    This is terrible commentary from Manjrekar.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Hong Kong's third and fourth seamers have both clocked 140km/h now. Bit raw but so much to work with.

    Second time watching him now and Khadka looks a class bat to me. Ranji teams should be watching.

    Hong Kong's catching really is laughably bad. They haven't got near a lot of these skied balls that full members teams would be swallowing easily.

    Make that a team double hat trick.

    Four wickets and a run in the last four balls.

    Gauchan has such a vicious arm ball; no-one's picking it and it's moving a mile.

    congrats to Bangladesh and Nepal on comfortable wins but both their opposition were useless(and that's being kind)..Was really disappointed at Afghanistan considering how well they played in the Asia cup over 50 overs...i didnt see HK bowl but i wished that i didnt see them bat either..i would have fancied my chances against that batting, our kids team would appear to have more talent...

    Nepal team was very excited about the whole thing, looking at their enthusiasm and commitment, you can feel that they want to be there, they want to excel and win, HK lacked that, but have promising bowlers in the team. I think Nepal will have a good future in the long run.

    I absolutely hate the attitude of Bangladeshis, first, Rahim said they want to take "revenge" when talking about their clash with Afghanistan. Secondly, the way some of their players were behaving, it was clear that they couldn't digest the fact that they were beaten comprehensively by Afghanistan in the Asia cup. And on Afghanistan's performance, its a T20, any team can have a bad day where they might get allout under 100, but they tried well with the ball, didn't just give it away too easily.

    Was pretty excited to see HK and Nepal, although its a T20, I wanted to see how good they are, Nepal seems to be a very impressive team. and Afghanistan will perform well, I think they have improved in a really short span of time, they'll progress well if they continue working hard like this.
