Zimbabwe will take on India in the 2nd ODI of the series on Saturday. Zimbabwe were completely outclassed in all departments by India in the 1st ODI as a result they lost the match by a massive 10 wickets margin. They did a great job to reach close to 190 run-mark despite being reduced to 6 for 83, thanks to a rescue act from Brad Evans and Richard Ngarava who added 70 runs for the 9th wicket. Their bowlers were on the receiving hand in the latter half as they got proper treatment from the Indian openers. There is no dearth of talent and all they just need to do is apply their skills according to the situation. It’s a do-or-die game for them to stay alive in the series.
With clinical all-round performances, India gained a 1-0 lead with a facile 10 wickets win in the 1st ODI. The bowlers steal the show in the first half with Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, and Axar Patel picking up 3 wickets each, and later it was Gill and Dhawan’s show who dominated the entire Zimbabwe bowling unit to steer the side home in the 31st over. KL Rahul decided to drop himself down the order to allow the in-form pair to open the innings. It will be a headache for the selectors in the coming series as Shubman Gill making a count of every opportunity. They look to wrap up the series with a game left.
What is the pitch report for ZIM vs IND, 2nd ODI?
There will be more assistance for the bowlers in the initial half an hour of play and later the wicket tends to become flat making it completely easy for the batters to score runs. Anything over 270 is highly competitive here.

What are the Top Picks, players for Dream11, My11circle and MPL for ZIM vs IND, 2nd ODI?
Top Pick – Batter
Shubman Gill extending his dream run of form in the 50 overs format. It won’t be a surprise if he becomes a regular opener for Men in Blue in the near future. He remained unbeaten on 82* runs in 1st ODI which comprised 10 fours and a six.
Top Pick – All-Rounder
Sikandar Raza failed to make an impression in the 1st ODI as he got dismissed for just 12 runs. He needs to come up with a different game plan in order to score runs against the quality Indian bowling line-up. He is expected to perform well in this match.
Top Pick – Bowler
Making his comeback into the National side after recovering from injury, Deepak Chahar straight away announced his arrival by picking 3 wickets in the 1st ODI and rightly deserved the player of the match award.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
Regis Chakabva played a captain’s knock and was the top scorer for Zimbabwe in the 1st ODI with 35 runs in 51 balls which includes 4 fours.
It’s a milestone alert as Shikhar Dhawan reached the 6500 run-mark in ODIs. He bought up his 38th ODI half-century in the series opener and remained not out on 81* runs.
What are the fantasy suggested teams for ZIM vs IND, 2nd ODI?
1. Regis Chakabva (vc), Ryan Burl, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Shubman Gill (c), Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Axar Patel, Richard Ngarava, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna
