short and hit back over the bowler to long-off, ball pingpongs from one end of the wicket to the other but they can't keep running forever and Korea are through to the quarter-finals of the Asian Games
Korea have done wonderfully well, lot of self-belief. Came into the game as underdogs, played a blinder with the bat to take the game away from China who try as they might just couldn't match the Koreans. They receive a warm welcome from their hardy fans on a cold day. Shortened game it was because of prolonged rain since the morning, long future the Koreans have in cricket if they keep going. Thanks for being with us today, we have the first two quarter-finals of the Asian Games tomorrow. This is Ainnur and Shahriar from the ACC signing off, Uncle Binoy George has been shepherding us through from Bangalore.
