ZIM vs IND, 3rd T20I



Team India will cross swords with Zimbabwe for the 3rd game of the five-match T20I series. The game is scheduled at the Harare Sports Club on Wednesday, July 10. The Men in Blue suffered a humiliating defeat in the first game before pulling off a stunning 100-run victory over the hosts in the second game. Star opener Abhishek Sharma stole the headlines with his fabulous hundred coming off a duck in the first encounter. Also, Ruturaj Gaikwad added 77* runs and Rinku quick fired 48* runs at the end to take India to a total of 234 runs in the second match, 

Shubman Gill and Co. will hope to continue with the same momentum in the third match. Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube are expected to replace Dhruv Jurel and Sai Sudharsan in the upcoming fixture. Mukesh Kumar and Avesh Khan were happy shattering timbers constantly and India being in their rhythm would be enjoying their game thus far.  

Zimbabwe need to gain confidence from their first match as the players have a lot of room for improvement. The bowling unit needs to improve more as they leaked a lot of runs in the second game. They will look forward to coming forward as a team and replicating the same performance as they had earlier done in the first match.
