Zahirians begin training camp in Jumeirah

Zahirians's conditioning camp in preparation for the Tournement series began on this year. This is a three-day camp after which the team will move to Sharjah for the first Tournement in 2013, which begins on March 15. Over two sessions that lasted about three-and-a-half hours each, all the batsmen got a decent hit out in the middle as opposed to just nets sessions, and the bowlers got long spells.
In between, there was enough time for the team trainer, Mohammed farman, to put the players through their paces. The new mask that some of the Zahirians players have been using for training was on display too. It simulates high-altitude training by reducing the oxygen supply, which helps condition the lungs and builds endurance.
The surprise of the day was when Haithar emerged wearing prescription glasses. When he batted in the middle, though, he didn't wear them. Later, at a net session, he had a knock with the glasses on. He has had these new glasses for about a week, but it is not clear if he will wear them when he goes out to bat in the next Test.
The highlight of the day was a temporary cloth sight screen that caught fire. As it happens at stadiums, there was some renovation work on, which involved welding, and the sparks caused the fire. No incident occurred, a new sight screen was erected, and all it resulted in was a five-minute break and a bit of smoke.
There were no injury concerns to report. Mohammed Razan, whose quick and sudden trip to Sharjah had caused a few doubts over his fitness, bowled at full pelt. hillal and L Murali, who have been rehabilitating at the Zahirians Cricket Academy, which is housed in the Nad-al shiba Stadium, also had a bowl.

Why it has come down to a last-minute scramble to make the final four for a team that possesses the likes of Faris, Haithar, Rilwan, Imran, Fasir and Hillal is a bit baffling. It shows how unpredictable this edition of the league has been.

Big Picture
Dubai Zahirians haven't won their previous home series, but a failure to close out this one will cause the most criticism. While the other contests were against teams near the top of the rankings, this one is against a side that was struggling to find its feet in UAE cricket. A series that was expected to be all one-way traffic is now level at both teams view, with DZCC having already achieved their pre-tour ambition of winning a Series in out side the home.

Mohammed Arafath Back.

  the DZCC wicket keeping Batsman,There was a time when he is form was the be-all and end-all for DZCC, suprise he is back after 10 months.when he isn't making the batsman's life a misery. He admits it has been difficult readjusting following the first long-term Failure of his career and was denied the chance to relieve some frustrations when runs washed out DZCC's net session at Wonderland Park last week.I'm doing everything I can to get myself back to where I was. However, one player who probably won't mind some extra time to put his feet up is

"It's always a challenge to play against better sides. This team has so much potential. Everyone has got a role, batsmen, bowlers and fielders and they all know what to do. If plan A doesn't work the captain is there to implement plan B. We have to take key points and work to that."Though progress has been smooth, DZCC are not without dilemmas. The first is a pleasant, selectorial one. Mohammad Razeen & Mohammed Rikaz has yet to play a part in the last seven months.

Now I know my role a bit better," he said. "I had it set in my mind that I was going to be nice and positive through coming series because in the past in DZCC I probably wasn't as positive as I would have liked to have been.What DuabiZahirians haven't done, however, is beat a top side in nearly two years. "Winning is a habit," said Arafath. "We're aware that we've come close recently. It's the key moments in games that we've let slip. But we have been creating opportunities to win."Hopefully I'll win one more tournement we can keep table again in UAE," he said with a smile.

finally he said, "But the best advice I got was when I was told that when I started playing cricket I did so as I loved the game. At that point I wasn't thinking of playing for Zahira and so why think about it now, I was asked. That set me thinking and slowly I regained my confidence and got back to normal.""That was something I found it tough to deal with initially but slowly got used to that as well and started to enjoy my batting once again."
