KL Rahul will be leading the Indian side after Shikhar Dhawan was named the captain after the initial squad was announced. The squad went through a few changes thereafter and Rahul was named as the skipper with Dhawan as his deputy. The Indian skipper is making a comeback to cricket after a gap of over six months. Rahul Tripathi is also a part of the squad. He is likely to make his debut in the series after missing out on the same in the series against Ireland.
Zimbabwe will be led by Regis Chakabva who led the side in the series against Bangladesh. They won both the series by 2-1 margins.

In the ODI series, Zimbabwe won the first two matches by 5 wickets but lost the final ODI by 105 runs.
