Match Preview

India will be facing Hong Kong for the 4th match of the Asia Cup today. The match will be taking place in Dubai. India have won their first game of the tournament against arch-rivals Pakistan. They are now eyeing a spot in the Super 4 stage and they will qualify for it if they beat Hong Kong in today’s match.

Hong Kong on the other hand will want to upstage India so that they don’t get a direct qualification into the Super 4 stage. They have done well in the Qualifiers of the Asia Cup and will want to get their first win in the tournament today.

India have a very strong and star-studded lineup and Hong Kong will have to use its wits to try and defeat India today. Hong Kong has qualified for the Asia Cup for the second time in a row.

Hong Kong have been playing consistent cricket and that’s why they can face a stiff challenge for India today. Although both teams are placed very much apart in the ICC rankings, it will still be a pretty decent match between these two sides.

Pitch Report

If we talk about the pitch at Dubai, then we can expect a game in the range of 160-170 runs today. India’s batters have to step up their game slightly today as they had an average performance against Pakistan with the exception of Hardik Pandya who is in red-hot form. The boundaries are very short here which allows batsmen to take full charge of the game. Bowlers will be getting some seam movement and extra bounce from the pitch. But, spinners will not have any efficacy as they will not get much support from the surface. Overall, chasing would be a good option in today’s match.

Top Picks for IND vs HKG Dream11 Match:

India

Virat Kohli

Kohli found back some of his form against Pakistan in the last match where he scored 35 runs. He will want to contribute even more runs in today’s match against Hong Kong.

Suryakumar Yadav

SKY did not play well in the last match as he scored only 18 runs and was rather slow in making them. He will have to play better in today’s game and stay longer at the crease for India.

KL Rahul

Rahul has still not found his form yet as he was dismissed for a duck in the last match. He needs to give India a solid start today otherwise lose his place to another opener.

Hong Kong

Nizakat Khan

The skipper of Hong Kong is an all-rounder and was excellent in the qualifiers. He will be hoping to produce the same performance with the bat and ball for his team today.

Yasim Murtaza

Murtaza was a key player for Hong Kong in the qualifiers. He was the leading run-scorer as he made 130 runs in the three matches he played and has an average of 43.33 and a strike rate of 125. He also picked up three wickets with an average of 18.

Ayush Shukla

Shukla was good in the qualifier matches as he scalped 4 wickets and has an average of 11.75. In the last qualifier game against the UAE, Shukla picked up 3 wickets and gave away 30 runs. Today, Hong Kong will be expecting a similar performance from him.
