Abu Dhabi, March 16: The Wall is apparently still coveted property. Indeed, Rahul Dravid is about to add to his English county circuit credentials as he has been included in the MCC side to play County Champions Nottinghamshire in Abu Dhabi. Dravid will be joined by England wicketkeeper Steven Davies for the four-day engagement and the side will be led by former Australia opener Chris Rogers.

Other notable inclusions for the four-day game at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium which, as in 2010, will be played under floodlights using a pink ball, are the former England fast bowler Simon Jones and Afghanistan pair of Hamid Hassan and Mohammad Nabi who are former MCC Young Cricketers.

Sourav Ganguly will replace Dravid, who is also part of MCC's world cricket committee, for a Twenty20 event which follows the four-day match and also features Nottinghamshire, Durham and a Fly Emirates XI.
