While this could have been a good opportunity for Yuvraj Singh to make a comeback to the Indian line-up but unfortunately, the left-hander misses out. Krunal Pandya, in particular, will be disappointed on not making his debut as he was one of the most promising talents in IPL 2016, scoring 237 runs in 12 innings and also picking up 6 wickets as well. The two teams have faced each other on 60 occasions with the Indians winning 48 of them.
The Zimbabweans have managed to register 10 victories, giving them some hope to beat this inexperienced unit.
The last bilateral series involving these 2 teams was back in July last year.
The Indians expectedly won the series 3-0 but the Zimbabweans sure gave them a run for their money as the Indians had a narrow escape in the first game, winning by 4 runs.
Indian cricket fans have not had to wait for much long as the ‘Men in Blue’ will be heading to the African continent to face off against the Zimbabweans.The tour will include 3 ODIs and 3 T20 games spanning over two weeks.
