Match Prediction:

One week following India’s T20 World Cup triumph in Barbados, they return to international action with their first game of their tour to Zimbabwe. This T20I series will feature five matches; this first game will take place Saturday afternoon at the Harare Sports Club. Keep reading as we preview this collision. The game on July 6 starts at 13:00 local time.

Although many analysts believe Zimbabwe has great potential on their side and is far stronger than some of the teams who did take part in the T20 World Cup, they failed not qualify for the event. If they want to lead the series, they must be at their best all through this game.

Though only Shivam Dube from the side who won the T20 World Cup for India is in their roster for this series, they still possess the kind of depth many teams could only dream of. India excels.

Winning Chances:

INDIA
85.5%
ZIMBABWE
14.5%

Toss Prediction:

The side fielding first has won the past six T20Is at the Harare Sports Stadium; so, we are expecting that both captains would desire to field first before this game.

Weather Report:

Saturday afternoon in Harare had cloudless sky with a temperature probably about 25 degrees during this T20I. The humidity will be low and the breeze will be somewhat weak.

Pitch Report:

We do expect some turn for the spinners, even though typically the fast bowlers perform the most well at the Harare Sports Stadium. In this game, a par score will minimum be 160.

INDIA TEAM NEWS

With Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja all declaring their retirement from T20I cricket following the T20 World Cup triumph, this series offers a chance for a new generation of players to make a move for a spot in India’s team. For this game Shubman Gill commands a totally fit team.

INDIA Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sai Sudharsan, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Rinku Singh, Dhruv Jurel, Washington Sundar, Abhishek Sharma, Avesh Khan, Tushar Deshpande, Ravi Bishnoi

ZIMBABWE TEAM NEWS

Before this series, Zimbabwe revealed a 17-man team that looked to emphasize younger players and suggest a trend away from the likes of Craig Ervine and Sean Williams. Sikandar Raza will lead them across this five match series.

ZIMBABWE Predicted Playing 11

Innocent Kaia, Clive Madande (wk), Sikandar Raza (c), Brian Bennett, Wesley Madhevere, Faraz Akram, Jonathan Campbell, Blessing Muzarabani, Luke Jongwe, Richard Ngarava, Tendai Chatara

🏆 India vs Zimbabwe Prediction:

With India the current T20 World Cup champions, Shubman Gill’s squad will get much of attention during this series. Zimbabwe has home advantage, but the players from India have far more big game experience. Though we are supporting India to win this opening, we expect a close contest.
