Match Reports/Notes

Hong Kong vs. Singapore – Match was reduced to 36 overs per side due to rain. Singapore’s targetreduced by 10 runs due to slow over-rate. Sensational collapse by Singapore leaves Hong Kong victors by 6 runs.

Hong Kong vs. Thailand – Match was reduced to 48 overs per side due to wet outfield caused by overnight rain.

Hong Kong vs. Malaysia – Malaysia were awarded the victory in controversial circumstances after it was initially thought the match had ended in a tie. During a recheck of the scores, it was discovered that a leg bye scored in one of the latter overs had not been added to the Malaysians’ total score. Therefore it was deemed that the winning run was scored by the Malaysians in the 49th over and that the final over (though bowled and a wicket taken by Hong Kong without additional runs being scored) was considered irrelevant. A protest by the Hong Kong team over the result was dismissed by the match referee.

Hong Kong vs. Maldives – Alex French’s 203* was scored off 158 balls and included 21 fours and 1 six.

Hong Kong Cricket Sixes
The cricketing world was introduced to the excitement of ‘Sixes’ when the first Hong Kong Cricket Sixes tournament debuted in 1992. The inaurgural event, which was won by Pakistan, was staged at the Kowloon Cricket Club, which hosted the tournament until 1996 when it moved to the Hong Kong International Stadium. The combination of the ‘Asia Crisis’ and the loss of sponsorship resulted in the event being cancelled in 1998. Concerted efforts to resurrect the tournament eventually lead to its successful return to the Kowloon Cricket Club in 2001.
