Hong Kong’s second one-day match against Nepal at Mission Road scheduled for Sunday has been postponed until tomorrow after the Hong Kong Observatory raised the No 8 signal because of Typhoon Khanun.

The hosts won the first match by 83 runs on Friday to boost their hopes of finishing in the top four of the ICC World Cricket League Championship standings. Hong Kong are in fourth place of the eight-team standings after their victory, up from fifth.

They have 13 points from 11 matches, just one point ahead of fifth-placed Kenya but with a game in hand against Nepal.

Hong Kong face Papua New Guinea in two matches in November to complete their WCLC programme. The top four teams have a chance to playing in next year’s qualifiers for the 2019 ICC World Cup.
