    Oman skipper, Zeeshan Maqsood, says he was worried when they were 42 for 6. He feels they gave their wickets away under pressure but Jatinder Singh and Naseem Khushi were excellent and their partnership was the turning point. Mentions they have one of the best pace attacks and Bilal was exceptional. States everybody bowled well and supported each other. Ends by saying all the hard work of the coaches, families and the players has paid off.

    Hong Kong skipper, Aizaz Khan, says it is disappointing they missed out. Admits that they lost the plot in the last five overs with the ball and in the Powerplay with the bat. Further adds they started off well with the ball and in the field but then leaked too many runs at the death.

    Man of the Match, Jatinder Singh says he's feeling amazing. Further adds all the hard work by them has paid off. Appreciates the way Bilal Khan bowled and says he was unplayable. Ends by telling that he likes to dig in so that was his aim to stay out there till the end and he thought they could defend 130.

    Hong Kong encountered King Kong in Bilal Khan! The left-arm pacer bowled a dream first spell. He along with Fayyaz Butt ran amok and removed the cream of Hong Kong's batting inside the Powerplay. They were 18/5 at one stage and needed someone to stand up and bail them out. Scott McKechnie took the responsibility on himself and formed an alliance with Haroon Arshad. They put together a 50-run stand and Hong Kong were in with a chance. The asking rate was never an issue for them but when McKechnie was trapped in front of the stumps in the 17th over, the writing was on the wall. They carried on to bat for 20 overs but never looked like overhauling the target.

    Talk about momentum! Oman were down and out while batting. But Jatinder Singh held one end to stroke a fabulous knock. He combined with Aamir Kaleem to steady the sinking ship and then came the partnership that provided the impetus and momentum. The pair of Jatinder and Naseem Khushi raised a quickfire half century stand to provide respectability to Oman's total. They carried that momentum into their bowling innings and rest, as they say, is history.

    Oman have pulled off a heist! Their coach is running in jubilation. The whole Oman squad is charging on the ground. They are in a huddle. Emotions pouring. What a win! Oman are flying to Australia! They are joyous! They are over the moon! What a performance from them! Reduced to 42/6 while batting, who would have thought that they will recover so well to trounce Hong Kong.

    Fayyaz Butt to Mohammad Ghazanfar

    Another dot to end! Now, the Oman coach can run onto the ground and he does so. Excellent scenes out there. Butt bangs it short and outside off, Ghazanfar swings and misses again. OMAN WIN BY 12 RUNS!

    0 19.5
    Fayyaz Butt to Mohammad Ghazanfar

    A dot! The Oman coach gets extremely excited, he comes down the steps and is now all ready to rush onto the field. He knows now Oman is over the line and the last ball is just a formality. A short ball outside off, Ghazanfar swings but misses.

    1 19.4
    Fayyaz Butt to Kyle Christie

    Just a single from the ball they needed more than a run! 13 needed now from 2 so unless there is an extra, Oman can't lose. Shorter and on off, this is pushed towards cover for one.
