    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
    6.4 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
    1.6 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
    11.1 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

    10.3 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
    10.4 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
    12.3 the procession continues! The batsman sees width, throws bat, hits it straight to point. Numero Tres for Regmi 60/8
    11.4 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
    13.6 '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

Match Notes

Dodgy record

69

Hong Kong made the second-lowest total in the history of the World T20

Undone by spin

4

No. of wickets lost by Hong Kong between the 11th and 12th overs bowled by Basant Regmi and Shakti Gauchan. All bowled

Oops

Gyanendra Malla shells a skier running back. Difficult take as Babar Hayat looked for the stands in the fifth over

Know what to do

5

No. of T20s Hong Kong have won fielding first, out of nine matches. The highest target chased down was 162 v Bermuda in March 2012

Made them pay

Sharad Vesawkar smashes one into the covers and sets off. Direct hit would have found him short by miles. The over - the 19th - ends with two boundaries

Not so costly drop

Babar Hayat drops Paras Khadka at deep extra cover in the 17th over, but he holed out off the very next ball for 39

New high

76

This stand between Paras Khadka and Gyanendra Malla becomes Nepal's highest third-wicket partnership in T20s

Knowing the opposition

112

Paras Khadka's numbers against Hong Kong in two previous T20 matches, including his best score of 68

Costly drop?

Tanwir Afzal dropped Paras Khadka at long-on in the 11th over

Hitting better than average

94.50

Subash Khakurel's career strike rate in 11 T20 matches
