- Indian team announced for Zimbabwe tour
- Virat Kohli also got rest for Zimbabwe series
- Rest to Rohit, command in the hands of Shikhar Dhawan
Team India for Zimbabwe Tour: The Indian team has been announced for the three ODI series to be held on Zimbabwe tour. For this series, 15 members have been given place in the Indian team. Team India’s regular captain Rohit Sharma has been rested on this tour. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the team in his absence. Earlier, in the three ODI series on the West Indies tour, the Indian team also played under the captaincy of Dhawan, which the team won 3-0 and made a clean sweep of the hosts.
Virat Kohli not part of Zimbabwe tour
The most special thing about the team going on the Zimbabwe tour is that the name of Virat Kohli is not included in it. Speculations were being made for Kohli, who has been struggling with poor form for a long time, to tour Zimbabwe, but he did not return in this series as well. Earlier, he is not a part of the team in the ODI series on the West Indies tour and the ongoing T20 series.
Jasprit Bumrah gets rest again
India’s star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has also been rested for the tour of Zimbabwe. He was also not a part of the team that went to the West Indies after the England tour. That is, the selectors decided to rest Bumrah on two back to back rounds. Like Bumrah, Mohammed Shami has also been rested on this tour.
Deepak Chahar and Washington Sundar are back
Fast bowler Deepak Chahar has returned for this series. He was battling injury for a long time. Keeping in mind the T20 World Cup to be held later this year, the selectors decided to include him in the team as soon as he became fit. Apart from Chahar, Washington Sundar, who is away from the team due to injury, has also returned to the team.
The team for the Zimbabwe tour is as follows:
Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Rituraj 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, Famous Krishna, Mohd Siraj, Deepak Chahar
