Deepak Chahar on his comeback: “It was a long vacation for me. Now fully fit and back. Tough competition in the Indian team and it has been high since I started playing. If I get an opportunity, I can do the job with the new ball and bat in the lower order.”

India despite missing their big players would start favorites against an improved Zimbabwean side. India is touring the African nation after six-long years.

Looks like a good toss to win for Rahul.
