Pakistan bowled out Hong Kong for a record-low 38 runs and achieved its biggest victory in a Twenty20 at the Asia Cup on Friday.

Pakistan sealed the last berth in the Super 4 stage with a massive 155-run win and will face India again on Sunday. India won their group game by five wickets.

Shadab Khan bagged 4-8 with his sharp googlies and left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz snapped up 3-5 as Hong Kong was dismissed in 10.4 overs to lose the last group game and bow out of the event.

The highest score in Hong Kong’s total was the 10 extras.

Mohammad Rizwan anchored Pakistan to 193-2 with an unbeaten knock of 73 off 57 balls after captain Babar Azam fell in the third over, brilliantly caught-and-bowled by Hong Kong offspinner Ehsan Khan.

Fakhar Zaman made a watchful 53 and shared a 116-run stand for the second wicket with Rizwan. Pakistan stuck to its template of not losing wickets in the first half of the innings before pushing the scoring rate in the death overs.

“Very nice victory for us,” Babar said. “The wicket was keeping low, but the way we batted and finished was outstanding.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan are the first team to win a men’s T20I by 150+ runs, without registering a 200+ total on the board.
