ZIM vs IND: Zimbabwe vs India 2nd ODI Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Updates

ZIM vs IND 2nd ODI Dream11 Prediction: On Saturday, August 20, at the Harare Sports Club in Harare, the second ODI in the three-match series between Zimbabwe and India will take place. India dominated the first game by a margin of 10 wickets, and they’ll be expecting to win the entire series in this one match. KL Rahul was the toss winner and the team’s captain in the opening game. By dismissing Zimbabwe for just 189 runs, the Indian bowlers showed that the skipper’s decision to bowl was the right one. The Indian team won the match by 10 wickets thanks to the opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill.

Before this series, Zimbabwe played Bangladesh in a famous series. On the strength of some impressive performances, they took both the ODI and T20I series. They were, however, unable to compete at their best against India in the opening game and were doomed from the outset. Zimbabwe is still in the series, and if they play well as a team in the upcoming game, they may even defeat the Indian side.

Top Picks for ZIM vs IND Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Batters

Shikhar Dhawan has been playing excellent ODI cricket this year. The left-handed batter has made five half-centuries in 11 innings, which is the most in a year since 2017. With 469 runs at an average of 52.11 and a strike rate of 75.52 this year, he leads India in ODI run scoring.

KL Rahul excelled in the IPL as both a hitter and a skipper. With a strike rate of 135.38 and 616 runs scored in just 15 games, he helped the Lucknow Super Giants get to the Play-offs stage. However, since the end of the IPL, he has been unable to join the team due to an injury. He was forced to skip a number of crucial games, including the postponed fifth Test against England. And he was unable to bat in the first game because Dhawan and Gill started India’s innings. He made his limited overs debut in Zimbabwe, so this is a significant site for him, and he will be anxious to show off his batting prowess here.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

In the first game, Axar Patel returned with a stat line of 3 for 24 in 7.3 overs, and he also reached 50 wickets in ODIs. He has played often for India in Test matches and T20 Internationals, but not in ODIs. He last appeared in this format for India back in 2017 before playing an ODI this year. Patel has taken 5 wickets and scored 85 runs in 4 games this season, including his first half-century against the West Indies last month.

Sikandar Raza’s batting performance this year has solidified him as a force to be reckoned with. In the first ODI against Bangladesh on August 5, Raza scored a century and contributed to his team’s five-wicket victory. His previous century was on August 4, 2015, making the time since then exactly 7 years. This was his first century on an international stage. He then backed it up with another century in the following game, giving the club the series victory. Raza has scored 484 runs in 10 games for Zimbabwe in ODIs this year, averaging 60.50 runs per game. Only three times in his career has he amassed more than 400 ODI runs in a calendar year.

Top Picks – Bowlers

In the first ODI, Deepak Chahar masterfully penned a comeback tale. Chahar last participated in an international match in February of this year and has been out ever since because of back and quadriceps injuries. During this time, CSK paid him INR 14 crores to join the team, making him the most expensive Indian bowler in IPL history. He was unable to participate in the IPL as well, though. Chahar was chosen for this restricted overs series after missing numerous others. He took three wickets for just 27 runs in the opening game, earning Player of the Match honours.

Since Prasidh Krishna made his ODI debut in March of last year, his ODI career has been underway for a little more than a year. The 26-year-old pacer has only played ODIs for India thus far; he hasn’t been tested in other forms. Prasidh picked up 18 wickets in 10 matches in 2021, with a strike rate of 27, an economy of 4.88, and an average of 22. He has taken the second-most wickets in this format for India this year.

The most crucial bowler for Zimbabwe in Blessing Muzarabani’s absence is Richard Ngarava. Ngarava has taken 7 wickets in 6 ODIs this year with a 42.14 average, a 5.36 economy rate, and a 47.1 strike rate. Ngarava ranks second among Zimbabwe’s top ODI wicket-takers this season.

Top Picks – Wicketkeepers

In Craig Ervine’s absence, the wicketkeeper-batter Regis Chakabva is captaining the team. In the most recent series against Bangladesh, he excelled and contributed to the team’s victory. Chakabva scored his first century in ODI play in match two of the series. He has scored 275 runs at an average of 30.55 in 9 ODIs this season.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for ZIM vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Regis Chakabva, Sanju Samson, Shikhar Dhawan (C), Lokesh Rahul (VC), Ryan Burl, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Sikandar Raza, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav, Richard Ngarva.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for ZIM vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Regis Chakabva, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Ryan Burl, Shubman Gill, Axar Patel (C), Sikandar Raza (VC), Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj, Richard Ngarava.

ZIM vs IND Risky Captaincy Choices:

Kuldeep Yadav played in just his second ODI of the year, and he was unable to claim a wicket. He may be an important player for India in this match, but he might not be the best choice to lead your fantasy team.

At the beginning of this month, Ryan Burl scored fifty against Bangladesh in the third Twenty20 international, earning him Player of the Match honours. In 5 ODIs this season, the middle-order hitter has scored 96 runs at an average of 32.

Player you should avoid:

Innocent Kaia made his ODI debut against Afghanistan this year and has since scored 249 runs at an average of 35.57 in 7 games. He scored just 4 runs in the opening ODI and should be avoided in your fantasy team for this game.
