commentary

Two matches into the tournament and we have witnessed two one-sided games. Let's hope the trend changes. We'll be back tomorrow for the Group B clash between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. Should be a good contest. Until then, it's goodbye from Abhinand Raghavendran, Sagar Chawla, Varun Dixit, Rishi Roy, Raju Peethala and our scorer Sulthan. Take care.

Usman Khan, Man of the Match: Thanks to God and my parents. Obviously, when I came to bowl in the first spell, I tried to pick wickets with the new ball, but luck was not with me. Second spell, I got the ball to reverse swing and I managed to take wickets. It's alright. I was bleeding from my feet but all is fine right now and I am fit. I just slipped a little bit so I thought it would be safe to get it checked. I'm happy with the bowling and I managed to bowl like I wanted to. It's fun to bowl with competition, some healthy competition amongst the bowlers, and we play our cricket from session to session and give our best at all times.

Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan skipper: As a captain, I saw couple of things which we should work on. We should have finished this match with 9 or 10 wickets and we need to bowl better with the new ball. New ball didn't swing for us and that is alarming for us. We will work on it in our next practice session. To win against India, we have to be at our best in all the three departments.

Anshuman Rath, Hong Kong skipper: There were a lot of soft dismissals and 120 is not good enough. Credit to the Pakistani bowlers ,but i think there were a lot of soft dismissals. Spinners were top class, but we didn't score enough to give them support. Great to go out there and great to face them. At the end of the day we wanted to put up a fight and today we just didn't try. Early on, it did swing a big and there was bounce too. We did get to a start, but we didn't convert it in the middle overs.Not a good enough total.

STAT: First time Imam won't be converting a 50+ score to a three-figure score. He has 4 hundreds to date in ODIs.

Chasing a below-par score, Pakistan's openers got them off to a decent start. The introduction of spin saw Fakhar Zaman lose his wicket. Hong Kong should have had Imam-ul-Haq twice, but the umpires denied that on both occasions. Babar Azam came in at three and played some glorious shots and in the process completed 2000 ODI runs before playing one shot too many. It was just a formality and Shoaib Malik and Imam-ul-Haq took their team past the winning line with ease. Time for presentations.

20:56 Local Time, 16:56 GMT, 22:26 IST: In these hot conditions, Pakistan hardly broke a sweat as they start off their campaign with a comprehensive win. They were excellent in all three departments of the game. It all started with a weird run-out - courtesy a Shadab Khan direct hit. There was just one substantial partnership in the Hong Kong innings - a half-century stand between Kinchit Shah and Aizaz Khan. Usman Khan came back in his second spell and scalped three wickets to bundle out Hong Kong for 116.

Ehsan Khan to Imam-ul-Haq, no run, that looked plumb to my naked eye. There is no inside edge for sure. It has gone past his inside edge. Third umpire says that is NOT OUT. He thinks there is bat involved. This is a shocker of a decision. One of the most ordinary decisions, I have seen for a very long time. It was a flatter one at the stumps, it came with the arm. Imam-ul-Haq was outfoxed by the pace on the ball and he was late in bringing his bat down. He was rapped on the pads and it was going on to hit the stumps but third umpire thought otherwise. Imam-ul-Haq is extremely lucky to be still batting

Ehsan Khan to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Scott McKechnie!! Umpire waited for an eternity to raise his finger, he finally did. Fakhar Zaman was looking at his partner for taking the review, he decides against it in the end. It was a flatter one outside off, Fakhar Zaman wanted to steer it fine of short third. It was too close to attempt that shot. In the end, Fakhar Zaman was cramped for room and a fine edge takes it to keeper. Wicket on the first ball for the off-spinner.

We are back after the break. Pakistan need 82 runs more. Let's see how much time they will take to chase them down.

19:02 Local Time, 15:02 GMT, 20:32 IST: So, an innings break after 7 overs of Pakistan's innings. We very rarely see this but both teams will welcome it considering the heat in Dubai. Pakistan have gone about their business thus far in a professional fashion. They haven't tried to go too hard and showed respect to the opening bowlers of Hong Kong. After getting their eye in, both Fakhar and Imam have tried couple of expansive shots. It should be a walk in the park for Pakistan. Join us back in 40 minutes time.
