Hong Kong’s cricket captain, Kary Chan, achieved a historic milestone by setting the record for the highest individual score in the history of the Asian Games. Chan’s exceptional performance helped Hong Kong secure a resounding victory over Mongolia, winning by a staggering margin of 180 runs and securing a spot in the quarter-finals.

In a remarkable display of batting prowess, Hong Kong posted a record-breaking score of 202 runs, marking the team’s highest-ever total in T20 cricket. This impressive achievement also stands as a Games record.

As a result of their emphatic win during the 19th Asian Games, Hong Kong earned a spot in the quarter-finals. Notably, their victory allowed them to avoid facing formidable opponents like India and Pakistan in the next round. Instead, they will compete against Bangladesh in the quarter-finals, scheduled for Friday, September 22.

Under the guidance of coach Andy Cottam, the Hong Kong cricket team advanced to the last eight with a crucial victory in their qualification match. They not only scored a remarkable 202 runs but also limited Mongolia to a mere 22 runs.

Captain Kary Chan played a pivotal role in this triumph by scoring an outstanding 70 runs, setting a new record for the highest individual score by a batter in the history of the women’s tournament. The previous record of 63 runs was held by Japan’s Ema Kuribayashi, achieved in 2010 against Nepal.

Chan’s stellar performance not only propelled Hong Kong to their highest-ever total of 202 runs but also secured the highest team score in the Games.

In the upcoming quarter-final clash, Hong Kong remains determined to face top-tier opponents like India and Pakistan, eager to demonstrate their skills and meet the challenges head-on. Despite the formidable competition, the team’s spirit and ambition remain unwavering as they aim for success in the Asian Games.
