Inserted in, Pakistan caught Hong Kong at their wits end with a belligerent display of slog-overs power-hitting, going from 104/1 at the end of 14th over to finish with a monstrous 193/2. Chasing the tall total in a winner-takes-all contest, Hong Kong raised the truce flag against Naseem Shah's express pace in the powerplay and Shadab Khan's googlies later on. They collapsed to 38 all out, handing Pakistan their biggest victory in T20I history.

Brief scores: Pakistan 193/2 in 20 overs (Mohammad Rizwan 78*, Fakhar Zaman 53, Khushdil Shah 35*; Ehsan Khan 2-28) beat Hong Kong 38 all out in 10.4 overs (Shadab Khan 4-8, Mohammad Nawaz 3-5) by 155 runs.
