IND vs ZIM: Win in Melbourne is a must.. or semis will be difficult.. Many changes in Team India’s playing 11?

India vs Zimbabwe T20 World Cup 2022: India must win the match against Zimbabwe to reach the semi-finals. Otherwise the results will change.

The Indian cricket team is coming off with a good performance so far in the ICC T20 World Cup-2022. However, Team India’s place in the semi-finals is yet to be confirmed. For this, Rohit Sena must win the match against Zimbabwe on Sunday. If we win this match we are sure to reach the semi finals. But if the Zimbabwean team wins, India will be in trouble. Rain also hampered many matches in this World Cup. Even if the match between India and Zimbabwe is canceled due to rain, India will benefit. Because another point will be added to India’s account. With this, Rohit Sena has a chance to play the semi-final.

Will there be a huge innings from Rohit?

India must win to reach the semi-finals. Captain Rohit Sharma will also try to play a big innings in this match. Despite playing some impressive innings, the Indian captain could not turn them into long innings. Rohit, who has scored only 74 runs in the four matches played so far in the tournament, will now enter the field where he has played some memorable innings.

It is difficult to underestimate the Zimbabwean team.

The Indian team has to register a victory against Zimbabwe under any circumstances. In the background of the Zimbabwean team led by Regis Chakabwa being a strong competitor.. Rohit Sharma’s team must win. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe made a good start in the tournament but could not continue their momentum. Zimbabwean batsmen have not performed well so far and it is not easy to score runs for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Shami.

If you lose, you are out of the tournament.

But India will not make the mistake of taking Zimbabwe lightly. Because Zimbabwe has changed the heads of some teams in this World Cup. Defeated a strong team like Pakistan. In such a situation, if Zimbabwe is taken lightly, Team India has a chance to become dangerous.

Semi finals equation..

If they win this match, India will reach the top position in Group-2. But if they lose, Pakistan will be shown the way to reach the semi-finals. If Pakistan beat Bangladesh in their last match, they will advance on the basis of better run rate.

The other team in the group, South Africa, is currently second with five points. A win against the Netherlands will also advance it. But if South Africa loses and Pakistan wins, then Pakistan and India will be in the top 2. Team India continues to top Group 2. Then Team India could face either England or Australia in the semi-finals.

Will Huda get a chance?

The Indian team has not changed the batting order at present. Akshar Patel was left out against South Africa and Deepak Hooda was introduced. The Indian team management is likely to give Deepak Hooda another chance as the Zimbabwean batting order has stalwarts like Craig Erwin, Sean Erwin, Ryan Burley and Sean Williams.

However, India’s biggest challenge will come from Pakistan-born Sikandar Raza, who is in excellent form at the moment. Another option would be to try Harshal Patel. Yuzvendra Chahal is yet to be tried. Because the team management did not want a long line of batsmen at the end. But if India face England in the semi-finals, Chahal may get a place because of his good record against English batsmen.

For the first time..
