UPDATE 12.05.2011 - Squad changes - Irfan Ahmed replaces Haseeb Amjad in the Stormers squad; Lei Wang added to the Stormers squad; Peng Zhang added to the Peaks squad.
The Hong Kong Cricket Association is pleased to announce the following squads for the 2011 Elite Player Series (EPS):
The 2011 EPS involves a series of 50-over and Twenty20 matches involving the best cricketers in Hong Kong played at the Mission Road and Kai Tak grounds between 21 May and 19 June 2011.
Announcing the squads for the series, National Coach Charlie Burke, who will also be coaching the Dragons team, said "This year's EPS will be very exciting with two even sides of our best players in Hong Kong as well as our young guns, the Hong Kong U19s, who will not be afraid to take on the big guys as they fight for spots in the national side."
"After a succesful 2010 series where the Peaks, who were led by Najeeb Amar and Waqas Barkat, came out as champions, I think the standard of the games and the inclusion of 50-over games will make this series one to watch and an opportunity for the selectors to see the players in pressure situations."
"A National squad of 18-20 players will be announced after the series and I have no doubt the selectors are looking to build for 2013, therefore expect some changes from last year's National Squad," added Burke.
