The Indian squad will have a brief assignment in Zimbabwe before the Asia Cup in the UAE, where the KL Rahul-led team will play a three-match ODI series against the hosts. India will be visiting Zimbabwe for the first time since 2016 when they went there for a three-match T20I series. India has been the best team in every format, and they come into this series after sweeping the West Indies in the ODI series and defeating Nicholas Pooran’s team 4-1 in the T20I series, both while playing a reserve lineup. Innocent Kaia, a Zimbabwean batter, is optimistic that the hosts would defeat India with a massive shock.

Since their first trip in 1992, India has faced Zimbabwe 13 times in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has only been able to triumph in two of those series across all forms, whilst India has gone undefeated since 2001, winning six times and drawing the other two. India’s victories include three consecutive ODI series losses in 2013, 2015, and 2016, two T20I series victories, and one Test series victory.

Innocent boldly projected a 2-1 ODI series triumph for Zimbabwe in an interview with Times Now, despite the lopsided rivalry over the previous 21 years. He also said that he wants to score hundreds of runs and become the series’ leading scorer.

“2-1 in Zimbabwe’s favor. The series is won by us. In terms of goals for myself, I want to score hundreds of runs and be the leading run-scorer. simple strategy To lead the series in runs scored, all I want to do is score runs. That is my aim, he declared.

Zimbabwe enters the series having won both the T20 Internationals and the One Day Internationals by identical scores of 2-1. However, it was their first significant home victory since a 2-1 ODI victory against Ireland in the 2015–16 season.

“It’s simply the attitude; it’s not about the clock ticking. We were constantly informed and taught by David (Houghton, head coach), who came in, that we must play positive cricket, which is what we are doing. Despite the fact that not much has changed and that it is not a very significant shift, we are no longer hesitant to play our shots “Added he.
