Bangladesh were off to a blistering start in the ACC Emerging Teams Cup, thrashing Hong Kong by nine wickets at BKSP in Savar Thursday.

Chasing a below-par 165, the men in red and green reached their destination in just 24.1 overs, opener Soumya Sarkar leading the way with a fine unbeaten 74-ball 84, featuring nine fours and three sixes.

Player of the match Soumya put on 94 for the opening wicket with Mohammad Naim, who made a run-a-ball 52, to lay the platform for the thumping win.

Captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto was not out on a run-a-ball 22 alongside Soumya.

The visiting side were earlier restricted to 164 for the loss of nine wickets in their stipulated 50 overs, after being asked to bat first.

Right-arm seamer Sumon Khan bagged four wickets while off-spinner Mahedi Hasan picked up a couple.

Hong Kong middle-order batsman Harron Arshad top-scored for his side with a 33-ball 35.

In the other Group B match in Cox’s Bazar, Pakistan outclassed Afghanistan by eight wickets.

Meanwhile in the two Group A matches on the opening day of the tournament, India picked up a seven-wicket win against Nepal in Savar while Sri Lanka suffered a shock four-wicket loss at the hands of unfancied Oman in Cox’s Bazar.
