Without a shadow of doubt, the 56-year old brings in a plethora of experience and skills as he is well versed in this trade. Robin previously coached the Indian U-19 and ‘A’ teams, Hong Kong and even USA to record impressive results.
Moreover, he has been a part of Mumbai Indians’ and Barbados Tridents. Robin also represented India in 1 Test and 136 ODIs from 1989 till 2001. Fans have attached massive hopes from this signing as they want to see UAE becoming a force in the cricketing world. However, it remains to be seen how he fares as the new boss of the UAE cricket.
