Ahead of the team's departure on Tuesday, Dhoni, while addressing the press here, said India cannot afford to be complacent and the African minnows can pose a challenge for his rookie side.

"Zimbabwe can be challenging at times, our challenge will be slot placing in the batting order. It will be a different experience, will be playing with many players for the first time," Dhoni said here.

India will take on the hosts in three One-Day Internationals (ODI) and as many Twenty20 Internationals at the Harare Sports Club with the first match to be played on June 11.

Dhoni, who has worked with quite a number of coaches during his decade-long career, on BCCI's search for new coach for Team India said the candidate must understand the country's sporting culture.

The board last week advertised for the post of head coach and set June 10 as the deadline for receiving
applications.
