Bulawayo: His batting is the lone positive for Zimbabwe in what has been a thoroughly disappointing ODI series against India and all-rounder Elton Chigumbura feels the lack of application on part of the batsmen has played a part in his side's dismal outing.

The all-rounder, who was unbeaten on 50 as Zimbabwe disintegrated in the fourth ODI, is their leading run-scorer in the series with 142 runs.

Besides working hard, I think the guys just need to may be take a little bit of time at the wicket. It all comes together when you stay out there," Chigumbura said.
