Hong Kong - The South African team has progressed to the Cup round robin after winning two of three group matches at the Hong Kong Sixes.

South Africa won their first Hong Kong Sixes match against Hong Kong by four wicket, lost their second game to Australia by 35 runs and then beat England by 21 runs to progress to the next phase of the competition, where the face Hong Kong, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

South Africa has achieved greater success at the Sixes before, winning the event in 2006 and 2009, which would suggest that 2012 may be their year once again.

With players of the calibre of captain Colin Ingram, Dillon Du Preez and Rory Kleinveldt – all big-hitting batsmen – South Africa were once again a force to reckon with.

Fast bowler Wayne Parnell was one of the stars of the first group phase and will hope to continue his excellent form into Sunday's matches.

Results:

Hong Kong 84-2 lost to South Africa 90-2 by 4 wkts

Australia 91-2 beat South Africa 56 by 35 runs

South Africa 113-1 beat England 92-3 by 21 runs

(South Africa and Hong Kong progressed by winning two out of three matches in Group A, Whilst Sri Lanka, undefeated in group B, also progressed along with Pakistan)

Fixtures:

South Africa v. Pakistan - 03H15
South Africa v. Sri Lanka - 06H15
Hong Kong v. South Africa - 07H45

Team: 

Khayelihle Zondo, Wayne Parnell, David Miller, Lyall Meyer, Rory Kleinveldt,  Dillon du Preez and Colin Ingram. Coached by Vincent Barnes.
