Fourth One-Day International, Bulawayo

India thrashed Zimbabwe by nine wickets in the fourth One-Day International in Bulawayo, moving into a 4-0 lead in the five-game series.

Zimbabwe were dismissed for just 144 in 42.4 overs and in reply India raced to 145 for one in 30.5 overs.

Amit Mishra returned three for 25, Ravindra Jadeja two for 28 and Mohit Sharma marked his ODI debut with two for 26.

Elton Chigumbura's 50 not out came too late to make much difference for the hosts, for whom only four players reached double figures.

India then cruised home for the loss of Cheteshwar Pujara's wicket thanks to unbeaten half-centuries by Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina.
