Solid contributions with the bat from Carl Wright with 82 (100) and Sushil Nadkarni with 38 (37), and two wickets a piece for Kevin Darlington and Lennox Cush help Team USA knock over hosts Hong Kong in their opening match of the ICC World Cricket League division 3 tournament in 2011.

But the real star of the show was skipper and Man of the Match Steve Massiah who crafted an accomplished 97 not out to make sure his side chased down the 257 required for victory with nearly 2 overs to spare.

Match scores: Hong Kong 256/9 (50/50 ov); United States of America 257/3 (48.2/50 ov)
