Uthappa, 32, will also be the brand ambassador for the team to be fielded by Tayyarah.com’s side in the tournament which will kick-off from March 19-23 at the historic Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
There will be 16 teams participating in the world’s biggest tennis ball cricket tournament.

Uthappa, who has played 46 ODIs and 13 T20Is for India, said “It will be interesting to see cricket in a new form. I am fortunate that I can bring in some of experience to cheer my squad, albeit from the sidelines. All of us have played tennis ball cricket at sometime in our lives in India. So it would be great to relive that experience.”
