View dismissal SP Khakurel c Aizaz Khan b Nadeem Ahmed 22 23 16 4 0 137.50
5.1 55.6 mph, he strikes first ball! Well, Khakurel has thrown it away. It's a full delivery, slightly flatter, and Khakurel looks to chip it over the mid-on fielder but is not able to get under it. He ends up lobbing it for the fielder at mid-on. Both openers have not departed after what looked like a very good start 36/2
View dismissal Sagar Pun c Waqas Barkat b Haseeb Amjad 13 19 13 2 0 100.00
4.4 79.1 mph, Whatta catch! Sagar Pun perishes playing an aerial punch, but this one was hit hard, very hard and the fielder at cover does well to dive to his right and pouch the catch with both hands. First blow for Hong Kong 36/1
View dismissal G Malla c & b Haseeb Amjad 48 64 41 4 1 117.07
19.3 81.3 mph, another short ball, another pull, but this one ends the wonderful innings as Malla top edges it for the bowler to run a few paces and take a simple catch. Malla misses his half century by a couple of runs but he has given the innings some useful impetus 148/5
View dismissal P Khadka* c Nizakat Khan b Najeeb Amar 41 47 37 4 0 110.81
16.2 65.5 mph, no, his luck runs out this time! Again, Khadka looks to launch it out of the ground and makes a much better connection compared to the last ball, but can only hit it to long on. A good innings comes to an end 116/3
View dismissal B Bhandari c Waqas Barkat b Nadeem Ahmed 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
17.1 54.5 mph, they are on the fast lane and not slowing down! This one was full and the batsman threw his bat at it anyway, but only manages to hit it high, not long. It sails up in the night sky, and the fielder running in from long on manages to hold on to a smart catch 124/4
View dismissal S Vesawkar run out (Aizaz Khan/†Atkinson) 14 10 9 2 0 155.55
19.4 from Haseeb Amjad, another wicket as Nepal look for extra runs! The batsman punches the wide delivery to deep cover and looks for a second, but that was always going to be tight as it went straight to the fielder. Vesawkar was comfortably short of the crease 149/6
B Regmi not out 0 3 0 0 0 -
View dismissal NB Budayair b Haseeb Amjad 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.5 79.1 mph, make it three in three! The batsman goes for something too cute by going across the stumps to sweep a yorker, but looses his off stump. Hong Kong are doing well to limit the damage in this over 149/7
View dismissal SP Gauchan run out (Haseeb Amjad) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.6 from Haseeb Amjad, well, four wickets in four deliveries! Another run out. The bowler finishes with an excellent yorker that the batsman digs out back towards him. It was the last ball so Nepal looked for a single anyway, but no way the bowler was going to miss hitting the stumps from a close range.. 149/8

View dismissal Irfan Ahmed c †Khakurel b Khadka 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 out first ball! Khadka starts around the wicket and this one pitches on a good length on middle and then bounces. Ahmed propped his bat out at an angle and has feathered it through. It had gone on with the arm and the batsman was caught out fishing for it 0/1
View dismissal Waqas Barkat c Mukhiya b Gauchan 18 27 19 3 0 94.73
6.4 52.7 mph, a wicket for Shakti in his first over! The batsman charged down the pitch and looked to chip it over long off, but he was too early into the shot - his bottom hand coming off the handle too - and only manages to hit it straight to the long off fielder 37/3
View dismissal JJ Atkinson*† b Sompal Kami 6 6 7 1 0 85.71
1.6 82.5 mph, chopped on! Kami unleashes a back of a length skidder just outside off and Atkinson was going for that cut shot again. This time he gets a inside edge onto the stumps and the bowler sends him off as well. Nepal are absolutely thrilled! 9/2
View dismissal Babar Hayat b Gauchan 20 38 25 2 0 80.00
11.1 54.3 mph, they keep coming! Now Shakti hits the top of off! Shakti has been bowling these low trajectory skidders just short of length. This time, Hayat, went back to push it through off and missed it completely. He looked around to check with the umpire if that was the ball hitting the stump or the keeper, but surely it was the ball that kissed the top.. 58/6
View dismissal MS Chapman b Regmi 13 14 12 1 0 108.33
10.3 50.9 mph, Timber!! that has gone through! The batsman is beaten in the flight! He was looking for that cut short again, but it was much straighter and much fuller than the first delivery. Chapman misses and it hits the middle of the middle stump. Hong Kong sink further 58/4
View dismissal Nizakat Khan b Regmi 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
10.4 52.1 mph, Take that! Second time he takes the middle stump out! Super bowling this by Regmi, tossed up, goes straight on and the batsman, looking to play across the line, misses the line of the ball. The middle stump is uprooted. Nepal are on a roll here... 58/5
View dismissal Tanwir Afzal c Khadka b Regmi 0 10 5 0 0 0.00
12.3 48.7 mph, the procession continues! The batsman sees width, throws bat, hits it straight to point. Numero Tres for Regmi 60/8
View dismissal Aizaz Khan b Gauchan 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
11.4 55.9 mph, the stumps are taking a battering! Hong Kong are having trouble keeping these low skidders out! It's bowled from wide of the crease, it keeps coming in with the angle and the batsman, looking for the cut, chops it on to his leg stump..Shakti goes for a celebratory sprint..He is unstoppable 58/7
View dismissal Najeeb Amar c †Bhandari b Sompal Kami 2 10 9 0 0 22.22
13.6 81.7 mph, 'no. 9, he is all mine,' Kami might say.. Amar defended a few but he had to throw the bat at some stage, he decided now was the time.. It's a length ball outside off, expectedly bounces extra, the batsman goes for a booming back foot drive and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper 62/9
