ZIM vs IND Highlights 7-10-2024

Watch cricket video highlights of India tour of Zimbabwe 2024 3rd Twenty/20 between Zimbabwe vs India. Venue of the match will be Harare.

Pitch and Weather: In his pre-match news conference on the eve of the game, India batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad provided a concise summary of the circumstances at Harare Sports Club. The weather for Wednesday is looking bright and sunny, with highs in the mid-20s Celsius. Indeed, the circumstances are difficult,” he stated. It’s a little different. If the seam movement is occurring at a single speed, it is still manageable. However, I think there is a little bit of a bounce here and a little bit of double-pacing. As a result, there is a small variation. It is a little harder to score runs while the ball is brand-new, but you can still convert your runs after that because of the rapid borders and relatively short boundaries.

The selection of India is complicated by the returns of Jaiswal, Samson, and Dube. Will Jaiswal open or bat in the middle order? B Sai Sudharsan, who made his debut in the second T20I but did not get to face a ball, is scheduled to replace him. Who will Dube replace, and how? Samson’s situation is easier to understand; he will probably take Dhruv Jurel’s spot on the Rajasthan Royals. India may end up batting with at least two top-order players below their ideal spots, regardless of the lineup they choose. In response to Sunday’s loss, Zimbabwe skipper Raza is reluctant to make drastic changes, although he did declare during the match that left-arm seamer Richard Ngarava would replace him if he passed a fitness test. “If he’s fit to go, he’s straight back in.”

Due to his involvement in the festivities back home, he was unable to participate in any matches during India’s World Cup campaign and was also absent from the first two games of this series. It’s Sanju Samson’s turn at last. In the nearly nine years since his debut, he has only played 25 Twenty20 international matches. However, he may now be locked in for three straight games, so maybe he can take advantage of the chance. This series has seen Brian Bennett hit a nine-ball 26 and a 15-ball 22 in the first two innings. With his accurate hitting at No. 3 and his offspin, he has proven that he is one of Zimbabwe’s potential game-changers. If he is able to spend a significant amount of time at the crease throughout this series, he might potentially win them a game or two.

India regained their confidence the following day, demonstrating their immense potential with the bat and ball, following a rust-ridden loss in a low-scoring opening Twenty20 international. Although Zimbabwe has obvious flaws, they are still a formidable opponent, and their challenge of turning a 1-1 series deficit into a series victory has just grown more difficult. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, and Shivam Dube—three players who were a part of India’s winning T20 World Cup campaign—will bolster the country.

Zimbabwe’s strategy for the remaining games in this series will need to be calculated. The fact that they excluded seasoned veterans like Sean Williams and Craig Ervine for this series means that while they will need to continue honing the fundamentals, they also need to be realistic about their goals and acknowledge that it will take time for their young players to establish themselves. Dropped catches may have contributed to their defeat in the second Twenty20 International.

After the second Twenty20 International, Zimbabwe captain Sikandar Raza stated, “A lot of mistakes our youngsters have made have been due to lack of [experience] and not so much to do with their skills, so that’s a positive as well.” They will pick up knowledge as they play and continue to acclimate to international cricket. Everyone has experienced that.
