Chasing, the hosts managed 4-168 runs in their allotted 20 overs, leaving Zimbabwe winners by 17 runs.

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

Zimbabwe will play two more practice matches for Zimbabwe at the same venue, against the West Indies on Saturday and Monday, before departure for India and two more warm-up matches against Bangladesh on March 4 and Ireland on March 6 in Dharamshala, under the International Cricket Council (ICC) practice schedule for the World Twenty20 tournament.

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