IND vs ZIM T20I Series 2024: A new-look Indian team led by Shubman Gill is set to take on Zimbabwe in a five-match T20I series. The Men in Blue are new world champions in the shortest format of the game after the Rohit Sharma-led side defeated South Africa in a tense final to clinch the T20 World Cup 2024 trophy in Barbados. The win was not only a historic one as it ended India's ICC title drought but it was also followed by the retirements of three giant figures in the side-Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. After Rohit Sharma's retirement from T20Is, the BCCI is yet to announce a new skipper in the shortest format and while it may seem that Hardik Pandya is the obvious choice, Gill might have a shot at the role if he manages to impress in this series. IND vs ZIM 2024: Shubman Gill-Led New-Look Team India Lands in Harare for T20I Series Against Zimbabwe (Watch Video).

The Indian squad this time will have some fresh faces, the likes of which include Abhishek Sharma, Riyan Parag and Tushar Deshpande among others. Youngsters like Dhruv Jurel, Ravi Bishnoi and Washington Sundar are included as well. Meanwhile, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube will join the team after travelling to India first. The BCCI had earlier named Sai Sudharsan, Jitesh Sharma and Harshit Rana as replacements for these three players for the first two T20Is.

Zimbabwe, meanwhile, will look to make a statement after having missed the T20 World Cup 2024. Sikandar Raza is set to lead the African nation, and he, along with his side, will aim to make the most of the home conditions and put pressure on the Indian side early on in the series. The Zimbabwe squad also includes Antum Naqvi, who had scored a triple century, the first player to do so for a Zimbabwe team in the game. The Belgium-born batsman's inclusion, however, depends on the status of his citizenship. IND vs ZIM Dream11 Team Prediction, 1st T20I 2024: Tips and Suggestions To Pick Best Winning Fantasy Playing XI for India vs Zimbabwe in Harare.
