Asia Cup 2022 India vs Hong Kong Highlights

India registers an easy 40-run win thanks to brilliant fifties from Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli. Hong Kong on their part did well to go past 150 with the bat.

The Indian bowlers were punished by the Hong Kong batters as Babar Hayat (41), Kinchit Shah (30) and Zeeshan Ali (26*) did well to add valuable runs to their statistics. For India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh and Ravindra Jadeja picked a wicket each while Nizakat Khan, the Hong Kong skipper was run out. 

Earlier in the evening, after being asked to bat first, India started slow, but thanks to an electrifying 68* off just 26 balls from Suryakumar Yadav and a reformed 59* off 44 balls from Virat Kohli took India to 192-2 in their 20 overs. 

India vs Hong Kong Player of the Match: Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav, who came to bat when India were unable to score quickly, stuck at 94-2 in 13 overs, stitched together an unbeaten stand of 98 runs with Kohli. Most importantly he himself scored a quickfire 68 off just 26 balls to push the Indian total to 192-2. He was therefore adjudged Player of the Match. 
 
India vs Hong Kong Toss

Hong Kong skipper Nizakat Khan won the toss and decided to bowl first against Rohit Sharma-led India at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in UAE. 

IND vs HKG: How have the teams shaped up?

The only change that India could make is to play Rishabh Pant in place of Dinesh Karthik. However, Karthik did not do anything silly to be discarded. Hence, India opted to rest Hardik Pandya and have given Rishabh Pant a chance eventually 

Hong Kong is an unknown commodity for India fans so it would be great to know that Nizakat Khan, their skipper, is a decent outswing medium-fast bowler. They have good wrist spinners in Ghazanfar and Yasim Murtuza. Kinchit Shah and Babar Hayat are their prime batters to look out for and most probably all of them would be part of the playing eleven in tomorrow’s game.

India Playing 11

Rohit Sharma(c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh

Hong Kong Playing 11
