Hong Kong openers Nizakat Khan and Anshuman Rath put Malaysia’s bowlers to the sword on Saturday in a crushing 94 run win at Tin Kwong Road Recreation Ground. The pair put on a mammoth 238 for the first wicket in their one-day clash, with Khan hammering 111 off 129 balls and Rath 130 off 120. The captain and his predecessor piled on the runs in 40.3 overs, before Rath was finally caught by Muhammad Amir off the bowling of Fitri Sham. Sham accounted for Khan soon after with the score on 264, and while Babar Hayat added 38, the home side lost seven wickets for 54 runs to finish on 318 for seven. Vijay Unni was the pick of the Malaysia bowlers, taking three for 48 from his 10 overs, while Muhammad Wafiq also picked up two wickets. In response to the imposing total, Malaysia limped to 30 for three, with Ehsan Khan and Ayush Shukla ripping out the middle order. Unni did his best to steady the ship, but his 100 was in vain, as the visitor’s limped to 221 for seven in their 50 overs. Ehsan Khan finished with three for 22 from nine overs, while Shukla’s two wickets came at a cost of 26 runs. Hong Kong now face Kuwait on Sunday in the final of the triangular tournament.
