IND vs ZIM 3rd ODI: On Monday at the Harare Sports Club, the series’ final game will pit Team India and Team Zimbabwe against one another for the last time.

By defeating the Zimbabwean squad in the first two ODIs, the men in blue clearly outclassed them, and they will want to maintain the momentum by triumphing in the series’ final match and go for a whitewash,

Thanks to some impressive performances from the batters, Zimbabwe also won their recent home ODI series against Bangladesh. But in this series, they haven’t really been able to show their class and act bravely. Their performance with the bat has been extremely mediocre and it will be something they would like to change in the final match.

How The Pitch Will Play?

The Harare Sports Club’s playing surface is decent where both bowlers and batters should benefit equally. The pitch early on plays a little damp and doesn’t help batters much so the captain of the side that wins the toss-in would prefer to bowl first.

What To Expect in The Middle?

Shikhar Dhawan and Shubhman Gill are the partners in form we can expect to put 55-60 runs on board during the powerplay overs. While Zimbabwe might post 40-45 runs on board.

Team India still has a lot of young players who demonstrated their mettle with their impressive performances, even without their typical destructive batters like Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja in the squad. Given their recent performances, it is possible to forecast that they will assist their team in scoring 70–75 runs in the final 10 overs. In the final overs, Zimbabwe may score between 55 and 60 runs.

India will be able to score between 310 and 320 runs, while Zimbabwe might get as high as 230 or 240 runs.

IND vs ZIM Probable Playing XI:

India XI

KL Rahul (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson (wk), Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj

Zimbabwe XI

Tadiwamashe Marumani, Takudzwanashe Kaitano, Innocent Kaia, Wessly Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabva (c & wk), Tony Munyonga, Luke Jongwe, Brad Evans, Victor Nyauchi, Richard Ngarava

IND vs ZIM: Who Will Win?

The first two games featured some excellent cricket from the men in blue, who utterly outlasted the home team by keeping them under 200 runs and then easily chasing down the objectives, particularly in the opening ODI, which they won by a margin of 10 wickets.

While Zimbabwe will attempt to make the most of the last ODI to rebuild the confidence they lost in the previous two ODIs, where they failed to even pass the 200-run threshold. However, India will have the advantage over Zimbabwe in the series finale, regardless of who wins.
