IND vs ENG 2022 | Don’t really like a silly term like ‘Bazball’, states Brendon McCullum

India will be in Zimbabwe in a month for the three-month ODI series. Although there has been no official announcement of dates yet, Cricbuzz has learned that three games in the ICC One-Day Super League are scheduled for August 18, 20 and 22.

At this point, these matches are of great importance to the home team. The points earned in the series will count towards next year’s ODI World Cup qualification. In reality, they are not that important for India, as Rohit Sharma’s team has directly qualified for the main tournament, which will be held in October 2023.

India is scheduled to play a Six ODI this month against England and the West Indies, but they are not in the Super League.

“We are absolutely delighted to host India and we look forward to a competitive and memorable series,” a Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) official told Cricbuzz on Friday (July 8). According to representatives, all matches will now be played at the Harare Sports Hall in the capital city. The Indian team will arrive in Harare on August 15.

“It’s a big opportunity for the players to play against the Indian players and for the cricketing fraternity in Zimbabwe. It will create a lot of interest amongst the younger generation to take up this game. Overall, the series is very good for Zimbabwe cricket,” said Lalchand Rajput, the former coach of the side, who has now been re-designated as the Technical Director. David Houghton is the head coach of the team, which is coached by Craig Erwin.

India has toured Africa for the first time in six years. After the MS Dhoni-led team played three ODIs and as many T20Is in June-July 2016, India was there for the last time. There will be no 20-way games this time as Sri Lanka, a week after the third and final ODI, will host the Asia Cup on August 27. With a quick break between the two series, India will be able to field two teams at the same time again.
