Dubai: The registration process for individuals looking to take over as coaches and to fill allied positions during the the Masters Champions League cricket tournament has begun.
More than three months after the tournament was introduced in the presence of the legends like Adam Gilchrist and Brian Lara, the MCL unveiled the third stage of the venture.
More than 260 players had earlier registered themselves for auction through the official website. The registered players became a part of the league with other champion cricketers, Jacques Kallis, Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, in the overall tournament roster.
Not only cricketers from the Test-playing world, even cricketers from Associate member countries like former United Arab Emirates (UAE) captain Khurram Khan have registered themselves for the inaugural player auction.
With registration on those affiliated to the Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) will be informed by email for them to enrol for the positions. The top positions also include head coach, batting coach, bowling coach, fielding coach, physio, trainer and masseur.
All the registered names for support staff will be submitted to the governing council of MCL and to the six franchise owners as a bank to select the rightful candidates from, the MCL organisers said in a statement.
Zarah Shah, CEO, MCL said: "This is an exciting phase of the tournament because there are a number of opportunities for interested coaches to be part of this event. All the names will go into a pool for the governing council to vet and thereafter for the franchises to dip in to."
The final date for registrations is marked for October 18.
