The Hong Kong World Sixes 2017 got underway at the Kowloon Cricket Club in Hong Kong. 12 matches were scheduled to be played on the opening day of the tournament with the first encounter between hosts Hong Kong and South Africa. The 5-over, 6 wickets a side match unfolded on expected lines, the Hong Kong side managed to post 95 runs in their quota of overs and it proved little challenging for the Proteas as they nailed it with 4 wickets and 2 balls to spare.

As the day progressed bigger teams like Australia found it difficult to beat rather weaker opponents. The Bangladesh team which comprises of the U19 cricketers from the country has put up a decent show and if they continue to do well, they might as well land up a spot in the final four.
