While Hong Kong struggled in their opening encounter against Scotland where their batting was found wanting as four wickets from Scottish offspinner Tom Sole ripped through their middle-order resulting in a humiliating 91 all-out, the team made a thrilling comeback as they pulled off a major upset by toppling Afghanistan and in the process achieved their first win over a Full-member nation.
Anshuman Rath led Hong Kong’s revival as his 65 powered his team to a competitive 8-241 which were successfully defended thanks to Ehsan Khan’s spell of 4-33, making the two aforementioned players key to Hong Kong’s fortune in the succeeding matches.
