ALLROUNDER Luke Jongwe suffered a head injury in Zimbabwe’s first practice match at the Sharjah Cricket Ground ahead of the World T20 in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday.

While attempting a return catch, Jongwe missed the ball and it hit him above the right eye.

He was taken by ambulance to hospital where an x-ray revealed no damage.

However, as a precautionary measure, he also underwent a magnetic resonance imaging scan, was put on a drip and hospitalised for observation.

On the field, Zimbabwe made 6-185, with the in-form Hamilton Masakadza falling a run shy of a half-century and Vusumuzi Sibanda and Richmond Mutumbami chipping in with 35 and 30 respectively.

Imran Haider was the pick of the Sharjah Cricket Club bowlers, claiming a player-of-the-match winning five wickets for 21 runs in four overs.

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.
