Zimbabwe to host India for three ODIs and three T20s
Zimbabwe are set to host India for three ODIs and three T20s in June at the Harare Sports Club. The six matches will be played over 12 days, starting with the first ODI on June 11 and the last T20 on June 22.
"After finalising all the formalities with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), we are pleased to announce the incoming tour scheduled for this June," Zimbabwe Cricket managing director Wilfred Mukondiwa said.
According to the Future Tours Programme, the teams were supposed to play one Test, but it was replaced by the three T20s. A senior BCCI official involved in the tour negotiations said the request to replace the Test with the T20Is came from Zimbabwe Cricket. He did not elaborate on the reason, but said the BCCI agreed readily to the change.
The last time India toured Zimbabwe was in July 2015, when the visitors won the ODI series 3-0 and the T20 series was tied 1-1. The tour will be India's fourth visit to Zimbabwe in the last six years.
