In what is the final Super 12 fixture at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022, India will take on Zimbabwe at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday. It's been such a great tournament that still only one team has guaranteed themselves a place in the final four which is New Zealand. However, by the time this match commences, at least two more semifinal berths will be sealed.
For India, it's a simple equation- win to secure a place in the knockout stage and even though they will face a team who have already been eliminated from the race to the final four, Zimbabwe would have the perfect opportunity to make an already historic campaign all the more memorable for themselves by upsetting the number 1 team in the world. Will they be able to do so at the iconic MCG? We shall find out this Sunday.
With the kind of form India's batters have been in great, it is advisable to stack one's Fantasy Team with Indian batters especially their top order with each of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav having at least one big innings their belt. Kohli and SKY with a few impressive knocks already can also be considered for the captain or the vice-captain candidate in one's Fantasy side.
For Zimbabwe, Sikandar Raza has been the man to go both with the bat and ball and can be another candidate for the captain or vice-captain's role because, unlike Virat or SKY, he can chip in with both bat and ball. Sean Williams and Wessly Madhevere are among other top run-getters.
As far as the bowling is concerned, Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya have been India's best bets. So Hardik as an all-round option could be too costly to drop. One between Mohammed Shami and Bhuneshwar Shami can also be picked with Blessing Muzarabani the highest wicket-taker from Zimbabwe in the tournament.
Probable Playing XIs:
India: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh
Zimbabwe: Wesley Madhevere, Craig Ervine (c), Regis Chakabva (wk), Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarava, Blessing Muzarabani
