  Welcome to our coverage of Hong Kong v Nepal, on Day 1 of the 2010 ACC Trophy Elite from KuwaitTemperature already in the high 20s, but fortunately there’s a mild breeze blowing from one side of the ground to the other which is going to help the players and the rest of us.

The toss happened a few minutes ago, Nepal’s captain Paras Khadka called corre4ctly and Nepal will bat.

“We’re looking for 240-250. it’s a good track but the outfiled’s terrible!”, says Paras.
