After away tours against Ireland, England and the West Indies in the last two months, India are in Zimbabwe for three ODIs in Harare as part of the Cricket World Cup Super League.

India too are missing a handful of players, though the series brings opportunity for several players eager to make an impression.
Ruturaj Gaikwad could well make his ODI debut, in a top-order likely to also include Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill. Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna and Avesh Khan are just a few on the bowling side also looking to make a mark.
The top seven teams in the table at the end of the Super League automatically qualify for the 2023 World Cup, along with hosts India. The remaining teams will have to go through qualifiers in order to make it for the marquee event next year.
India currently occupy the seventh spot with 79 points from 12 games. On the other hand, Zimbabwe are a spot off the bottom in 12th with 35 points from 15 games.
Though it would be a Herculean effort, a 3-0 win over India could see them breathing down the necks of Australia, who are 8th in the standings and are currently occupying the last qualifying spot.
It's India's first tour of Zimbabwe since 2016, and the men in blue have happy memories of their last tour, where they whitewashed the hosts 3-0 in the ODI series.
All the action will be available LIVE on ICC.tv.
