Brendan Taylor (81) and Hamilton Masakadza (46) laid the foundation of the chase, smashing 88 runs in 13 overs.

Craig Ervine (67 not out) and Charles Coventry (32) then held the reins in the middle overs.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma struck a century as India scored 285 for five against Zimbabwe in the opening ODI of the tri-series here Friday.

Sharma made 114 off 199 balls with the help of six fours and four sixes. He got able support from Ravindra Jadeja who scored a run-a-ball 61, smashing five fours.
