Dubai: As India take on the United Arab Emirates at Perth tomorrow in a Pool B World Cup match, the cricket enthusiasts living here do not see this as a battle of loyalties. For most it’s just another World Cup match, while others see this as a proud moment for the local team, which isn’t expected to cause much worries to the Men in Blue.
Television host and entrepreneur Mehirr Nath Chopra says he is very proud of the UAE cricket team’s performance during the tournament so far.”They have played hard and fought well. Very professional and world stage worthy,” he said. Chopra has lived in the UAE for more than a decade. “Safe to say Dubai is my home and the UAE team makes me proud,” he said.
