IND vs ZIM: Washington Sunder has been replaced by all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed in India’s lineup for the three-match One-Day International series. The series will be played against Zimbabwe beginning on August 18.

Sundar, who suffered a shoulder injury while participating in a County match in England, would not be travelling with Zimbabwe. India and Zimbabwe will play the first One-Day International at the Harare Sports Club on Thursday. The following two ODIs on Saturday and Monday would also take place at the same location.

Shahbaz, a 27-year-old player for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2022 IPL, has been awarded for his outstanding performance. The Bengal left-arm spinner made a name for himself by taking 4 wickets and 219 runs in 16 games. The southpaw has a batting average of 41.64 and a bowling average of 19.47 from 18 first-class games.

KL Rahul was named the stand-in skipper for Shikhar Dhawan and will lead India. This was after he received medical clearance.

In the meantime, Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India, has been allowed a brief vacation. VVS Laxman will lead the Indian team on their tour of Zimbabwe. Vikram Rathour, Rahul’s batting coach, and Paras Mhambrey, his bowling coach, has also taken a break. Laxman will be assisted by former leg spinners Sairaj Bahutule and Hrishikesh Kanitkar. Dravid will join the squad for the Asia Cup later this month.
