Preview –

India was driven to the brink of losing before they managed to snatch of a win against Zimbabwe. After the disappointing Bangladesh series where they lost the series, they visited Zimbabwe with some of their top players on break. The team is relatively young and was more of a test for new players. However, they were they managed to win the first match although it was by a hair. Their players looked simply bad on the field and their batsmen were terrible. They need to improve themselves if they want easier win from now on. They will play this match as the favorites.

The home team for this match is Zimbabwe. Recently they are playing extremely well. In the Pakistan series they came close to winning almost on all the matches. The same happened in the first match against India but this time they came as close as possible. It’s only a matter of time before they start winning and they might choose India as the opponent. So, while they might be the underdogs, they will play to win this match and if they play their best then they will be able to win the match.

Prediction –

We predict that India will win this match but the match will get very close.
