New Delhi: Former England star batsman Kevin Pietersen will in October launch a cricket academy in Dubai, and will follow it with another academy in India.

"I am going to start a cricket academy in Dubai in October. The venue is not confirmed yet but it will be a state-of-the-art facility. There will be various courses which will be taught and we will train kids from the age of seven to 18," Pietersen, who was sacked from the England team in February, said here on Sunday.

The former England captain said he chose Dubai, which is also the headquarters of the International Cricket Council (ICC), because of the centrality of the emirate.
