When Ireland last played Hong Kong in the group stages, the Asian team won the closely fought contest. However, Ireland will look avenge their loss against Hong Kong on Sunday. Hong Kong’s rise to the semi-final was far more dramatic. After finishing second in Group A, Hong Kong pulled off a stunning win over Afghanistan in the first Qualifying Play-off to book a berth in the ICC World 2016. The ultimate goal was achieved, but Hong Kong could have raised its profile even more had it moved to the final.
