    ***Official*** Hong Kong T20 Blitz 2018

    #hype


    Hong Kong Cricket Association

    Franchises up for sale in new Hong Kong T20 Blitz League | Cricbuzz.com

    Hong Kong T20 Blitz expected to attract overseas cricket talent | South China Morning Post

    Hong Kong Cricket Association


    Going to try and be involved in this in some way.

    Really excited to see who these Franchises manage to sign up. I wonder if they'll announce how much each Franchise sells for. Minimum bid is 50K HKD, not including the players fees, kits, coaches (if any), etc.

    I wonder what it'd take for a competition like this to be given official T20 status by the ICC.

    India had the Karnataka Premier League last year. There will be a Chennai league this year and possible a Kolkata league soon. While the Karnataka league did have some terrific players like Uthappa and Nair, it also had the old relics in the form of people like Sunil Joshi.

    Bump.

    Michael Clarke has signed on to play for one of the franchises, and I've already been asked to volunteer on both days of this tournament.

    We've also got 16 year old Nepali spin sensation Sandeep Lamichhane coming over too.

    Current squads can be found here:
    Teams

    Excited to see who else gets signed up. The tournament kicks off in two weeks and should be streamed live for free over the web

    Gotta love some of the press on Clarke's inclusion. Saw one report about this being the start of his comeback with a 'gotta start somewhere' theme. Yeah mate, 10 years ago for an IPL team when they were actually interested in you and you told them to get ****ed...

    Haha. A lot of player play for minor counties in England. That doesn't get any press coverage. This just gets it as it's a 'T20'. News flash to the headline hunters : Cricketers play a bit after retirement

    Yeah I feel that this media coverage is going to give people the wrong idea about this Hong Kong T20 thing. It's not going to be any higher standard than minor counties or local grade cricket, at best. More likely significantly lower standard tbh.

    AWTA. Hopefully they'll be able to get some of the best talent from the NSW U-12 teams to increase the overall standard.

    You jest, but NSW do have some seriously good players who are basically still in nappies. PEWS' boi Arjun Nair, Jason Sangha and arguably Austin Waugh too.

    Even if the names aren't huge (iirc Maddinson said he'd be interested), this is a big step forward for cricket in Hong Kong. If this gets them to continue developing towards being a genuinely good associate nation, then its awesome.
