The series is part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, a 13-team competition serving as the main direct qualification route for the 50+ World Cup to be held in India on next year.

Zimbabwe are currently ranked 12th in the 13-team group, with just three wins from 15 matches.

The last time the ‘Men in Blue’ were in Zimbabwe was when a team led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni played three ODIs and as many T20Is in June-July 2016.

India recently wrapped up their England tour with series wins in the T20Is and ODIs.

A young Indian team, under the management of Shikhar Dhawan, will then play a series of three ODI matches against the West Indies followed by five T20I which will end on August 7.

Ahead of the series against India, Zimbabwe will host Bangladesh for three T20s from July 30.

They will tour Australia ahead of the showpiece event for three ODIs from August 28.
