An anticlimactic end to a game that was in Afghanistan's control from the three-quarter point of the Hong Kong innings, 216 was unlikely to be enough on a slow but true batting surface. Afghanistan's bowlers all did well, Mirwais the pick with 0-25 off his 10 overs, Hamza and Nabi taking 5-55 off their combined 20. Afghanistan's debutant and Man of the Match Usman Ghani played some audacious strokes on his way to 70 off 68 and with Hong Kong dropping five catches, Afghanistan raced away with the game.
