Hong Kong 91 (Das 6-29) v Nepal

Hong Kong were skittled out for 91 by Nepal on the second day of the latest Intercontinental Cup match in Kathmandu. Following the first day wash-out Nepal set about making up for lost time, led by Binod Das who took 6 for 29.

Das ripped through the Hong Kong top-order as none of the top six reached double figures and they slumped to 40 for 8, after Nepal had won the toss and put them into bat. There was some late resistance from Nasir Hameed, who made 32 from 94 balls in over two hours of steady accumulation, but he was the last wicket to fall with Hong Kong still short of the hundred mark.

However, before Nepal could begin their reply the rain returned and is set to be the deciding factor in this match.
