Scorecard
Hong Kong Created History By Beating Bangladesh In Their Last Match

Bangladesh today played Hong Kong in their last Group A match of the first round. This match was essential for Bangladesh as a win would have ensured qualification to the next round. Hong Kong this time debuted in a big tournament and thus was looking for their first victory in the cricket arena. On winning the toss Hong Kong elected to field first and Bangladesh had a poor start as they lost two wickets very cheaply. The Hong Kong team bowled pretty well as they kept taking wickets at a regular intervals. With a good spell of bowling Bangladesh was restricted to a score of 108. 

Hong Kong had a good start but lost their way somewhat in the middle when they lost wickets in a quick succession. But soon Dar took over and controlled the whole game successfully. Batting well he made sure with his 36 that his team won their first match against a higher ranked cricket playing nation. The associate nation won their first match in the last over of the game. This match surely could be a booster for all the associate nations. Nadeem Ahmed the Hong Kong bowler was awarded the man of the match award for his 4/21.
