The 2011 Hong Kong Sixes tournament will be held from the 28th to 30th October weekend. Australia are current champions. Pakistan were runners up in 2010. Shoaib Malik led the team. Imran Nazir bowled an atrocious last over to deny Pakistan the title from a comfortable winning position. Pakistan have appeared in 7 HK finals with 4 victories, but never won the competition since 2002. Squad to be named yet. England is the most successful team with 5 titles. It will be the 17th time the event is being held. Last year the legendary Indian spinner Anil Kumble featured. Pakistan beat India batting first last year when the two teams clashed on a rainy Saturday. Pakistan’s group consists of India, South Africa and hosts Hong Kong. 12 countries will be participating in the event.
