Shikhar Dhawan, who recently led India to a 3-0 win in the ODI series against West Indies in West Indies, again has chosen to lead the side, but this time a more younger Indian team will be part of the tour.

The players who competed in the ODI series against the West Indies, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Arshdeep Singh, were not selected for the team that will travel to Zimbabwe. Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, and team India’s regular captain Rohit Sharma are all as expected will not be a part of this tour. Even in that case, Shikhar Dhawan’s starting lineup appears to be a good one.

Shubman Gill, who won his maiden player of the series award in the recently concluded ODI series against West Indies, retained his place in the side.

The speedster Deepak Chahar, who was injured and out for a considerable amount of time, has re-joined the team. Washington Sundar has returned from an injury, while Rahul Tripathi has also received his first ODI call-up.
