India vs Hong Kong Tips


India are heavy favourites and should win with ease. My best bet is for Virat Kohli to find his top form again with a top score in the match.

Head to Head


India and Hong Kong have never previously met.

India Form


India managed to beat Pakistan in their Asia Cup opener and are now in prime position to qualify for the Super 4 stage.

Pakistan batted first in Dubai, scoring 147 runs. The total was below par but still reasonably competitive. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of India’s bowlers, taking 4-26 in four overs.

On a wicket that had something in it for the bowlers Pakistan squeezed their arch rivals. KL Rahul got a first ball dismissal while Rohit Sharma could only muster 12 runs.

Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja steadied the innings, scoring 35 runs each. It was however Hardik Pandya’s 33 off 17 balls that got India home to win by five wickets with two balls spare.

India Team News


India could make a change or two to give some players an opportunity. Among the batsmen they are likely to stay the same as players could use this as an opportunity to gain form.

Hong Kong Form


Hong Kong have done exceptionally well just to qualify for the Asia Cup. They won their last three matches which secured qualification.

After losing to Uganda, Hong Kong beat Singapore, Kuwait and lastly United Arab Emirates. Hong Kong chased down 147 runs against the latter to win by eight wickets with an over to spare.

Yasim Murtaza top scored with a magnificent 58 runs off 43 balls. He will once again be a key player against a strong Indian side.

Hong Kong Team News


It is widely expected that Hong Kong will remain unchanged from the side that beat the UAE a week ago.

Verdict

Virat Kohli is backed to top score for India after finding some form in his last outing. As my best bet I am tipping the former India captain to score over 28.5 runs.
