Zimbabwe’s Tinashe Panyangara will miss today’s 2nd ODI against India due to a groin strain he suffered during the previous game.
India witnessed a narrow win against Zimbabwe in the first match and is all set for game two, which is to be played on Sunday, July 12, 2015, at the Harare Sports Club, Harare.
Zimbabwe has again won the toss and put India in to bat first. Indian playing XI unchanged.
The men in blue defeated their opponents by four runs in a last-ball thriller to take 1-0 series lead.
The match will be aired tomorrow at 1230 local (0430 GMT).
India will have to work harder on their middle-order batting woes. This is because the Zimbabweans proved that it wouldn’t be easy for Captain Ajinkya Rahane’s men to walk away with wins despite being favorites on the paper, prior to the series.
India can’t drop its guard against this feisty team. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, has to turn every rock upside down to defeat the mighty Indians to maintain 1-1 series, lest team India will clinch the series by an unassailable 2-0 lead.
