Al Nabooda Insurance Brokers, (ANIB), and the Emirates Cricket Board, (ECB), have signed an insurance agreement where ANIB will provide Emirates Cricket’s centrally contracted players with medical insurance coverage during their local and international fixtures. The agreement also sees ANIB named as Official Insurance Supplier.

Together, Emirates Cricket and ANIB have been working diligently to create a unique and comprehensive sports specific medical insurance cover, which includes extensive coverage of possible sport related injuries protecting our players and coaching staff.” “Emirates Cricket has been very selective in which insurance provider we chose to partner with, and we are exceptionally pleased ANIB saw the potential in creating such a unique solution, and stepped up to create an affordable way to ensure our players are fully covered.”

Sukumar Rajagopal, Managing Director of ANIB, said, “we are extremely happy to have been able to provide a reliable solution for ECB’s requirement.
