Match Preview

After a successful campaign at the T20 World Cup 2024 in the USA and West Indies, India are set to travel to Zimbabwe. The Men in Blue will be up against the Zimbabwe team for a five-match T20I series at the Harare Sports Club in Harare. The series is set to begin on July 6 and will come to an end on July 14. The Indian contingent will be led by young batting star Shubman Gill in the absence of senior players. Not only this, but since the T20 World Cup 2024 winning captain Rohit Sharma also announced his retirement from the format alongside teammate Virat Kohli, it is yet to be seen who will be at the team’s helm in the shortest format. 

For now, Shubman Gill will lead the side under the guidance of former India great VVS Laxman. 

Toss Prediction

India and Zimbabwe have been up against each in eight T20I fixtures so far. If we talk about their last five meetings, Zimbabwe skipper came out victorious in three of the tosses, whereas the Indian skipper managed to win two of the five tosses. Looking at the previous record our  toss prediction  saying Zimbabwe will win this toll. Considering the head-to-head record, we think host captain Sikandar Raza would win the toss over Shubman Gill to further extend his toss-winning streak. 

Win Possibility

As mentioned, India and Zimbabwe have been up against each other in eight T20I fixtures thus far. Out of those eight meetings, India have had an upper hand over their counterparts with six wins. On the other hand, India recently lifted the T20 World Cup after a long gap of 17 years, and needless to say, Shubman Gill and Co. would head into the series high on confidence. 

The upcoming clashes are going to be epic, promising high-octane cricketing drama to fans and cricket lovers across the globe. India will rely heavily on their batting force including the likes of Shubman Gill, Sai Sudarshan and Jitesh Sharma. Not only this, but debutant Riyan Parag would also be expected to deliver IPL 2024-like performance during the campaign. 

Apart from batters, names like Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Ravi Bishnoi and Mukesh Kumar would aim to dismantle Zimbabwe’s batting. The Indian team looks a perfect blend of youth and experienced players and are highly likely to dominate the upcoming series. 

Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
