Out of a possible five debutants, India have given chances to four this series. The fifth debut, if it happens, will be historic, making Parvez Rasool the first cricketer from the politically troubled state of Jammu & Kashmir to play for India. With Rohit Sharma finally getting some runs in the series, it won’t be a bad idea to give Ajinkya Rahane – who will also be travelling to South Africa – a go as well.
India (probable): 1 Cheteshwar Pujara, 2 Rohit Sharma/Ajinkya Rahane, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Ambati Rayudu, 5 Suresh Raina, 6 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 7 Ravindra Jadeja/Parvez Rasool, 8 Amit Mishra, 9 Mohit Sharma, 10 Jaydev Unadkat, 11 Mohammed Shami
Zimbabwe (probable): 1 Vusi Sibanda, 2 Sikandar Raza, 3 Hamilton Masakadza, 4 Brendan Taylor (capt & wk), 5 Sean Williams, 6 Malcolm Waller, 7 Elton Chigumbura, 8 Prosper Utseya, 9 Brian Vitori, 10 Tendai Chatara, 11 Michael Chinouya
Fact And Stats:
- Three of the top five run-getters this series are from Zimbabwe, but the top two are Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan.
- If India win the final game, it will be their first 5-0 series win outside India. They have blanked England twice at home, in 2008 and 2011, and New Zealand once, in 2010.
- This is Brendan Taylor’s second-worst ODI series in terms of batting average.
