India have not played Zimbabwe in a while in international cricket and their three-game ODI series is a welcome break in the trend. Although India will have a few key members missing on the tour, the Men in Blue still have a brilliant pool of second-string players that is as good as the main team. KL Rahul will lead the visitors and the fans will be happy to see the Indian opener back in the squad after a brief spell on the sidelines with injury. India had fielded their fringe players on their tour of West Indies recently and that ended on a victory note and this series is expected to end on similar lines. Zimbabwe comes into the series on the back of a 2-1 win over Bangladesh and their confidence is certainly high at the moment. Zimbabwe versus India will be telecasted on the Sony Ten network and streamed on Sony Liv app from 12:45 PM IST.

Sikandar Raza is the talisman for Zimbabwe when it comes to their batting. He scored for fun in the recently concluded series versus Bangladesh and he is one player that can hold the innings together. Innocent Kaia and Wesley Madhevere have the potential to score big but need to spend some time in the middle. Brad Evans is a wicket-taking option but needs to work on his economy rate.
K L Rahula and Shikhar Dhawan will open the innings for India with Sanju Samson and Deepak Hooda pushing for inclusion in the middle order. Ishan Kishan will also be pushing for a place in the team but might be left disappointed. Kuldeep Yadav has got an opportunity to impress the team management and all eyes will be on him as he remains the team’s frontline spinner.
