CWC15 Live - Raina Dhoni Partnership Seals Win For India vs Zim

#Zim vs #Ind, #EdenPark, #Auckland

#SureshRaina and #MSDhoni's record partnership stand ensured India overcame initial hiccups to chase a competitive 288 vs Zimbabwe in a Pool B match at #CWC15

At 92 for 4, they were in serous trouble and an upset threat loomed large.
This is where #MSDhoni has transformed this India team into believing they can come back from any situation. This is the power and belief of this man. And to top it all, he shows how it is to be done! 

Raina and Dhoni battled initial nerves and tests thrown by the Zimbabwean bowlers at them.
Once in, they dug in and went about chasing down the required target in a clinical fashion with an over to spare.

Along the way, Raina collected his first World Cup ton. A great memory this.
Dhoni was his usual self. Restrained and mature all throughout before exploding towards the end.

Raina's 110* meant he took the Man of the Match award ahead of #BrendanTaylor, whose innings was once in a lifetime stuff.

Zim: 287 all out, 49 overs
Ind: 288 for 4, 48.4 overs

Man of the Match: Suresh Raina

India now move on to the #MCG to play their quarter final match against the in-form and spirited #Bangladesh outfit raring to go. They will need to get their bearings right for that one because in the knockouts you don't have second chances!
