Pakistan Secures First-Ever Win Against Hong Kong, Advances to Super 4

Pak Advances to Super 4 with Convincing Win over Hong Kong in Sharjah.

The victory by 155 runs was Pakistan biggest margin of victory (by runs) in T20I cricket. Their earlier biggest win by runs was against West Indies in 2018 in Karachi, once they won by 143 runs

Hong Kong had a superb begin to the contest, with Pakistan meandering round at 129/2 after 16.1 overs when Fakhar Zaman departed for 53.

However Khushdil Shah turned the momentum in Pakistan’s favor, with a blistering knock of 35* in only 15 deliveries. His knock included 5 large sixes.

Mohammad Rizwan dropped anchor, scoring 78* off 57 deliveries as Pakistan posted a big rating of 193/2 on the board of their 20 overs.

The Pakistan bowling unit then did the job, as the pace of Naseem Shah and the spin of Shadab Khan proved too hot to handle for Hong Kong.

They had been bowled out for 38, their lowest complete in T20Is. Naseem Shah ended with figures of 2/7 in two overs and Shadab with 4/8 in 2.4 overs as Pakistan secured their passage into the Super 4 stage of the match.

A heavyweight clash against India awaits on Sunday, which was an ideal preparation for Pakistan for the match.
