The confirmation of this tour follows productive discussions between ZC and the BCCI, aimed at fortifying bilateral ties and fostering collaboration between the two cricketing boards.

Expressing his enthusiasm, ZC Chairman Mr Tavengwa Mukuhlani said: 

"We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting India for a T20I series in July, which will be our biggest international attraction at home this year.

"The game of cricket has always immensely benefited from India’s influence and dedication to the sport, and I would like to say a huge thank you to the BCCI for committing to tour Zimbabwe once again.

"The significance and magnitude of this tour cannot be over-emphasised, especially as we are working round the clock to re-establish ourselves as a force to reckon with at the highest level of the game."

BCCI Honorary Secretary Mr Jay Shah stated: "The BCCI has always played a pioneering role in contributing to the global cricketing community. 

We understand that it is a period of rebuilding for Zimbabwe, and Zimbabwe Cricket needs our support at this juncture. Our steadfast commitment to touring and supporting fellow member boards aligns with our principle of bringing about a positive transformation within the cricketing landscape. 

The BCCI will do its best to make bilateral cricket stronger and commercially more viable. Our pledge to support Zimbabwe Cricket reflects a shared vision for the growth and prosperity of cricket on the international stage."

The last time India toured in Zimbabwe was in August 2022, for 3 One Day Internationals (ODI's) at the Harare Sports Club, which they all swept. 

Fans and cricket enthusiasts can now eagerly mark their calendars, for a fast-paced T20 format will surely be a thrilling and memorable experience.
