This is the list of India squad for ODI team, while the captain MS Dhoni will remain as captain of Indian team on both formats, while BCCI is expected to make some changing to the Indian T20 cricket team against host.
Dhawal Kukarni, Jasprit Bumrah and Barinder Sran are also in the Indian team squad against Zimbabwe for ODI series based on 3 matches total. This is the most important thing that MS Dhoni will take some new boys to the Zimbabwean as he has been quite familiar to the experienced and old guys, but these new players could face some troubles regarding the following attitude towards skipper Dhoni.
On the other side, the Zimbabwean team is also fully prepared as they have added some new players, but most of this team contains experienced players. Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Wellington Masakadza and Tawanda Mupariwa are surely in the tour and they are serious threat to Dhoni XI.
