As it happened: Zimbabwe vs India, 1st ODI
Posted on: 11:38 AM IST Jul 24, 2013
Live updates from the first ODI between India and Zimbabwe being played at the Harare Sports Club.
For Virat Kohli's young Indian team this five-match series presents a chance to test the bench strength, while hosts Zimbabwe will see this as a chance to upset the reigning world champions. Zimbabwe do not get many chances to host international cricket so there is an added incentive to make these five ODIs memorable. The last time India toured Zimbabwe, for a triangular also featuring Sri Lanka, they were twice beaten by Zimbabwe and failed to reach the final.
India have rested MS Dhoni for the tour.
