Players from all teams will be looking to impress the selectors and National Coach Charlie Burke as they push for places in the 2010-11 Hong Kong National squad. Players from that squad will be selected to represent Hong Kong at the Asian Games in November as well as other tournaments in 2010-11.
The top performing players in the series will also be looking to seal the Player of the Series with another match winning performance. Tabarak Dar currently leads the table with 5 points with Nineltha closely following behind on 4 points. Hong Kong Captain Najeeb Amar, Peter Wooden and Anas Khan are all hot on their tails with 3 points each, while Imran Muhammad, Nasir Hameed and Babar Hayat are still in contention with 2 points.
As an added treat for spectators, former Australian ODI player and ICL T20 star Ryan Campbell will play with the Stormers team in the 3rd/4th play-off match. The former West Australian player is in Hong Kong to help with Hong Kong's preparations for the Asian Games and the ACC Under-19 Women's Championships.
