Nine cricket clubs from England will tour the UAE to play against the tongue-twisterly named Delhi Private School Young Talents Cricket Academy Under-13 and Under-15 teams. Gulfnews has more.
"Many club teams from England are keen to play in UAE and we have agreed to host them. Two club teams from Yorkshire and another from London will be here soon. Matches against these teams will provide good exposure for our boys too," said Shehzad Altaf, the chief coach of the DPS Young Talents Academy.
The M23XI Club team from Sussex are currently touring the UAE. The DPS YTA Academy under-13 and under-15 boys bowed to M23 XI at the Delhi Private School ground.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
