India will be traveling to play in the five-match T20I series in July which was officially confirmed by BCCI and ZC on February 06. The schedule is set to take place after the completion of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

Talking about the tour BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said, “The BCCI has always played a pioneering role in contributing to the global cricketing community. We understand that it is a period of rebuilding for Zimbabwe, and Zimbabwe Cricket needs our support at this juncture. 

“Our steadfast commitment to touring and supporting fellow member boards aligns with our principle of bringing about a positive transformation within the cricketing landscape. The BCCI will do its best to make bilateral cricket stronger and commercially more viable.

“Our pledge to support Zimbabwe Cricket reflects a shared vision for the growth and prosperity of cricket on the international stage,” he concluded.

On the other hand, ZC Chairman Mr Tavengwa Mukuhlani said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting India for a T20I series in July in what will be our biggest international attraction at home this year. 

“The game of cricket has always immensely benefited from India’s influence and dedication to the sport, and I would like to say a huge thank you to the BCCI for committing to tour Zimbabwe once again.

“The significance and magnitude of this tour cannot be over-emphasized, especially as it is coming at a time we are working round the clock to re-establish ourselves as a force to reckon with at the highest level of the game,” Tavengwa Mukuhlani concluded.

The matches will be played on July 06, 07, 10, 13, and 14th July at the Harare Sport Club.
