Singapore and Hong Kong will be locking horns in the first match of the Asia Cup Qualifier 2022 at the Al-Amerat Cricket Ground, Oman on Saturday, August 20. A demoralised Singapore would be desperate for a win, having lost eight out of their last 10 games.

They failed to register even a single win in five matches in the World T20 Qualifier 2022. Before that, they tied a four-match T20I series against PNG at 1-1. Singapore were comprehensively outplayed by Malaysia 2-1 in a bilateral three-match T20I series in June.

Hong Kong, on the other hand, have been average on the field. While they would be oozing with confidence having defeated Singapore last month, they do not have any memorable performances to rejoice at as of late. In the T20 Qualifier 2022, Hong Kong have only been able to win two out of their last five completed fixtures. Hong Kong would arguably be the outright favorites on paper, but Singapore can also be expected to spring a surprise.

HK vs SIN Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter

Surendran Chandramohan:

Surendran Chandramohan will certainly be one of the players to watch out for in the upcoming Asia Cup Qualifier 2022. The promising opening batter would be expected to ensure brisk starts for Singapore upfront and at the same time, he would also be hoping to tackle the Hong Kong new ball bowlers.

Probable best bowler

Ehsan Khan:

Ehsan Khan is Hong Kong’s strike bowler who has the ability to provide early and vital breakthroughs. Ehsan also has the ability to keep the batters guessing in the powerplay overs. The Singaporean batters must be cautious in the initial overs and try and survive Ehsan’s first spell to challenge Hong Kong.
