The Asia Cup T20 tournament has entered its sixth game, and Pakistan will be taking on Hong Kong in its sixth game. India, who beat Hong Kong by 40 runs on Thursday, will play the winner of Pakistan vs Hong Kong. Here is a look at the playing XI for the match, as well as a prediction of the winner.
India beats Hong Kong by 40 runs
India beats Hong Kong by 40 runs in the sixth match of the Asia Cup T20, taking the series to 2-0. Virat Kohli scored his 31st T20I fifty, equalling Rohit Sharma’s total of 50+ runs. India also scored 78 runs in the death overs, the most against the West Indies this year. The win means that India has won three out of the last four matches against Hong Kong.
Virat Kohli scored 50 off 50 balls, while Suryakumar Yadav scored 68 off 26 balls for India. The pair contributed to India’s score of 192/2. The Indian batsmen made sure to keep the ball out of Hong Kong’s hands, as they restricted the visitors to 152/5 in their allotted 20 overs.
India will face the winner of Pakistan vs Hong Kong
India will face the winner of Pakistan v Hong Kong in the sixth match of the Asia Cup T20 in Sharjah. Both teams are coming off losses in their season openers. In the first game against India, Pakistan bowlers managed to concede just over seven runs per over, but the death bowling of Hong Kong is a cause for concern.
The winner of the match will advance to the super four stage. India is the defending champions of the Asia Cup T20. The match will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
India’s approach to Asia Cup T20
India’s approach to the Asia Cup T20 is likely to change, with Rohit Sharma adopting a new batting philosophy and Virat Kohli trying to reinvent himself. The two were a mainstay of the white-ball side for the past decade, but Kohli was unexpectedly dropped during the T20 World Cup.
Kohli has not scored a century in international cricket since November and has played only four Twenty20 games. However, there is still a lot of expectation around his return to the team. Kohli will also be playing his 100th T20 international match, making him only the second player in history to play at least 100 T20 international matches.
Bangladesh have struggled in the shortest format since winning the World Cup, but have brought in Sridharan Sriram as a technical director to fill in the gaps. Hong Kong, who won the qualifying tournament in Oman, will be another team to watch out for.
Khushdil Shah’s innings in T20I cricket
While Khushdil Shah is Pakistan’s most powerful hitter with the ball, he has yet to reach his potential in T20I cricket. His innings against India were timid and underwhelming, and his lack of intent was evident throughout.
Pakistan will hope that he can improve his performance in the next match against Hong Kong
Khushdil Shah was born in Bannu, North-West Frontier Province, on 7 February 1995. He is a Left Handed batsman and a Spin Left-arm orthodox bowler. He averages 12.6 runs per match in T20 and PSL, and 20.7 in DODI and DT20. He averages a boundary every 7.1 balls in T20 and a six every 16.8 balls.
Pakistan have won two of the last three Asian Cup T20 matches, and are the defending champions. India has only lost one Asia Cup match to Pakistan, and the two teams have not played a close match for several years. The match was decided in the final over, and Hardik Pandya took 3 wickets and struck a six off the fourth ball to win the game for India.
