Crick­eters in the UAE will be able to pick the brains of fast bowler Jhu­lan Goswami, a mem­ber of India’s women’s team, when she trav­els to Dubai later this month for a three day mas­ter­class clinic.

Goswami will join India’s head coach Tushar Arothe and pass on their ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge to bud­ding crick­eters at G Force Cricket Academy be­tween Oc­to­ber 27-29.

The 34-year-old has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence hav­ing been a dom­i­nant force for her coun­try for more than 15 years. She has played in more than 200 in­ter­na­tion­als in all for­mats and was part of the India team to have reached the World Cup fi­nal in Eng­land ear­lier this year.

To date, she is the lead­ing wick­et­taker in ODIs with 195 scalps, and has taken 40 wick­ets in her 10 Tests so far.

For Arothe, 51, he has been in­te­gral to India’s rise in the world game, with the team now sit­ting fourth in the ICC Women’s Team rank­ings.

Gopal Jas­apara, head coach of G Force Academy, is de­lighted the pair will visit the coun­try.

“It’s a very proud mo­ment for us” he said, “Goswami is some­one who has played a lot of cricket for more than 15 years and has con­sis­tently taken wick­ets at the high­est level. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for the boys and girls to learn from her and Arothe when they’re in Dubai.”

The clinic will in­volve both prac­ti­cal and the­ory.
