India closes in on series win in Zimbabwe

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) -- India closed in on a series win as legspinner Amit Mishra took 4-47 and Zimbabwe stumbled to 183 all out batting first in the third one-day international on Sunday.

India had early success after choosing to bowl, removing openers Vusi Sibanda and Sikandar Raza in the first two overs to leave the struggling Zimbabweans 2-2 at Harare Sports Club.

Hamilton Masakadza (38), Brendan Taylor (23) and top scorer Sean Williams (45) launched a brief recovery for the Zimbabweans, but Williams' run out in the 35th over left the home team on 133-8 and with little chance of posting a competitive score.

World champion India is expected to cruise to victory and clinch the five-match one-day series 3-0 after comfortable wins in the first two games.
