Zimbabwe are currently placed 12th in the 13-team pool, with just three wins in 15 matches.
The last time the ‘Men in Blue’ were in Zimbabwe was when a Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side played three ODIs and as many T20Is in June-July 2016.
India recently finished their tour of England with series victories in T20Is and ODIs.
A young Indian team, under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, will next play a three-match ODI series against West Indies followed by five T20Is that finish on August 7.
Before the series against India, Zimbabwe will host Bangladesh for three T20s from July 30.
