The gentlemen of Jumeirah
It's referred to as a 'Gentleman's game' and these gentlemen were out in hordes last Friday. There must have been at least about 100 young Asian gentlemen playing several games of cricket simultaneously in this small patch along the Wasel Road.
Its no surprise that cricket is a popular sport in Dubai. The top 10 cricketing nations (except may be the Windies) also make up for the largest group of expats. The international headquarters of cricket's governing body are also located in Dubai!
