A SIDE comprising mostly of players who took part in last month's ICC Trophy in Kenya will represent the Kowloon Cricket Club in the traditional season-ending Hancock Shield game against the Hong Kong Cricket Club at HKCC on Sunday. Eight of the KCC team represented Hong Kong in Kenya, the only odd players out being batsman Nigel Stearns, all-rounder Charlie Goonesena and medium-pacer Andrew Foley. But despite having the luxury of being able to draw upon this 'star-studded' line-up, KCC's Captain-of-Cricket, Roger Nissim was still disappointed over the unavailability of Templars' run-machine Rahul Sharma. Sharma is out of town on business. A sad thing as far as KCC are concerned as he had been pencilled in according to Nissim. ''He was an obvious choice for the side. It would have been nice to see him up against Stewart Brew. It is disappointing that he is not available,'' said Nissim. Sharma, playing his first season in Hong Kong, became the first batsman to score a thousand runs in a season - he was followed two hours later into the record books by Brew, playing in another match. Nissim's counterpart at HKCC, Mike Walsh has also been confronted with players being unavailable. Among them were Hong Kong representatives John Garden, Jonathan Orders and Leigh Beaman. ''They will all be out of town. But I'm still confident with the side I have,'' said Walsh. The Hancock Shield, which is up for grabs when the match is played at HKCC (when it is played at KCC in alternate years, the Fincher Shield is awarded), was last won by HKCC. ''It looks nice in our cabinet and we intend to keep it there,'' said Walsh, throwing down the gauntlet. KCC will be captained by Steve Atkinson and his HKCC vis-a-vis will be Brew. KCC: Mark Eames, Pat Fordham, Riaz Farcy, Steve Atkinson (captain), Charlie Goonesena, Nigel Stearns, Ravi Sujanani, Bharat Gohel, Yarman Vachha, Andrew Foley, Paul Cresswell. HKCC: Stewart Brew (captain), Steve Foster, Tim Smart, Bob Stiller, Seamus O'Brien, Mike Peck, Mike Swift, Ben Hall, Adrian Ashman, Matthew Johnson, Tim Davies.
