During the first qualifier round match of World T20  Zimbabwe batsman, Hamilton Masakadza framed the strike and found his groove in the first 14 balls. However, he tossed away with a mistake a player of his experience should not have made. After pushing a Tanwir Afzal offering to mid off, Hamilton  casually too off for a single. Babar Hayat, however, swooped down on the ball and hit the stumps at the striker’s end. Masakadza had most of his body in the crease, but had not ground his bat, and his front foot was in the air when the stumps were broken. Hong Kong mustered half an appeal, after which umpire Aleem Dar sent it upstairs. Replays showed that Hamilton had made an amateur mistake. The Zimbabwe captain hung his head on his bat in disappointed, knowing a sprightly start was squandered.

Zimbabwe defeated Hong Kong by 14 runs at Vidarbha Cricket Association stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur. The African country batting first scored 158 with the help of Vusi Sibanda’s 59 and Elton Chigumbura’s 30. With the ball in hand Donald Tripano and Tendai Chatara took two wickets each that helped Zimbabwe to restrict Hong Kong for 144 for 6 in 20 overs.
