Losing their last seven wickets for 23 runs, Bangladesh were bowled out for 108 by Hong Kong in their ICC World T20 2014 qualifier game. This puts pressure on Bangladesh as they have to defend this score as Nepal won against Afghanistan. Hong Kong have to get the target in 13.2 overs for Nepal to get through to the next round.

Coming into this game, Hong King had absolutely nothing to lose and in the very first over, Tamim Iqbal chopped one onto his stumps. Tanwir Afzal was in great form as Sabbir Rahman was then leg-before.

At three for two, they had a problem. But then Shakib Al Hasan and Anamul Haque played very well. They took Bangladesh past 50 with some attacking strokes and at 51 for two in the seventh over, they looked quite comfortable. But then, Nadeem Ahmed had Anamul bowled.

Mushfiqur Rahman walked in and started smashing it around instantly. It was quite a good exhibition as they were quite inventive and were ready to charge to Hong Kong. At the end of 10 overs, Bangladesh were ina  good position at 80 for three.

That was the over that changed the game. Shakib was caught in the deep when he tried to smash Irfan Ahmed out of the ground. In the next over, Mushfiqur tried to sweep across the line and topedged it. Nizakat Khan then celebrated his firs wicket.

Thereafter, Bangladesh just slipped as Nizakat and Nadeem Ahmed made life tough for the Bangladesh batsmen. Most of the batsmen were bowled as they chopped most of them back onto the stumps. Nadeem Ahmed finished with four for 21 and Nizakat finished with three for 10. Nasir Hossain stood through all the damage and cut a lonely figure, remaining unbeaten on 14.

Brief scores:

Bangladesh 108 (Shakib Al Hasan 34; Tanwir Afzal 2 for 24, Nadeem Ahmed 4 for 21, Nizakat Khan 3 for 10) vs Hong Kong.
