Hong Kong vs Nepal Head to Head, 2018 Asian Cup Qualifier

Having a look at their past 5 clashes, it comes to the fore that Nepal have enjoyed dominance over Hong Kong on a historical scale, winning four matches against Hong Kong. While one might think that Hong Kong kept their self-esteem intact by winning that remaining one clash, that is not the case as out of the only match that was not won by Nepal was abandoned.
Looking at the past 5 clashes between Hong Kong and Nepal, one can see a pattern, which started with Hong Kong struggling in international cricket and being absolutely decimated by Nepal in early 2010s. While the clashes in 2010, 2012 and 2014 were won by Nepal by a margin of over 100 runs, it was only in 2017 that Hong Kong gave a tough fight to Nepal, still losing the match however, but by a margin of much lesser degree.
Latest cricket news: Hong Kong learn lessons from defeat against Malaysia, apply it against Singapore
Hong Kong faced an early defeat in the 2018 Asia Cup Qualifier against Malaysia, but didn’t let it go in vain as they learnt important lessons from the loss, and applied those against Malaysia in their subsequent clash on August 30.
Hong Kong’s Nadeem Ahmed, who’s four-wicket haul went in vain in the previous clash against Malaysia, displayed a great level of confidence and consistency in the clash against Singapore by claiming another four-wicket haul, helping his side to register their first win of the 2018 Asia Cup qualifier.
Hong Kong captain Anshuman Rath had won the toss against Singapore and had opted to bowl. His opening bowlers – Tanwir Afzal and Ehsan Nawaz – started their attack and claimed four quick wickets. While Singapore made a slight recovery in the middle, Nadeem Ahmed’s left-arm spin laid waste to Singapore’s batting lineup, wrapping them up for 150.
The chase for Hong Kong did not start on a good note, as Anshuman Rath and his opening partner Cameron McAulsan were dismissed in the first couple of overs. However, with small yet significant contribution from the likes of Babar Hayat, Nizakat Khan and Kinchit Shah made sure that Hong Kong register their first win and get going to challenge the other teams in the 2018 Asia Cup Qualifier.
This particular backdrop would make it interesting and exciting to follow how Hong Kong perform against Nepal in their upcoming match, as Nepal have been dominating Hong Kong from the past several years.
