They need players who can dig deep and get some sort of a score against their name. The conditions in Harare are not the easiest for batting and that has not helped the Zimbabwean cause. India on the other hand are confident considering their performance and body language in the tournament in general.

Their bowlers once again came to the party as far as this third match was concerned. We will wait and watch if Zimbabwe can put up a challenge in the T20 series. It is an important series for Zimbabwe.
They have pretty much looked a bit listless in general and they would require something special to turn this around. India will of course not serve them anything on the platter. We will wait and see if Zimbabwe can surprise us or if the pattern continues the way it has been. At last, one hopes one gets to see better action come the T20 games.
