HK vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match

Dubai, September 18 at 05:00 PM IST

India set in motion their Asia Cup 2018 campaign against the victors of Asia Cup Qualifiers, Hong Kong on Tuesday.

With the high-voltage India-Pakistan game scheduled the very next day, India may think of not coming out with their full-strength playing 11. At the same time, they cannot take Hong Kong lightly despite their drubbing against arch-rivals Pakistan.

On the other hand, Hong Kong would be hurting after a massive loss against Pakistan in their tournament opener. However, Hong Kong skipper is hopeful of turning things around against India. He said they have “nothing to lose” against India and hopefully rectify the fallings in the next game.

Pitch and weather conditions: The two games of the tournament cannot reflect the exact behaviour of the surface, although it has helped the slower bowlers more.

Last ODI result at the venue: Hong Kong 116 lost to Pakistan 120/2 – 16 September 2018, Asia Cup 2018


HK vs IND Team News

Since India Pakistan fixture is scheduled the very next day, India may try out players and would want to keep some of their players fresh. 

Jasprit Bumrah joined the Indian squad last night. His playing chances are minimal.

Khaleel Ahmed might get a chance in place of Jasprit Bumrah.

Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav are all in contention.

HK vs IND Dream11 Team

Wicket-keeper: You must go with the experienced MS Dhoni. His record speaks volumes and Scott McKechnie bats too lower down the batting order to be considered.

Batsmen: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul are likely to slot in at 1,2.3 positions and you must pick them in your team. From Hong Kong, your best batsmen options are skipper Anshuman Rath, Babar Hayat and Kinchit Shah.

All-rounders: It is unclear if Hardik Pandya or Axar Patel will get the game for India. We suggest you go with Ehsan Khan and Aizaz Khan.

Bowlers: It is unclear who will be India’s pace bowlers as India would want to keep their first-choice fast bowlers fresh for the Pakistan fixture. You can pick Indian spinners Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, for they are likely to play.


Captain/Vice Captain picks:

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul are the best bets to double your fantasy points.


Since India Pakistan fixture is scheduled the very next day, India may try out players and would want to keep some of their players fresh.
