This Indian team has completely young and new faces but expect of Faiz Fazal all the other 14 players have IPL contracts and have enough expereince to handle the pressure of t20 format.
While the likes of Kedar Jadhav and Manish Pandey had toured Zimbabwe in 2015 under the Captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane and they managed to draw that series by 1-1 as India team was defeated in the second game of 2015 t20 series.
Meanwhile, players like KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah could prove to be the X factor for the Indian side led by the expereince of MS Dhoni in t20 Cricket as a skipper.
On the other side, Zimbabwe team would be looking to bounce back from the 3-0 defeat by the hands of Indian team. This zimbabwe team has really been poor in both bowling and batting in the 50 over format.
But Zimbabwe fans can expect for some competiton from their local team as they had done in the 2015 t20 series against the same side.
In 2015 series Zimbabwe had won the second match of the t20 series and mananged to draw the series by 1-1. The coach of Zimbabwe Makhaya Ntini need to ask his boys to give some solid performance both with ball and bat.
