After fours years of inactivity, Hong Kong is all set to grasp itself into the mood of powerful cricket, as it gets set to host the Hong Kong World Sixes 2017 at the Kowloon Cricket Club in Jordan on Saturday and Sunday. The live cricket streaming of the matches will be available on Facebook and YouTube channel of Cricket Hong Kong (CHK). South Africa would be the defending champions of the tournament, while Pakistan and England have been the most successful teams in the tournament, having won five titles each. The interesting part of the tournament is that it is played with rubber deuce ball and on sunthetic pitches. Hong Kong World Sixes 2017: Test Nations confirm participation

The tournament is organised by Cricket Hong Kong, it is sanctioned by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The tournament is designed for television viewing, with rules and a venue that encourage aggressive batting and high scoring. Because every player (except the wicket-keeper) is required to bowl one over, the format suits all-rounders. In 2013, the Hong Kong Cricket Association’s applications for MEF contributions (at first HK$10 million then revised to HK$5 million) were turned down, leaving it with a budget of HK$1 million from the M-Mark scheme to organise the tournament. The association felt that a further HK$500,000 to HK$1 million would be needed to organise the tournament and cancelled it after not securing private sponsorship, as reported by Wikipedia.
