India’s tour to Zimbabwe is all set to start on August 18. This tour will be an opportunity for the youngsters to showcase their skills. India have always sent a relatively younger side to Zimbabwe, owing to the kind of depth and the pool of talent possessed by the Asian nation
Thus, the series consists of three ODIs, and all the games will be played in one venue and that is the Harare sports club in Harare. This will be yet another tour to the African nation and it will give an opportunity for the Men in Blue to experiment and look for new players who can perform various roles in the side. This will also give a much-needed break to the experienced players who have been playing non-stop cricket.
