1.4

Mukhiya to Irfan Ahmed, OUT, back of a length delivery, pitched outside off and holds the line. Mukhiya bowls this with a bit of some extra effort which got him some extra bounce which surprised Irfan. He stays on his crease and tries for a push to mid-off, outside edge and into the safe hands of Khadka at first slip.

Irfan Ahmed c Khadka b Mukhiya 8 (8m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Hong Kong 16/1   Waqas Barkat 4* (3b)   JK Mukhiya 0.4-0-7-1

4.1

Karn to Atkinson, OUT, back of a length delivery, pitched on middle and moves away with the angle. Atkinson comes forward and tries to cut it from way outside leg, not that short and also played quite away from his body. It went flat towards point where Sagar dives to his front and took a good low catch.

JJ Atkinson c Sagar Pun b Karn 5 (11m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Hong Kong 25/2   Waqas Barkat 6* (8b)   A Karn 2.1-0-7-1

8.6

Gauchan to Waqas Barkat, OUT, length delivery, pitched outside off and Waqas drives it to cover, early call from Nizakat for a single which Waqas responded but later changed his mind. Malla gets under the ball and throws it to the non-striker's end and Nizakat nowhere near to it. A real mix up and ended up in a run out.

Nizakat Khan run out 25 (20m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 138.88

Hong Kong 58/2   Waqas Barkat 14* (19b 1x4)   SP Gauchan 2-0-14-0

11.3

Khadka to Waqas Barkat, OUT, flatter and quicker on off from round the wicket. Barkat stays on his crease and tries for a scoop. The pace of the delivery beats him and off the top edge towards the short third. Vesawkar dives to his left and takes a sensational catch to get rid off Barkat.

Waqas Barkat c Vesawkar b Khadka 25 (48m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 86.20

Hong Kong 73/4   MS Chapman 4* (5b)   P Khadka 1.3-0-14-1

15.3

Mukhiya to Munir Dar, OUT, attempted yorker on off, ended up with a fuller length delivery. Munir goes back and went for a big heave over the long-on region. He got the elevation not the distance. Gauchan settles under it near the fence and grabs it.

Munir Dar c Gauchan b Mukhiya 20 (17m 17b 0x4 2x6) SR: 117.64

Hong Kong 102/5   MS Chapman 8* (12b)   JK Mukhiya 2.3-0-20-2

15.4

Mukhiya to Chapman, OUT, That's the second one in a row for Mukhiya. Bouncer on middle and leg, he rocks back and goes for the pull over midwicket. He was too early at it and a top edge sails towards backward square leg. Man comes run in from the fence and dives it his front and holds it.

MS Chapman c Karn b Mukhiya 8 (27m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 61.53

Hong Kong 102/6   Babar Hayat 0* (0b)   JK Mukhiya 2.4-0-20-3

18.2

Karn to Babar Hayat, OUT, length delivery on middle and leg from over the wicket. He rolled his fingers on it and it came quite slower than expected by Hayat. He went for a big swing over midwicket but it skies towards long-on and Malla holds a nice high catch.

Babar Hayat c Malla b Karn 10 (13m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

Hong Kong 118/7   Tanwir Afzal 3* (5b)   A Karn 3.2-0-14-2

19.6

Mukhiya to Tanwir Afzal, 1 run, OUT, length delivery pitched on off and straightens, driven along the ground to long-off. Tanwir just goes for that unwanted second which was never there.

Tanwir Afzal run out 25 (19m 14b 0x4 2x6) SR: 178.57

Hong Kong 143/7   Aizaz Khan 2* (2b)   JK Mukhiya 4-0-32-3
