India's batting sensation Abhishek Sharma failed to replicate his previous match's knock during the 3rd T20I against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club on Wednesday, July 10. 

After winning the toss, India opted to bat first, but Zimbabwe quickly sought a breakthrough. Sikandar Raza drew first blood for Zimbabwe, dismissing the Indian opener Yashasvi Jaiswal after the powerplay. Raza continued his impressive spell, claiming Abhishek Sharma as his second wicket in his next over. 

In the 11th over, Raza bowled a short delivery on the middle stump. Sharma attempted a pull shot but only managed to sky it to deep mid-wicket, where Marumani safely caught it, marking an easy dismissal.

However, in no time, he hit it very high and landed safely in the hands of a deep mid-wicket fielder. Tadiwanashe Marumani makes no mistake in claiming the easiest wicket.

This wicket was pivotal as it brought Zimbabwe back into the game, putting pressure on India's batters. At the time of writing, India are at 153 for 3 in 18 overs, with Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sanju Samson at the crease.
