IND vs ZIM: Three Changes India can make to their playing XI for Third T20I

IND vs ZIM: After losing the first T20I against Zimbabwe by 13 runs, India made a stunning comeback and thrashed Zimbabwe by a massive margin of 100 runs. This is the biggest win by a visiting team in Zimbabwe. The young India posted the highest T20I total against Zimbabwe at 234/2. Everything went in favour of India, and they were very clinical in their performance.

Now the third game is scheduled to take place on July 10 (Wednesday) at Harare Sports Club. India should stick with their winning combination, but Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, and Shivam Dube have joined the team for the last three matches. Sai Sudharsan, Harshit Rana, and Jitesh Sharma will fly back to India. So we will talk here about three changes that India could make to their playing XI for the third IND vs ZIM game.

IND vs ZIM: Three Changes India can make to their playing XI for Third T20I

1. Jaiswal in for Sai Sudharsan

Sai Sudharsan made his T20I debut for India in the second IND vs ZIM game on Sunday. But he didn’t get a chance to make any contributions with the bat. Unfortunately for the youngster, he needs to make way for other players because he was selected only for the first two matches. But the question is where Jaiswal will bat. However, India should go with Jaiswal and Abhishek Sharma at the top, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill can bat at no. 3 or 4.

2. Shivam Dube in for Riyan Parag

India don’t have a seam-bowling all-rounder in this squad. So there is a good opportunity for Shivam Dube to grab his moment and show his all-round ability. He might make his place for Riyan Parag. Dube was part of the Indian team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 and played well in the final. Riyan failed in the first game and didn’t get a chance in the second. So India can go with Dube and win the third IND vs ZIM game and give Riyan in one of the last few games.

3. Sanju Samson in for Dhurv Jurel

Dhurv Jurel hasn’t done badly as a keeper. But Sanju Samson is back, and he might be the first-choice keeper for India. Hence, Jurel might make the way for him. Samson was benched for the whole T20 World Cup 2024, but he is expected to get games here. That is what we can expect in the third IND vs ZIM game on Wednesday. If India win the next two, then they can rest a few players and rotate properly.
