For a spot in the Super 4s at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Pakistan will play Hong Kong in the last Asia Cup Group-A match.
It won’t be easy for the Pakistani team given Hong Kong’s previous performance. Hong Kong has recently been in excellent form, taking first place in the qualification competition and going undefeated.
The last thing Pakistan will want to do is write off their performance against India in the last tournament.
Hong Kong will also be aware of Pakistan’s lack of a T20I victory this season. Pakistan has participated in two T20Is this year, losing both of them. In their opening game of the Asia Cup, the men in blue dealt them their second defeat while the first came against Australia.
Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, the Pakistani team’s reliable opening pair, will once more be looked to have a strong start and for big hitters Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah to go off at the finish.
