IND vs ZIM, 1st ODI Live Updates: India face Zimbabwe in the first ODI of the three-match series at the Harare Cricket Club. India’s designated captain for the series, KL Rahul is back in action after a long layoff, which included a surgery for sports hernia, and a positive COVID-19 test. India are without some of their big names, who all have been rested ahead of the Asia Cup which starts in 10 days time in the UAE. With not many guaranteed starters, India face a selections headache, especially behind sticks with Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, are also depleted, mainly due to injuries but this might be their best chance of pulling off an upset over a second string Indian side.
