    India [285/7] beat Hong Kong [259/8] by 26 runs in the fourth match of the 2018 Asia Cup

    Overview

    Hong Kong v India
    Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
    Asia Cup, Group A
    Tuesday, 18 September, 15:30 Local, 11.30 GMT


    Hong Kong came into the Asia Cup main draw after coming through the qualifiers with flying colours. They were expected to have it tough against Pakistan and India in the group stage, and the first test didn't go too well – they were beaten comprehensively by Pakistan in their tournament opener, who first bowled Hong Kong out for 116 and then chased down the target quite comfortably with eight wickets in hand.

    Only four Hong Kong batsmen got into double figures and Pakistan overhauled Hong Kong's total in just 23.4 overs. But if that was tough, what awaits them in their next match is no sweeter, even if it comes against an Indian side sans Virat Kohli. The second-ranked side on MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings will be tough to beat.

    For Hong Kong, a lot depended on their captain Anshuman Rath, his opening partner Nizakat Khan, and senior pro Babar Hayat. But some disciplined bowling by Pakistan and lack of experience among the Hong Kong batsmen made it a one-sided contest. Rath and Khan scored 19 and 13, respectively, while Hayat managed just seven.

    Kinchit Shah (26) and Aizaz Khan (27), meanwhile, were the best for Hong Kong. There were other lapses too: Nizakat did not ground his bat while completing a run and was sent back by a direct hit, while three of Hong Kong's bowlers conceded in excess of five runs per over while defending just 117.

    For them, the best bet will be to forget the bad day in the field and come out fresh against Rohit Sharma and his men, who will be playing their first game of the tournament with some of them having just arrived in the UAE. Indeed, the best part for Hong Kong is that they have absolutely nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

    Under Sharma, India have the opportunity to try out different players in the middle order, most importantly the No.4 spot that has become a game of musical chairs of late.

    After Suresh Raina's disappointing show in England, Ambati Rayudu, who was originally in the squad for England before failing a fitness test, is back and is one of the contenders to take Raina's place.

    Another contender is Manish Pandey, who made a case for the ODI side after racking up 306 runs in his last four innings, and so is Dinesh Karthik, who must want to put his disappointments in England behind him. With Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan likely starters at the top, KL Rahul is expected to occupy the No.3 slot in the absence of Kohli.

    MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya should start in the middle order, with Jadhav likely to be slotted at No.6, and be a bit of an all-rounder with his right-arm off-spin, which has proved to be crucial for India in the past.

    "It is not settled, we all know about it, because there's been a lot of guys who have played at that position," said Sharma of India's headache for the No.4 spot.

    "Going forward we want everything to be settled, but it gives an opportunity to the guys to come and play the cricket they like to play and seal the spot. Nos.3 [for this tournament], 4, 6 are all up for grabs. All these guys are eyeing that.

    "Obviously, we want to give as many chances as possible to the guys to make sure the No.4 and 6 spot is sealed. As a team we're very much looking forward to that."

    India may look to try out Shardul Thakur and Khaleel Ahmed on the fast-bowling front in this game in order to test their bench for sterner challenges that may come later on in the tournament. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are the obvious choices to start as India's frontline spinners.

    Key players

    Anshuman Rath (Hong Kong): The 20-year-old Rath averages 50.33 in ODI cricket, which shows his prowess. Although he was troubled by the Pakistani left-arm fast bowlers in the first match, he will look to start anew against India, who have only one left-arm seamer in their midst. The Hong Kong captain will look to give his team a good start and lay a platform for the middle order to capitalise on.

    Rohit Sharma (India): The stand-in India captain has already declared that the Asia Cup is an important tournament for him personally, and in the absence of Kohli, a lot will rest on how the two most experienced batsmen, Sharma and Dhawan, go about their business. Sharma could aim to hit some form in the tournament opener ahead of the big-ticket clash against Pakistan on Wednesday.

    Conditions

    It is expected to hot and humid in Dubai, as usual, with the pitch assisting the batsmen, as has been the case in the two games that have been played there so far. The spinners will also play a key role throughout the game.

    Squads

    Hong Kong: Anshuman Rath (c), Aizaz Khan, Arshad Mohammad, Babar Hayat, Christopher Carter, Ehsan Khan, Ehsan nawaz, Cameron McAuslan, Scott McKechnie, Nadeem Ahmed, Nizakat Khan, Kinchit Shah, Jhatavedh Subramanyan, Tanwir Afzal, Waqas Khan

    India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Khaleel Ahmed, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Shardul Thakur

    Sure I would have wished so, if Kohli was also playing, so that Kohli & Shastri are both thrown out of their positions! But Rohit is master of minnows and flat tracks, so its not going to happen!

    Best time for HK to create an upset. Team IND is still recovering from their UK tour, players are demoralized, divided (between Kohli & Sharma), they are without their best batsman & regular captain .... and most importantly they are without their great team director, the think tank, brain of this team - Shastri.

    I hope IND wins toss & bats first, otherwise .....😜

    I think Bumrah should be kept fresh for tomorrow, so that we can also see a bit of Khaleel today! That's the only change I want between today & tomorrow. If Khaleel does very well, then he can play in place of Bhuvaneshwar!

    Rauyu and DK playing for 4th spot. Khaleel and Thakur given ago. Now it will be interesting to see if India will prefer Pandya over Thakur or Khaleel against Pakistan, if one performs well.

    Indeed - they already have decided to bowl first and backing themselves to chase whatever IND puts in conditions where batting first is like 50-100 runs added handicap.

    Don't worry my Pakistani friend, pitch is slow. 270-300 will be a good score.

    Pakistan plays in UAE every month. Indians in the UAE are getting a chance to see their team after 12 years, even if it's against HK. But the turn up is 25-28% attendance.

    Not saying Indians don't care about the Asia Cup. They do. But it's not that big a deal. A bilateral ODI win in Australia is a bigger deal to India than winning the Asia Cup for the 7th time.

    Why would you compare bi literal series with aus to asia cup? Ofcause it’s a bigger series in a series context to top sides goinf head to head. But Asia cup is growing, teams getting more challenging, Asia cup must be prioritised as it’s Asia cup where you can be champions of Asia. The way aome of you ind fans sound so arrogant as if BD, Pk, Afg will be easy roll over, a walk in the park like as if you’re playing against minnows of the 90s. Sure if Ind is fav they’ll still have to be at their best to win. This isnt 00s asia cup anymore, as you expected the 3 traditional sides to advance only. Looking at 4 Asia cup finals, Ind only made it to one whereas BD 2, which wasn’t expected in the 00s. Not saying it’s a big achievement making it to the final, what am saying is the challenge other teams giving harder and tougher to win, whatever the hype with you team and the fav tag might me. It’s lot challenging to win Asia cup now than ever before, it should be a tournament treated like as if has no importance, Asia is where crickets by far most fans are cricket is the proper home to some of these asian sides, asia keeps cricket alive. Asia cup is important for cricket, IMO!

    Yeah, Dhawan will be very tired, any chance of recovery or we should rule him out for tomorrow as cheap wicket? Can these cricket players recover within 12 hours?

    Yes, India will win this game....but is there any reason why their RR is below 6, with two wickets down, and 10 overs left.

    ODI cricket has changed. 320-330 is not a safe score anymore. England will get to 350-360+ totals in next years WC.

    Because are playing leisurely and don't intend to crush HK. There is no point wasting there energies against a nothing side in a meanigless match especially with a bigger match coming in some hours.
