WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Hong Kong beat Nepal by 10 wickets Sunday to lead Group A at the International Cricket Council World Cup qualifying tournament while Scotland shocked the United Arab Emirates, beating the top seeds by 53 runs.

Unbeaten Namibia continued to lead Group B narrowly on run-rate from the Netherlands who beat Papua New Guinea by 130 runs, inflicting PNG's first loss in three games.

Haseed Amjad took four wickets as Hong Kong bowled out Nepal for 150 in 49.3 overs while Irfan Ahmed made 86 not out and Waqas Barkat 56 not out as Hong Kong reached its winning total in 33.2 overs.

Calum MacLeod made 113 and Matthew Cross 88 in a 178-run opening partnership which helped Scotland to 265, batting first against UAE in a match shortened to 28 overs. UAE was all out for 212 with Ian Wardlaw taking 3-36.

The tournament involves 10 teams split into two groups of five. After a round-robin, three teams from each group progress to a Super Six and the two finalists qualify for the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
