Hong Kong Women24/10(16.4 overs)

Tabarak Dar's come in for Hong Kong's coach Charlie Burke who's rushed back to the SAR for this weekend's Hong Kong Sixes, he'll be with the team when they take on Pakistan tomorrow. "I think we fielded well, bowled a little short, but India are the best bowling team in the competition and as a batting line-up they did really well, very very positive, drove, lofted and played proper cricket shots. Hong Kong need more exposure, need to play more cricket. The world of women's cricket is still too small. I hope these kinds of matches will continue and we get more chances because we have such a fresh and enthusiastic group of Chinese majority and sub-continental girls in the team. India did not take this match lightly you could see how much they wanted to assert themselves and its that kind of mindset that will help all the women's cricketers here."

Our thanks to Tabarak for his time with us in the box, Player of the Match here is Harmanpreet Kaur, acting captain in place of the resting Mithali Raj. We're back from Guangzhou tomorrow at 1000 hrs local time (0200hrs GMT).

"We're far behind still compared to the Test-playing nations," says Tabarak Dar. "With more experienced players Hong Kong would have a better chance of competing, this is a young side who are trying their best but it is a difficult thing for anybody. Its like a Indian school team playing the seniors."
