IND vs HK Dream11 prediction for Asia Cup 2022
India sits comfortably on top of Group A with two points, having beaten Pakistan by five wickets in their first encounter of the tournament.
A win on Wednesday will guarantee Rohit Sharma and Co. finish as Group A winners.
Hong Kong, meanwhile, will participate in their second straight Asia Cup having featured in the 2018 edition. The team qualified for Asia Cup 2022 after defeating UAE by eight wickets in the final match of the Asia Cup 2022 qualifiers.
This will be the first-ever T20 International fixture between India and Hong Kong and needless to say, going by form and experience, the Men in Blue are the outright favourites to claim victory.
IND vs HK Dream11 team tips for Asia Cup 2022
Top tip: Best batter
India captain Rohit Sharma will be the batter to watch out for. The 35-year-old is currently on the cusp of completing 3,500 runs in T20I cricket and will hope to return to his usual best after making just 12 runs against Pakistan. Rohit is a premium fantasy pick, which is why he’s valued at 10 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, the experienced Ehsan Khan can be a smart pick at 9 credits. Ehsan has registered 39 wickets at an economy rate of 6.06 in 31 T20I matches and will be someone who could grab crucial wickets between overs 8-15 against India.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
India’s Hardik Pandya was the match-winner in the previous Asia Cup 2022 game, he is poised to retain his place as the top all-rounder in fantasy cricket teams. Pandya’s return of 33 not out and 3/25 with the ball against Pakistan earned him 134 fantasy points, and the in-form all-rounder is an excellent pick at 9 credits.
Hong Kong’s Scott McKechnie will be the top fantasy recommendation for the wicket-keeper spot. With 244 runs and 21 dismissals (12 caught, nine stumpings) in 27 T20Is, McKechnie is someone the Asian minnows will look up to as a potential impact player who is likely to have more time with the bat than his opposite number Dinesh Karthik. At 8.5 credits, the Hong Kong gloveman can be a valuable addition to any fantasy team.
