Kuwait u19 opened their World Cup qualification campaign with a resounding victory over tournament favourites Hong Kong

Having been asked to bowl first, an aggressive opening spell from openers Hamza Qureshi and Akhil Sajeev reduced HK to 60/5; before a pair of wickets each for spinners Hamoud Jandu and Abdul Sadiq and a further wicket for Faez Qureshi wrapped up the HK innings for 118. Govind Sunil Kumar taking three stunning catches at short cover under the helmet.

Needing to negate a potentially tricky 40-minute period prior to lunch, openers Meet Bhavsar and Gokul Sunil Kumar got things going with contrasting innings in a 60-run stand. Meet hitting three consecutive boundaries in the first hour with Gokul serenely seeing off the new ball. Both fell within 6 balls of each other bringing skipper Nomaan Budroo and Abdul Sadiq to the crease. The paid showed all their experience as the guided Kuwait to the winning target without incident with 24.4 overs to spare, sealing an emphatic victory.

Akhil Sajeev Nair was adjudged man of the match with barely believable figures of 10-4-3-12.
