Zimbabwe and India will take on each other in the second ODI of the three-match series at the Harare Sports Club in Harare. The hosts were bundled out for 189 in the first ODI, and there was not a lot they could have done against the quality Indian bowling attack. A better batting performance is expected in the upcoming game from the Regis Chakabva-led side with the series on the line.

On the other hand, the visitors came up with a clinical performance in both the batting and bowling departments. A 10-wicket victory summed up the game and it was pure dominance from the KL Rahul-led side. The middle order is yet to be tested and the skipper will look for a different approach in the second ODI to test themselves.

ZIM vs IND Pitch Report

The Harare pitch looked a belter to bat on once the innings progressed in the first ODI, and it will be important to not lose wickets in the powerplay when the ball does swing a bit. The skipper winning the toss will be looking to bowl first and take advantage of the conditions.

ZIM vs IND Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match:

Shubman Gill:

Shubman Gill continued from where he left off against West Indies and played a match-winning knock at the top of the order. The right-hander remained unbeaten on 82 off 72 balls with 10 fours and a six at a strike rate of 113.89. He will be looking to make an impact in the upcoming game against Zimbabwe.

Probable best bowler of the match:

Deepak Chahar:

Deepak Chahar returned to action with a spendid bowling spell and the seamer looked unplayable for the Zimbabwe’s batters. He finished with 3 for 27 in his seven overs and swung the ball both ways asking a lot of questions about the technique. He earned the Player of the Match award for his match-winning spell and showed his pure class.
