Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI Prediction, playing XI, Match Venue All Details



Know all about Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI series starting from today, as the playing XI, match Venue, Pitch Report, and many more in today’s article. But before going into many details, let us remind you that the Zimbabwe team has defeated the Bangladesh team in the 3-match T20I series and now is all set to face a tougher team i.e., Team India. From the Zimbabwean side, it would be Regis Chakvbva leading the squad, whereas, from Team India, it would be KL Rahul, leading. Firstly, it was Shikhar Dhawan going to lead but, in a surprise, move by the selectors in India, Dhawan was replaced by KL Rahul as he just recovered from COVID-19. Abruptly, replacing Dhawan from the series was not taken well by the Indian fans as well as former cricketers like Mohammed Kaif, who said,


“It is not nice for Shikhar, as a player, he is very chilled out, he will not care but it is not right for Shikhar Dhawan,”


Well, what is done, is done, but now all eyes will be upon KL Rahul, as it will be his first comeback after the IPL. Let’s find out the other details about the Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI, such as its playing XI, match Venue, Pitch Report and so on.

Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI – Pitch Report


The pitch is going to be a bit bouncy and good for pacers and for the first few hours probably the batters need to play cautiously as it might result in losing the wicket. Before the Mega event (T20 World Cup) the pitch can work as homework for both teams. To remind you, pitches in Australia are almost the same where the WC is held.


Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI – Weather Report

Match Prediction


Although, Zimbabwe looks a bit stronger after its clash against the Bangladeshi but it does mean, team India has to be looked upon as the same. If you look at the journey of the Indian team so far, (After IPL) except for the fifth test against England, none of the series whether it be the proteas, the Caribbeans, or the Irish, none of them has been spared by the Indian side and won all the series. So definitely as per stats, Indian team looks to have an edge, but it will be interesting to see whether KL Rahul will continue with the winning streak or not.


Final Prediction

India is more likely to win the Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI.
