Predicting Zimbabwe’s Playing XI for their first T20I against India

Predicting Zimbabwe's Playing XI for their first T20I against India

India’s tour of Zimbabwe starts on July 6 in Harare. The Indian team has reached Zimbabwe to play a 5-match T20I series, which will be super fun to watch. While India’s captain is Shubman Gill, Zimbabwe has put an experienced Sikandar Raza before him. This is Gill’s first series as a captain for India, and he’ll lead a young team against Zimbabwe.

This series will be tough for Gill, but he might not struggle much with players like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sanju Samson. Moreover, it will also be a challenging game for Zimbabwe since they played their lainternational game long ago.

Here’s the predicting 11 of Zimbabwe for the 1st T20I against India:

Top Order:

The top order, comprising players like Innocent Kaia, Tadiwanashe Marumani, and Brian Bennett, is a promising lineup. These excellent batters have the potential to set the stage on fire and give a strong start to the innings. Their proficiency against pace and deep understanding of the game could lead the team to scores of 170+ if they bat first.

Middle Order:

However, Zimbabwe’s middle order, led by players like Sikandar Raza (C), Wesley Madhevere, Clive Madande (WK), and Luke Jongwe, is not as robust. While skipper Raza can contribute some runs, the others are average players who often struggle in the middle overs, weakening the team’s batting. It’s crucial for them to step up in the match if they want to secure victories against India, given India’s formidable bowling strength.

Bowlers:

Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Tendai Chatara, and Richard Ngarava are the four bowlers who are the team’s backbone. Even though, at times, they go for big runs, somehow they manage to get the much-needed breakthrough for the team. They’ll look forward to doing the same in the upcoming series, which will prove to be a disadvantage for India.

Zimbabwe Predicted XI: Innocent Kaia, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Brian Bennett, Sikandar Raza (C), Wesley Madhevere, Clive Madande (WK), Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarava
