The schedule for the same will be announced soon but the games are expected to be played on August 18, 20, and 22.
The matches are going to be important from Zimbabwe’s point of view as the points from the series will help them qualify for next year’s ODI World Cup.
“We are absolutely delighted to host India and we look forward to a competitive and memorable series,” a Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) official was quoted as saying by the cricket portal.
The former coach of Zimbabwe, Lalchand Rajput has said that it will be a great opportunity for the players of Zimbabwe to play against the big Indian players.
“It’s a big opportunity for the players to play against the Indian players and for the cricketing fraternity in Zimbabwe.”
“It will create a lot of interest amongst the younger generation to take up this game. Overall, the series is very good for Zimbabwe cricket,” said Lalchand Rajput, the former coach of Zimbabwe, who has now been assigned as the Technical Director.
The tour to the African nation is the first for India in six years. The last time India was there was when a Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side had played three ODIs and as many T20Is in June-July 2016.
