Hong Kong take on young Nepal in their opening qualifying round group A match of the ICC World Cup T20 schedule to be held today (Sunday) at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. The match kicks off at 7.30 pm. Hong Kong started their World Cup preparation with a winning note as they won both their warm-up matches. They beat Zimbabwe by four wickets in the first match and defeated Netherlands by 27 runs in the second match. On the other hand, Nepal stated their world Cup campaign losing to Ireland by five wickets and again suffered a six-wicket defeat to United Arab Emirates. This is Nepal’s maiden appearance in World T20 history, having turned out as the third best among the qualifiers from UAE in November last year. Nepal were ninth in the World Cup qualifiers in New Zealand this January, but they would like to replicate their form from the World T20 qualifiers from November. In all T20s, they have won 11 out of 19 games. Less than 18 years after playing their first competitive match, Nepal have reached the world stage by qualifying for the World T20. It is a massive occasion for the country and they have a serious cricket team to boot too. They were third in the qualification tournament, after defeating UAE in the playoff game.
