Joy of six for Amjad

Haseeb Amjad’s stunning six wickets ensured Hong Kong continued their impressive preparation for the World Twenty20, which starts on Sunday, with a second win in two warm-up games, beating Netherlands by 27 runs in Chittagong.

The 26-year-old seamer, who returned 6-14 from 3.5 overs in the unofficial Twenty20 international, tore through the Dutch batting as only Stephan Myburgh’s 52 averted complete embarrassment.

Hosts Bangladesh comfortably saw off Ireland by 44 runs at Fatullah thanks to half-centuries from Shakib Al Hasan and captain Mushfiqur Rahim.

They shared an unbroken 116-run stand to lift the Tigers to 179 for three, which Ireland replied to with 135 for eight - skipper Will Porterfield top-scoring with 44.

Hamilton Masakadza’s 93 aided Zimbabwe’s seven-wicket defeat of Afghanistan at Chittagong.

Sharif Asadullah returned 3-15 as Nepal were limited to 95 all out. UAE recovered from losing their opening batsmen cheaply to win with seven deliveries remaining.
