Pakistan thrash Hongkong
Pakistan handed Hong Kong a crushing 155-run defeat in a Group B match of the Asia Cup at National stadium at Karachi on Tuesday night.
Electing to bat, Pakistan overcame early hiccups to post an imposing 288 for nine and then stopped Hong Kong at 133 for nine in 37.2 overs to make an easy winning start.
Hong Kong innings folded without losing all ten wickets as Zain Abbas did not complete his innings after retiring at individual score of 26, which was also highest for them. Hong Kong, led by Tabarak Dar, did well in the first part stopping Pakistan from reaching 300 but failed to score against experienced bowling attack.
