Laxman acted as the head coach during India’s tour of Ireland in Dravid’s absence followed by one T20I match against England in Southampton and was flanked by Bahutle and Sitanshu Kotak. This will be Kanitkar’s first international assignment in a coaching capacity with the senior team but he has a wealth of experience as he was the head coach of the U19 World Cup-winning Indian team earlier this year.

India will play three ODIs between 18 to 22 August against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club, which will be part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.

India are currently 7th on the table with 79 points in 12 games while Zimbabwe are 13th with only 35 points from 15 games.
