ZIM vs IND, 3rd ODI Pitch Report:
In the white-ball game, the surface at Harare Sports Club is ideal for both batsmen and bowlers. Indian pacers excelled in the game and held the home team to fewer than 200 runs. If India bowls first on Monday, they are expected to dominate with a pace assault because spinners are also taking wickets in the middle overs.

Top Picks for ZIM vs IND Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
In the last game following the conclusion of the Indian Premier League 2022, KL Rahul, the Indian captain, finally had a chance to bat. The star batsman, however, was dismissed for just one run after facing five deliveries. In order to improve his match fitness before the forthcoming 2022 Asia Cup, he is likely to start an inning in the final game as well. He has 1635 runs scored in 44 ODI games for an average of 45.41 and would make a great skipper for this game.
The veteran middle-order batter Sean Williams broke his recent slump by scoring the most runs (42), off 42 balls, in the most recent game. His contribution to Zimbabwe’s World Cup qualifying matches was essential, but he lacked consistency against Bangladesh and in the first game against India. He has so far amassed 4192 runs at an average of 34.93 in 144 ODI games.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
The best player for the hosts is still Sikandar Raza, a seasoned Zimbabwean all-rounder who was unable to have the same impact he had in the Bangladesh series. In the first two games, he scored 12 and 16 runs while only taking one wicket. He beats out Sean Williams and Deepak Hooda, though, as options for this fixture.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Despite having taken the most wickets in India’s previous ODI series against the West Indies—seven—Shardul Thakur, the bowling all-rounder who is now in fine form, was unexpectedly left out of the first game. In the second game, he demonstrated his value by getting three wickets and only giving up 38 runs in seven overs.
Despite collecting three wickets and being named player of the match in the first game, left-arm bowler Deepak Chahar was benched for the second game. He has already claimed nine wickets in his past four ODI games and would make a strong captain pick on Monday if India elects to open the batting.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
With the help of three fours and four sixes, the in-form batter Sanju Samson won the second match and the Player of the Match title with a knock of 43 runs off just 39 balls. Despite not having a chance to bat in the first game, he is still a clear choice for wicketkeeper above players like Ishan Kishan and Regis Chakabva.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for ZIM vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Sanju Samson, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill (c), Ryan Burl, Rahul Tripathi, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Deepak Hooda, Deepak Chahar (vc), Luke Jongwe, Shardul Thakur.
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for ZIM vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Regis Chakabva, Sanju Samson, KL Rahul (c), Shubman Gill, Ryan Burl, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sikandar Raza (vc), Sean Williams, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Tanaka Chivanga.
ZIM vs IND Risky Captaincy Choices:
Regis Chakabva, the captain of Zimbabwe, scored a century against Bangladesh in the most recent ODI and had a solid 35-run outing against India in the first game. In the previous game, he moved up to the number four spot, however he dismissed for just two runs.
Rahul Tripathi finally scheduled to make his long-awaited debut now that India has won the series. He is currently in good form in domestic cricket and is most likely to play in the number three or four slots in the final game. However, his inexperience on a global scale makes him a dangerous captaincy pick.
Player you should avoid:
The right-arm pacer Avesh Khan benched for the first two games because of his inconsistent play at the international level. Due to his participation in the forthcoming 2022 Asia Cup, he is most likely to play the last game to maintain his sharpness. He has only appeared in one ODI match so far, losing that game by a score of 54 runs in just six overs while failing to pick up any wickets.
