4.4 to Sagar Pun, Whatta catch! Sagar Pun perishes playing an aerial punch, but this one was hit hard, very hard and the fielder at cover does well to dive to his right and pouch the catch with both hands. First blow for Hong Kong. 36/1
19.3 to G Malla, another short ball, another pull, but this one ends the wonderful innings as Malla top edges it for the bowler to run a few paces and take a simple catch. Malla misses his half century by a couple of runs but he has given the innings some useful impetus. 148/5
19.5 to NB Budayair, make it three in three! The batsman goes for something too cute by going across the stumps to sweep a yorker, but looses his off stump. Hong Kong are doing well to limit the damage in this over. 149/7
Najeeb Amar302919.6654000
16.2 to P Khadka, no, his luck runs out this time! Again, Khadka looks to launch it out of the ground and makes a much better connection compared to the last ball, but can only hit it to long on. A good innings comes to an end. 116/3
Nadeem Ahmed402626.50102010
5.1 to SP Khakurel, he strikes first ball! Well, Khakurel has thrown it away. It's a full delivery, slightly flatter, and Khakurel looks to chip it over the mid-on fielder but is not able to get under it. He ends up lobbing it for the fielder at mid-on. Both openers have not departed after what looked like a very good start. 36/2
17.1 to B Bhandari, they are on the fast lane and not slowing down! This one was full and the batsman threw his bat at it anyway, but only manages to hit it high, not long. It sails up in the night sky, and the fielder running in from long on manages to hold on to a smart catch. 124/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Paras Khadka20713.5081000
0.1 to Irfan Ahmed, out first ball! Khadka starts around the wicket and this one pitches on a good length on middle and then bounces. Ahmed propped his bat out at an angle and has feathered it through. It had gone on with the arm and the batsman was caught out fishing for it. 0/1
Sompal Kami301324.33112000
1.6 to JJ Atkinson, chopped on! Kami unleashes a back of a length skidder just outside off and Atkinson was going for that cut shot again. This time he gets a inside edge onto the stumps and the bowler sends him off as well. Nepal are absolutely thrilled!. 9/2
13.6 to Najeeb Amar, 'no. 9, he is all mine,' Kami might say.. Amar defended a few but he had to throw the bat at some stage, he decided now was the time.. It's a length ball outside off, expectedly bounces extra, the batsman goes for a booming back foot drive and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper. 62/9
Jitendra Mukhiya201216.0072000
16.6 to Nadeem Ahmed, end of the innings! It's a beautiful yorker and the batsman threw his bat around, misses and loses the off stump..Massive win for Nepal here. 69/10
Basant Regmi401433.50172000
10.3 to MS Chapman, Timber!! that has gone through! The batsman is beaten in the flight! He was looking for that cut short again, but it was much straighter and much fuller than the first delivery. Chapman misses and it hits the middle of the middle stump. Hong Kong sink further. 58/4
10.4 to Nizakat Khan, Take that! Second time he takes the middle stump out! Super bowling this by Regmi, tossed up, goes straight on and the batsman, looking to play across the line, misses the line of the ball. The middle stump is uprooted. Nepal are on a roll here.... 58/5
12.3 to Tanwir Afzal, the procession continues! The batsman sees width, throws bat, hits it straight to point. Numero Tres for Regmi. 60/8
Shakti Gauchan40932.25170000
6.4 to Waqas Barkat, a wicket for Shakti in his first over! The batsman charged down the pitch and looked to chip it over long off, but he was too early into the shot - his bottom hand coming off the handle too - and only manages to hit it straight to the long off fielder. 37/3
11.1 to Babar Hayat, they keep coming! Now Shakti hits the top of off! Shakti has been bowling these low trajectory skidders just short of length. This time, Hayat, went back to push it through off and missed it completely. He looked around to check with the umpire if that was the ball hitting the stump or the keeper, but surely it was the ball that kissed the top... 58/6
11.4 to Aizaz Khan, the stumps are taking a battering! Hong Kong are having trouble keeping these low skidders out! It's bowled from wide of the crease, it keeps coming in with the angle and the batsman, looking for the cut, chops it on to his leg stump..Shakti goes for a celebratory sprint..He is unstoppable. 58/7
