Hong Kong Cricket Association Seeking To Expand Scope Of Hong Kong Sixes
The Hong Kong Cricket Association is "looking to expand the scope of next year's Hong Kong Sixes to meet requirements set by the government's Mega Events Fund," according to Alvin Sallay of the SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST. This year's Sixes, "initially scheduled for the end of this month, was cancelled" after organizers could not convince the MEF to "finance the tournament and failed to drum up corporate support in the form of a title sponsor." HKCA Chair Mike Walsh said that a "bigger and bolder push will be made for next year's edition." Walsh: "We are going back to the Mega Events Fund with a revised and much bigger proposal for next year, where we propose a tournament of [ICC] associate countries on the Thursday and Friday before the main event on the weekend" (SCMP, 10/7).
