Afghanistan and Hong Kong clash in a do-or die contest in Chittagong in the Group A match of the ICC World T20 2014 to stake a claim for playing with the big boys.

Afghanistan have been a revelation in recent times. From ducking bullets in their war-torn homeland, the team has come a long way and go into the match as favourites against Hong Kong.

Hong Kong, like Afghanistan put a shambolic performance in their first game against Nepal. Although their bowling impressed in parts, Hong Kong’s batting and fielding was rather comical and amateurish and depend heavily on skipper Jamie Atkinson and the talented 19-year old Mark Chapman.

Afghanistan, on the other hand will be looking to forget their previous encounter against Bangladesh and against a side so inept at playing spinners, Mohammad Nabi’s men will be fancying their chances.

 

Squads:

Afghanistan: Mohammad Nabi (c), Karim Sadiq, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Asghar Stanikzai, Nawroz Mangal, Samiullah Shenwari, Najibullah Zadran, Mirwais Ashraf, Shapoor Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Najeeb Tarakai, Dawlat Zadran , Aftab Alam, Hamza Hotak, Shafiqullah.

Hong Kong: Jamie Atkinson (c), Waqas Barkat (wk), Aizaz Khan, Mark Chapman, Babar Hayat, Haseeb Amjad, Irfan Ahmed, Nadeem Ahmed, Najeeb Amar, Nizakat Khan, Tanwir Afzal, Kinchit Shah, Munir Dar, Roy Lamsam, Ehsan Nawaz.
