Cricket's just perfect

When it comes to introducing youngsters to a sport that encapsulates all the requisite physical skills, few games can match cricket. There is hand-eye co-ordination in the form of throwing, catching and hitting a moving target. And then there is the idiosyncratic combination of dance, gymnastics and athletics that is the bowler's delivery action.

Hameed and Imtiaz spur Pakistanis

Despite a stop-start campaign, Sunday League champions Pakistan Association took a huge stride towards defending their title this season when they scored a seven-wicket win over KCC Infidels at Mission Road yesterday.

Jamshaid's heroics can't save Infidels

MOHAMMED Jamshaid came close to being branded an infidel by his community yesterday as he single-handedly took the Kowloon Cricket Club Infidels to within inches of an improbable victory over Pakistan Association in the CMI Sunday League yesterday.

Pakistani run could have come too late

AFTER a fortnight of forgetting the plot, Pakistan Association remembered their lines yesterday with an enthralling 39-run win over Wanderers at the Hong Kong Cricket Club.

Victory, however, might have come too late for their plans to become the first independent side in recent years to break the stranglehold the established order has had over the Connaught Sunday League.

Teacher Cross canes final ball to pass test

SCHOOLTEACHER David Cross can be excused today if he walks into the classroom swinging his arms, from left to right, in an arc reminiscent of a batsman hooking a shot to the deep square-leg boundary.

He has his reasons. For this was the shot he played yesterday to bring to an end a patient 14-year wait by the Vagabonds for a Hong Kong cricket title.

Fond farewells to dreams of cricketing glory

SO Hong Kong are not going to play the West Indies at Calcutta in 1996.

Losing to Holland has given us no chance of making the semi-finals which will be contested by Kenya, Bermuda, the United Arab Emirates and the Dutch.

Silence, then celebration on great day

YIPPEE! What a great day for the boys. It was a top effort beating Denmark in a cliffhanger.

I was dreading writing this article had we lost because it would have read like sour grapes.

You see, it really was a tremendous result because it was achieved against the odds. I said yesterday that perhaps the destiny of the game was in Stewart Brew's hands.

SIX-a-side cricket is played under the same basic rules as traditional 11-a-side cricket but the following regulations apply: Each team consists of only six players, plus one reserve.

A game consists of one innings each side, with an innings restricted to a maximum of five overs.

On a sticky wicket

I REFER to the article headlined ''Customs officials bowl KCC a real 'googly' '' in Owen Hughes' Post Script column (Sunday Morning Post, September 5).

Although initially stumped, I have now found that the report was a little wide of the mark and overpitched insofar as the incident mentioned had no connection with the forthcoming Wharf/Cathay Pacific Cricket Sixes.
