The 2022 Asia Cup Qualifiers commenced on the 20th of August in the quest of finding the sixth team which will join India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan in the upcoming Asia Cup tournament.

The sixth and final match of the qualifiers will see the two strongest contenders for the spot, UAE and Hong Kong, face off in an epic clash at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground on Wednesday, 24th of August. Hong Kong head into the match after their second match against Kuwait on Tuesday.

Hong Kong squared off against Singapore in the opening fixture of the tournament on Saturday, beating Singapore in a narrow win by eight runs. Kinchit Shah top scored for the Hong Kong side with 34 runs, stabilizing the innings after a terrible start to their innings. But it was the brisk cameos by Zeeshan Ali and Haroon Arshad that propelled them to a competitive score of 148 runs.

HKG vs UAE Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match:

Haroon Arshad

Haroon Arshad has been crucial for Hong Kong’s campaign with his all-round abilities on the field. The power-hitting all-rounder was in sensational nick in the first game against Singapore, blitzing an unbeaten 27 runs off just 14 deliveries to propel the team’s total to a competitive total of 148, which ultimately proved to be the turning point in the match.

Probable best bowler of the match:

Ehsan Khan

The veteran offie from Hong Kong weaved his magic in the first outing of the qualifiers against Singapore, scalping three wickets, and conceding just 20 runs in his four overs. The off spinner’s bowling prowess has been key to their success in the tournament so far.
