Team India once again proved to be too good for the hosts Zimbabwe in the ongoing One Day International Series. The home team was beaten by hefty margin of 62 runs in the second match. And, all eyes are set on the 3rd and final match. Even though the visitors have clinched the series already but, they would be looking forward to a 3-0 win.
In the two matches that have been played so far, the opening game seemed to be a matter of luck for the Blue Shirts when Indian side won simply by 4 runs. In the following match, team India demolished the hosts by piling up a total of 271 runs in the limited version of the game. Zimbabwe was then restricted to a total of 209 runs. Thus, for now, there remains no mystery as to who will be possibly winning the third match.
The match is scheduled for Tuesday, 12th July in Harare. Weather is expected to be warm and sunny, so the possibility of rains is completely ruled out. It is expected that the winning team will prefer to bat first.
The visitors who were termed to be a group of fringe players have not played too well against the minnows Zimbabwe. However, there were some excellent knocks by key players in the team as was expected in the second match. The list largely includes the likes of Captain Rahane, and M. Vijay performing brilliantly with the bat. Uthappa, Jadhav and Tiwary played their part well. The all-round performance of Stuart Binny was a major support for visitors. The India-A side has emerged strongly in the series to make the best of opportunity rewarded to them. So, the players would obviously look up to outshine the hosts.
Chibhabha's 72 was the highlight of the match for Zimbabwean team. The supporting roles were finely played by Richmond, Cremer and Sean Williams for the home side. Neville stood out as the supreme bowler by taking four important wickets. Donald Tiripano and Sikandar Raza are currently doing really well with the ball. The home team would need them continue performing equally well.
Team India is a winner already, so obviously they are high on confidence. Even though Zimbabwe would play to save their pride but, things may not work in their favor. Thus, in the Zimbabwe vs India 3rd ODI, betting odds as per popular bookmarkers are being predicted as-
India 1.31 and Zimbabwe 3.75
In what may prove to be a closely fought battle, put your money on team India that is expected to win the series by 3-0.
