India vs Zimbabwe 2016 ODI and T20 Series Live!

Watch India vs Zimbabwe Cricket Live Streaming
Last two tours to Zimbabwe resulted in India's favour with a score line of 5-0 and 3-0. Will it be a similar score line this time? Seems yes, because it is not only the second string young guns but also MS Dhoni who would be travelling to Zimbabwe for cricket. After 11 long years, Dhoni will play a cricket series in Zimbabwe. Watch India vs Zimbabwe live streaming on Ten Sports official website and live telecast on Ten 2 HD channel.

India will play three ODI and three T20 matches as mentioned below:

1st ODI on 11th June, 2nd ODI on 13th June, 3rd ODI on 15th June
1st T20 on 18th June, 2nd T20 on 20th June and 3rd T20I on 22nd June

India is lined up with lot of youngsters who would be roaring to go out and showcase their skills. Sans Dhoni the team is relatively inexperienced but good enough to register big wins in Zimbabwe. Most of them have played well in the IPL season and now they would snatch this opportunity to play for India with both hands.

Sanjay Bangar will be the coach for this tour. He believes he has got a very good squad to experiment with. Infact the squad is full of talent, it would be had to pick the final XI for a particular match. He is pretty confident the team will outplay Zimbabwe in all the matches.

MS Dhoni hasn't tasted too much of success in recent past. Asia Cup was a big win and three T20 matches win in Australia were worth watching. But the team couldn't go beyond semi finals of ODI and T20 world cups. Even that should be considered a decent show, but there are a lot of expectations from MS Dhoni. He has won all possible trophies in his regime so fans expect a lot more from him.

Kohli is already the captain of test side and there has been pressure on Dhoni to handover limited over captaincy to him. Dhoni has left the decision on BCCI. He will play ODI and T20 matches whereas he would rest when India would be busy playing lot many test matches in 2016-17. Australia, England and New Zealand are scheduled to visit India and hopefully Kohli would clear this test and win those series.

Head to head India has dominated over Zimbabwe. So there is no logic looking at the stats. While India looks very strong on paper, fans would expect good amount of resistance from Zimbabwean team. This would result in some good tight matches.

The ICC T20 World Cup 2016 has got a grand start with the opening match between India and New Zealand. There are some really big and exciting matches to follow throughout the T20 World Cup.

Team India play the hosts and hence they have an upper hand. They didn't click well against New Zealand in the opening match and now they have a daunting task ahead. India is placed in a group that is considered comparatively difficult. The group includes other teams like New Zealand, Australia, Pakistan and Bangladesh. 

The other group includes South Africa, England, West Indies, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

Although India is in a great form and considered as the top favourite side to lift the trophy, T20 cricket provides a lot of uncertainties. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are highly unpredicatble. They can also exploit the sub-continent conditions very well. Same goes with Bangladesh. They are at the top of their form. They defeated the likes of Pakistan and Sri Lanka to reach the Asia Cup finals.

New Zealand are a strong T20 outfit. The team is lead by Kane Williamson who looks pumped up in the field. Corey Anderson, Grant Elliott, Martin Guptill and other such players make the batting line up strong. They have a good bowling attack too.

Australia would always be the strongest, simply because they always hit the right combination. This time, probably spin would be a concern for them. Otherwise they have a relatively stronger team that can lift the T20 world cup for the first time ever.

South Africa too has a very strong team and could be considered as one of the top three favourites. They have powerful strikers of the ball and also a good pace battery.

West Indies squad suffered a lot of injury issues. A mix of experienced campaigners and some young guns make them underdogs. They give their best in the T20 format and have won the title in 2012. If someone like Chris Gayle gets going, he is literally unstoppable.

England led by Morgan looks a better outfit in the shortest version of the game. A good amalgamation of batsmen and bowlers make them a strong team in the winning contention.

Well, this is all about the teams. But as we keep saying, cricket can come up with surprises. While India have the better chances, other teams would equally fancy their chances in this T20 event. Enjoy the action live on HotStar.

Watch Ind vs Pak Cricket Match Live T20 Streaming
Irrespective of the situation in the points table, India vs Pakistan match is always the most viewed in any tournament. Indian team finds itself in a pressure situation with a big loss against New Zealand in the opening match. Whereas Pakistan has registered an emphatic win over Bangladesh in their first match. Both the teams would certainly be under pressure in this high voltage match at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Pakistan would be slightly relieved with a win under their belt. Watch India vs Pakistan live streaming and score on HotStar live cricket mobile app. Enjoy India vs Pakistan live match telecast on Star Sports HD and DoorDarshan (DD National Sports). Telecast will be available with live Hindi and English commentary.

The Indians fans, team or think tank would have hardly envisaged this scenario where the team already finds itself in trouble after just one loss. The ideal belief was in-form Indian team would get a flying start and they would continue their winning  momentum till the knock out. Whatever it may be, but this twist has added an extra flavour to the course of T20 World Cup 2016. New Zealand have went on to register their second win. Good part is their two wins came against strong teams like India and Australia.

While Pakistan always finds it difficult to beat India in an ICC event, this time they would be a bit relaxed with a win under their belt. Of course they would love to win today and march ahead with more strength towards the knock outs. But a win in the last match adds to the confidence of the team.

India as a team has been in a great form in the T20 format. Beating Australia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the recently concluded matches had termed them as one of the top three favourites for the ICC T20 World Cup 2016. MS Dhoni and his men have to overcome the loss they faced at the tricky Nagpur track. Anyhow Dhoni and company is well known to bounce back hard. If the likes of Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Bumrah, Pandya click, they can register a win over the arch-rivals.

Many more exciting matches to come after this. We expect a lot of shuffle in the points tally after this.

While the warm ups and the qualifier matches are going on, we are just two days away from the Super 10 round to kick off. India take on New Zealand in the opening match. A tough one for both the teams. India is riding high on confidence with a great form but they have always found it difficult to beat New Zealand in the T20 cricket. On the other hand, New Zealand are visitors this time and India play the hosts. So not an easy one for New Zealand also.

16 September 2007 at Johannesburg - New Zealand won by 10 runs
25 February 2009 at Christchurch - New Zealand won by 7 wickets
27 February 2009 at Wellington - New Zealand won by 5 wickets
8 September 2012 at Vizag - No result due to rain
11 September 2012 at Chennai - New Zealand won by 1 run

Will India win their first T20 match against New Zealand at Nagpur? Cricket fans here in India strongly hope that India will open their T20 World Cup 2016 account with a win. Against a team that they have never defeated in the T20 cricket format.India has an equally strong batting line up and fans might expect a big one in the series opener from Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma is well known to hit big scores in the opening matches. Will he be able to score big against New Zealand?
These two teams belong to the tougher group where the other teams are Australia, Pakistan and team that would qualify from Group A. Most probably the team could be Bangladesh or Oman. 

Indian team has won most of the last few matches they have played since the Australian tour. The recent loss came against South Africa in the warm up game. South Africa scored 196 and India almost chased it down. The hosts scored 193 and lost by just three runs. That shows how strong the Indian team has been in last three months.

Many more exciting matches to follow! Don't miss even an second out of this enthralling ICC World Twenty20 fixture. Watch T20 world cup 2016 live streaming and scores on HotStar!

Watch Bangladesh vs Netherlands and Oman vs Ireland Live Streaming!

The T20 world cup 2016 has kicked off. While we have certain interesting warm up matches lined up since 10th March, there are certain teams that are battling it out in the qualifier round to make a place in the T20 world cup fixtures. Today's fixtures from the qualifier round - Bangladesh vs Netherlands and Ireland vs Oman. Watch ICC T20 world cup 2016 live streaming and score on HotStar. Live telecast will be available on Star Sports HD TV channels in India.

Bangladesh have emerged as a real good team in last few years. Their progress as an International team was really slow and questioned. But since the time they reached some knock out stages of ICC events, they weren't taken lightly. Adding to it, they defeated Pakistan, India and South Africa in ODI series back home. Recently they reached the finals of Asia Cup 2016. They have a point to prove and they may fancy their chances of making it again to the knock out stage. They will face Netherlands in their first match of T20 World Cup 2016.

Netherlands too are known to create upsets. How can one forget their win over England in 2009 and a repeat in the last edition of T20 world cup. Bangladesh may look a better outfit but Netherlands can turn tables on them.

The second match would be played between Ireland and Oman. Ireland is another contender well known for upsets. Not to far in history, they defeated West Indies in the ICC World cup 2015. Likes of Stirling, Boyd Ranking, Kevin O'Brien and William Porterfield make Ireland very strong in the associates and minnows. Sunil Joshi, retired Indian spinner will play the role of an specialist coach for Ireland.

Oman did a good job to reach the qualifiers of Asia Cup 2016. They couldn't manage to be the best of that lot and failed to qualify for the Asia Cup. They got another opportunity to try their best and prove a point in the T20 world cricket.
