Hong Kong became famous in cricket circles for hosting the exciting Hong Kong Cricket Sixes tournament, which was first staged at the Kowloon Cricket Club in 1992. The event developed into a major international cricket event over the following years with many test and ODI stars appearing.
The Hong Kong Cricket Sixes is fully sanctioned by the ICC and is the sport's longest-running, best-established and most high-profile sixes tournament.
Players who have taken part over the past 16 years include Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Steve and Mark Waugh, Viv Richards, Andrew Flintoff, Adam Gilchrist and Wasim Akram.
The tournament is organised and promoted by the Hong Kong Cricket Association's commercial arm, China Cricket International Limited.
The HKCA's proceeds from the Sixes are put back into cricket development in Hong Kong.
