India and Zimbabwe will face each other in the second ODI on Saturday (August 20) at Harare Sports Club. The first ODI fared out to be a great outing for India. Deepak Chahar, Axar Patel, and Prasidh Krishna picked three wickets each, denying Zimbabwe to post a big total on the scoreboard. Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill then put on an exhibition of boundaries in the second innings and helped India register a 10-wicket win.
Indian batting order looks extremely strong for the current series and we might be in for some exciting batting display in the second ODI. Here are the potential three batters who can pile up the most runs for India in the second ODI against Zimbabwe:
1) Shubman Gill:
The Punjab-born Shubman Gill is in exceptional form and made the best use of the opportunity in the ODI series against the West Indies. The 23-year-old was awarded the Player of the Series against the Caribbean and carried on with this form in the first ODI against Zimbabwe as well as played an unbeaten 82-run knock.
Given the kind of form he is in, he might end up amassing the most number of runs for India in the second ODI against Zimbabwe. The Gujarat batter will march on to the game on the back of a solid fifty in the first ODI. It won’t be surprising if the batter emulates the same intent in the next match as well.
