As it was scheduled, amidst political issues, Zimbabwe will be hosting the ICC World Cup Qualifier 2018 with two-time World Cup title holder West Indies to be part of it.

The Men in Blue will be seen in action once again on Tuesday when they face minnows Papua New Guinea (PNG) at the same venue.

India will now play their last league match against Zimbabwe here on Friday.

In the tournament's opening match, India was easily able to thrash Aussie players by 100 runs.
