HK vs IND Dream11 Match Predictions
Asia Cup, 2018
Hong Kong vs India, Match Preview
Team India kick starts its Asia Cup Campaign against Hong Kong who are on the verge of getting knocked in the group stage. Coming after facing 8 wickets loss against Pakistan in the first match, this is a must win game for Hong Kong to stay alive.
The same was the case in the 2008 Asia Cup when India, Pakistan and Hong Kong were placed in the same group and Hong Kong was knocked out after losing both the games.
After winning the toss, Hong Kong chose to bat first and could only muster 116-10 in 37.1 overs. Pakistan chased down the target easily with 8 wickets remaining and 26.2 overs to spare.
Hong Kong became the sixth team to participate in the tournament after coming from Qualifiers. It will be interesting to watch if they can put some contest against one of the favorites- India. India will be without the services of regular Skipper Kohli and will be led by Rohit Sharma.
Venue- Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
