Indian cricket team will be up against Afghanistan in Asia Cup 2022

India did well to come out of a gruesome battle against Pakistan in their first encounter of the 2022. Now, playing againstHong Kong, they would be looking to iron out all the shortcomings, especially in the batting department.
The toss between India captain and skipper Nizakat Khan would occur at 07:00 pm IST at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Any captain winning the toss would look to field first. However, in India’s case, they would look to bat first. 

IND vs HKG: How will the teams shape 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, no significant changes are expected on the Indian side.

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 Predicted Playing 11

(c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik/Rishabh Pant (wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan/R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh

Hong Kong Predicted Playing 11

Nizakat Khan (c), Yasim Murtaza, Babar Hayat, Kinchit Shah, Aizaz Khan, Scott McKechnie (wk), Zeeshan Ali, Haroon Arshad, Ehsan Khan, Mohammad Ghazanfar, Ayush Shukla

Ind vs Hkg: Pitch Report

It was thought that the pitches in UAE will behave as they did in the last T20 World Cup in 2021. Though it is seen as chasing heaven, if the bowlers stick to the basics, the pitch will help them and the matches won’t turn out to be one-sided.
