India Playing XI 2nd ODI: KL Rahul and co have started India vs Zimbabwe ODI series on a right note, winning the first match with ease. After the thumping win, all eyes are on the second ODI. With an eye on clinching the three-match series, India are expected to stick with the same Playing XI in Harare on Saturday. That means both Avesh Khan and Rahul Tripathi will miss out.

Many teams do not break a winning combination and India are also expected to do the same in Harare. Retaining the same team means, Rahul Tripathi would have to wait for his chance to make his India debut. A win in the second ODI might prompt the management to play Tripathi in the last game.

After a swashbuckling show by Shubman Gill as opener, he is set to retain his position at the top of the order alongside. However, it remains to be seen the kind of batting order, India would adopt in the second ODI.

There is no way KL Rahul would open after the success of Gill and Shikhar Dhawan, who scored unbeaten half-centuries in the match. With Rahul expected to open in the Asia Cup, him not opening in the first match was a surprise.

India Playing XI 2nd ODI: Will KL Rahul make any changes to Playing XI?

  • India used just five bowlers and collectively bowled 40.3 overs to dismiss Zimbabwe.
  • But with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill playing an unbeaten 192-run stand, no one got to bat.
  • KL Rahul will need to face competitive bowling to get sharp before the Asia Cup 2022.
  • However, as India did not have to jostle much in1st ODI, there is no scope for a change in the Playing XI.
  • Eyes were on Ishan Kishan, KL Rahul and Sanju Samson but none got to bat.
  • That means there will be no place for Rahul Tripathi.
  • Kuldeep Yadav did not have a good outing and he will be under the scanner in the 2nd ODI.
  • But as the three pacers bowled exceptionally well in 1st ODI, there will be no place for Avesh Khan.

India Playing XI 2nd ODI:

  1. Shikhar Dhawan
  2. Shubman Gill
  3. Ishan Kishan
  4. KL Rahul (c)
  5. Deepak Hooda
  6. Sanju Samson (wk)
  7. Axar Patel
  8. Deepak Chahar
  9. Kuldeep Yadav
  10. Prasidh Krishna
  11. Mohammed Siraj

Rahul could walk in at number three, and get the much-needed batting practice. He has not played since IPL 2022 and with Asia Cup and T20 World coming up, he needs some batting time.

As far as the middle order is concerned, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda and Sanju Samson will don the role. However, their batting slot depends on how does the top order fray. Losing early wickets might force in form Hooda up the order, else he can be used as a finisher.

In the spin department, Axar Patel, who bagged three wickets, will be involved in action alongside Kuldeep Yadav. The latter will be looking to be amongst the wickets. In form Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna and Mohammed Siraj will once again head the pace attack.
