World T20, 5th Match, First Round Group A: Afghanistan v Hong Kong

Hong Kong has won the toss and elected to bat.
 
Last match Afghanistan lost a wicket first ball and this time they take a wicket first ball.

Hong Kong 0/1.
 
A good start by HK! skipper trying to lead from the front and attack bowlers.
 
Dawlat in the mood to murder this kid on field ;)
 
It was bowled at 142 KPH, would have caused more than just tooth loss
 
This is a really good start by Hong Kong

Wonder if they will open with Najibullah like I suggested, and keep MS down the order, they already dropped the two seniors and the brother sifarish from the team, so maybe somebody clearly values my opinion :))
 
Going by the names most of the HK players are Pakistani expats.

At least 8 out of the current playing 11 are pakistani born players and if we look at their squad of 15 thn there are a total of 11 players out of 15.

Another interesting fact is that a total of 36 Pakistani born players are participating in this World T20 and representing 6 different teams.

This is a pretty big total for a weak and shaky Afghan batting line up, they will certainly be better than the last day but, they seem to not even care anymore, laughing in the field after fielding mistakes, the only player looking angry after every mistake is Samiullah.

Horrible attitude, and it does not help when Kabir Khan is laughing during fielding mistakes either. Horrible and very unprofessional from the team. I wonder if he even gave out to them after the shameless and gutless batting performance against Bangladesh.

@OsmanSamiuddin: As @anandvasu mentioned, Afghanistan a bit cocky today. Bit of a strut in tourn generally. Chimes with what PCB official said recently 1/2

Like I said above then, anybody with good observation skills can see that. It is not good, this is when you know that younger hungry players are a must
 
all the praise which Afghanistan got will be lost today i hope not
 
Afghanistan have clearly lost the script. Looks like the win over Bangladesh in the Asia Cup got to their heads.

Having said that, I think this game is still 50-50. Perhaps tilted slightly towards Afghanistan.
 
Brainfaart by Shehzad but thanks to Hong Kong fielding :)))
 
Aizaz Khan is the only Pakistani in this team who was born in Hong Kong but still his fielding shows he is pure Pakistani blood ;)
 
When Shahzad plays sensibly he is a good player, it is sad he had such a massive brainnfart against Bangladesh
 
This just depresses me :( he can bat like this and would rather just do something stupid first ball, instead of seeing himself in, this is a very good pitch for bowling
 
Hong Kong the Pakistan E team is showing full fielding skills :))
 
LMAO this Aizaz Khan is RUBBISH

Dropped catch
Free hit 6
Another 6
 
And another 6

This guy single handedly lost HK the game lool
 
Shafiqullah is a good player, was unfairly given out vs Bangla when it hit his thigh and was given out caught behind right away by the andha umpire. Plays sensibly, technical player like most Afghan youngsters. I would like to see more of the U19 crop being played in the national team.

Shafiq finishes it with a fourr and also gets his fifty !

What a knock from this man !
 
I like Shahzad, looks like a lovable guy (and his Facebook account is full of pictures with my cricketing idol, Wasim and other Pak players lol)
 
Good win.. i hope we win the next match too.
