Hong Kong

Martyn and Fleming in Hong Kong Sixes

Will Luke

Damien Martyn and Stephen Fleming will both play in November's annual Hong Kong Sixes.

"I'm thrilled to be taking part," said Martyn. "Hong Kong is a wonderful city to visit and the Kowloon Cricket Club is a fantastic venue for such an exciting tournament. I'm looking forward to teaming up with Stephen and the other members of the All-Stars for what promises to be two days of fast and furious action.

"The Hong Kong event is, without doubt, the best-run and most high-profile sixes tournament in the world and, hopefully, we can put on a great show for the fans."

In the past Kenya has also been invited to the SIxes tournament in Hong Kong. What happened this time around? Recently, South Africa were dilly-dallying until cricinfo wrote a strong article that gave South Africa something to think about, and agreed to give two ODIs. Denmark cannot raise players to face Kenya in scheduled July friendly, and MCC were rather sarcastic in saying that MCC cannot raise a good enough team to face Kenya. True, Kenya has been doing badly and cannot even compete A sides of Test Playing Nations, but how can they improve without playing good oppositions?

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
