High-flying Pakistan will arrive today to continue their treasure hunt. They are eyeing the booty on offer at this weekend's Cathay Pacific/Standard Chartered Hong Kong Sixes in the hopes of adding it to the generous purse won in Sharjah last Sunday when they beat Sri Lanka by five wickets in a triangular tournament final. With the coffers of the Pakistan Cricket Board badly depleted due to the cancellation of this month's tour by New Zealand and the decision by India not to tour in January - the PCB estimates losses at US$25 million - every cent counts. Even the winner's purse of US$80,000 which will be up for grabs at the Kowloon Cricket Club on Sunday. Five of the squad, including Wasim Akram and Shahid Afridi, who arrive today, played in the triumph over Sri Lanka in Sharjah. That effort resulted in the PCB banking US$120,000. Another US$80,000 would be most welcome, especially as future tours to Pakistan are in serious doubt in the wake of the September 11 attacks. The West Indies are due in Pakistan in January for three Tests and three one-day internationals. Australia are to tour Pakistan from September. 'It's unfortunate that Pakistan cricket is suffering, but you can't blame any team for having reservations on security because Pakistan is declared a war zone,' former Pakistan captain turned politician Imran Khan said recently. Thus, for the moment, the PCB has to ensure that they make do with whatever opportunity arises to earn revenues. Seen in this light, the Hong Kong Sixes have taken on added significance for Pakistan. Fresh from their desert win over Sri Lanka, the Pakistanis start as clear favourites. And Hong Kong Cricket Association (HKCA) officials are delighted that all the right incentives are there for Pakistan to do well. 'They are the form team of the tournament. Obviously, they are the side to beat,' said HKCA chairman Mike Walsh yesterday. 'It will take a very good side to beat them. But I'm sure sides like India, England and Sri Lanka will not be overawed by the Pakistanis. It makes for a very good tournament.' India, who along with Pakistan were installed as the two seeds in the eight-team tournament, have made a few changes to their original squad. Dropping out are Ajit Agarkar, who is on Test duty in South Africa, Reetinder Singh Sodhi (leg injury) and Yuvraj Singh (Ranji Trophy duty). The trio have been replaced by Debasish Mohanty, Nikhil Chopra and Mohammed Kaif. England have also announced that Dougie Brown will replace Richard Johnson in their squad. Johnson has been called up to tour India after Andy Caddick withdrew due to safety concerns. Brown, a 32-year-old born in Scotland, is a right-hand bat and right-arm fast-medium bowler. Pakistan have been drawn with England, Australia and the United Arab Emirates, while the other group comprises India, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Hong Kong. The top two teams in each group will advance to the Cup semi-finals, while the bottom two go into the Plate. Meanwhile, organisers revealed that tickets were still available. 'They will be available at the door but once they are sold out, no one will be let in,' said Walsh. Tickets are priced at $450 for adults and $250 for children under 15.
