IND vs ZIM Pitch Report

The surface at Harare Sports Club traditionally favours batters and spinners. In the second T20I, the wicket wasn't watered before the game. So, it behaved like a belter where the batters enjoyed stellar success in the first innings. However, as the game progressed, the pitch brought the spinners into play, while the pacers relied on cutters and variations to succeed. 

Fantasy value from the pitch report

  • Pick top-order batters as they will use the best version of the pitch to score runs. 
  • With Harare's dry track holding up a bit, spinners and death bowlers will be valuable assets in fantasy contests. 

IND vs ZIM Fantasy Cricket Tips

  • Abhishek Sharma is in scintillating form, having smashed a blistering hundred in the second match. Considering it's a spin-friendly pitch and India will likely play an extra batter, Sharma is a must-pick as he will also roll his arms for a few overs. 
  • Wessly Madhevere and Sikandar Raza should be the two must-picks from Zimbabwe. While Madhevere has been the most successful Zimbabwe batter, Raza's all-round attributes makes him an automatic choice. 
  • Regarding the bowlers, Ravi Bishnoi will be a hot pick for this match. Mukesh Kumar could be a valuable choice from the bowlers' category alongside Avesh Khan, who was effective with his hard-length bowling in the second match. 

IND vs ZIM Winner Prediction

Although Zimbabwe emerged victorious in the first match, India bounced back remarkably, defeating the hosts by 100 runs in the subsequent affair. So, considering the strength of both teams, we reckon India will extend their winning streak and go two-one up in the series. 

IND vs ZIM Top Player Picks

Abhishek Sharma (IND)

The explosive southpaw played a pivotal role in India's stellar outing in the second T20I. He hammered a sensational 46-ball ton and is expected to dominate the hosts in this match.

Ravi Bishnoi (IND)

The wily leg spinner has bamboozled the Zimbabwean batters with his guile in this series. Bishnoi, who has varied his length and pace wisely, could once again be a headache for the Chevrons. 

Mukesh Kumar (IND)

The ace speedster generated appreciable seam movement, showing exemplary control over the white kookaburra in the second T20I. He has scalped four wickets in the series and will be one of the players to watch out for. 

Sikandar Raza (ZIM)

Despite failing with the bat, Zimbabwe captain Sikandar Raza has been effective with the ball, earning the most points from the hosts side. Considering his all-round attributes, Raza is a must-pick for this game. 

IND vs ZIM Differential Picks

Shubman Gill (IND)

The stand-in Indian captain has definitely recorded two consecutive failures. But considering his hunger to perform and ability to bounce back, Gill could be a game-changing risky C/VC option for this match. 

Brian Bennet (ZIM)

The talented number three batter got brisk starts, which he failed to convert into big scores in the first two matches. Considering the touch he is in, a fifty could be just around the corner for Bennet, who can also be useful with his off spin.  

IND vs ZIM Fantasy Expert Advice

Given the wicket and the strength of the two teams, a 1-3-3-4 combination will be favourable for the match.
