Hong Kong Super Sixes

The Hong Kong Cricket Sixes is an annual international cricket tournament which has been held at the Kowloon Cricket Club in Hong Kong since 1992. The Super Sixes competition comprises between eight and twelve teams.

The Hong Kong Cricket Sixes tournament is designed for television viewing, with rules and a venue that encourage aggressive batting and high scoring.

The games are played between two teams of six players, and each game consists of a maximum of five overs bowled by each side. Because every player (except the wicket-keeper) is required to bowl one over, the format suits all-rounders. If five wickets fall before 5 overs are completed, the last remaining batsman bats on with the fifth batsman acting as a runner. Batsmen retire not out on reaching 31 runs.
