Default Dismiss Tendulkar, get USD 1000

Hehe.. yes pay your way to glory.. the dubaiwalla way. If it is not working with patriotism, try money.


Offer for UAE bowlers: Dismiss Tendulkar, get USD 1000
19.31 IST 15th July 2004

By IndiaExpress Bureau

If dismissing the world's finest batsman is not an incentive in itself, UAE bowlers have been offered USD 1,000 by their officials if they can get the scalp of batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar in the Asia Cup opener in Dambulla tomorrow.

According to Khurram Khan, captain of the UAE team, an official had promised the amount (Rs 45,000) to the bowler who claimed the prize wicket of Tendulkar, the most successful one-day batsman in the world with over 13,000 runs.

But the UAE captain admitted that money would not be the sole motivation behind looking for the Indian batsman's wicket.

"Of course I am overawed at the prospect of playing against the likes of Tendulkar," Khurram said.

"I don't think anyone would want to take that wicket for money alone. It would be a prize wicket like no other." UAE, whose moment of glory in international cricket came in 1996 when they played in the World Cup in the sub-continent, are looking to take a leaf out of Euro 2004 football winners Greece's book.

Like Greece, they want to make a mark in the six-nation competition.

"If Greece could do it, any one can, we were told, Khurram said.

"That's what sport is all about."
