IND Vs ZIM T20 Series Preview | Best Team in 2024


India will take to the field in Zimbabwe for a five-match T20 series led by Shubman Gill. Youngsters such as Riyan Parag and Washington Sundar will hope to impress.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube could find hope in this series if they didn’t make the World Cup squad.

IND Vs ZIM India Squad

India have named a 15-member squad for their white-ball tour of Zimbabwe, led by Shubman Gill with Riyan Parag and Abhishek Sharma receiving their inaugural call-ups, alongside hard-hitting batters Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal as hard-hitters, Ravindra Jadeja being the sole spinner while Yuzvendra Chahal also making an appearance.

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah have been rested ahead of an intense season and given time off from playing cricket by the Indian selection committee. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Tilak Varma Rahul Tripathi and Shubman Gill can put forward their claims for inclusion into the touring party by making themselves heard during training camps or training matches.

India are expected to win both series 5-0 with Rishabh Pant leading from wicketkeeper-batsman as captain and five T20Is at Harare starting July 6. His unorthodox style of playing has impressed selectors while scoring over 550 runs in IPL 2024 and becoming India’s top run scorer; beating Ishan Kishan and K L Rahul into selection; Leg-spinner Chahal will provide wrist spin, while Axar Patel from Chennai Super Kings who has excelled with the ball also joins Chahal and Axar Patel has played in IPL 2024 to become India captain and captain-batsman; all five T20Is will be hosted at Harare – and India should win all five matches 5-0;


IND Vs ZIM Zimbabwe Squad

Zimbabwe has assembled an outstanding balance between youth and experience in its squad, led by 38-year old captain Sikandar Raza and all-rounders Faraz Akram, Brian Bennett, Johnathan Campbell, Tendai Chatara, Wessly Madhevere, Wellington Masakadza, Milton Shumba and Richard Ngarava – experienced lower order hitters who can also play key roles as strike bowler Tinashe Kamunhukamwe strikes against spin bowling while Clive Madande keeps wicket and fast bowlers Blessing Muzarabani Wessly Munyonga and Brandon Mavuta create a formidable attack.

Shubman Gill leads an Indian squad featuring both newcomers and established stars. Riyan Parag and Abhishek Sharma earned their debut call-ups following impressive IPL performances, while young Nitish Reddy and Dhruv Jurel have been named as backup players ahead of a five T20 International series against Zimbabwe that starts later this month.

Shubman Gill has chosen a much younger squad compared to that which won the ICC T20 World Cup, due in large part to several senior players being rested for their series against Zimbabwe, and some expected back for use during South Africa tour.

After their T20 World Cup triumph, Team India will look to get off quickly in their next series against Zimbabwe. Shubman Gill will lead this Men in Blue team as it represents his inaugural opportunity at leading this format of cricket.

Shubman will assemble an experienced yet youthful squad. Riyan Parag and Abhishek Sharma are expected to attempt to cement their places in the national team following strong performances in the Indian Premier League; these two could fill some of Rohit and Kohli’s shoes who have both retired from T20Is.



The match will be broadcast live in India via Star Sports and Hotstar; Star Sports 1 HD/SD will feature English commentary while Star Sports 3 HD/SD offers Hindi commentary. Disney Plus users may also stream it.

Zimbabwe will look to rebound after failing to qualify for the T20 World Cup by fielding a youthful squad in their five-match series against England. Skipper Sikandar Raza will lead from the front, having played 86 T20Is for his country; fast bowler Richard Ngarava and spinner Blessing Muzarabani will support him alongside veteran batsmen Sean Williams and Craig Ervine having been dropped from their respective squads.
