Hong Kong will play for pride when they clash against Bangladesh in their Group A qualifying match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on Thursday.
An in-form Bangladeshi side will aim to maintain their dominance over the minnows Hong Kong, who are out of the tournament.
Bangladesh are all set for the main draw of the ICC World T20 2014. However, the hosts would not want to leave anything to chance when they face Hong Kong in their last qualifying match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong.
Bangladesh gave Afghanistan and Nepal no chance to breathe when they faced them and one can expect the same when they face Hong Kong, the only side that has lost all their games in this group. This shouldn’t test Bangladesh too much as they are way above Hong Kong, in terms of quality.
