FairBreak Global Invitational 2023: Here Is All You Need To Know

The Fairbreak Global Invitational 2023 T20 tournament is all set to take place in Hong Kong for the second time on April 3. Thirteen players from Hong Kong will participate in some capacity in the event which starts there on Monday and will run for straight two weeks.

The six-team event will have around 90 players from 36 different nations, which will make it stand out from previous editions. Due to travel limitations caused by the pandemic in Hong Kong, the first season of the FairBreak Global Invitational was held in Dubai in 2021.

The tournament’s third iteration will take place this year. According to a deal between Fairbreak Global and USA Cricket, the event will occur in Houston, Texas, from September 15 to September 30.

On April 3, the Falcons and Tornadoes will square off in the opening game of the Hong Kong edition of the Fairbreak Global Invitational 2023, at the Kowloon Cricket Club.

Two of the city’s representative teams, Alison Siu and Pull To might make their T20 tournament debuts with captain Kary Chan and players like Ruchi Venkatesh, Yasmin Daswani and Mariko Hill.

Siu will be joined by Shanzeen Shahzad in the revamped Warriors team, whereas To will begin her FairBreak career alongside Chan in the South Coast Sapphires.

In the K-Man Falcons, Hill and Marina Lamplough will team up, and Iqra Sahar will join Ventakesh in the Barmy Army. Maryam Bibi, who is playing for Tornadoes for a second season, will be hoping for a little bit more activity than she saw in Dubai, and Natasha Miles will be hoping for more games in the FairBreak Global Invitational 2023.

While Keenu Gill, the only member of the baker’s dozen without any experience playing for another country, will take the field with Ventakesh and Sahar for the Barmy Army; Betty Chan joins Daswani in the Spirit’s squad.

Hill, a former captain of Hong Kong, is known for taking the first wicket in FairBreak history and expressed excitement about returning home to play in front of her “family and friends” in the FairBreak Global Invitational 2023.

Hill claimed that participating in the inaugural Dubai tournament had taught her a lot about herself and that her career had greatly benefited by her ability to play freely and without inhibition.

“My game picked up ever since FairBreak, going to Malaysia for the World Cup qualifiers, and the Asia Cup, where my approach to the game and batting changed,” Hill said and further continued, “I played with more freedom, and there was a sense of team unity, which came from what you do outside the cricket field.”

Hill ended last year’s campaign on a high note, scoring an unbeaten 30 in a 92-run partnership with Marizanne Kapp in the final match against the Tornadoes. A few months later, she was chosen to represent the Northern Diamonds in a regional competition in England.

“The coach of Northern Diamonds picked me based on previous performances, and I am sure the FairBreak event had a positive influence in this process. Having media coverage also allows us to be seen and heard, because if no one knows about you, you are not going to get opportunities,” she concluded.
