Mumbai : A 15-member India cricket squad, led by Virat Kohli, left here this morning for Zimbabwe to take on the hosts in a five-game One-Day International series commencing on July 24. The squad is without inspirational captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who has been given a break by the national selectors. The selectors have also rested three pace bowlers Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav along with spinner R Ashwin. India are visiting the African nation after three years. In June 2010, an India team led by Suresh Raina took part in a triangular ODI series in Zimbabwe but came a cropper, failing to reach the final. India made amends when they blanked Zimbabwe 2-0 in the Twenty20 series held immediately after the conclusion of the tri-series final won by Lanka.
