Asia Cup 2018, India Vs Hong Kong The buzz about
Indias recent performances has gone around its
preparation for the big series. The BCCI had
agreed to play back-to-back games, there was a
lot to do with the fact that they were more
likely to play a cooperative nation.
But the match against Hong Kong was considered
more of a practice to the Indians. A match that
was meant to get an idea about the conditions of
the pitch became a bitter lesson for the Indians.
This 26-run win of India in the Asia Cup 2018
wasnt an appropriate win or an ideal practice
for Rohit Sharmas team. Basically, it was a
reality check just before the crucial clash
against Pakistan. This extension in the workout
may affect the players for the match on Wednesday.
By the 20th over for the second innings, the
tension was making a house in the Indian camp,
when the 286-run target was only 156 runs away
from Hong Kong with all 10 wickets in hand and 25
overs were in hand.

Via indianexpress.com Both the Hong Kong
openers, Nizakat Khan and Anshuman Rath were
pacing their innings and the teams score at a
steady rate. Shikhar Dhawans 120-ball 127 almost
gone in vain with Nizakats 92 and Raths 73.
This was the moment when only the inexperience
could fail the opponents battling to justify the
ODI status given to their games for this
tournament.
Via loksatta.com And the inexperience was
reflected in the 5th over when a tired Rath drove
a Kuldeep Yadav-half-volley to Rohit Sharma at
extra-cover on 73 and the 174-run opening stand
was brought to an end. It was the perfect time
when debutant Khaleel Ahmed took the important
wicket of Nizakat as caught him in front of the
stumps on 92 in the next over, it opened the way
and ray of hope for India. Yuzvendra Chahal
finished his bowling figures with 3/46. The
20-year-old Khaleel Ahmed returned figures of
3/48. But the bowlers are well known of the
condition what they have to face under lights on
Wednesday.

Via india.com The Indian batting soon realized
that their batting lineup was not in that
ultimate form. Rohit Sharmas not well timed
lofted shot off off-spinner Ehsan Khan safely
landed in the hands of mid-off. While Ambati
Rayudu in his comeback match scored 70-ball 60 at
?3. and then what followed was a similar story of
the failure of the middle-order in Indias ODI
cricket. India could gather only 48 runs, losing
five wickets in the last 10 overs of the innings.
The middle-order failed the team one more time.

What was expected to be a perfect practice after
Hong Kong elected to field turned out in the
overconfidence resulting in failure out in the
middle! Dinesh Karthik looked good as he scored
33 runs while MS Dhoni couldnt deliver of what
is expected from him as on Ehsan Khans delivery
he gave the edge to the
wicketkeeper to fall for a duck after facing only
three odd deliveries.

As more and more Hong Kong batsmen were taking
the game closer, the happier
the Pakistanis would be. With such a less time we
just hope India will do its best
to dominate in the Asia Cup 2018 match on
Wednesday.
