Rod Marsh praised students at Jumeirah English Speaking School (Jess) after the Australian cricket legend put them through their paces.
Marsh, who collected a then-world record of 355 dismissals during his 14-year career, visited Jess in his capacity as Director of Coaching at the ICC Global Cricket Academy.
"The students showed an overwhelming interest and enthusiasm for the game and responded extremely well to the training," Marsh said.
"Our training sessions are designed in such a way that students improve their knowledge of the game and acquire new skills in a fun and interactive environment."
The academy plans to provide coaching at schools throughout the Emirates.
