IND vs ZIM Match Prediction - Nov 06, 2022

India has huffed and puffed its way to a strong position in the T20 World Cup 2022 edition and is now likely to qualify for the semi-final. of course, it still has to win its next match against Zimbabwe. All the best cricket betting sites are offering extremely short odds on India to win this match. This means they are the overwhelming favorites. 

Zimbabwe may have something to say about that, though. Sikandar Raza has been one of the most influential players in T20 cricket this year and also helped his team win against Pakistan. Can he now help Zimbabwe beat the mighty Indians?

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs Zimbabwe T20 World Cup 2022. The match will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on the 6th of November 2022.

IND vs ZIM Team Previews


India has won three out of its four matches so far but only its win against the Netherlands has been convincing. Virat Kohli conjured up a miracle against Pakistan and rain helped India escape a sticky situation against Bangladesh. Things could have gone very differently and that shows that India is still not playing at its best. 

We still think that India has enough batting firepower and class in its lineup to get the better of Zimbabwe's bowling attack. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are the two big names but the likes of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have played a few decent innings as well. 

India may need to consider whether Dinesh Karthik has done enough to keep his place in the lineup, though. Rishab Pant is waiting in the wings and may still end up playing a big role. 

Hardik Pandya, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Shami, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have all had a good T20 World Cup 2022 so far. The role of the spinners has been a bit lesser than expected but Ashwin and Axar may still both end up playing. 

India Playing 11

Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, V Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, RR Pant, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh.


Zimbabwe would have been very disappointed at losing its previous match to the Netherlands. After beating Pakistan, Zimbabwe's fans would have expected more against the Netherlands. However, another batting collapse cost them heavily. 

Apart from Sikandar Raza. the rest of the Zimbabwe batting has not been good enough. Sean Williams and Craig Ervine have the experience but at this late stage in their careers, they are not the most consistent. We don't think the Zimbabwe batting lineup is good enough to challenge India. 

Can Zimbabwe pull off a stirring bowling performance against India as it did against Pakistan? Melbourne should offer it some bounce so it can follow the back of the length plan again but India's batters are better against the short ball.

Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava are the two bowlers that could make some early inroads and give Zimbabwe a sniff but if that does not happen, the rest of the bowling could really go for a lot of runs.

Pitch and Conditions

The rain seems to have finally left Melbourne and the forecast for this match is excellent. Bright sunshine and pleasant temperatures lie in store. The pitch has been fast and bouncy so far and actually helped the seamers. The large square boundaries are hard to clear but the straight boundaries can be targetted. 

A score of around 160-170 is a good one at this venue. 

IND vs ZIM Betting Tips

We are going to back India to win. This is a potentially tricky match because of the situation but if you look at the two teams independently, there is really no reason why Zimbabwe should even threaten India. Looking at the kind of form we have seen from the two sides, we think India is the team to back.

Bet on India to win.
