IND vs HK: India will lock horns against Hong Kong in Match 4 of Asia Cup, 2022 on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
The Men in Blue started their Asia Cup 2022 campaign with a win against Pakistan on Sunday. The Rohit Sharma-led team India chased down the victory target of 147 runs in 19.8 overs to claim five wickets over the arch-rivals. They will be looking to continue their winning momentum against Hong Kong.
Speaking of Hong Kong, the team has qualified to this tournament after defeating the likes of Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, and Singapore in the Asia Cup Qualifier.
Making their Asia Cup debut back in 2004, Hong Kong is yet to win a game in the multinational tournament. They will be looking to turn their fortune this year and start the tournament campaign on a winning note.
Speaking of their head-to-head records, the two nations have never engaged in a T20 battle ever before. They have played two ODI matches, both of which were won by India.
