<![CDATA[KCC Premier League team named for opening match against Pakistan Association]]>Fri, 14 Sep 2012 02:32:16 GMThttp://www.kcccricket.com/premier-league/kcc-premier-league-team-named-for-opening-match-against-pakistan-associationIt is with great pleasure that I can announce the Premier League team for the upcoming match against Pakistan Association at Kowloon Cricket Club on Sunday, 16th September.
The Premier League team is:
Jamie Atkinson (Captain)
Dylan Dearing (Vice Captain)
Imran Arif
Waqas Barkat
Waqar Dawood
Afzaal Haider
Muhammed Khan
Hersh Khatri
Roy Lamsam
Kinchit Shah
Ateeq Ul Rehaman
Ninad Shah (12th Man)
Commenting on the team, Chairman of Selectors Damian Kelleher said:
"The Premier League Selection Panel (PLSP) has painstakingly gone through our playing list and selected a team that is balanced both with the bat and fast and slow bowling options."  He continued "It is fantastic to note that Hong Kong Captain Jamie Atkinson is available for the entire season and will lead the team both with his on field presence and knowledge and his intimidating and attacking stroke play.  Jamie's availability is undoubtedly a huge plus for KCC cricket".
There are two new faces in the Premier League team, promising young batsman Hersh Khatri and fast bowler Imran Arif have been included for the first time.

“Hersh Khatri has been in excellent form in recent weeks. His inclusion is in recognition of his consistently good performances and we anticipate that he can provide steadiness at the top of the order. Imran Arif has just completed a productive season in England and he will provide a strong and reliable bowling option" said Kelleher.
The team will be coached by newly appointed KCC coach Mr Ryan Campbell, who with his extensive coaching experience and knowledge of playing the game at the highest level should help elevate the team to a new level of professionalism and on field performance.
Players should assemble at the KCC, ready for warm ups by no later than 9:30am.
Yours in cricket,
Damian Kelleher
