India vs Hong Kong Asia Cup 2018: The Indian cricket team will start its campaign without regular skipper Virat Kohli now Wednesday. Here is how to watch IND vs HKG ODI.
India vs Hong Kong Asia Cup 2018: In an era where even scores above 350 are not safe, Asia Cup promises to be a tournament of 250s – 280s at best. The wickets in Dubai seem to be slow and will favour the slower bowlers as the tournament progresses. However, the final verdict won’t be out until India plays at least one match. The strongest batting side of the tournament will start its campaign against Hong Kong on Tuesday. India is entering the tournament after a long England tour and is hoping to find the right combination ahead of next year’s ICC ODI World Cup.
The man in focus would be Chennai Super Kings batsman Ambati Rayudu who missed out on the England tour after failing to clear the Yo-Yo Test. A good Asia Cup can help Rayudu take up the number 4 slot for the side – a position that has troubled the team for a while now.
The match will also serve as a practice for the Indian team before Wednesday’s high-profile encounter against Pakistan. Stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma and former captain MS Dhoni who haven’t played international cricket in almost two months would like to find their touch by spending some time on the wicket while KL Rahul will have yet another chance to impress the management as the Karnataka batsman will take Kohli’s number three position.
