PAK VS HKG | Pakistan did not let Hong Kong reach 50 runs!
Pakistan did a really good job and did not let the Hong Kong team reach even 50 runs. Thus, they got all the wickets of Hong Kong in the 38th run and 10th over. This is said to be the lowest score ever made in the Asia cup and t20 format. Pakistan’s balling was uncontrollable, and Hong Kong lost all its wickets without even reach to 50 runs. So, Pakistan won by 155 runs and 10 overs, making it a very quick match.
Pakistan gave Hong Kong a goal of 194 runs in a game that was important for both teams’ chances of moving on in the Asia Cup. Pakistan only had 13 runs when they lost their captain in the third over. But Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman scored 116 runs together to set up Khushdil Shah’s amazing last three overs. Zaman, on the other hand, got 53 runs off of 41 balls before he was run out on the first ball of the 17th over.
Still, the two of them made it easy for Khushdil Shah to use the Hong Kong bowlers to his advantage. Khushdil’s cameo of 35 runs off 15 balls helped Pakistan get to 193 and 2. Mohammad Rizwan batted well until the end of the innings, ending with 78 runs and no wickets lost. Off-spinner Ehsan Khan was the only Hong Kong bowler to get two wickets. He bowled four overs and gave up only 28 runs while getting rid of Babar and Zaman. Both teams needed to win this game to move on to the Super 4s round of the tournament. Since India, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka have already moved on to the Super 4s, this will be the last game of the group round.
