The Asia Cup 2022 gets underway on Saturday, August 27 as Sri Lanka lock horns with Afghanistan at the Dubai International Stadium. All eyes will be on the India-Pakistan encounter on the 28th as both teams take the field without the availability of their star pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Shaheen Afridi who have been ruled out due to injuries.
Meanwhile, batting will be a key area of success for all the six participating teams irrespective of whether they set a target or chase down a total. All the team’s batting line-ups will be put to test in the upcoming continental tournament and the batters would need to come out with a competitive mindset in order to get the job done for their respective sides in order to be the best team in the sub-continent.
Without further ado, here’s rating the teams based on their batting for Asia Cup 2022.
6. Hong Kong 4/10
Hong Kong became the sixth and final team to earn a place in the continental tournament after winning the recently-concluded Asia Cup 2022 qualifiers. They overcame the challenges from strong teams like the UAE and Kuwait and will now be playing in their second consecutive Asia Cup.
Since they will now be in the group featuring India and Pakistan, Hong Kong must ensure that they showcase an extraordinary batting performance in order to upset the momentum of these two world-class bowling line-ups.
Skipper Nizakat Khan, Yasim Murtaza, and, Babar Hayat are some of Hong Kong’s high-profile batters and they would be expected to showcase consistent performances in all games. After their dismissal, there could be a huge chance of the Hong Kong batting line-up getting badly exposed.
