India will play a three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe starting on August 18. They have rested most of the first-choice players so that they can remain fresh for the upcoming Asia Cup. On the other hand, the hosts will be entering with a full-strength side although their cricketing experience is far lesser than the Men In Blue. Also, not to forget that they don’t play against bigger oppositions to improve their skills.

Meanwhile, here, we will discuss the probable playing XI of the visitors. As the first-choice players aren’t available, the new players will have the chance to showcase their skills. Some players are making a comeback after a long injury layoff which is why they would be eager to do well. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at the probable playing XI of the team.

Probable playing XI

  1. Opening batters

Stand-in skipper KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan will be opening the innings. In the presence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma, Rahul plays in the middle order. However, in the former’s absence, the Bangalore player will open the innings.

On the other hand, Dhawan is an extremely experienced player in the ODI format. Talking about his record in the Southern African nation, he played four games and has 209 runs at an average of 52.25 to his name.
