Zimbabwe vs India 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Tips 2024

ZIM vs IND 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

With the five-match series level at 1-1, Zimbabwe and India go head to head for the third time on Wednesday in Harare. Zimbabwe won the opening game on Saturday but were then thrashed by India by 100 runs in Sunday’s second T20I. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at the Harare Sports Club at 13:00 local time on July 10th.

Zimbabwe got off to a surprise start in the series with a narrow victory but few were shocked to see them thrashed by India in Sunday’s second T20I. However, there have been some positive individual performances and we expect to see an attacking approach from the hosts once again in this fixture.

After Saturday’s disappointing result, India were back to their best in Sunday’s game with both bat and ball. They have a very confident batting line-up and we predict that they will be very positive against this Zimbabwe bowling attack in this T20I.

ZIM vs IND Pitch Report

In spite of the bowlers being on top on Saturday and the batters struggling, we saw India prove how much of a good batting surface this is at the Harare Sports Stadium in Sunday’s game. Whoever bats first in this T20I will be looking to post a score of 180+.

Harare Weather Report

The conditions are set to be very similar to what we saw in the first two games which means sunshine throughout and the temperature in the mid-twenties from start to finish.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

After their winning start to the series, Zimbabwe opted to select the same XI for Sunday’s game which ended in a heavy defeat. Dion Myers had a game to forget with his only over costing 28 runs before getting a golden duck with the bat but he made 23 in the opening match so should retain his place.

ZIM Key Players

  • Brian Bennett – The young all-rounder is an excellent attacking player and he will bat at number three in this game. He has hit the most boundaries or the joint-most for Zimbabwe in each of his last three T20Is.
  • Wessly Madhevere – The opener has been in good form and top scored for the hosts on Sunday. He is their leading run scorer across the series so far.
  • Sikandar Raza – The experienced all-rounder has impressed with his captaincy and took three wickets in Zimbabwe’s victory on Saturday.
  • Blessing Muzarabani – The right-arm fast medium bowler has dismissed Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill and is yet to go wicketless in the series.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe were looking for their third successive T20I victory on Sunday but were well beaten.

IND Team News

There was one change for India ahead of the second T20I with Sai Sudharsan coming in for Khaleel Ahmed. Although they now have Shivam Dube, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson available, all three may struggle to get in the side after India posted 234/2 in Sunday’s match.

IND Key Players

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad – The right-handed top order batter captained Chennai Super Kings in the 2024 Indian Premier League and hit 11 fours along with one six in Sunday’s T20I.
  • Rinku Singh – The middle-order batter came in at number four in the last game to hit 48 not out from 22 balls. He has the joint highest strike-rate in the series across both sides.
  • Ravi Bishnoi – No bowler on either side has come close to matching the spinner’s accuracy and figures in the series so far. He returned his best ever economy rate in the last game.
  • Mukesh Kumar – The opening pace bowler dismissed both of Zimbabwe’s openers in Sunday’s T20I and he has now got the wicket of Innocent Kaia in both matches in the series.

Who will win Zimbabwe vs India 3rd T20 Match?

Zimbabwe have shown that they have some excellent players to build a side around for future years but right now India’s squad is better in every position. We have India as the top side for this game.

🏆 Zimbabwe vs India Prediction

India produced a brilliant response to their defeat in the opening game by out-playing Zimbabwe in all departments on Sunday. Brian Bennett has impressed with his attacking intent across the series but he will need two or three other batters to produce something special in this match to give Zimbabwe a chance. India look back to their best and we expect them to win Wednesday’s match.
