After failing to turn up in the ODI series against India, hosts Zimbabwe decided to shock the visitors by winning the first T20I of the three-match series. Elton Chigumbura starred with 54 runs off 26 balls, and the Zimbabwean bowlers put up a disciplined show to restrict India to 168/6 in 20 overs.
Well, that’s what they thought
Zimbabwe lose their first wicket, will be looking to build on this and lose a few more quickly. #ZIMvIND— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) June 18, 2016
Elton Chigumbara getting back into his stride
Elton Chigumbura hit 7 sixes today to equal the record of a batsman hitting most sixes in a Twenty20 International against India.#ZIMvIND— Mayur bayas (@cricrazymyu) June 18, 2016
Amen to that!
First century great, duck not so!
First-ball duck for Lokesh Rahul. It is first time that India have lost wicket on the very first ball of the innings in T20Is. #IndvsZim— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) June 18, 2016

The world wakes up now
And suddenly, everyone realizes that there was a match today. #ZIMvIND— Virat Kohli (@lmVK0hli) June 18, 2016
Someone should have suggested this earlier
If they'd made the first ODI so exciting they'd have more viewership for the remaining matches #INDvsZIM— TheGoanPatiala (@TheGoanPatiala) June 18, 2016
