India VS Hong Kong

India VS Hong Kong game takes place tonight. The underdogs from Eastern Asia will take on the world leaders of cricket. The cricket community doesn’t seem very excited about the game as they expect India to easily win. But the last time around, Hong Kong played exceptional cricket in Asia Cup 2018. They made sure that they make the Indian team work hard for the victory. So, on a personal note, a great conquest is expected this time around as well. Here is an in-depth look: 

Indian Team Preview Before India VS Hong Kong: 

The Indian cricket team is on the song. They look settled and the team is gelling up well. With that being said, the team will be keen on giving opportunities in the upcoming game. The bench strength can be tested. Another approach can be to try out the new batting template of “all-out attack”. The pace attack will feature all the 3 pacers and the spin department will have Yuzi and Jaddu only. Expect the team to play the same 11 to keep the momentum going.

Expected Top Performer of India VS Hong Kong: 

India VS Hong Kong KL Rahul

KL Rahul is expected to have a great game against Hong Kong. He didn’t have the best of times against Pakistan as he was dismissed for a golden duck but he is always great against the lesser favored teams. His game is exceptional. It is world-class. It is just at times when he runs out of luck that the failures strike him. He can do wonders for the team shortly and against Hong Kong, he is expected to go all-guns-blazing.
