IND vs ZIM 3rd T20I: Pitch Report by Tino Mawoyo

"Pitch number 5 is being used for this game. It is very dry. There is grass but it is well rolled in. Not too much moisture has gone in, it looks like a good batting surface.

As the game goes on, it slows down and batting becomes a little tough. Get to 160-170 and put pressure on the chasing side."

IND vs ZIM 3rd T20I: Captain's Thoughts

Shubman Gill (India Captain): "We will bat first. Looks like a good wicket, no moisture so that's why. We have got three World Cup winners back in the team. Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube. We are rotating our fast bowlers so Mukesh Kumar has been rested. Khaleel Ahmed is in."

Sikandar Raza (Zimbabwe Captain): We were going to bowl first anyway.A couple of changes for us. Richard Ngarava has been deemed fit and is back in the XI for Luke Jongwe. Innocent Kaia, who split his webbing in the previous game, is out of the XI. Marumani is also on the side."
