World Champions India Will Play A Five-Match Series Against ZIM T20 2024; Where To Watch, Full Schedule

This five-match T20 cricket series, which begins on Saturday at the Harare Sports Club, will pit world champions India against hosts Zimbabwe. After 2016, the Indian cricket team will visit the African country for the first bilateral series.

The scheduling for all five of the Twenty20 India against Zimbabwe matches is set to start at 4:30 PM IST at the same location. In India, transmission and live streaming will be accessible.

The West Indies and the United States co-hosted the T20 Cricket World Cup 2024, which concluded with the Indian men’s cricket team emerging as the global champions.

Zimbabwe enters the series having lost the five-match T20 series against Bangladesh 4-1 in May. They failed to earn a spot in the T20 World Cup.

Following the announcement of veteran players Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja’s retirement from the Twenty20 format, a significantly altered Indian squad will play in Harare.

Notable absences from the IND vs. ZIM T20 series include Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, and Hardik Pandya, the world’s top T20 all-rounder.

The Indian men’s cricket team, which also includes Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, and Ravi Bishnoi, will be captained by ace batsman Shubman Gill against Zimbabwe.

In the meanwhile, Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, Tushar Deshpande, and IPL 2024’s top six hitter Abhishek Sharma may make their T20 debuts.

The first two games would be missed by Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, and Yashasvi Jaiswal, who were members of the Indian cricket squad that won the T20 World Cup. B For the first two games, Jitesh Sharma, Harshit Rana, and Sai Sudharsan have been brought into India’s 15-man team.

The seam bowling all-rounder Nitish Kumar Reddy was initially called up for the first time for India, but he later sustained an injury that kept him out of the lineup for this series.

India is winning the men’s T20 international series against Zimbabwe. Six of the eight head-to-head matches have been won by the two-time T20 global champions. Zimbabwe triumphed over India twice, in 2015 and 2016. Zimbabwe won both of their matches in Harare.

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Group B in 2022 marked the pair’s most recent meeting. India prevailed by 71 runs thanks to an unbeaten 25-ball 61 from Suryakumar Yadav.
