India will tour Zimbabwe for a three-match ODI series starting on August 18. With most of the senior players from India rested, Zimbabwe might surprise India with a series win. However, it will not be an easy task given the young Indian guns are blazing to get onto the field.
Zimbabwe will enter the ODI series with full confidence after defeating Bangladesh in the ODI series. The young cricketers, backed by the experience of skipper Sikandar Raza, will go hard against the young and new Indian team from August 18.
The matches will be played at Harare Sports Club on August 18, 20 and 22. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Indian side, while Raza is expected to carry on the captaincy stint for the series against India. Zimbabwe is yet to announce the squad for the India ODI series. We have picked three players who have done exceptionally well of late, and are likely to make even pose a threat to India:
1) Innocent Kaia:
Innocent Kaia, the latest sensation of Zimbabwe, played a sensational knock against Bangladesh in the first ODI. The 30-year-old batter has been in exceptional form of late. The batter averages 47 in ODI cricket in five innings.
Kaia played a sensational knock of 110 in the first ODI and helped Zimbabwe triumph over Bangladesh. The Harare-based batter might pose a big threat for India while opening the innings for Zimbabwe. Watch out for him as he might end up getting a century against India too.
