After thrashing England and the West Indies, India eye a series win against Zimbabwe as well. They have a really good team and an equally able leader in KL Rahul. Shikhar Dhawan will also be there to assist Rahul and the team. Meanwhile, for Zimbabwe, Sikandar Raza and captain Chakabva will be the men to rely upon. With the first ODI set to be played on 18 August, a high-scoring game will be on the cards.
The Harare pitch will offer runs to the batters, so having more of them in the fantasy XI will earn valuable points. From the Indian camp, captain KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, and Deepak Hooda will be really good choices for the fantasy team as these have the caliber to score runs. Meanwhile, from the hosts’ camp, Sikandar Raza, Innocent Kaia, and captain Regis Chakabva can be picked.
In bowling, spinners will be crucial so having the likes of Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Madhevere, and Victor Nyuachi can prove to be wise. Bowlers like Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur can also earn valuable points.
