Sponsor: Our coverage of the 2012 Hong Kong Cricket Sixes was sponsored by the Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel. Just 28 minutes from downtown Hong Kong and conveniently located near the airport, AsiaWorld-Expo and Hong Kong Disneyland, the 5-star luxury Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel is the ideal and affordable choice for MICE, business and leisure travelers.

This weekend (27 and 28 October 2012), teams from 8 different countries will battle it out to determine who will become the 2012 champions of the Karp Group Hong Kong Cricket Sixes.

 Teams from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, England, Netherlands, Hong Kong, and Australia have all made the trip to this vibrant sporting-loving city, for what promises to be a fun packed and exhilarating weekend of Sixes Cricket.

On arrival at the Hong Kong International Airport, Pakistan team captain, Kamran Akmal, shared his excitement at the upcoming competition saying, It is my first time in Hong Kong and I am really excited about the Sixes. Some of the guys have played here before for several years and they keep telling me what a great tournament this is. As defending champions I hope Pakistan can continue our good run, play good cricket and win once again. We have some young players like Tanveer Ahmed and Junaid Khan and they will be keen to impress everyone on their first visit here. It is only five overs so there are no easy games and everyone can win. We must be professional and play our best at all times.

England, last years Cup runners-up, also arrived in Hong Kong on Thursday. England Captain Joshua Cobb, said, It is good to be back in Hong Kong. I didn't play much last year but I am excited to be captaining the side this year and hopefully we can go one better and win the tournament. We have a young and hungry team this year. They all have some first class experience and will be looking to play well, enjoy themselves and hopefully win. Twenty 20 will certainly help us in this format but there are a lot of good players here, which is good for the tournament and good experience for our players to play against.
