T20 World Cup: India defeat Zimbabwe to top Group 2 table


India finished top of the group, soaking up the cheers of a crowd of 82,507 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, with a 71-run demolition of Zimbabwe.

India posted 186 for five after Rohit Sharma asked Zimbabwe to bowl first, with KL Rahul (51) and Suryakumar Yadav (61 not out) slogging seven sixes between them in a range-hitting clinic.

India's pacemen then routed Zimbabwe, who collapsed to 36 for five before being bowled out for 115 after 17.2 overs.

India will now take on England in Adelaide.
