India faces Hong Kong in its Asia Cup 2022 Group A match in Dubai on Wednesday.
TOSS: Hong Kong wins toss, opts to bowl
India XI: Rohit Sharma(c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik(w), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
Hong Kong XI: Nizakat Khan(c), Yasim Murtaza, Babar Hayat, Kinchit Shah, Aizaz Khan, Scott McKechnie(w), Zeeshan Ali, Haroon Arshad, Ehsan Khan, Ayush Shukla, Mohammad Ghazanfar
Here is a look at the predicted playing XI for tonight’s IND v HK match.
Team Composition - India
India, having edged out Pakistan on Sunday, will look to finish its group stage campaign with a big win.
Wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik, who was picked ahead of Rishabh Pant on Sunday, could get another go. Karthik could not show his finishing power, having faced just a single ball in the chase.
India could use this fixture as a chance to experiment with its playing eleven. The likes of batter Deepak Hooda and spinner R. Ashwin, both of whom sat out in the previous match, could get a look in.
India predicted XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant/Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik/R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
Team composition - Hong Kong
Having secured three wins in as many matches in the qualifies, Hong Kong will most likely retain its squad from its win over UAE, which coach Trent Johnston recognised as the team’s most comprehensive performance in a long time. In Yasim Murtaza, Hong Kong has a capable power-hitter and a handy spin-bowling option. The seasoned Babar Hayat at no. 3 and veteran spinner Ehsan Khan gives the side its shape ahead of the big matches against India and Pakistan.
Hong Kong predicted XI: Nizakat Khan (c), Yasim Murtaza, Babar Hayat, Kinchit Shah, Aizaz Khan, Scott McKechnie (wk), Zeeshan Ali, Haroon Arshad, Ehsan Khan, Mohammad Ghazanfar, Ayush Shukla
