Sportkseeda's live coverage for the second game of the day can be followed here.
...
Next up, we have another qualifying game from Group B between Afghanistan and Scotland to held at the same venue, in Nagpur.
...
So, Zimbabwe win their first game and would take on Scotland on March 10 in their next game. Hong Kong would clash with Afghanistan on the same date.
...
"We just had to drag the game till the end. Credit to the guys who stuck out with the bat," says the man of the match, Sibanda.
...
Vusi Sibanda is the player of the match for this game for his knock of 59 off 46!
...
Donald Tiripano and Tendai Chatara picked up two wickets each for Zimbabwe, while Wellington Masakadza and Sikandar Raza picked up one wicket a piece.
...
Atkinson got his maiden T20I fifty as well, scoring 53, while Tanwir Afzal finished unbeaten on 31!
...
Atkinson tried his best, and so did captain Afzal with his late hitting, but the Zimbabwe bowlers kept their nerves by bowling a plethora of slower balls and making the full use of the slowness of the pitch.
...
So, too close, yet too far for Hong Kong. They fell 14 short in the end.
