Overview

Zimbabwe produced arguably one of the biggest upsets in recent times when they shocked India to win the first Twenty20 International by two runs on 18 June. Elton Chigumbara was the star of the show for the hosts, smashing the opposition bowlers to all parts of the ground as he scored a match-winning 54 peppered with seven sixes off 26 balls.

Neville Madziva played a big role in Zimbabwe's win during India's chase, conceding only six runs off the final over with India needing just eight. The hosts' celebrations showed what this win meant for them, considering the financial instability that their cricket board seems to be perpetually in.

The Men in Blue were expected to cruise to victory, but failed as they did not do enough on the field. Manish Pandey aside, the Indians looked a tad jaded.

With only eight to get off the last over, one would have expected MS Dhoni to finish it off in style, but it was not to be. In the past, if you had Dhoni at the crease in the last over, 95% of the time one would be confident that he would pull it off.

India might give Faiz Fazal and Barinder Sran a chance to make their debut in this game with Jaidev Unadkat and Kedhar Jadhav set to miss out.
