Zimbabwe will be playing against India in the third T20I of the five-match series at the Harare Sports Club in Harare. After registering a famous win in the first T20I, Zimbabwe lost the second match of the series to India by a big margin of 100 runs. The Indian cricket team bounced back strongly from an early setback in the first T20I, ensuring that they level the series at 1-1.

Pitch Report

Just a single pitch was used for the first two T20I matches of the series at the Harare Sports Club in Harare, which produced contrasting totals of 115 and 234 runs respectively. With the expectation of a fresh pitch to be used for the third T20I of the Zimbabwe versus India series, the average first innings score of 157 runs could prove to be defendable, especially if the early morning moisture stays intact on the playing surface.

Team Analysis


The batting lineup of Zimbabwe has been a big let down in the first two T20I matches of the series except for Brian Bennett, who struck a few lusty blows against the Indian pacers. The Zimbabwe bowlers had two completely different sets of results in the first couple of matches of the series, bundling out the opposition for just 103 runs before conceding 234/2.

Match Prediction

zim vs ind 3rd t20i match prediction


Zimbabwe will have to bat exceptionally well against a formidable Indian bowling attack, to push for another win in the series. That’s why, the third T20I is definitely for the taking as far as Team India are concerned, if they play anywhere close to their best level against Zimbabwe.
