Toss India chose to bowl vs Zimbabwe
At the toss, Rahul said that the pitch was “harder than a couple of days ago,” but expected his bowlers to exploit the bit of nip in the air owing to a 9 am start in Harare.
India are 1-0 up in the three-match series after their bowlers dismissed Zimbabwe for 189 in the first game and their openers chased down the target in the 31st over.
