Pakistan defeated Hong Kong by 155 runs in the Super-4, forcing Hong Kong to forfeit.

Hong Kong was forced to forfeit after Pakistan defeated Hong Kong by 155 runs in the Super-4.

In the Asia Cup, the teams of India and Pakistan will face off once more. The meeting between the two of them has been scheduled on Sunday, September 4. Pakistan narrowly overcame Hong Kong in their most recent encounter to go to the Asia Cup Super-Four and win their second game in a row against Team India. Mohammad Rizwan, Khushdil Shah, and Shadab Khan all put in great performances as Pakistan trounced Hong Kong by a large margin of 155 runs. In comparison to Pakistan’s score of 193 runs, Hong Kong’s squad was bowled out for only 38 runs.

On Friday, September 2, the final game of the group stage was played in Sharjah, and the victorious team had to go to the next stage. Pakistan and Hong Kong were forced to concede loss to India in their opening games. The previous champion proved that Pakistan was a strong contender to win this match from the start. Pakistan first amassed a sizable total with the bat, and then, with the help of equally skilled pacers and spinners, gave Hong Kong’s young team a very tiny total. Additionally, this is Pakistan’s biggest T20 victory.

Rizwan and Fakhar completed the task after Babar’s failure.

Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, failed to lead the side in batting for the second game in a row. Babar, who only scored 10 runs against India, left the field in the third over after scoring nine runs this time. Ehsan Khan, an off-spinner, caught him on his own ball. Babar was removed by Ehsan once more. Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman took over the innings from this point on.

After a sluggish start, both of them picked up the pace of the runs and shared a partnership of 116 runs in 80 balls for the second wicket. Rizwan reached his half-century in 43 balls during this time, and Fakhar reached fifty in 38 balls.

Khushdil gave me joy.

Fakhar, who had scored 53 runs before returning to the pavilion, was also dismissed by Ehsan. Following that, Rizwan hit a few boundaries, but Khushdil Shah saw Pakistan’s innings through to the end. In just 15 balls, this left-handed batsman hit 35 runs, including 5 sixes. Khushdil struck four consecutive sixes on the final four balls of this innings as well.

Hong Kong is in poor shape.

In response, Hong Kong’s innings never got off to a good start and wickets kept going down. In the first two overs, the openers scored 16 runs together, but after the third over, the wickets began to fall. The entire innings was built by the spin duo of Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz after Naseem Shah opened the wicket. In just 2.4 overs, Shadab got 4 wickets for 8 runs, and in 2 overs, Mohammad Nawaz claimed 3 wickets for 5 runs. No batsman for Hong Kong reached double figures, and the maximum 10 runs came from extras. Only 10.4 overs later, Hong Kong was bowled out for 38 runs.
