Hong Kong captain Tanwir Afzal opted to bat against Scotland, who were chasing their first win at an ICC global event in 20 attempts since the 1999 World Cup, in a dead rubber in Nagpur.

Preston Mommsen, the Scotland captain, conceded that he had preferred to bat as well, on a cracked pitch that turn in the first match of the day between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe.

Scotland, sporting a pink jersey, rung in three changes. Con de Lange, the left-arm spinner, came in for offspinner Michael Leask. Safyaan Sharif and Alasdair Evans paved the way for Rob Taylor and Gavin Main.

Hong Kong made a lone change; pacer Adil Mehmood, who had made his debut against Afghanistan last month in the Asia Cup, replacing Haseeb Amjad.
