Defending champions Mumbai Indians suffered a third straight defeat after losing against Chennai Super Kings in the 13th match of IPL 7 at Dubai.

The axe has finally fallen on medium pacers Ishant Sharma and Vinay Kumar following their pedestrian bowling against the Aussies.

The one-day series against Zimbabwe is only going from good to better for India. A win at Bulawayo in the fourth ODI was a mere formality of sorts, but it was the manner in which the victory was achieved by India that was most impressive.

India eased to a 9-wicket win over Zimbabwe in the fourth ODI at Bulawayo to find itself on the brink of a cleansweep. Zimbabwe put up its worst batting show, getting bowled out for just 144 runs. India made no fuss of the target and got the runs with 19.5 overs to spare.

The one-day series against Zimbabwe is already in the bag for India with two games in hand, which means there will be no embarrassment for the Indians this time round.

A strong 15-man squad under the leadership of Virat Kohli for this month’s ODI tour of Zimbabwe has been named today by the BCCI.
