Shakti Gauchan who finished with the bowling figures of 4-0-9-3, bagged the Man of the Match award. He was very pleased with his performance and said that he will look to carry his form forward. That's all we have from this match. Do join us tomorrow to catch all the action. Cheers!!!
Nepal have registered an emphatic win over Hong Kong to kick start their campaign in grand style. They batted well to post a challenging total on the board and then their bowlers got into the act and didn't allow Hong Kong to settle down. Wickets fell at regular intervals and the spinners from Nepal, Basant Regmi and Shakti Gauchan were too hot to handle.
