India vs Hong Kong (IND vs HK) match Prediction
If we see, Hong Kong’s team didn’t get much exposure to international cricket till now. They have only played 49T20 matches which is a very low number and they are going to be competing against the mighty Indian Team.
The same Indian team which defeated it’s arch rival Pakistan in it’s opening match of the Asia Cup 2022. Hardik Pandya was MVP of the match against Pakistan and he can very well repeat the same performance against Hong Kong as well.
The Indian Team is looking in very good touch. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, India has lost only 6 T20 matches and won 30 out of 36. India has a very balanced side. India has a very strong middle order as well. As far as the bowling department is concerned, Bhuvneshwar Kumar can take early wickets and put Hong Kong’s team in a difficult situation. Arshdeep is another new talent of the Indian Team.
The players to look for in the match of India vs Hong Kong are Pandya, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Arshdeep while the Hong Kong side’s best batsmen are Nizakat Khan and Babar Hayat with an average of 29.5 and 19.95 respectively. These aren’t very great numbers but that’s what Hong Kong got while in the bowling department Yasim Mirza is the best they got with the economy rate of 5.8. Nizakat Khan can bowl as well.
The Dubai pitch has aided the chasing side once again as India chased easily against Pakistan. So, without a doubt, the teams winning the toss will look to chase. 143 is the average first innings score.
So, all in all, India is the favorite team for this contest as they have got a well balanced team with good bowling and power hitters. India can easily win this match but still they shouldn’t take Hong Kong lightly as this is cricket and anything can happen.
