10 wicket win impressive, infact the opener Nida Rashid had a better technique then Imran Farhat.
Congrats to the Behenjees of Pakistan.
Malaysia & Hong Kong winners on Day 1 of mens tournament.
Friends, I've started a group for all the WCL fans on facebook. So, who ever is interested pls join... Search "Non-Test Cricket Playing Nations!" in facebook. Thanks...
Cricket Is The Best Sport On Earth, It Deserves More Respect, More Partispating Nations & More Fans. Lets Do Our Best To Spread The Game, Friends.
Two Pakistans played International Cricket today. Guess this is a sporting history ;-) Anyways China played way better than I expected against Pakistan inspite of loosing with High margin. Srilanka could score 250+ in 2007 T20 WC against a lot experienced Kenya while China playing its 1st international match that too against a T20 World champions could manage to keep them below 200. Quite an achivement I say. A team like China scoring 55 against the pace attack of Pakistan is also not bad. (I knw this is more like Pak B squad but still) I was expecting Pak to score 200+ n china to fold below 20.
The Quarter Final set up is complete
QF1:- Pak V China (Pak already won it)
QF2:- BD V Malaysia ( Dream upset would be BD Loosing )
QF3:- Afg V HK (Afg will win)
QF4:- SL V Nep (Dream upset 2 would be Nepal winning )
then SF would be
Pak V Malaysia (Here I know an upset will never happen)
Afg V Nep (It will be tough, but most likely Afg will win it)
Nep Def Malay
Afg Def Pak
Expect the unexpected
I'm not sure how exactly you can give China any credit in this game - 1 of the Pakistan side has played internationally, and that too not successfully, so to call it a World Champion team is ridiculous.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I was fearing much worse for China against Pakistan. Regardless of whether it was the Pakistan B team or ZZZ team, given China's very short history in the game, it could have been very ugly!
Malaysia are playing quite will here against B.Desh 98/5 in 14 Overs. Hope they bat well too.
ACC should scrap 50 Overs asia cup & intraduce T20 Asia Cup:
India vs Nepal
Afg vs B,Desh
S.Lanka vs Hong Kong
Pakistan vs UAE
India vs Afg
B.Desh vs Nepal
S.Lanka vs UAE
Pakistan vs Hong Kong
India vs B.Desh
Afg vs Nepal
S.Lanka vs Pakistan
Hong Kong vs UAE
SF 1: GA1 vs GB2
SF 2: GB1 vs GA2
Final: SF1W vs SF2W
3rd Place: SF1L vs SF2L
All over in 10 days. Fast, competitive and thrilling.
Expand by 4 teams every 3rd edition:
2011 & 2013 Asia Cups: 8 teams
2015 & 2017 Asia Cups: 12 teams
2019 & 2021 Asia Cups: 16 teams.....
Got a potential to be like EURO CUP Football. ACC has to capitalize this opportunity to globalize the game.

Bangladesh have won their match against Malaysia. The win was handsome although it was a poor batting display from Bangladesh. Lost 7 wickets on their way to 150 and not one batsman could reach the 50 mark. They have to bat better if they want to get into the final. Again bowling seems to be the strength of this side.
1. Sri Lanka
8. Hong Kong
So the tournament can go
QF1:- SL V HK
QF2:- BD V Afg
QF3:- Ind V Oman
QF4:- Pak V UAE
SF1:-Winner QF1 V Winner QF2
SF2:-Winner QF3 V Winner QF4
or an alternative can be at 9 Team Tournament
Group B:-Ind,Afg,Hong Kong
Group C:-Pak,BD, Nepal
Top team from each group reach Group D
Winner group A, B & C and top 4th team (Based on pts, then Runrate)
Then the final
Omg that was soooo close. Srilanka almost lost there. Survived with 2 wickets left chasing 73 & 7 balls left. Cricket is becoming more n more competitive with lots of nations showing challenge with very little resources. Test Nations just should notice this & help them. If they manage to help Cricket will be a global sport in no time.
