Today India vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Live Scorecard Prediction Team Sheets Updates 20 June 2016 :- After a shameful defeat by the hands of Zimbabwe in the first T20 international by 2 runs Indian team under the captaincy of MS Dhoni is all set to make a come back with full force as the second Twenty 20 match of the 2016 India tour of Zimbabwe is about to start where the whole nation of one billion people will be hoping to level the series today while the home side will be eying to win it.
Zimbabwe’s spirited show on Saturday did not just help them turn the morbid affairs of their home series against India, but also added a bit of spark to the Twenty20 International series itself. India looked completely unchallenged in the 50-over format and walked into the T20I series with the confidence of repeating their stellar performance. Yet, Zimbabwe batsmen managed to put their recent grief behind, to offer a sound challenge for the first time in 11 days.
It wasn’t the result but the manner in which India failed to finish on top in the chase that pricked MS Dhoni. The inexperience of handling the situation at the international level led to several batsmen throwing their wickets away at several junctures, making life tough for themselves. It was the unforced nature of errors from the young brigade that Dhoni lamented, and hoped for his boys to learn from such a fixture.
Dhoni reckoned the first game was the best time to provide chances to the inexperienced lot. Given their performances on Saturday and the do-or-die nature of Monday’s fixture, there is good chance Dhawal Kulkarni and Barinder Sran, two bowlers who played a lot more during the 2016 Indian Premier League are brought in for Rishi Dhawan and Jaydev Unadkat, who both conceded in excess of 10-an-over.
Richmond Mutumbami had taken a nasty blow to his midriff from a Jaydev Unadkat delivery in the first T20I and has been ruled out of the clash. If Vusi Sibanda regains fitness, he could fit in. Peter Moor could also be in the reckoning.
Zimbabwe wins the toss and has elected to bat first
