Hong Kong:

Pakistan batting legend Inzamam-ul-Haq is the latest big name to sign up for the Hong Kong Sixes tournament, organisers said on Wednesday.

The former Pakistan skipper -- who hammered 25 Test centuries in a stellar 15-year career -- has confirmed he will take part in the annual showpiece on November 8-9.

Inzamam, 38, will appear alongside Australia's Damien Martyn and ex-New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming in the All-Stars team.

"I'm delighted to be taking part in the Hong Kong Cricket Sixes and I'm looking forward to what promises to be a great weekend," said Inzamam.

"As far as cricketers are concerned, the Hong Kong event is without doubt the premier sixes tournament in world cricket and the one we all want to be involved in.

Last year's tournament featured such luminaries as Shane Warne, Brian Lara, Glenn McGrath and Anil Kumble.

The lucrative new iSixes World Series was unveiled last month. The tournament features all nine Test-playing nations, with one million US dollars going to the winners. The first leg is in Singapore in July.
