India vs Zimbabwe 3rd T20I 2024 Live Score: Pitch Report

Stark difference to the pitches used in the previous games. There is some grass but it is well rolled into the pitch. There are some cracks which signal that it it pretty dry. This might be a good batting surface, but batting would get tricky in the second innings if the sun is out and it will bake the surface. 160 could be a winning total on a track like this.

Shubman Gill | India Captain:

Definitely it feels very good, it was a crucial game for us, the way we started with the bat and ball was good. The wicket was a bit double-paced, the odd ball was gripping and it was not easy to hit the length balls, that's what we discussed with our bowlers. We know that if there is something in the wicket, it will be more with the new ball, and as the ball gets old it's a bit easier to score. Everyone is contributing and that's a good sign.
