Hong Kong leave for Singapore today on mission possible - winning back the four-nation Tuanku Ja'afar Trophy. New skipper Stewart Brew will have to watch that his side are not over-confident, the malaise which saw the territory lose out in the past two years, to Singapore and Malaysia respectively. While keeping a weather eye out for over-confidence, Brew is more worried about the lack of match practice. 'We are badly in need of match practice. Most of us have not played since the end of the season,' said Brew, who has taken over the reins of captaincy from Pat Fordham. Although players have had the opportunity to compete in the new summer Eights competition, only half the squad have been involved. In the past two years, the territory's batting has let them down. Brew, Rahul Sharma, Riaz Farcy and Martin Lever will shoulder the batting responsibilities. But the territory's batting runs deeper with wicketkeeper Ray Brewster, Andrew Dartnell, Sada Hussain, Rowan McGregor and Ravi Sujanani all capable. Hong Kong will have no time to settle down, coming up against defending champions Malaysia tomorrow. This will be followed by Thailand on Friday and Singapore on Saturday. The final is set for Sunday. Hopes are high that Hong Kong can regain the title which once was theirs for the taking. But gone are the days when Hong Kong had to do nothing more than just turn up for the competition. Today all the other countries are competitive. The eligibility rules for the tournament may have played a part in the ascendancy of the others. Countries have to field four nationals or citizens in their playing XI. Hong Kong, however, can find no excuse in this. The territory's quota of nationals or citizens are highly competitive and win their place in the squad solely on merit. This year, players like Farcy, Lever, Sujanani and Eddie Tse are all capable of holding their own against any others. While the seniors try to wrest back the title, the Hong Kong juniors too will also be seeking glory. Matches will be played under ICC rules which were in force for the recent World Cup. It was reported in the headline in yesterday's Sports Post that the HKCA is set to take a 30 per cent stake in the Hong Kong Sixes. The HKCA and the ICC are poised to get a 60 per cent equity share with promoters CWI getting the balance of 40 per cent. How the 60 per cent stake will be divided between the HKCA and the ICC has still not been finalised. According to HKCA chairman Peter Slack, the association could end up having more than a 30 per cent share in the equity.
