Team India are all set to take on Zimbabwe for a three-match ODI series. Harare Sports Club will host all the matches in the series. The three matches will be played on August 18th, 20th and 22nd. Team India are already on their way to Zimbabwe. Much to their delight, the players met Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan at the Mumbai airport right before they left for Zimbabwe.

The actor took to Twitter to shed light on the meet-up. He said that he was like a boy in a candy shop at 4 am. The actor had a chat about the Zimbabwe tour and also mentioned that Shikhar Dhawan came up with a few riddles for him.

“At 4 in the morning I was like a boy in a candy shop. Got very excited to meet and chat with our men in blue About their upcoming tour. Also @SDhawan25 asked me a couple of riddles,” Dhawan tweeted.

Team India are on their way to Zimbabwe. And they will look to maximize the use of the Tour. Zimbabwe head coach Dave Houghton said that they’ll look to challenge India harder and win the series. He added that the team are all set to take on one of the best sides in the world.

“Having watched so much of Indian cricket and the IPL over the last few years, we know that India could probably put out three or four sides and perhaps be first, second, third, fourth in world cricket. Whatever side they send to us, we know it is going to be a strong and experienced side in terms of the amount of international cricket they play and it will be tough work for us,” Houghton was quoted as saying by SportStar.
