For India, Washington Sundar picked up three wickets, Avesh Khan took two wickets and Khaleel Ahmed picked one.

After winning the toss in the third T20I at Harare while playing against Zimbabwe, Gill decided India will bat first and gave a target of 183 runs for Zimbabwe to chase.

Absent for first T20I matches, Yashasvi Jaiswal joined the India playing XI and opened for the team. He scored 36 off 27, while skipper Shubman Gill (66) scored his first T20I half century in just 36 deliveries as T20I skipper.

Ruturaj played a beautiful innings and scored 49 off 28 deliveries, and missed his half century by just one run. India scored 182/4 in 20 overs.

India's Shubman Gill won the toss for the third T20I at Harare while playing against Zimbabwe. Gill decided to bat first. As expected Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal opened the innings for India. 

Shubman Gill-led team India will take on Zimbabwe for 3rd T20 match at the Harare Sports Ground today. The series is currently evenly poised with both teams winning one match each and the bilateral trophy still being up for grabs. 

Shubman Gill's side will be more emboldened with the addition of World Cup winning trio of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson and Sanju Samson. However, with new players coming into the side, it could be the end of series of some youngsters like Sai Sudarshan, Dhruv Jurel and Riyan Parag. Moreover, there could also be a change in the batting lineup, with Yashasvi Jaiswal set to take the opening berth. 

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, would look like to make a strong comeback after facing a 100 run defeat in the last encounter. In particular, this young Minnows lineup would need to improve their batting performance if they want to stand any chance of defeating the World Champions.

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: What Shubman Gill said about selection headaches for 3rd T20I? 

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Speaking after the 2nd T20I, Gill said, “Yesterday, it was more about not being able to handle the pressure, it's a young side and many of them are new to international exposure. It was actually good to have pressure in the first game and we knew what to expect coming into this game. We have got three matches to go and we are looking forward to them. It's always good to have more options rather than not having options,"

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: ‘World champions played like world champions’ says Zimbabwe skipper Sikandar Raza

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Speaking after the 2nd T20I encounter, Raza said, "The world champions will eventually play like world champions. Dropping catches today certainly hurt us today. I expected 200 on this wicket today but they got 30 runs more. Coming into the chase, I thought it would be a close game but it wasn't to be, the top-order didn't fire. Blessing has grown by leaps and bounds, he is very hungry and his graph will keep going up as long as he stays fit. It's a task we have been talking about since a long time, today we came out positive and played our shots, lot of the issues occurred due to inexperience,"

India vs Zimbabwe Live Score: Speaking ahead of the 1st T20 encounter, Gaikwad said "This is a big topic and I think it's not the right point to think about it. To even compare with him (Kohli) or try to fill in his shoes is relatively very tough and very hard… As I had said in the IPL as well, it is difficult to fill my best shoes as well. Definitely, you want to start your career, you want to start the way you want, you want to play your own game. So that's the priority right now.

"Focus on one game, focus on how you can contribute towards the team in whichever position you play and make sure you are on the winning side more often than not." Gaikwad added
