Pak vs Hk ( Who wil win )
While the Pakistani team lost its opening match against their arch rival India, PCT will be looking to make a comeback against Hong Kong. Because it’s a must win game for Pakistan to stay in the tournament.
If Pakistan loses this match then they’ll be eliminated out of the Asia Cup 2022. So, every Pakistani cricket fan must be having an eye on the Pakistan vs Hong cricket match.
Speaking about the stats, till to date, Pakistan and Hong Kong have played only 3 matches against each other and all of three were won by Pakistan. Though the format was ODI.
If we look back to the Asia Cup match 2018 match between Pakistan and Hong Kong, that match was one sided as Hong Kong team were all out on 116 and Pakistan easily chased that target. Imam-ul-Haq scored a fifty and Babar Azam scored 33 runs
There are some players from both sides who have capability to do something extraordinary for their team. Nizakat Khan and Babar Hayat from Hong Kong’s side.
The Pakistani side is a bit better with Babar and Rizwan being a good opening pair. Pakistan has some fire power in the middle order. With Iftikhar, Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali in the middle order, Pakistan can very well surprise Hong Kong with a big score if they choose to bat first.
Asif Ali and Iftikhar don’t have very good records against spinners. So, for Hong Kong to contain both of these players, they must bring spin bowling when any of these two come to bat. While both of these players will be looking to attack their pacers.
Talking about the bowling department, Naseem Shah surprised everyone by his performance against India. Nawaz also took 3 important wickets and Shadab has a very good economy rate and he too bowled really well against India. So, Pakistan has a very strong bowling department as well with Haris Rauf and Dahani also in the squad.
For Hong Kong to surprise Pakistan, they must take early wickets of Babar Azam and Rizwan. If they do so, the middle order of PCT can very well collapse.
Pitch as usual will be dry due to the warm weather in Dubai. Team batting first will have disadvantage and as the stats indicate, toss will be crucial as well. As for the prediction, Pakistan team looks very strong and lethal and they can beat Hong Kong as it will be a do or die match for Pakistani cricket team.
