World T20 - 2nd match, First Round Group A

Hong Kong v Nepal

Nepal won by 80 runs

4.4

Haseeb Amjad to Sagar Pun, OUT, 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

Sagar Pun c Waqas Barkat b Haseeb Amjad 13 (19m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Nepal 36/1   SP Khakurel 22* (15b 4x4)   Haseeb Amjad 1.4-0-11-1

5.1

Nadeem Ahmed to Khakurel, OUT, 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

SP Khakurel c Aizaz Khan b Nadeem Ahmed 22 (23m 16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 137.50

Nepal 36/2   G Malla 0* (2b)   Nadeem Ahmed 0.1-0-0-1

16.2

Najeeb Amar to Khadka, OUT, 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

P Khadka c Nizakat Khan b Najeeb Amar 41 (47m 37b 4x4 0x6) SR: 110.81

Nepal 116/3   G Malla 30* (32b 3x4)   Najeeb Amar 2.2-0-21-1

17.1

Nadeem Ahmed to Bhandari, OUT, 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

B Bhandari c Waqas Barkat b Nadeem Ahmed 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Nepal 124/4   G Malla 37* (35b 4x4)   Nadeem Ahmed 3.1-0-21-2

19.3

Haseeb Amjad to Malla, OUT, 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

G Malla c & b Haseeb Amjad 48 (64m 41b 4x4 1x6) SR: 117.07

Nepal 148/5   S Vesawkar 13* (8b 2x4)   Haseeb Amjad 3.3-0-24-2

19.4

Haseeb Amjad to Vesawkar, 1 run, OUT, 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

S Vesawkar run out 14 (10m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

Nepal 149/6   B Regmi 0* (0b)   Haseeb Amjad 3.4-0-25-2

19.5

Haseeb Amjad to Budayair, OUT, 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

NB Budayair b Haseeb Amjad 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Nepal 149/7   B Regmi 0* (0b)   Haseeb Amjad 3.5-0-25-3

19.6

Haseeb Amjad to Gauchan, OUT, 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..

SP Gauchan run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Nepal 149/8   B Regmi 0* (0b)   Haseeb Amjad 4-0-25-3
