England paceman Matthew Hoggard, Australian batsman Justin Langer and West Indian legend Shivnarine Chanderpaul will all star at the Hong Kong Sixes next month, organisers said Thursday.

The trio will join former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming on the All-Stars team at the annual tournament, which takes place in the southern Chinese city from November 8-9.

"It will be an honour teaming up with such world class players as Shiv, Justin and Stephen for what promises to be a great tournament," said Hoggard, 31, a key part of England's 2005 Ashes winning side.

"We're going to enjoy ourselves and have plenty of fun, but at the same time we'll be deadly serious about trying to win the tournament."

Hong Kong, England, Australia, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa are all represented at the tournament, which has been running since 1992.

Last year, a little-known Sri Lankan side beat the All-Stars team led by Australian spin legend Shane Warne and West Indian Brian Lara in the final.
