Ehsan Khan’s plan has successfully worked as the spinner decided to come up and bowl in the power-play overs. Ehsan Khan bowled a fuller delivery on the stumps at a slower pace of 93 kph. Ehsan took a superb catch while diving to his right in his followthrough after the Pakistani captain lazy-pushes the ball down the ground. Hong Kong made a significant early breakthrough.
The second over was an awestruck moment for team Hong Kong after Ehsan Khan sent Babar Azam back to the pavilion.
This is the second time when Hong Kong’s Ehsan Khan took the wicket of Babar Azam, having took the first wicket in the last ODI played.

Ehsan Khan has also took wickets of veterans like MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, and many others. Hong Kong might feel confident after sending back the crucial captain of Pakistan.
