'It's been a long time coming'

Scotland captain Preston Mommsen: "It's huge - it's been a long time coming. The boys are absolutely chuffed to get on the board. There will be a few cold ones cracked open tonight.

"We've got to make sure we keep qualifying for these tournaments. Hopefully when we come back this is the opening of the floodgates."

Captain's view

Hong Kong captain Tamwir Afzal: "We will take positives from this, regroup and work hard on our weaknesses."

'A great day for Scottish cricket'

Man of the match Matt Machan, who took 2-26 and made 15 not out: "It's a great day for Scottish cricket. We've got the monkey off our back and we're very happy.

"We haven't played our best cricket this week. It's always tricky with Duckworth-Lewis but we got the job done."

Scorecard - Scotland win by 8 wickets

Scotland need 76 to win off 10 overs

News update: Play is about to resume and Scotland have 10 overs in which to chase 76. We'll bring the highlights of a truncated chase as they happen.

News from Nagpur... the covers are coming off. Play must resume by 17:22 GMT - by which time we would have a five-over game. That would leave Scotland needing 42 to win.

Rain stops play... again

Heavy rain again in Nagpur and the covers are back on.

Player's view

Scotland's Matt Machan, who took 2-26: "We would have taken 128 at the start of the day, so job done for the first half.

"We've got to get ahead of the rate early on. It would be nice to get off to a good powerplay and see it home at the end."



Hong Kong manage seven runs off the final three balls of the innings to post 127-7. So Scotland need 128 to claim their first win of the World T20 - indeed their first at a major global tournament.
