    IND vs ZIM 3rd T20I Live Updates: Pitch report

    “Stark difference to the pitches used in the previous games. There is some grass but it is well rolled into the pitch. There are some cracks which signal that it it pretty dry. This might be a good batting surface, but batting would get tricky in the second innings if the sun is out and it will bake the surface. 160 could be a winning total on a track like this.”

    IND vs ZIM 3rd T20I Live Updates: Here’s what Sikandar Raza said at the toss

    “We were going to bowl first either way. The surface isn’t as moist as the first, not very flat. Will see the seamers coming into the contest, and expect some slow turn. Hopefully, the boys have learnt a few lessons from the second game. We need to back our bowlers and keep them to as low a total as possible. Two changes for us. Innocent Kaia has a slight injury, Marumani is in. And Ngarava comes in for Luke Jongwe.”

  • 16:14 (IST)
