  • Hong Kong have made one change from the XI yesterday, Rachel Eames makes way for Li Yan Pui
  • Qatar have made two changes from the XI yesterday, Feba Beilbey and Aisha Rehman coming in for Rechita Rajesh and Harshita Rastogi
  • Captain to captain to start, Mariko Hill RMF of Hong Kong to Yasmeen Gul LHB
  • FOUR WIDES (Hong Kong bowled more than 50 yesterday) are followed by a WICKET as Mariko Hill gets one past the groping bat of Yasmeen Gul and Qatar are 4 for 1, five balls gone
  • Kiki Kan RM from the Ahmadi End, Hiral Agarwal the opener on strike, Huda Malik (top-score with 20 yesterday in Qatar's defeat to Kuwait) with her in the middle
  • What do those Australian grade coaches say about bowlers? 'Good lines'? Mariko Hill has better lines today than yesterday, on and around off-stump for the most part and is on and around off-stump as a matter of course
  • Hasn't got that stutter before her delivery stride today, Mariko Hill, far more fluid, and is bowling the better for it, Qatar 14 for 1 in the third over
  • Huda Malik thumps a drive past Kiki Kan in her follow-through, FOUR to long-off and Qatar are 20 for 1 at the start of the fourth over
  • Qatar 21 for 1 after 4 oversthird man and cover on the boundary for Mariko Hill now, Huda Malik looks like she'll drive anything pitched up
  • WICKET Mariko Hill traps Hiral Agarwal in front of the stumps, lbw, and Qatar are 21 for 2 in the 5th over
  • WICKET, two in two balls, Rizpha Bano has her off-bail trimmed by a beauty and Qatar are 27 for 3 after 5 overs. MAriko Hill will be on a hat-trick at the start of her next over

  • Amanda Kwok replaces Kiki Kan 3-0-13-0 at the Ahmadi End
  • Don't know if oil has been put on, but Chan Sau Ha is pretty slippery today, tossing the ball up, landing on a length and finding bounce and a bit of turn, two runs off her second over, Qatar 42 for 3 after 9 overs
  • Qatar 49 for 3 after 10 overs, Huda Malik 18*
  • Big WICKET, Huda Malil's bowled by one that comes in, Chan Sau Ha strikes and Qatar are 51 for 4 after 11 overs

  • DRINKS - Hong Kong better in the field today, though Qatar are not quite the opposition that Bhutan were yesterday. Bowers have been straighter and the apprentice 'keeper Dominique McCusker has therefore had it easier. Qatar will be hoping to get to 100

  • WICKET off the last ball, Aaliya lbw as Mariko Hill finishes with 5-0-32-4, but its been Manali Kadam's day, 42*, survived a run-out chance on 29, but kept going, spanked anything wayward and kept the good balls out, Qatar finsih on a challenging 130 for 8, Hong Kong's top order are going to have to go some
  • Annie Ho and Dom McCusker the Hong Kong openers are out in the middle, Yasmeen Gul SLA, Qatar' s captain with the new ball, Hong Kong's target is 131 in 25 overs
  • Three off the first over from the blue bandanned Qatar captain and Hong Kong are 3 for 0 (Target 131, 25 overs)
  • Manali Kadam LB (also in a blue bandanna) can do no wrong today WICKET - knocks back Annie Ho's middle stump with her second ball, Hong Kong 3 for 1 in the second over
