The news from the middle is that Hong Kong has won the toss and elected to bat first against Afghanistan. 

Afghanistan's batting will once again revolve around Mohammad Shahzad, Samiullah Shenwari and Najibullah Zadran.

In the bowling departement, Dawlat Zadran is expected to share the workload with Gulbadan Naib.

Hong Kong batsmen may not stack up big numbers, but they really can't be ruled out in this shortest format of the game.

Only Anshuman Rath could provide some resistance to the innings. Kinchit Shah gave some support to Anshuman but even he fell like the others. Mohammad Nabi was the man of the hour as he gave figures of 4/20 . Will Hong Kong come back and defend this meek total or will Afghanistan finish this in style? Lets wait and find out.

Hong Kong finish this one with hiccups. Atkinson along with Campbell started the innings with good pace but couldn't hold it for long. With the introduction of Mohammad Nabi into the attack, wickets started tumbling. In the Powerplay, it seemed the score would go past 130 but it did not happen.
