming the below-par performance of India with the bat, social media had some tough words to say after the defeat.

Zimbabwe skipper Sikandar Raza picked 3 for 25 as his side beat India for their first win over the cricketing powerhouse in 8 years.
Raza led the way for his young side that bowled and fielded with great energy to stun a second-string Indian side.
Tendai Chatara picked 3-16, while Wellington Masakadza and Blessing Muzarabani took one each as India were bowled out in 19.5 overs in 116-run chase.
This was after Zimbabwe scored 115-9 in 20 overs despite wrist spinner Ravi Bishnoi picking 4-13 in four overs.
It was the lowest T20 total defended in Harare as India’s 12-match unbeaten run came to an end.
