1st Quarter-Final, Incheon, Sep 30 2014, Asian Games Men's Cricket Competition
(19.4/20 ov)130/3
Hong Kong won by 7 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

Malaysia had their chances, literally, Nizakat their hero (no, not forgetting what you did with the ball, Nadeem) was dropped twice and as much as his partners struggled, he ran hard and hit hard and Malaysia just bowled looser than they'd have liked. Agonising for any side to lose a close game, especially when the losers know they could so easily have won. Hong Kong go through to meet the winners of tomorrow's quarter-final between Afghanistan and Nepal. We're back in a couple of hours with the second quarter-final between South Korea and Sri Lanka. The move to a gold medal that so many of these teams so palpably want continues! Thanks for being with us up to now.
