The 4th match of the Asia Cup 2022 between India and Hong Kong should be an easy one for the Men in Blue. India is undoubtedly the favourite in this match. However, India could try out new combinations and new players in this match.

Arshdeep Singh is a young talent who has performed well in the last IPL and has been a part of the Indian T20 squad for some time now. He has played well in the Caribbean tour. A match against a lightweight contender like Hong Kong could see young talents like Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh being tried out.

Let’s analyze the teams and their recent performances to reach a probable conclusion.

India Vs Hong Kong Asia Cup 2022 Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips

India beat their arch-rivals Pakistan by 5 wickets in their 1st game of the Asia Cup 2022 with Hardik Pandya showing all-round performance. The Men in Blue played against Hong Kong in the 2018 Asia Cup on the Dubai International Cricket ground. It was a 50-over ODI format (this year’s Asia Cup is in the T20 format to give the players good practice before the forthcoming World T20 Championship). The match was a close one and India clinched victory in the end. Shikhar Dhawan was the player in the match.

In the recent T20 series against West Indies and Zimbabwe, Indian young talents have shown fine promise. Players like Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, and Axar Patel (he is a stand-by player in the Asia Cup 2022) have been brilliant of late.

Dinesh Karthik has been fabulous since his dream comeback. He is playing the role of a pinch hitter perfectly. Off late, India had been looking for some great finishers. Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, and Ravindra Jadeja form a fierce trio as the lower-order finishers.

On the other hand, Hong Kong had a great season so far. They have led the points table in the qualifying matches. Babar Hayat scored a brilliant 53 off 30 balls against Kuwait. Yasim Mortuza showed his striking skills and can prove to be a real game-changer.

Pitch Stats and Conditions

Dubai International Cricket Stadium is famous for its even pitch. Bowlers can initially extract extra pace and bounce, especially the team bowling first should capitalize on the freshness of the pitch. In the second half of the game, the pitch will die a little and bowlers have to work hard to generate pace. Spinners could become a factor in a night match. However, the team bowling second has to keep the dew factor in mind. Spinners will find it difficult to grip the ball in the second half.

The average batting first score in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium is 141. The team batting second has found it easy to chase and win games. Stats from the last year goes on to reflect the same. Among 13 T20 games that were played at this venue in 2021, and teams batting second won on 12 occasions.

It is India that enters the game as the heavyweight contender. However, Hong Kong did put up a spirited fight against India the last time they met in Dubai. The defiance of Hong Kong in a steep chase showed their strong character and never-say-never attitude. Let’s hope for a fighting game of cricket till the last ball this time as well. Many young guns of Hong Kong will be eager to prove themselves on the match day against India.

We predict an exciting game of cricket with India coming out as the winning side. 

India Vs Hong Kong - Toss Prediction

There is no fuss about the toss in Dubai. If you win the toss, you ask your opposition to bowl second. It is a night match (starts at 7.30 pm IST) and the dew factor will affect the side that will be bowling second. Given the track record of successful run chases on this venue, the captain winning the toss will field first.
