Shubman Gill is leading India in the IND vs ZIM T20I series and will take on the role of captain and opener in the upcoming match as well. He failed to put in a good performance in the last match but scored a crucial 31 in the first match in a losing cause.

Abhishek Sharma

Abhishek Sharma will undoubtedly be India’s second opener in the upcoming match after his flawless century in the last match. The left-handed batsman smashed 100 off 47 balls with 7 fours and a six.

Ruturaj Gaikwad

Sai Sudharsan

Sai Sudharsan will also bat in the middle order in the third T20I against Zimbabwe. The left-handed batsman was benched in the first T20I and did not get a chance in the previous game. Therefore, he deserves another chance as he will only be part of the team for three games.

Riyan Parag

Riyan Parag will bat in the lower order and will be a hard-hitting batsman for the team. He got out cheaply by single digits in the opening T20I clash and did not get a chance to bat in the last game. Hence, he will aim for an impressive performance this time.

Rinku Singh

Rinku Singh showed what he is known for doing in the last match. The left-handed batsman hit 48 off 22 in the last match, with 5 sixes, and batted at a staggering strike rate of 218+.

Jitesh Sharma (WK)

Captain Shubman Gill might allow Jitesh Sharma to play in the third T20I against Zimbabwe. Dhruv Jurel was picked for the first two matches. Sharma will be replaced by Sanju Samson for the last two matches and the third T20I is the only match he can play in the series.

Washington Sundar

Washington Sundar will be an all-rounder in India’s starting XI. The right-handed batsman scored 27 runs in the first match and did not get a chance to bat in the second T20I. He has also done a good job with the ball, picking up 1 and 2 wickets respectively in both matches.

Ravi Bishnoi

Ravi Bishnoi will also lead Team India’s spin attack in the upcoming game. The right-arm bowler took 4 wickets in the first game and returned with 2 wickets in the second.

Avesh Khan

Avesh Khan had a spectacular performance in the previous T20I match as he picked up 3 wickets for just 15 runs in his 3 overs. He will remain in the playing XI after his impressive performance.

Mukesh Kumar

Mukesh Kumar is another bowler who captured three wickets in the last match. The right-handed bowler took two crucial wickets early on to dismantle Zimbabwe’s top order. Kumar will lead India’s pace attack once again.
