Nominations open for Hong Kong T20 Blitz domestic player draft


Applications are open for Hong Kong domestic players to nominate for the 2017 Hong Kong T20 Blitz draft set to be held on October 26 as a launch event prior to the World Sixes on October 28 and 29.

Players participating in the Elite League are eligible to be picked up by one of the five franchises for the third edition of the event from February 6-11 in 2018.

With six overseas players in each team permitted and five allowed to play in each match, the tournament will offer Hong Kong's domestic players a chance to share a dressing room with some of the world's best T20 players.

Applications must be submitted by October 13 at 5pm 2017 and no domestic players will be permitted to play in the tournament from outside the draft pool.

Hong Kong contracted players will automatically go into the draft, while other National Squad players still must nominate. Players must have a Hong Kong ID card to be eligible to go into the draft.
