After the England tour, Indian cricket is all set again to take on Zimbabwe in an upcoming three-match long ODI series that will start just days from now. The team will be playing against zimbabwe in Harare, the capital city of zimbabwe. All matches in the series will be played in Harare Sports Club only.
Indian cricket team and zimbabwe’s team hadn’t crossed paths in a bilateral series for about six years. Largely due to the political situation in the country that apparently destroyed cricket in the country. Former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe was a staunch opponent of cricket, hence the decline of the cricketing culture in the country. India’ last tour to Zimbabwe was in 2016, since when the team never went to Zimbabwe for any tour.
The focus of Zimbabwe vs India series will be on KL Rahul’s re-entry into the team after passing the fitness test. Rahul will take over the captaincy of the Indian team. On the other hand Shikhar Dhawan will be the vice captain in the series.
