IND vs ZIM – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview
India has shown their ferocious form in the ongoing ICC tournament. The only loss they incurred is against South Africa but immediately bounced back by defeating Bangladesh in a close encounter. However, one major concern for team India is that they have won all their games in close encounters except the one against the Netherlands. Their batting lineup is strong but the bowling loses its momentum in between and there is no complete domination on the field.
KL Rahul has regained his form and that will work in the favour of the whole team. He is a strong batter at the start of the game and will always provide momentum to the team. The consistency of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav is working wonders for the team.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh have made a good equation among themselves to bowl some good spells and are now on top of the game. Hardik Pandya is capable of providing some breakthroughs in the middle of the game.
Zimbabwe made headlines after their thrilling win against Pakistan and they carried the winning momentum in the next game as their bowlers looked in top-notch form. They lost the game but at one point, Zimbabwe was very close to scoring a win.
One of the biggest concerns for Zimbabwe is its batting lineup. Their bowlers are doing the job well but somehow the batsmen are not playing at the quality which is at par with the bowlers. In the game against Bangladesh, Zimbabwe lost 4 wickets in the powerplay for just 35 runs and while Sean Williams led the fight for the team from thereon, Zimbabwe ended up losing by 3 runs.
The bowlers are giving a tough fight in every game but winning against India looks like a dream come true. Ngarava, Muzarabani, and Raza are crucial to Zimbabwe’s performance.
IND vs ZIM – ICC T20 World Cup – Probable Playing XI
India: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Shami
Zimbabwe: Craig Ervine (c), Wesley Madhevere, Sean Williams, Regis Chakabva (wk), ikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarava, Blessing Muzarabani
IND vs ZIM – ICC T20 World Cup – Toss Prediction and Pitch Report
MCG offers a good balance between bat and ball. The ground is big and it becomes difficult to score quick boundaries. At the same time, the bowl comes on the bat and has a good bounce. The toss-winning team should opt to bowl first because it will be easier to chase the score.
IND vs ZIM – ICC T20 World Cup – Match Prediction
Zimbabwe has nothing to lose as they are already out of the tournament. They will be leaving Australia with their happiest memory of a win against Pakistan. Considering India is a much stronger team, we predict India’s win on Sunday.
