In 2014, Jamie Atkinson captained the Hong Kong team in their first global tournament, the World T20 in Bangladesh, defeating the hosts in their final match after two losses. His highest score was 31 from 20 balls against Afghanistan in Chittagong.
In May 2015 he stepped down as Hong Kong's captain citing lack of form as his main reason. The decision came after he led the side in a 59-run win over Namibia in which he made an unbeaten 37-ball 64 in a T20 match. He is Hong Kong's most successful player with a win over Bangladesh at home and gaining ODI status in span of three and a half years.
