Harare Sports Club [X]Harare Sports Club [X]

After incurring a 13-run defeat in the first T20I, India will take on Zimbabwe in the second match of the ongoing five-game series today at 4.30 PM IST. 

Led by Shubman Gill, the Men in Blue put up a dismal show as the hosts secured a fighting win to go one-nil up in the series. 

Batting first, Zimbabwe posted a modest 115-run total and defended it successfully to beat India for the first time after 2016. 

Therefore, the young Indian side will be desperate to bounce back and restore parity when they enter the field on Sunday. 

So, as the stage gets set for another thriller, let's see how the surface at Harare Sports Club will behave throughout the contest. 

Harare Sports Club Pitch Report For IND vs ZIM 2nd T20I

The pitch at Harare Sports Club generally offers good batting conditions in afternoon matches. However, in the first T20I between India and Zimbabwe, the track was a bit sticky as the ball held up after pitching

The Zimbabwe bowlers varied their pace wisely to wreak havoc in the Indian camp. Also, there was significant turn on offer for the spinners who capitalised on it throughout the game. 

So, expect similar tricky batting conditions for the Sunday game, where the ball might nip around because of the indentations and hold up after pitching. The spinners will also be in the game, particularly in the middle overs. 

So, the batters must respect the conditions and play each ball on its merit rather than trying to hit through the line.
