Zimbabwe v India T20I series: 5 players to watch out for

With the Zimbabwe v India ODI series done and dusted, the focus now shifts to the 3-T20I series between the two teams. Having been thrashed out of sight in the recently concluded ODI series 3-0, the hosts will be hoping to give a better account of themselves in the shortest format. With three T20 internationals to be played in a short span of time, there will certainly be a few players who will most definitely have their say in the proceedings. That said, here are the 5 players to watch out for in the upcoming T20 internationals.

Arguably the best batsman in the series, KL Rahul smashed one fifty and a century in the three matches he played. Having made his Test debut at Perth in 2014, Rahul finally made his debut in the ODI circuit against Zimbabwe at Harare in the first ODI. He smashed a massive 196 runs in the three-match series. He also remained unbeaten on 100 in the first ODI, a performance that saw him win the man-of-the-series award. Having impressed in the recently concluded IPL with the bat, all eyes will be on the 24-year old as he sets off on his T20 career as well.
