Dubai: Former Indian captain Dilip Vengsarkar has started coaching budding cricketers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He launched the six-week training programme at the Insportz Indoor stadium here on Friday by imparting some basic tips to youngsters, who obviously were very excited. Vengsarkar, who is running a successful cricket-coaching academy, in Mumbai, has decided to split the six-week programme into three two-week stints so that his trainees could work and consolidate the techniques and skills imparted to them. Over the years, cricket has become a very popular game in the UAE, especially among Indian, Pakistani and Sri Lankan expatriates. The Dubai cricket authorities are also planning to organise international cricket tournaments in the Emirates, on the lines of the Sharjah championship, to cash in on the game's increasing popularity. Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE also organised an international tournament featuring "B" teams from India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka last year, which attracted large crowds. There are plans to organise more and more such tournaments in Abu Dhabi. UNI
