THE Zimbabwe camp in the United Arab Emirates entered its third day today with preparations going on smoothly.

Physiotherapist Anesu Mupotaringa expressed satisfaction with the overall health of the 16 players and nine technical and support staff in camp.

The 17th player, Elton Chigumbura, will drive to join camp in Sharjah from Dubai on Wednesday, after the final of the Pakistan Super League in which his team, Quetta Gladiators, will play Islamabad United at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium tomorrow.

Led by head coach Davenell Whatmore, batting consultant Marvan Atapattu, bowling coach Makhaya Ntini and fitness trainer Sean Bell, the Zimbabwe squad trained at the Sharjah Cricket Ground this morning, ahead of a practice match against the local cricket club there tomorrow afternoon.

Zimbabwe will play the Sharjah Cricket Club again on Thursday at the same venue, in a rescheduled programme following the unavailability of the initial opposition, the United Arab Emirates side, following their progression in the ongoing Asia Cup.

There will be two more practice matches for Zimbabwe at the Sharjah Cricket Ground, this time against the West Indies on Saturday and Monday, before departure for India and two more warm-up matches against Bangladesh on the 4th of March and Ireland on the 6th, under the International Cricket Council (ICC) practice schedule for the World Twenty20 tournament.

The two matches are in Dharamshala.

The Zimbabwe touring party will then go to Nagpur, for their ICC World Twenty20 qualifying group B matches against Hong Kong, Scotland and Afghanistan.
