HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) India took four wickets in four balls and swept the one-day international series 3-0 against Zimbabwe with a crushing 10-wicket win on Wednesday.

Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer won his first toss of the series and chose to bat in the third ODI. At 104-3 it looked the right decision before the hosts collapsed to 104-7 in the 34th over.

Zimbabwe was all out for 123 in 42.2 overs and India easily reached 126-0 in only 21.5 overs.

India's only change from its eight-wicket win on Monday in the second ODI saw newcomer Faiz Fazal replace Karun Nair, while Zimbabwe made five changes.

Fazal hit an undefeated 55, and fellow opener Lokesh Rahul was 63 not out, as India won with nearly 30 overs to spare.

Vusi Sibanda was top scorer for Zimbabwe with 38. Jasprit Bumrah took 4-22 in 10 overs for India.

India won Saturday's first ODI by nine wickets.
