The world has been painted blue by the boys in blue as India has won the ICC T20 World Cup under the able leadership of Rohit Sharma, and we are still celebrating. The country is busy processing the big gift team India has given all the cricket fans across India, and today as the boys return home, they are about to make headlines. All eyes will be on Mumbai, where the team is going to take part in a victory parade that will take place in the evening. While we celebrate this victory, another battalion of the Indian cricket team has landed in Harare, Zimbabwe, to play a five-match T20I series against Zimbabwe under the captaincy of the widely popular player Shubman Gill, who has joined the team directly from the USA. The euphoria is back in the air, and below is everything you should know about the same.

About India vs Zimbabwe

Team India will play against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club in a five-match series that starts on July 6, 2024. The India squad that is set to play against Zimbabwe is full of young players and also some debutants: Shubman Gill (Captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Abhishek Sharma (Debut), Rinku Singh, Sanju Samson, Dhruv Jurel (Debut), Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag (Debut), Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar, and Tushar Deshpande. The first two matches of the T20Is will also include Sai Sudharsan, Jitesh Sharma, and Harshit Rana.

Sai, Jitesh, and Harshit were announced as replacements for Sanju, Shivam, and Yashasvi after the latter three were stuck in Barbados amid the hurricane warning on the Caribbean islands. "The Men's Selection Committee has named Sai Sudharsan, Jitesh Sharma, and Harshit Rana as replacements for Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, and Yashasvi Jaiswal for the first two T20Is against Zimbabwe. Originally slated to join the Zimbabwe-bound squad for the upcoming five-match T20I series starting Saturday, July 6, the trio will travel to India first with the rest of the ICC T20 World Cup-winning Indian squad before departing for Harare," the statement read from BCCI.
