440dThe Report by Mohammad Isam in Chittagong

Dar guides HK to historic win; Bangladesh through

Hong Kong pulled off the shock of the tournament thus far beating Bangladesh by two wickets despite the hosts managing to edge past Nepal on net run-rate for a place in the Super 10s

Commentary

Well, what a rollercoaster that was, another demonstration that low-scoring Twenty20s can be thrillers as well.

Nadeem Ahmed is the Man of the Match: "This effort is dedicated to my parents, who put in a lot of work for my cricket. There was nothing in the wicket, sometimes it was keeping low, sometimes it slides through, just wanted to use that. Great experience playing in front of big crowds."

James: "That definitely gives HK something to take from the tournament. Nepal also have plenty of positives to take. Bangladesh go through, and congratulations to them. It's their party, after all. Bit disappointed in Afghanistan after their excellent showing in the Asia Cup. Ireland to get through tomorrow to represent the associates? Let's hope so (sorry, Zim fans!)."

Sakush KC: "Group A: Full Circle Nepal won Afghanistan won Hong Kong won Bangladesh won Nepal. Entertainment at its best! "

akshdp: "seeing a trend here at T20.. when needed a single to win.. SIX becomes a safe shot because of the field coming in... also the gives a Style Finish.."

Mushfiqur Rahim: "It is a positive that we qualified for the Super 10s. Probably, we didn't read the wicket very well, we thought it was a 140 wicket. Rubel Hossain is not doing good, let's see how he is tomorrow."

Neil Atkinson: "Biggest win in our history. We've got a couple of tournaments at the Associate level coming up, and we are looking to build on what we have achieved here."

Yogesh: "Meanwhile, a minor record stands for Nepal. They didn't bowl a single wide or a no ball in the whole tournament. They are the only team to do that ever in T20 world cup tournament ;)"

That's a wrap from us. Thanks everyone for all the comments over an enthralling day that showcased how much talent is there in Associate cricket. See you all tomorrow. G'night.
