The Indian cricket team is preparing to play its third T20 match against Zimbabwe in Harare. In the five-match T20 series, Team India, led by Shubman Gill, recovered spectacularly in the second match after losing the first. Aside from experienced players like Sanju Samson, the Indian team for the third match includes young players like Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dubey.

While the addition of these three has strengthened India's chances against Zimbabwe, team management is also experiencing selection confusion. The most pressing question for management is who to exclude from the third T20 match. Sanju Samson is a wicketkeeper, and his return will almost certainly force Dhruv Jurel out.

Dhruv made his T20 international debut in the first match of the current five-match series, but he could score only 6 runs in this match and he did not bat in the second match. Looking at his ability, he deserves a chance, but Sanju Samson has also been waiting for a long time to establish himself in Team India. After the return of Rishabh Pant, every opportunity is very precious for Samson. The series against Zimbabwe is a big opportunity for Samson to strengthen his claim in the team.

At the same time, Shivam Dubey can replace Sai Sudarshan, who made his debut in the second match. Sai was part of the Indian team only for the first two matches. But Jaiswal does not seem to get a chance. Yashasvi is an opening batsman and playing in his place, Abhishek Sharma scored a century in the second match.

There seems to be no possibility of change in the bowling of the Indian team. Mukesh Kumar and Avesh Khan have bowled well. In the spin department, Washington Sundar and Ravi Bishnoi have kept the batsmen in check. Shivam Dubey can also bowl fast. Apart from this, the captain will also have the option of Riyan Parag and Yashasvi Jaiswal.

India's playing 11 for the third T20 match - Shubman Gill (captain), Abhishek Sharma, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson (wicketkeeper), Riyan Parag, Shivam Dubey, Rinku Singh, Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.
