See a key battle in the match from the tournament’s website:

Key Battles: Hong Kong v Nepal – Irfan Ahmed vs. Paras Khadka

“Both the all-rounders are in excellent form. Irfan opens the batting for Hong Kong, but it is his bowling that has recently stood out. He has taken nine wickets in four matches in the lead-up to this tournament, with his brand of fast-medium proving hard to get away – he did not concede more than seven runs per over in any of these four matches.

“Irfan hit one of the four centuries that were recorded at the 2013 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier tournament, although he struggled in his other innings – 100 of his 197 runs came in this one innings.

“Khadka got the battle of this head-to-head when these teams met at the 2013 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier. The Nepal skipper hit 46 from 39 balls to help seal his team’s five-wicket victory.

“Khadka enjoys playing against Hong Kong – he hit 68 on the other occasion they have faced each other – and Nepal’s hopes of progression in this event depend heavily on their captain and star player.”
