#1
MUMBAI: It’s time now for the super-short format of cricket, no not, Twenty 20 but the HONG KONG Sixes. This is the 15th edition of the tournament and over the years this event has been a huge draw for its brevity largely, and also for the fact that it is recognized by the International Cricket Council. The 2008 Sixes was broadcast to 80 million households worldwide. The 2009 version will see 8 teams vie for top honours, and all the action from the matches can be seen live on TEN SPORTS. Commenting on the action will be an effervescent crew of former star players who form the Ten Sports Commentary team. New Zealand’s Danny Morrison, Australia’s Dean Jones, Pakistan’s Aamir Sohail and Sri Lanka’s Russel Arnold. (Please check the schedule)

In the 2009 version of the Hong Kong Sixes the eight teams are divided into two groups, the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The Northern hemisphere comprises India and her geographical rivals Sri Lanka and Pakistan, alongwith England. And in the Southern Hemisphere, hosts Hong Kong are grouped with New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

Team India will see the likes of former Indian Captain Anil Kumble leading the charge with a host of talented players like the young and flambuoyant Manish Pandey, the 2005 player of the tournament Reetinder Singh Sodhi, Stuart Binny son of Roger Binny, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Sridharan Sriram and Jagadesh Arunkumar.

Defending Champions England would look to repeat their feat of last year and Runners Up Australia, would want supremacy over their historical rivals, no matter what format of the game. All these rivalries will just go to make the event even more dramatic. And six a side cricket never fails to capture the audience, be it spectators at the stadium or television audiences worldwide.
