It is India’s eighth 10-wicket win in One-Day Internationals. Their first 10-wicket win over Zimbabwe came at Sharjah on November 13, 1998 while they beat Zimbabwe by 10 wickets for the second time at Harare on June 15, 2016.
** Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill’s unbroken 192-run stand in 30.5 overs for the first wicket is India’s second best opening stand against Zimbabwe after a 197-run unbroken stand in 30 overs between Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar at Sharjah on November 13, 1998. It is India’s fourth best stand against Zimbabwe in One-Day Internationals.
** Brad Evans and Richard Ngarava set a new record for the ninth wicket for Zimbabwe against India by adding 70 runs. They erased the previous best of 53 runs between Paul Strang and Andy Whittall at Bulawayo on September 26, 1998. It was also Zimbabwe’s fourth-best ninth-wicket stand in One-Day Internationals.
** India's bowling average during the first 10 overs in ODIs this year is 24.32, their best in a calendar year since 23.68 in 2003. They averaged 169.33 in 2020 and 95.00 in 2021, their worst years with the ball during the first ten overs period.
** Richard Ngarava’s 34 off 42 balls with three fours and one six is the second highest score by a Zimbabwean number 10 batter against India in ODIs. Dougie Marillier’s unbeaten 56 in 30 minutes off 24 balls with 10 fours and a six at Faridabad on March 7, 2002 is the highest at this number.
