UAE vs HK Prediction Tips | Who will win Today Match
Kuala Lumpur, September 06 at 07:30 AM IST
United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong meet in the final of the Asia Cup Qualifiers at Kinrara Academy Oval on Thursday.
United Arab Emirates started the tournament with a striking 215-run win over Singapore and followed it with a victory over Nepal. Leading up to the final, they were the most successful side in the competition with four wins in five games.
On the other hand, Hong Kong did not start their campaign on a winning note but bounced back with three wins on the bounce. They need the victory against Nepal in their last league fixture, which they managed to clinch and secure the final berth.
The winner of the fixture will join India and Pakistan in the group stage of the Asia Cup 2018. The other group of Asia Cup comprises Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Pitch conditions: In the games played at Kinrara Academy Oval recently, the batsmen have got the better of the bowlers. This could well be a similar contest.

Our Fantasy picks for UAE vs HK Dream 11 Team
Wicket-keeper – There is very little to separate the two keepers likely to feature here. However, we are going with Abdul Shakoor who chipped in unbeaten 21 in the last outing against Oman.
Batsmen – Anshuman Rath scored a match-winning fifty on a tricky surface to help Hong Kong beat Nepal in the virtual semi-final on Tuesday. Babar Hayat is another Hong Kong batsman who has been prolific. Among UAE batsmen, Chirag Suri and Shaiman Anwar have registered substantial scores with the bat.
All-rounders – Rohan Mustafa‘s all-round effort of 71 runs and 2/31 won UAE the last game against Oman. Ehsan Khan is the Hong Kong’s leading all-rounder in the competition, with plenty of wickets in the bag. Ashfaq Ahmed is another option.
Bowlers – Nadeem Ahmed has been exceptional with the ball in the competition, accounting for 11 scalps. Ahmed Raza has done the job well with the ball for UAE.
Captain and vice-captain picks
Rohan Mustafa, Babar Hayat and Ahmed Raza are the best bets for the captain and vice-captain. The first two have the ability to change the complexion of the game with the bat while Ahmed Raza has been in ominous form with the ball.
