India almost always sends a 'B' team to Zimbabwe on the rare occasions that it travels there and that is the case this time as well. Of course, India's bench strength is such that the team can compete with the best in the world. Zimbabwe is fresh off a win against Bangladesh. That would have given it some confidence and while beating India might be difficult, it will certainly attempt to push it close.
All the best cricket betting sites in India (and the world) have India as the overwhelming favorite to win this match, as can be expected. There are still some betting markets where you will get better value.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Zimbabwe vs India 1st ODI 2022. The match will be played at the Harare Sports Club, Harare on the 18th of August 2022.
Zimbabwe was propelled by brilliance from Sinkadar Raza in the series against Bangladesh. He ended up as the highest run-scorer and the highest wicket-taker across the series. It would be an understatement to say that Raza is going to play a major role for Zimbabwe in this series.
It is not all just about him, though.
A couple of other batters stood out including Innocent Kaia (he hit a century in the series against Bangladesh), Ryan Burl, and Milton Shumba. Despite the recent encouraging performances, we do not expect too many miracles from this Zimbabwe batting lineup against India.
The bowling lineup is quite weak. Luke Jongwe and Richard Ngarava will lead the attack with help from the all-rounders. Getting wickets or even keeping the scoring rate in check is going to be quite difficult for Zimbabwe.
Tadiwanashe Marumani, Innocent Kaia, Sean Williams, Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabva, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Brad Evans, Victor Nyauchi, Richard Ngarava.
India goes into this series with not much to play for, however, it will be keeping a close eye on some players. KL Rahul has been added to the squad and the team would love for him to play with positivity and get some runs. Similarly, Deepak Chahar is making a comeback after injury and India certainly has him in the plans for the T20 World Cup.
Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, and Axar Patel are all players that are on the cusp of the Indian team. They have all the motivation to really make this series count and be next in line whenever a slot opens up.
Every single player in this team is one that has done well in the IPL or for India in the past. Shikhar Dhawan adds so much experience to the team and will be invaluable at the top as well.
We may see some changes in the team composition and batting order to try and give as many players as possible a go but you could pick a random eleven from this squad and that will be tough to beat.
Mohammad Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan, and Shardul Thakur are all a part of the squad. It is going to be a highly effective bowling unit that Zimbabwe gets to face, no matter who makes it to the actual playing eleven.
Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Lokesh Rahul, Deepak Hooda, Sanju Samson, Axar Patel, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

The conditions in Harare are expected to be excellent for match day. The pitch is going to be flat, a bit slow, but still excellent for batting. 300 is certainly on the cards while playing at this venue. India has won its previous nine matches played at the Harare Sports Club so it will feel quite confident coming here again.
