In the first T20I of the series against Zimbabwe, three debutants - Abhishek Sharma, Riyan Parag and Dhruv Jurel got their T20I debut caps ahead of the five-match series opener. Indian Team in the first T20I failed to perform and faced crashing defeat by 13 runs. 

In the second game, the 'Men in Blue' made a strong comeback and defeated Zimbabwe by a massive margin of 100 runs. Young opener Abhishek Sharma stole the show with his quick century, while Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rinku Singh constructed the innings well for India. 

Team India would like to continue with the same winning momentum. The likely changes that we can expect are that Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube are expected to replace Dhruv Jurel and Sai Sudharsan respectively, and Yashasvi Jaiswal might still have to wait to make a place in the playing XI.

The Zimbabwe cricket team stunned the World Champions when they defeated India in the first T20I to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. But India bounced back in the second T20I and won the match by 100 runs.

Zimbabwe have a lot of room for improvement and the players need to step up and play according to the demands of the game. 

The entire team has a high dependence on skipper Sikandar Raza and that needs to change. The bowling unit looked quite stable and scalped wickets at regular intervals.

IND vs ZIM 3rd T20I: Harare Sports Club Pitch Report

The pitch of the Harare Sports Club in the afternoon match generally favours the batters, and the same was seen in the second T20I - where the pitch supported the batsman and scoring runs became easy. So the same can be expected in the third T20I, it can likely support the batters and strokeplay can become easy at this pitch. 

Also, the spinners will get a hint of turn, while the fast bowlers will likely hit the indentations and hard length to succeed. And the captain that will win the toss can likely opt to bat first.
