India squares off with Zimbabwe for a 3-match ODI series as a part of the ICC ODI Super League starting from the 18th of August. After steamrolling West Indies 4-1 in the T20Is, India looks to sweep the Zimbabweans under the carpet with their solid performances.
Led by KL Rahul who was a last-minute addition to the squad, India does not have their A-team which will be playing in this tour. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya have been rested for the tour. Jasprit Bumrah has a back injury and will also miss the upcoming Asia Cup 2022.
