India vs Zimbabwe 2016 ODI and T20 Series Live!

Last two tours to Zimbabwe resulted in India's favour with a score line of 5-0 and 3-0. Will it be a similar score line this time? Seems yes, because it is not only the second string young guns but also MS Dhoni who would be travelling to Zimbabwe for cricket. After 11 long years, Dhoni will play a cricket series in Zimbabwe. Watch India vs Zimbabwe live streaming on Ten Sports official website and live telecast on Ten 2 HD channel.

India will play three ODI and three T20 matches as mentioned below:

1st ODI on 11th June, 2nd ODI on 13th June, 3rd ODI on 15th June
1st T20 on 18th June, 2nd T20 on 20th June and 3rd T20I on 22nd June

India is lined up with lot of youngsters who would be roaring to go out and showcase their skills. Sans Dhoni the team is relatively inexperienced but good enough to register big wins in Zimbabwe. Most of them have played well in the IPL season and now they would snatch this opportunity to play for India with both hands.

Sanjay Bangar will be the coach for this tour. He believes he has got a very good squad to experiment with. Infact the squad is full of talent, it would be had to pick the final XI for a particular match. He is pretty confident the team will outplay Zimbabwe in all the matches.

MS Dhoni hasn't tasted too much of success in recent past. Asia Cup was a big win and three T20 matches win in Australia were worth watching. But the team couldn't go beyond semi finals of ODI and T20 world cups. Even that should be considered a decent show, but there are a lot of expectations from MS Dhoni. He has won all possible trophies in his regime so fans expect a lot more from him.

Kohli is already the captain of test side and there has been pressure on Dhoni to handover limited over captaincy to him. Dhoni has left the decision on BCCI. He will play ODI and T20 matches whereas he would rest when India would be busy playing lot many test matches in 2016-17. Australia, England and New Zealand are scheduled to visit India and hopefully Kohli would clear this test and win those series.

Head to head India has dominated over Zimbabwe. So there is no logic looking at the stats. While India looks very strong on paper, fans would expect good amount of resistance from Zimbabwean team. This would result in some good tight matches.
