A tempting offer

DAMBULLA, JULY 15. If dismissing the world's finest batsman is not an incentive in itself, UAE bowlers have been offered $ 1,000 by their officials if they can get the scalp of batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar in the Asia Cup opener here on Friday.

According to Khurram Khan, captain of the UAE team, an official had promised the amount (Rs. 45,000) to the bowler who claimed the prize wicket of Tendulkar. But the UAE captain admitted that money would not be the sole motivation behind looking for the Indian batsman's wicket.

``I don't think anyone would want to take that wicket for money alone. It would be a prize wicket like no other," Khurram said.— PTI
