Hong Kong women out of World Cup running
The Hong Kong women's team were making their international debut in a three match one-day series against Pakistan in Lahore, and with a place in next years World Cup Qualifier on the line, it was an important series.
But it ended in disapointment for Hong Kong, losing all three matches by big margins. The first game was lost by 230 runs, the second by 172 runs and the third by 246 runs. The only Hong Kong player to show any fight was Neisha Pratt, formerly of Northern Districts in New Zealand, who scored 52 in the second game.
It certainly wasn't a good series for Hong Kong, but it really was being thrown in at the deep end as far as an international debut goes. Playing against a Test playing nation with as much experience as Pakistan has was always going to be a tough ask. But Hong Kong will have learnt from this, and will hopefully be much improved when their next internationals come around.
