World T20 Series 2022
Super 12, Group 2, Match 42- IND vs ZIM
India (IND) will face Zimbabwe (ZIM) in the 42nd match of the World T20 Series 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Melbourne on Sunday, November 6.
India has performed admirably in the competition, winning three of four matches. They've gelled as a team, with Virat Kohli and Arshdeep Singh shining out with bat and bowling, respectively. A victory guarantees India a spot in the semi-finals as the group winners. They face a temperamental Zimbabwean side that has gone hot and cold throughout the competition. While they have lost their last two games against Netherlands and Bangladesh, Zimbabwe's only win of the Super 12 phase came against Pakistan. Although they will head into this game as the underdogs, Zimbabwe will bank on its pace prowess to pave the way for a surprise win. With both teams eyeing a major win in this game, a fascinating contest awaits at the iconic MCG on Sunday.
