Zimbabwe and India will lock horns with each other for a three-match ODI series at Harare Sports Club on August 18, 20, and 22nd. The Indian team have already reached Harare and are toiling hard with only a day to go. Zimbabwe team are stepping on to the series after a mammoth ODI series win against Bangladesh.
The squad looks balanced for both the teams. And India are currently favorites to win the series 3-0. However, Zimbabwe player Ryan Burl earlier opined that his team can upset India in the series. Chances, though, aren’t too high.
Let’s take a look at predicted XI for the first ODI scheduled to take place on August 18, at Harare Sports Club:
Openers – KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan:
KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan might as well open the innings for India. KL Rahul is all set to step on to the field after a long time and will look to do well as an opener. Shikhar Dhawan, on the other hand, had a brilliant ODI series against West Indies. The duo might look to make the most out of the opportunity and set up a strong foundation for India.
