ZIM vs IND:  Team India, led by Shubman Gill, aims to maintain their winning momentum as they face Zimbabwe in the third T20I of the five-match series at Harare Sports Club today. With the series tied at 1-1—Zimbabwe winning the first match and India taking the second—there’s added anticipation for this clash.

However, challenges loom for captain Shubman Gill and coach VVS Laxman as members of the T20 World Cup-winning squad join the team. The inclusion of Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Shivam Dube strengthens this young Indian side but could mean the end of the series for some current players.

Wicketkeeper-batter Dhruv Jurel is likely to make way for Sanju Samson, while Shivam Dube may replace Riyan Parag. The key question is how to fit Yashasvi Jaiswal, typically a top-order batsman, into the lineup. Despite Abhishek Sharma’s recent maiden international century, the team might have to drop Sai Sudharsan to accommodate Jaiswal, potentially moving Abhishek to the one-down position. However if the team decides to give youngsters another go then it is only Shivam Dube who could be seen sitting outside of the XI.

Zimbabwe, led by Sikandar Raza, needs to bounce back from a 100-run defeat in the last match. The team has struggled with their batting, posting scores of 115 and 134 in the two matches so far. They must refine their strategy to counter the new and experienced additions to the Indian lineup and aim to deliver their best performance in the upcoming matches of the series.
