The performance from the Hong Kong bowlers wasnt terrible but they didnt have enough runs on the board to ever put pressure on the batsmen. Imam saw Pakistan through to the end with an unbeaten half-century while Babar Azam looked solid until he was dismissed for 33. Hong Kong will need to improve in their next game but it will be tough against India.

Over 38. no runs. Bowler: Hasan Ali. Hong Kong: 10-116(rr 3.05)
38.1 OUT! Run Out (Sub). Hasan Ali to Ehsan Nawaz. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on, fielded by Ali, by Ahmed. Huge mix-up in the middle and Pakistan have an opportunity to get a run-out at either end. They end up working it out and getting the final wicket, leaving Hong Kong all out for 116. It was hard work for the batsmen and wickets fell in clumps which didnt help the momentum. There was a nice partnership between Kinchit Shah and Aizaz Khan but its not enough to put up a decent total. Pakistan should cruise this chase.

31.6 OUT! Bowled. Usman Khan to Tanwir Afzal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Two in two. The ball is past Afzal before he can get forward into the ball and the stumps are sent flying. Usman is on a hat-trick but he will have to wait until the next over.
31.5 OUT! L.B.W. Usman Khan to Scott McKechnie. Half volley, outside off stump moves in front working, hit pad to. Pace is too much for the Hong Kong batsmen and McKechnie doesnt pick up the length. He is playing back to a ball which was very full and would have been better on the front foot.

31.3 Usman Khan to Scott McKechnie. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shinwari.
