Betting Tips
  • Sikandar Raza scored successive unbeaten hundreds in the series against Bangladesh and is our tip for Zimbabwe’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, we are backing fast medium bowler Luke Jongwe who took 2-38 in his last ODI.
  • Shubman Gill hit over 200 runs during the series win over West Indies and he is a strong choice for India’s highest run scorer on Thursday. Mohammed Siraj looked to have matured as a bowler in the Caribbean and he is our recommendation for India’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • 22 year old Shubman Gill made scores of 64, 43 and 98 not-out in Port of Spain last month. We recommend backing him to score over 33.5.

ZIM vs IND 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Zimbabwe and India begin their three match ODI series at the Harare Cricket Club on Thursday morning. The hosts come into this series in high spirits after beating Bangladesh 2-1 in an IT20 and ODI series earlier this month. India beat West Indies 3-0 during late July. Read on as we preview this opening ODI. This game gets underway at 09:15 local time.

Zimbabwe proved the pundits, bookies and many of their own fans wrong by beating Bangladesh last month. They will believe that they can do something special in this series also.

India defeated West Indies in all three of their ODIs but the first two games were won by only three runs and two wickets. Although they have an inexperienced squad, many of their players would get in most other ODI sides.

ZIM vs IND Match Toss Prediction

Zimbabwe won the toss throughout their series with Bangladesh and chose to field first each time. We predict that both teams will elect to bowl first if they win the toss.

ZIM vs IND Pitch Report

This pitch will turn for the spinners but do not rule out the Indian pace bowlers who can perform on any wicket. We expect a par score to be over 300.

Weather Report

The temperature will get up as high as 28 degrees in the early afternoon after being only 17 degrees at the start of the game. There is no chance of rain or any interruptions to the match.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

Regis Chakabva will captain the side during this series in the absence of Craig Ervine who is still recovering from a hamstring injury. Joining Ervine on the sidelines are Wellington Masakadza (shoulder) and quick bowlers Blessing Muzarabani and Tendai Chatara.

ZIM Key Players

  • Sikandar Raza - The vastly experienced batting all-rounder was in sublime form in the series against Bangladesh. He hit the most runs and took the most wickets on both sides during the series.
  • Regis Chakabva - The captain hit his first ODI century in his last appearance against Bangladesh. He now has two international tons after previously making 101 in a Test in 2014.
  • Luke Jongwe - The right arm fast medium bowler took the wickets of Anamul Haque and Hasan Mahmud in the final ODI earlier this month. He has 35 wickets in this format.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe lost the final ODI in their series against Bangladesh but triumphed in the two previous games.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing 11

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

KL Rahul will come back into the side as captain after missing the recent tours of England and West Indies through injury. The top order batter will be looking to prove his fitness as well as his form with an eye on the T20 World Cup in October. Washington Sundar had been selected for this tour but had to pull out with a shoulder injury.

IND Key Players

  • Shubman Gill - The right handed opener looked to have gone up a level during the series in West Indies. He was cruelly deprived of a century by rain in the final ODI.
  • KL Rahul - The ODI skipper has been in fantastic form across all formats over the past two years. Sometimes knocked for his strike-rate, he averages 46.48 in ODIs.
  • Mohammed Siraj - India fans can always rely on enthusiasm from Siraj but we saw accuracy and responsibility in the Caribbean. He finished with 2-14 in the final game against West Indies.

IND Team Form

India beat England 2-1 and followed up with a 3-0 win in West Indies. They are playing excellent cricket irrespective of the venue or conditions.

ZIM vs IND Top Team Bowlers

With the ball, Luke Jongwe, Victor Nyauchi and Brad Evans are our picks with the ball for Zimbabwe. Evans took 2-53 in his second ODI appearance just over a week ago.

Our recommendations are Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj and Prasidh Krishna with the ball for India. Yadav took 21 wickets in this year’s IPL and should bowl well on this surface.

Zimbabwe vs India Prediction

After hosting associate teams for the recent T20 World Cup qualifiers and Bangladesh for the white ball series earlier this month, Zimbabwe now get to test themselves against one of the strongest cricketing nations in this game. We expect India to be too good and are backing them to win this opening ODI.

Final Verdict

India are favourites to beat Zimbabwe at odds of 1.05
