Shikhar Dhawan Will Lead India In ODIs Against Zimbabwe
Dhawan recently led India to a 3-0 win over West Indies in an ODI series in which several seniors were rested. Including Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah. The selectors appear to be following a similar pattern here.
Rahul Tripathi has also named to the squad, and it will be interesting to see how he performs if given a chance.
Deepak Chahar’s return means the fast bowling all-rounder is back to full fitness.
This series will be critical for Chahar to demonstrate his fitness. He will also be hoping to play T20Is in order to stake a claim for a spot in the squad for the T20 World Cup.
Chahar was injured and missed the IPL. His ability to bat down the order makes him a valuable asset in white ball cricket.
Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, and Washington Sundar are also in the running, and it will be a crucial opportunity for them to play with the Indian team.
Mohammed Siraj will spearhead the pace attack alongside Prasidh Krishna and Avesh Khan.
India’s squad for 3 ODIs:
Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi. Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Sanju Samson (wicket-keeper), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur. Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohd Siraj, Deepak Chahar.
