Chahar takes three as India bundle out Zimbabwe for 189

Harare, Aug 18 (PTI) Comeback-man Deepak Chahar bowled an incisive opening spell as Indian bowlers dominated proceedings to bowl out Zimbabwe for a sub-par 189 in the first One Day International, here on Thursday.

It was the record ninth-wicket stand of 70 runs between Brad Evans (33) and Richard Ngarava (32) that took Zimbabwe close to the 200-run mark.

Making a comeback to international cricket after a good six months, it didn't take long for Chahar to find his rhythm on a Harare Sports Club track that offered steep bounce. The balmy morning conditions aided quality swing bowling.
