ZIM vs IND: India registered their 12th successive bilateral series win over West Indies by winning it 3-0.

However, the BCCI has given a break to Virat Kohli and Jasprit Burmah from the tour. The former Indian skipper is struggling with his form after almost three years now. He had a below-average tour of England. Notably, India will travel to Zimbabwe for three ODIs after the current series. As per some reports, it has been confirmed that the BCCI wants Virat to play those matches to regain his form. So it is a big question whether that will help him or not.

However, it is not yet confirmed that Virat will play or if his break will get extended. But after looking at the upcoming schedule, it is important for him to have sufficient game time. Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris feels that the tour of Zimbabwe will not help Virat build up for the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. Styris stated in a conversation with Sports18 that it is a complete lose-lose situation for the 33-year-old. He stated that the Indian selectors and Rahul Dravid should ask Virat how much time he needs to be 100 percent before the T20 World Cup. Styris said,

“So yeah, Zimbabwe, I’d forget about it because I don’t necessarily think there’s a lot to gain from him. He might score a cheap hundred, which goes great for the confidence but doesn’t necessarily change too much moving forward because I still believe he’s the key man for India.”

Furthermore, he said that it will totally depend on how the Indian selectors choose the team. Do they want to pick the players randomly or are they looking to pick their best players for the tour? He added, “There’s a real methodology around how they go about putting a team together.”

India will play three ODI matches against Zimbabwe. The tour will start on Thursday, August 18 at Harare Sports Club, Harare. The third and final match will be played on Monday, August 22. All three ODIs will be played at Harare Sports Club, Harare.
