Harare. All eyes will be on Indian skipper KL Rahul’s form and fitness ahead of the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe starting on Thursday. Considered an integral part of India’s top order in the T20 format, Rahul will look to regain his familiar rhythm in this series. Rahul returned to the team after two months due to sports hernia surgery. The challenge ahead of him will be to retain the role of opener in the T20 team and bat aggressively with the first ball.

Coach Rahul Dravid and regular captain Rohit Sharma will not only watch Rahul’s runs but they will also want to see how the runs are scored. The Indian team will play the first match against Pakistan in the Asia Cup on August 28. At the Harare Sports Club, Zimbabwe were chasing the target of 300 and 290 runs against Bangladesh recently. In such a situation, Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda and Sanju Samson will try to play big innings.

India also has bowlers like Mohammad Siraj, famous Krishna, Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Yadav, while all-rounders like Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel. On the other hand, after defeating Bangladesh, Zimbabwe will look to challenge a strong team like India. The hosts will expect good batting performances from Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabwa and Innocent Keiya. There was a time when Zimbabwe had players like the Flower brothers (Grant and Andy), Heath Streak, Neil Johnson, Murray Goodwins and Henry Olonga. Like the country for the past two decades, the state of Zimbabwean cricket has also fallen into disrepair and this has affected the team’s performance. The Indian team’s tour of Zimbabwe has generally been seen as India’s attempt to improve the host board’s financial situation. The television and digital rights for these three matches will serve Zimbabwe Cricket a lot. On the cricket side, selectors will get a chance to test the strength of the bench that can play the 50-over World Cup in 2023.
