India openers Ajinkya Rahane and Murali Vijay make an excellent start to the innings as they have brought up their 50 in the sixth over of the innings. Vijay and Rahane have managed to put bad deliveries away so far and Zimbabwe’s wayward bowling has helped India’s cause. India are looking in an extremely good position in this game. India have a reasonably good batting line-up and will look to set a huge target for Zimbabwe to chase down. India go into this game high on confidence after they won the One-Day International (ODI) series 3-0 and will look to win the T20I series as well. LIVE BLOG: INDIA vs ZIMBABWE, 1st T20I at Harare
