Hong Kong thump Scotland in curtailed game

Hong Kong 72 for 1 (Hayat 26*) beat Scotland 66 for 7 (Amjad 1-8) by nine wickets
Match reduced to 10 overs a side

Hong Kong routed Scotland by nine wickets in the first T20 International between the two sides in Mong Kok, which was reduced to 10 overs a side after wet ground conditions resulted in a delayed start.

Scotland had early momentum after being put in to bat by Hong Kong, reaching a promising 28 for 2 by the third over. The loss of George Munsey and Matt Machan, however, slowed the side down and another two run-outs – of Peter Mommsen and Calum MacLeod – kept the side to 66 for 7.

Hong Kong brushed past the target in 6.2 overs with the top three playing attacking innings. Jamie Atkinson slammed a 7-ball 20 before falling in the fourth over and Babar Hayat and Anshuman Rath carried on in the same tempo to take Hong Kong to 72 for 1.
