Usman (3/19) was the highest wicket-taker, while Shadab Khan (2/31) and Hasan Ali (2/19) snapped two wickets apiece and Faheem Ashraf accounted for one as Pakistan thoroughly exposed the weakness of Hong Kong, who won the 2018 Asia Cup Qualifier to make it to the tournament.
Electing to bat, Hong Kong failed to put up a resistance, losing wickets in regular intervals to end up with a lowly score.
It started with a run-out as Nizakat Khan (13) walked back to the pavillion after failing to make ground with Shadab Khan knocking the stumps off from point in the 5th over.
Hasan Ali then got into action, removing Christopher Carter (2) cheaply in the 14th over. Looking to chip it over extra cover, Carter ended up giving an easy catch to Imam-ul-Haq as Hong Kong lost their third wicket.
Hayat couldn't pick up Shadab's googly and was stumped by a huge margin by Sarfraz when the batsman danced down the pitch. One ball later, another googly earned Shadab another wicket as Ehsan was trapped in front of wicket.
Kinchit and Aizaz then shared a crucial 53-run partnership for the sixth wicket to take Hong Kong closs to the 100-mark.
Last specialist batsman Kinchit too was back to the hut after he hit a Hasan Ali ball to Shadab at backward point.
