5:13 pm on 22 March 2014

Bangladesh sneaked into the Super-10 stage of the Twenty20 cricket World Cup, despite losing to minnows Hong Kong by two wickets in their last first-round match in Chittagong.

Bangladesh, sent into bat, fell to a modest total of 108 all out in 16 and a half overs before Hong Kong reached the target for the loss of eight wickets with two balls to spare.

Hong Kong needed to knock off the target in less than 14 overs to oust the home team from the tournament in favour of Nepal, who earlier in the day upset Afghanistan by nine runs.

Bangladesh join defending champions the West Indies, Pakistan, India and Australia in Group 2.
