Date: 6 Nov 2022
IST: 1:30 Pm
Local: 07:00 PM
Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne The team has never made it to the finals of any world cup and is currently ranked 14th in the world. Nevertheless, Zimbabwe has some talented players who could give the Indian team a run for their money. In this blog post, we will take a look at both the teams and see who has a better chance of winning the T-20 world cup 2022.\
The Indian cricket team, currently ranked second in the world, is set to take on minnows Zimbabwe in the World Cup on Sunday. India are placed in Group B alongside Pakistan, South Africa and the West Indies, while Zimbabwe are in Group A with Australia, England and New Zealand. This will be the first time that these two teams will be meeting each other in a World Cup match. India have never lost to Zimbabwe in any format of the game, and they will be expected to continue their dominance over the African side in this match as well. India are coming into this tournament on the back of some good form, having won seven out of their last eight ODIs. They have also beaten Zimbabwe in all three of their most recent encounters – two ODIs and one T20I – so they will start this match as favourites. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, have lost nine out of their last ten ODIs and have only won one T20I out of their last five attempts. They did manage to beat Afghanistan in their most recent ODI series, but that is not enough to suggest that they can trouble India in this match. The Indian team will be looking to win this match comfortably and get off to a good start in the World Cup.
Since the beginning of the tournament, Zimbabwe has been playing some outstanding cricket. They started off their campaign with a comfortable win over UAE and then stunned Pakistan in their next match. Against India, they put up a good fight but eventually succumbed to defeat. In their final group stage match against South Africa, Zimbabwe needed to win to keep their hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals alive. But despite putting up a good fight, they fell short by 9 runs and bowed out of the tournament. Despite not making it to the semi-finals, Zimbabwe can be proud of their performance in this tournament. They have shown that they are capable of competing with some of the best teams in the world and will only get better in the future.
T-20 world cup 2022
The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced today that the 2022 Men’s T20 World Cup will be held in India. This will be the first time that the T20 World Cup will be held in India, and the second time that an ICC World Cup has been held in the country (after the 50-over tournament in 1987). The 2022 Men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to take place from 18 October to 15 November. A total of 16 teams will take part in the tournament, with 10 teams qualifying automatically and the remaining six teams determined through a qualification process. India last hosted an ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup event in 2011, when it staged the 50-over tournament. The country also hosted the Women’s T20I World Cup in 2018. Speaking about the announcement, ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney said: “The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is one of our flagship events and we are delighted to be awarding it to India. The country is a powerhouse of world cricket and has proven itself to be a terrific host for major global sporting events. We are confident that India will put on a spectacular show for cricket fans around the world.” Sachin Tendulkar, who played in India’s victorious 1987 campaign, added: “It is always special to play cricket in front of your home crowd and I am sure the players will
India’s performance in the T-20 world cup 2022
India’s performance in the T-20 world cup 2022 has been nothing short of spectacular. The team has won all four of its matches so far, including a comprehensive victory over defending champions Zimbabwe. Led by captain Virat Kohli, India has shown great determination and skill to come out on top in every match. The batting line-up has been firing on all cylinders, with Kohli himself leading the way with two half-centuries. The bowlers have also been very impressive, led by Jasprit Bumrah who has taken nine wickets in four matches. With such strong performances across the board, India looks like a strong contender to win the T-20 world cup 2022.
Zimbabwe’s performance in the T-20 world cup 2022
Zimbabwe’s performance in the T-20 world cup 2022 has been impressive so far. They have won 3 out of their 4 matches and are currently at the top of Group B. Their only loss came against India in a close match. Zimbabwe will be looking to continue their good form in the rest of the tournament and make it to the knockout stage.
India vs Zimbabwe match in the T-20 world cup 2022
The 2022 T-20 world cup is an international cricket tournament that is scheduled to take place in India. This will be the sixth edition of the T-20 world cup, and the first to be held in India. The tournament is scheduled to take place from October 18th to November 15th, with a total of 60 matches being played across 12 venues in India. The format for the 2022 T-20 world cup will see each team play the other nine teams in their group once, before the top two teams from each group progress to the super 10 stage. The final will be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on November 15th. India are currently ranked second in the world in T-20 cricket, behind only Pakistan. They have won the T-20 world cup twice, in 2007 and 2014, and were runners up in 2010. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, are ranked 11th in the world and have never reached the final of a T-20 world cup. Given their respective rankings and recent form, it is clear that India will start as favourites when they take on Zimbabwe in their opening match of the 2022 T-20 world cup. However, with cricket being a sport where anything can happen on any given day, Zimbabwe will no doubt be hoping to spring a surprise and cause an upset against their more fancied opponents.
India will play Zimbabwe in the last match of the Group no 2 on 5 November, 2022. Both the teams would be hosted by the MCG stadium and official match timings are local time and IST. It’s a do or die match for India because if they lose this match, they will be in a weak position to qualify for the semi-final. There is no prediction for the rain as well so we’ll hopefully witness a complete game.

India’s win against Pakistan and Bangladesh turned out to be a big and an exciting victory.
India has some players in their team which are considered the best of the best all over the world. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are two of such players. Virat’s innings of 82 match winning and unbeaten runs against Pakistan was termed by himself as his one of the best innings so far. Moreover, Virat Kohli is on 3rd spot on the list of most runs in international cricket by Indian players and most runs in the T20 World Cups as well while Rohit Sharma can provide an explosive start. KL Rahul’s comeback is a good omen for India as we have seen this in the match against Bangladesh where he contributed with bat and in the fielding as well. Suryakumar Yadav is considered the Mr.360 of the Indian team as he has a variety of shots. Hardik Pandya is a brilliant finisher of the Indian team who is a fine pace bowler too.
The kind of performances Arshdeep, Bhuvneshwar and Md Shami have given until now in this tournament have benefitted India immensely. The Indian team currently has 4 pacers in it which is a good strategy considering Australian pitches favor pace bowlers. The Indian team is looking like a very balanced side.
The Zimbabwean team has given some exceptional performance in this T20 World Cup 2022 both in the group stage first and now in the Super-12. They performed magnificently well in the group stage and qualified for the Super-12 and just in their 2nd match of this event, they were able to defeat Pakistan in a thrilling contest. They were successful in defending 130 runs against Pakistan.
Zimbabwe’s team has some fine talent in their team. Blessing Muzarabani, who is a young fast bowler, was also named in their T20 World Cup squad. He bowled superbly against Pakistan. Another star player is Sikander Raza. During the past 1 year, he has scored 516 runs in 15 T20s at an average of 39.69 and holds the record of getting 7 man of match awards this year, the most by any cricketer in a year. While Wessly Madhevere is also in brilliant form from the previous year. The notable bowling performance from the Zimbabwe side from the previous 1 year has been from Sikander Raza and Luke Jongwe. These will be the key players of the Zimbabwe team. Sikander Raza’s performance in the qualifiers of this world cup ensured his team reached the Super-12 stage of the World cup. He can give a fine all-round performance even on bad days. Meanwhile, Richard Ngarava, another pacer of the Zimbabwean squad, remained economical as well in previous few matches.
The Indian team has more experienced players and considering past records and their bilateral contests, Zimbabwe doesn’t stand a chance against India. If they beat India, it would be an upset, a very big one.
