Indian pacer Mukesh Kumar left an indelible mark during India's 2nd T20I clash against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club on July 7. 

After dismissing Innocent Kaia earlier in the innings, Mukesh Kumar struck again, claiming the crucial wicket of Brian Bennet.

India have had set a formidable target of 235 runs for the hosts, and Mukesh Kumar's contributions with the ball were pivotal in restricting Zimbabwe's response. Bennet, known for his aggressive batting, briefly unsettled Mukesh Kumar with two consecutive sixes in the third over.

Undeterred, Mukesh Kumar retaliated swiftly, adjusting his length to deceive Bennet, who attempted a pull shot but failed to connect as the ball crashed into the middle stump.

Bennet's cameo, characterized by 26 runs off just 9 balls, was curtailed abruptly by Mukesh Kumar's precise bowling. The timely wickets of both Kaia and Bennet underscored Mukesh Kumar's ability to strike at crucial moments.

At the time of writing, ZIM are at 48 for 4 in 5 overs, with Wessly Madhevere and Johnathan Campbell at the crease.
