Gerald Dros of the Nashua Titans will once again lead the South African team that will take part in the Hong Kong Cricket Sixes Tournament from 22nd to 23rd October, 2005. Dros and his team will hope to fare better this time around than last year when they finished seventh out of eight teams in the tenth anniversary of the tournament. Last year marked the centenary celebrations of the Kowloon Cricket Club.
South Africa has been drawn in Pool 2 and will come up against Pakistan, India and West Indies. Pool 1 is made up of defending champions, England, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka and Australia. The two top teams in each pool qualify for the Cup semi-finals, while the bottom two teams play in the Plate knockout competition.
Adam Bacher is the only member of the squad who has represented South Africa in both Tests and one-day Internationals. Eugene Moleon who has been selected for this tournament for the first time has added another feather to his cap - he has been appointed the new captain of the North West Powerade Dragons, this season. He succeeds Richard Stroh.
Bacher, Ahmed Amla and Tyron Henderson are also first-timers, whereas William Hantam, Goolam Bodi and Dros played in last year's tournament.
The South African squad: Gerald Dros (Nashua Titans), Ahmed Amla (Nashua Dolphins), Adam Bacher (Highveld Lions), Goolam Bodi (Nashua Titans), William Hantam (Nashua Cape Cobras), Tyron Henderson (Mercedes Warriors), Eugene Moleon (Highveld Lions).
