Fans can watch the India vs. Zimbabwe cricket match live online and see India’s last match before sailing on to the quarterfinals of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
Despite coming into the tournament on a down note, having faltered in a Test series against Australia and then going winless in the Tri Series against Australia and England, India has been a perfect five-for-five so far this tournament.
The latest win over Ireland secured the top spot in Pool B and a place in the quarterfinals, but India still has one more group match to go. The team takes on Zimbabwe on Saturday, with a start at 2 p.m. local time (1 a.m. GMT).
Fans who watch the India vs. Zimbabwe match live online will see if India can continue its surprise run. The team kicked off the tournament with a strong win over Pakistan and followed with a thorough beating of Pool B favorite South Africa.
The win over Ireland helped Indian captain MS Dhoni become the most successful World Cup captain in the team’s history. Dhoni now has 12 victories in the game’s biggest tournament, beating Kapil Dev’s total of 11.
India is getting production from many places. Shikhar Dhawan has scored 333 runs this Word Cup, the second-most of any batsman this year. He has scored eight hundreds since 2013, the fourth most by any batsman.
Fans who watch the India vs. Zimbabwe cricket math live online will see an Indian team looking to stay on top of their game. Though India has already solidified the top spot in their group and Zimbabwe is near the bottom of Pool B with one win and four losses, India is looking to maintain the momentum of a perfect start to the 2015 ICC World Cup.
It’s not likely that India will be taking its foot off the gas. Dhoni has kept the lineup largely intact, and said they will only rest players against Zimbabwe if there’s a medical reason for it.
“We need the physio’s input in this matter,” Dhoni said following the win over Ireland, reports the Times of India. “If the physio feels any player is in danger of breaking down, we will rest him in that situation. Otherwise, if everyone is fit and available for selection, we’ll field the best XI. Because there are already long breaks between matches — that much rest should be adequate. If there is no risk of injury, we will then continue to field our best eleven.”
