Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, and Shivam Dube have joined India's squad in Zimbabwe for the five-match T20I series.  The trio, which was in India's T20 World Cup-winning squad, was not a part of the first two games and was set to join after the second encounter. India registered a 100-run victory in the second T20I after a loss in the first. 

In a 54-second video released by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the spotlight was on the triad of participants, showcasing their captivating batting skills from various visually appealing angles in the nets. The footage also featured Dube bowling, with a primary focus on these three players undergoing training during a daytime net session. Additionally, interim head coach, VVS Laxman, was observed engaging in conversation with Samson.

The team management faces a significant selection quandary, considering Abhishek Sharma's outstanding century as an opener in the absence of Yashasvi Jaiswal during the second T20I against Zimbabwe.

With Jaiswal now back in contention, it becomes a headache for the team management's to decide the team composition. Ruturaj Gaikwad, initially an opening batter, has already been reassigned to the No. 3 position, while Gill and Abhishek formed the opening pair for India in the first two matches.
