ZIM vs IND Preview
- With a victory in the second ODI, India’s winning streak against Zimbabwe rises to 14 games.
- In each of their previous five ODI matches against India, Zimbabwe was knocked out for fewer than 200 runs.
- So far in this series, no Zimbabwean player has scored fifty goals.
In the third and final ODI, Zimbabwe will host India at the Harare Sports Club in Harare. After winning the first two games, the visitors had already clinched the series victory. On Thursday, India won the first ODI by a margin of 10 wickets. In a tighter match on Saturday, India prevailed by five wickets. At 09:15 local time, the final ODI will start.
Zimbabwe performed better on Saturday, cutting the loss from the game on Thursday in half. Even if they managed to win this last ODI, it would still come as a massive surprise.
In the second game of the series, India bowled Zimbabwe out more quickly and for fewer runs, although they were less effective at the plate. In this conflict, we anticipate them to be more dominant in both fields.
ZIM vs IND Weather Report
The temperature will only be 15 degrees for game ball one, and it won’t be as hot overall as it was on Saturday.
ZIM vs IND Match Toss Prediction
India has won the toss both times, and the visiting team has elected to field first. We anticipate that both captains will prefer to bowl first because the morning has the finest bowling conditions.
ZIM vs IND Pitch Report
Most wickets in the previous game were taken by pace bowlers, and we anticipate the same will be true in this contest. Off the pitch, India’s top spinners will still be able to produce turns.
