India and Zimbabwe face off in the second and final Twenty20 International (T20I) at the Harare Sports Club in Harare on Sunday. India are currently leading the series 1-0 after an easy 54-run win in the first T20I, and will look to maintain a clean sheet at the end of their tour with a win in the upcoming T20I. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, will look to break their losing deadlock, losing all the matches barring the first one in one-sided manner. India skipper Ajinkya Rahane will look to win the toss once again, and set Zimbabwe a tough target once again. LIVE SCORECARD: India vs Zimbabwe, 2nd T20I at Harare

Despite showing an initial spark in the first one-dayer, Zimbabwe quickly fizzled out against India. Sunday’s match will be their last chance to get their act together and go for a consolation victory in front of their home crowd. But it would certainly be an uphill task for the hosts to lift themselves up and go all guns blazing against a confident Indian side, who in turn would be eyeing to end their campaign on a high.

Zimbabwe will have to play out of their skins and latch on to their chances, which they have missed so far in the tournament, in order to topple India. The Indians have hardly any concerns as every member of the side has chipped in with useful contributions till now. Although India fielded a second-string team, they had little trouble overpowering the Zimbabweans.
