    Hong Kong Sixes

    On November 8th and 9th this year. I was hoping to go but I don't think I will be in South China during that period.

    Anyhow, announced teams so far...

    England
    Dimitri Mascarenhas (capt), Tim Bresnan, Ed Joyce, Darren Maddy, Graham Napier, Jonathan Trott, Graham Wagg.

    South Africa
    Tyron Henderson (capt), Gulam Bodi, Loots Bosman, Alan Kruger, Vernon Philander, Jon-Jon Smuts, Roelof van der Merwe.


    Nice life cricketers have, me thinks they will not be slumming it in Chungking Mansions...

    Kind of annoying this is happening when it is, since I'm heading down to HK for the weekend beforehand for a rugby game or two, and then to see the Bledisloe Cup, especially since I'm kicking myself for missing the Shanghai edition of this a few weeks back; Ian Bothan, Ian Healy, Merv Hughes and Allan Lamb. That said, I think I'm staying at Chungking when we go down...

    Very strong English team. Not one weak player for this level.

    Happy to see Roelof van der Merwe playing for SA. He has an amazing eye and the lack of fielders and short boundaries will really suit his style. His batting will be more valuable than his bowling. Of all the guys Ive played with, this supposed bowler is responsible for me developing a decent slower ball in order to stop fetching from outside the nets.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits

    I think Joyce would be the weak link.

    I'm guessing Joyce & Bosman will be keepers. Also noticed that Chanderpaul, S.Fleming, Langer, Martyn & I.Ul-Haq have been confirmed for the all-star team - they might have some big totals to chase!

    Stephen Fleming, sorry.
    From memory NZ normally do well at this tournament. Here is my shortlist - players' who can bat very aggressively and can do some sort of job with the ball(5 to be omitted but that was too hard for me lol)

    Dewayne Bowden
    Neil Broom
    Ian Butler
    Brendon Diamanti
    Brandon Hiini
    Bruce Martin
    Nathan McCullum
    Peter McGlashan(wk)
    Warren McSkimming
    Greg Morgan
    Bradley Scott
    Ewen Thompson

    England have no spinners, perhaps that is a wise idea

    Didn't Southee, Crowe and Astle play in the last one for us?

    Butler, Hiini and McCullum would be good bets...and a few youngsters i'd imagine, as well as probably an older experienced bloke or two.

    I reckon Thompson is a must. Last years squad, LOL - might be taken a tad more seriously this year

    Despite having a pretty weak/old squad, we did very well. We knocked off the English easily, who had a very very strong squad.

    Spearman was an absolute freak in the tournament.

    Alright for a weekend but I couldn't do more than that at Chungking. The actual rooms are not that bad but the area is the ****ing pits. It's the Causeway and Metro for me but that's a bit tai gui.

    I've never even heard of Steve Wilkins.

    Or Jon-Jon Smuts for that matter. Great name though.
