DUBAI - Former England fast bowler Paul Franks has been named UAE's assistant coach on loan from Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, ahead of the World Cup. Franks will support the head coach Aaqib Javed, and mainly take responsibility for the team's fielding preparations. "It took me a while to get my head around being approached by the Emirates Cricket Board, that was flattering enough in itself, and this is a huge opportunity for me at a very early stage in my coaching development," Franks said.
