Hong Kong have just four days in Kuala Lumpur to tinker with their build-up to the ICC Trophy, which begins next week. The squad leave this afternoon, with skipper Pat Fordham none too pleased with the way things have panned out in the past month. 'The build-up has not been as effective as I would have liked. We have not had one session where all the players turned up,' he said. 'We now have four days in Kuala Lumpur before our first match, and I hope it will give us time to get things in order.' In their two warm-up games against the MCC this month, Hong Kong were beaten convincingly. All departments have looked threadbare, especially the bowling. Fordham realises that four days is hardly enough time to turn things around, but is hopeful that the team will be able somehow to find that little bit extra. 'It would have been ideal if we could have got down to KL earlier this week. But as an amateur side, this is the best we can do. I hope things will improve once we are down there as the team can stay focused on cricket, rather than work and other things,' said Fordham. As it is, Fordham will have to wait until Sunday before the entire 16-strong party assembles, with three players - Rahul Sharma, Ravi Sujanani and Justin Strachan - joining late. Hong Kong are scheduled to play two warm-up games against the UAE and the USA before their first match, against Bermuda next Tuesday. 'All the guys are capable cricketers and all we need is to shock them into action,' said Fordham. His target is to reach the quarterfinals, at least. 'We did that last time in Kenya and it is our objective again,' he said.
