We have a serious possibility of a win this year. And if we can't win either against Zimbabwe or West Indies, then that win could come against Hong Kong.

So we should better improve our ODI performance, SOON, or the bitter memory of Canada will hunt us down again.

Hong Kong is already ahead of us in one aspect. Their Cricinfo website looks really informative by just glancing at so many things at one time!
