The last time these teams came together, the series was draw 1-1. Zimbabwe have played 51 T20Is, tasting victory only 12 times. Out of these victories, they have beaten Australia, West Indies and India once. Thus, this merits the fact that they have enough calibre to succeed in this format but have failed to come good as a cohesive unit. The only change India made in the ODI series was the replacement of Karun Nair with Faiz Fazal, who scored a vital fifty on debut. However, the likes of Unadkat, Mandeep and Yadav were benched in all the games. Chances of them getting a call in this match seems high.

Most of the Indian players are coming on the back of remarkable performances in Indian Premier League (IPL), which is one of most competitive T20 domestic league. Like Dhoni did in the first match, he will go for the kill in the T20Is as well. If not winning the series, Zimbabwe will have to at least put a good fight, and prove their mettle.
