Ehsan Khan402827.0072000
2.5 to Babar Azam, caught and bowled. Slower in the air, Babar goes down the ground, but fails to keep it down. A bit of an unforced error, but possibly it has dipped on him. Offers a return catch while looking for a single down the ground. Ehsan takes a good low catch to his right even as the ball swerves away. 13/1
16.1 to Fakhar Zaman, taken at backward point! Slices this to the man placed at the edge of the circle. The ball was a lowish full toss which was angling into him from the angle from around the wicket, as it was also tossed up. Fakhar made room early, and also skipped down. Ended up finding the fielder since he had to play at it once he was down the pitch. Just when he was looking dangerous, Hong Kong have got Fakhar. 129/2

Naseem Shah20723.50110020
2.1 to Nizakat Khan, looks to drive this over square again, but this time he gets just the toe end. Looks like it has arrived before he is through the shot. This is full and at 143ks and outside off. He is trying to drive from deep inside the crease. 16/1
2.5 to Babar Hayat, four dots, a slog and timber. That's Hayat's innings. No foot movement. Deep in the crease and heaves at this length ball. It nips back in a little and kisses the top of off. 16/2
Shahnawaz Dahani21713.5091000
4.5 to Yasim Murtaza, late on the pull and he is caught. Dahani gets it head high, and Murtaza manages just a soft top edge. Khushdil charges in from mid-on and dives to take the low catch. 19/3
Iftikhar Ahmed10303.0030000
Haris Rauf10606.0031000
Shadab Khan2.40843.00100010
6.2 to Aizaz Khan, doesn't pick the wrong'un. Is done in by length too. Goes back to look to late-cut this length ball, but it pitches on on off and turns back in. Too full to cut anyway, and then the turn in does him completely. Four down now. 25/4
8.6 to Haroon Arshad, they are not reading Shadab. Haroon looks to go down for a sweep, sees the length is not quite there, then tries to just guide it behind square on the leg side, and gets too far inside the line. The wrong'un does the rest. 36/7
10.1 to A Shukla, gone, bowled him! Another clueless slog from a Hong Kong batter, and Shadab is on a hat-trick. This was tossed up, and was a wrong 'un. It spent a good few second wobbling in, and pitched full outside off, before turning in to strike off stump as Shukla missed his slog. 38/9
10.4 to Mohammad Ghazanfar, confident appeal for leg before, and given! But Ghazanfar reviews. Looked like there was bat first on real time, but we'll see. Nope, it is certainly pad first, as it flips the flap of the back pad off a good length on off, with the ball skidding on off the surface. There wasn't much of a turn there, as he got his front leg out of the way to try and tried to poke at it but missed. Replays show there is umpire's call on impact, and also umpire's call on clipping the off stump. Hong Kong cleaned up for 38, which is 31 fewer than their previous lowest score in T20Is. 38/10
Mohammad Nawaz20532.5080010
7.3 to KD Shah, full enough for the lbw? The umpire thinks so, but the batter has reviewed it. Nawaz is bowling from round the wicket and bowls it full. Shah is beaten on the slog sweep and hit on the pad. But I don't see any turn back in. The only way he gets the lbw then is with a really full ball that doesn't have time to angle past the off stump. This is full enough. Just about. Clipping off, says the ball tracker. That makes it five down. 30/5
7.5 to SS McKechnie, bowled between the legs, I think. Yeah he is. Premeditates a sweep and this is really full. If he stretches forward a little, he can even take it on the full, but he has committed to the sweep. The ball squeezes between his legs to knock the stumps over. 31/6
9.1 to Zeeshan Ali, this is a procession. At least he is not out middle stump to a goggly. Steps out of the crease looking to hit a six, but is not quite to the pitch of it, and the turn away means he doesn't get enough into the shot. Caught at long-on. 36/8
