2nd ODI: India vs Zimbabwe – Players to watch out for

New Delhi: MS Dhoni and his men will be looking to take an unassailable 2-0 as they take on hosts Zimbabwe in the second match of the ongoing ODI series at Harare Sports Club.

The Men in Blue will be brimming with confidence after a comprehensive nine-wicket win against the hosts.

Here are players to watch out for from today's match:

Hamilton Masakadza: Despite being a vital cog in Zimbabwe's batting line-up, the right-hander failed to get off to a good start in the series and was dismissed for just 14 runs. In a do-or-die match, the onus will be on him to play a formidable knock at the top of the order.

Karun Nair: The right-hander was one of the most impressive batsmen in IPL 2016. Playing for Delhi Dardevils, Nair played some supeb knocks. After scoring just 7 runs in the first match, Nair would be desperate to hit a big knock in 2nd ODI.

In the bowling department, Zimbabwe bowlers need to pull up their socks after a poor show in the first ODI. While Indian seamers were right on the money in the first ODI, Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal would want to join the party today.
