So that is it from this game! However, we still have one more game coming up which should be an absolute cracker. It is Oman taking on the United Arab Emirates. That game begins at 1930 local (1530 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
Gary Wilson, the Ireland skipper feels they did not play their best cricket. Further adds he felt 160 was a par score on this wicket but the chase was a clinical one. States Andy Balbirnie has been doing it for a long time now and he played another excellent knock here. Reckons he is not the ideal T20 player but is a clever batter. Also says Rankin too was brilliant with the ball. Ends by saying they are looking forward to their next game and they want to take it one game at a time and want to give their best.
Aizaz Khan, the Hong Kong skipper, says he feels they were around 15-20 runs short and they lost their way towards the end with the bat. States Kinchit was really good and he has been in the runs lately. Admits they were not able to execute their plans with the ball and they can do a lot better. Mentions they need to assess their plans and come back stronger in the next game. Ends by saying that there is still a long way to go and they need to work harder.
Paul Stirling is down for an interview. Says it is a nice feeling to get the first win and points on the board. States it is important to get off to a good start and says that it helped him. Also informs that it is a very good track to bat on. On being asked about the run out, he says that normally Kevin O'Brien gets in on those kinds of situations he will be much more careful about it.
Earlier in the day, Kinchit Shah was the only batsman for Hong Kong to show some fight as he received no support from the others. The Irish bowlers were up to the mark today, especially Rankin and Adair, who were the pick of the bowlers.
The Hong Kong bowling wasn't that great, to say the least! Yes, the total they were defending was under par but their bowling too was ordinary. They were guilty of bowling too short and wide and with that kind of bowling, something around 150 is impossible to defend.
Ireland have chased this with absolute ease! Right from the start of the second innings, the Hong Kong players knew they were at least 20 runs short but looking at this dominating win, those extra 20 runs wouldn't have mattered. The Irish did not get off to the best of starts as they lost Kevin O'Brien in the first over itself. Andy Balbirnie and Paul Stirling then took Ireland to the brink of victory with an 86-run stand. The opener scored a quickfire half ton to completely corner Hong Kong. Post the fall of his wicket, Balbirnie got good support from Harry Tector and together they took the Irish team over the line with another 50-plus stand.

Kinchit Shah To Paul Stirling OUT!
OUT! Direct hit and Kevin O'Brien is a goner! He gets a diamond duck! The over which began horribly for Hong Kong has ended brilliantly. A big wicket as Kevin can score very quick runs. This is outside off. Paul Stirling looks to sweep but it goes off the inner half towards backward square leg. The batters go for a run. Rana picks the ball up, a direct hit is needed and he hits the stumps at the striker's end. O'Brien continues running back towards the pavilion as he is well short. End of an action-packed first over, 10 runs and a wicket from it.

Kinchit Shah To Paul Stirling
FOUR! Sloppy, sloppy effort in the field! 10 runs from the first three balls. This is shorter again on middle, this is hit down to long on. The fielder there lets it through and a boundary results.

Kinchit Shah To Paul Stirling
Stirling misses out there! This is a nothing delivery. Short and on middle, it is asking to be hit. Stirling goes too hard at it and hence, mistimes it towards mid on.

Kinchit Shah To Paul Stirling
SIX! That is some way of getting of the mark! Wow! This is full and on middle, Stirling needs no sighters. He clears his front leg and tonks it over the bowler's head and over the long on fence.
We are back for the chase! Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien are Ireland's openers. The former will be on strike and he will be facing Kinchit Shah. Here we go...
