Inzamam signs up for Hong Kong Sixes

Inzamam-ul-Haq is the latest big name to sign up for the Hong Kong Sixes tournament. Inzamam, the former Pakistan captain, has confirmed he will take part in the annual showpiece on November 8-9.

Inzamam, 38, will appear alongside Australia's Damien Martyn and ex-New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming in the All-Stars team. "I'm delighted to be taking part in the Hong Kong Cricket Sixes and I'm looking forward to what promises to be a great weekend," Inzamam said.

"As far as cricketers are concerned, the Hong Kong event is without doubt the premier sixes tournament in world cricket and the one we all want to be involved in."

Last year's tournament featured such luminaries as Shane Warne, Brian Lara, Glenn McGrath and Anil Kumble. The lucrative new Sixes World Series was unveiled last month. The tournament features all nine Test-playing nations, with US$ 1 million going to the winners. The first leg is in Singapore in July.
