Haseeb’s six-for gives Hong Kong 27-run win

Netherlands goes down in ICC World T20 warm-up tie despite stellar work from its bowlers

Haseeb’s six-for gives Hong Kong 27-run win - Cricket News
Haseeb Amjad’s dream spell of 6 for 21 in 3.5 overs helped Hong Kong register a 27-run win against Netherlands.
At the innings break during Hong Kong’s clash with Netherlands in a warm-up match of the ICC World Twenty20 2014 on Friday (March 14), the latter’s decision to field at MA Aziz Stadium in Chittagong appeared an excellent one.
With its bowlers performing in tandem, Hong Kong had been shot out for 127 in 19.5 overs and Netherlands was in with a great shot of pulling off a win. But Haseeb Amjad’s dream spell of 6 for 21 in 3.5 overs upset all calculations, and Hong Kong bowled Netherlands out for exactly 100 in 16.5 overs to register a 27-run win, its second consecutive finish on the right side of the result. 
Stephan Myburgh fought a lone battle for Netherlands with a 38-ball 52 that included three boundaries and as many sixes. But Myburgh departed in the 12th over when he was trapped in front by Nizakat Khan and with Ben Cooper and Peter Borren, the captain, the only others to get into double figures – scoring 18 each – Netherlands fell well short of the small target.
Earlier, Hong Kong, after being reduced to 30 for 3, rode on a 56-run stand between Mark Chapman (50) and Munir Dar (18) to reach a strong position, but after they fell, the total suddenly slipped to 94 for 7. 
It took a late surge from Aizaz Khan (10 in 7 balls) and Amjad (16 in 14 balls) to help the team cross the 100-run mark.
Timm van der Gugten returned figures of 3 for 17 in four overs. Ahsan Malik finished with 3 for 25 off 3.5 overs, while Logan van Beek chipped in with two wickets.
