Hong Kong beat Bermuda

Bermuda fell to another crippling defeat, this time to Hong Kong, to leave themselves staring down the barrell of not advancing to the ICC Twenty20 World Cup.

A century second wicket partnership between Hong Kong captain James Atkinson and Irfan Ahmed helped Hong Kong hand the Island another defeat to what many would feel is inferior competition.

The two batsmen put on 113 runs for the second wicket in 72 balls as Hong Kong, chasing 162 for victory, achieved the target with eight wickets and 15 balls to spare.

Winning the toss and electing to bat first for the second time in two days, the Islanders were sent on their way courtesy of skipper David Hemp (43), Janeiro Tucker (31) and Dion Stovell (29) to reach their mark of 161 in their 20 overs.

Although they posted a defendable total, Ahmed (50) and Atkinson (87) built the game winning when Atkinson joined Ahmed partnership to steer their side to what turned out to be a comfortable victory.

Kamau Leverock and Tucker were responsible for taking the two Hong Kong wickets.
