ZIM vs IND Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jul 10, 2024

India crushed Zimbabwe in the second T20 and ended up equalizing the series 1-1. Things are about to become a lot tougher for Zimbabwe as three first-choice players from the Indian team have joined this young squad also. Zimbabwe will take hope from its performance in the first match and believe it has another couple of upsets in store.

ZIM vs IND Team Previews

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe was quite poor in the field in the second T20 and that cost them. They put down Abhishek Sharma when he was just 27 of 24 balls and also later when he was 77. There were some misfields and as a whole, it looked as if Zimbabwe was just shocked at the assault that it was being subjected to. 

Still, we did see some good bowling from Zimbabwe in the first 10 overs when they kept India under check. This is something that could happen in the third T20 match as well, especially as India's top order could change again with players not very used to the conditions. 

Tendai Chatara and Luke Jongwe are average bowlers who try honestly but are unlikely to get too many wickets in a match too often. Blessing Muzarabani and Sikandar Raza are the two bowlers that can pick up wickets consistently and are good options to punt on for the Top Bowler betting market. 

Among the batters, Brian Bennett has caught the attention of everyone with his attractive strikeplay. We really hope to see him fulfill his potential and play a big inning to put him on the world map. He and Sikandar Raza are the two outstanding batters in this Zimbabwe lineup. 

If they fall early, we don't see Zimbabwe getting past 130-140.

India

India has some selection headaches to take care of ahead of the third T20. Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Shivam Dube have all joined the team and are expected to play. In their places, we think Sai Sudharsan, Dhruv Jurel, and possibly Ruturaj Gaikwad will miss out in this match. 

That is especially tough on Gaikwad who scored 77 in the previous match but Jaiswal is a top-order cricketer and replacing him for someone Riyan Parag does not make sense. India also played with just four bowlers in the previous match so Riyan Parag's bowling might become quite crucial also even though Shivam Dube will add another option. 

India's batting lineup stretches down to number 8 with this configuration, something that we think the team needs if it is to continue its ultra-aggressive approach. Bet on India to hit the Most Sixes, Most Fours, have the batter with the most runs, and more such markets. 

The odds on these markets are unlikely to be great individually but you can stack them for a parlay and make some very decent returns. 

Mukesh Kumar and Avesh Khan are likely to be the two first-choice fast bowlers with support from Washington Sundar and Ravi Bishnoi as the spinners. A combination of Abhishek Sharma, Shivam Dube, and Riyan Parag will end up fulfilling the quota of the fifth bowler.  

The expected shuffle will make India uncomfortable but we still think it has more than enough to end up the winner.

ZIM vs IND Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to bat first. Both matches so far have been won by the team batting first as well. 

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no threat of rain in Harare so we should have an uninterrupted match. The pitch has been a bit low and slow in both matches. The batters have to adapt to the lack of bounce and pace after which they can play their shots. We think a par score on this surface is around 160. 

ZIM vs IND Betting Tips

Zimbabwe has shown fight in both games and cannot be written off completely. however, with reinforcements coming for the Indian team, we don't think this is the match where you want to take a chance on the upset. 

Bet on India to win.

The odds are a bit lower than what we would have liked but they are still good enough for a punt. Sharma smashed a six off his first ball in the previous match. He also hit 39 sixes in the recently concluded IPL. Clearing the boundary is almost guaranteed if he spends any significant time at the crease.

We saw 28 runs hit in the previous match. We also saw more than 20 runs being hit multiple times during the India inning. With the Indian batting hitting its stride, it is worth the risk to bet on this happening once more.
