ABOUT THE MATCH

Defending champions India play their first match of the tournament against minnows Hong Kong who have faced Pakistan already. The match up has a David vs Goliath feel to it but Goliath is expected to win this one.

Match Preview

In the 2008 Asia Cup as well, Hong Kong were unlucky to be in the same group as Pakistan and India, and ended up losing both matches. They lost by a mammoth 256 runs to India and if they can avoid such a comprehensive defeat this time, it would definitely be an improvement.

iconHong Kong Team News

In the absence of the rested Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma has been named skipper and he will look to shine in the tournament both as a batsman and as a captain. With 3 ODI double centuries under his belt, he will look forward to taking on the inexperienced Hong Kong bowling. But he has a tough decision to make while picking a middle order from KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey.

The spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will look to continue their exploits in limited overs cricket for India.

iconIndia Team News

Hong Kong will be pinning their hopes on skipper Anshuman Rath and Babar Hayat to take on the Indian bowlers. Spinners Nadeem Ahmed and Ehsan Khan will look to trouble the Indian batsmen on the turning tracks of Dubai.

Pitch Conditions

 

Just like the previous few days, another hot day is expected in Dubai with temperatures soaring to a maximum of 40 degree Celsius. Humidity will continue to play a factor with dew affecting the spin as the day and the pitch grow older.
