Who Will Win Today’s India vs Zimbabwe 3rd T20 2024?

After a dominant 100-run victory in the second T20I, India heads to Harare Sports Club for the third match, with a series win firmly in their sights. However, Zimbabwe, buoyed by their surprise win in the first encounter, will be looking to spoil the party again.

India: Youthful Vibrancy with Experience

Despite the World Cup win, India’s youthful squad faced teething troubles in the first game. However, the second match saw a resurgence, with Abhishek Sharma’s blazing century stealing the show. The bowling, spearheaded by Ravi Bishnoi’s skillful spin, looked sharp. Washington Sundar’s all-round contributions are a welcome addition.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Innocent Kaia, Wessly Madhevere, Brian Bennett, Dion Myers, Sikandar Raza (c), Johnathan Campbell, Clive Madande, Wellington Masakadza, Luke Jongwe, Blessing Muzarabani, Tendai Chatara

Zimbabwe: Gritty Determination Under Fire

While their batting hasn’t quite clicked, Zimbabwe’s pace attack, led by Tendai Chatara and Blessing Muzarabani, has impressed. Wessly Madhevere has shown glimpses of brilliance with the bat, but the middle order needs to step up.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill (c), Abhishek Sharma, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rinku Singh, Riyan Parag, Sai Sudharsan, Dhruv Jurel, Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar

Pitch and Weather:

  • Clear skies and dry conditions are forecast, with temperatures hovering around 26°C.
  • The Harare Sports Club pitch offers a challenge for batters early on, favoring swing and seam bowling.
  • Average first innings score: 153 runs.
  • Teams batting first have a slight advantage (31 wins vs 20 chasing).

Toss and Captain’s Call:

Winning the toss will be crucial. Traditionally, teams batting first have fared better here. However, with the pitch settling later, chasing could be an option.

Match Prediction:

India, with their potent batting line-up and variety in bowling, is the clear favorite. However, Zimbabwe’s fighting spirit and home advantage shouldn’t be underestimated.

Winner: India Will Win

Will India seal the series win? Or can Zimbabwe pull off another upset? The stage is set for a thrilling encounter!
