Teenage siblings Godiva Li Kai-ling and Li Kai-ming will both represent Hong Kong when cricket makes its debut at the Asian Games in Guangzhou in November. Kai-ming, who at 19 is a year older than his sister, has been included in the 15-strong men's squad that also includes another pair of siblings, the Ahmed brothers, Irfan and Nadeem, who have been a mainstay of the senior side for the past few years. But this is the first time that a brother and sister from a local Chinese family have made it into the senior squads, suggesting that the Hong Kong Cricket Association's long-standing attempts to propagate the game among the community is bearing fruit. 'They have both been picked on pure merit. They have a wonderful work ethic and they are the two keenest cricketers I have seen,' said Hong Kong head coach Charlie Burke. Godiva Li is an all-rounder who bats in the middle order and comes in as first-change bowler with her medium-pacers. She is also in the under-19 women's squad who leave on Friday for the ACC U-19 tournament in Singapore. Kai-ming is a leg-spinner, who caught the eye of the selectors while on tour with the squad in Papua New Guinea. Following the visit by Victorian Premier League side Footscray Edgewater Cricket Club, the selectors yesterday named 15-strong squads for both the men's and women's competition. Burke said the brief visit by the tourists had helped in the build-up to the Asian Games. Hong Kong won one of the 50-over matches, were dominating the other before rain cut it short and, in a sterling effort, also shared the Twenty20 series 1-1. 'It went really well. We had a couple of good wins, but we still have a fair bit of work to do, especially in the Twenty20 format,' Burke said. The shorter version will be the one played at the Asian Games and, while the next month will be spent on tweaking the team's approach, the most pressing issue right now is who will captain the teams. 'There are three people in the running for the men's captaincy - Najeeb Amar, Roy Lamsam and Waqas Barkat - while I believe the women's captaincy is more of a one-horse race. We'll decide next week,' Burke said. Men: Jamie Atkinson, Shakeel Haq, Niaz Ali, Aizaz Khan, Asif Khan, Irfan Ahmed, Nadeem Ahmed, Najeeb Amar, Farooq Saeed, Roy Lamsam, Li Kai-ming, Zafaran Ali, Nicholas Lau Yue-fai, Waqas Barkat, Ilyas Gull.
