KUW vs HK Dream11 prediction
It’s a top-of-the-table clash between Kuwait and Hong Kong in Asia Cup Qualifiers 2022.
Kuwait, for starters, needed nine off six balls with two wickets in hand. Their No.11 batter Mohamed Shafeeq hit the winning runs to seal a one-wicket win over UAE.
Hong Kong, on the other hand, defended their score of 148 against Singapore.
The upcoming match will be the first meeting between Kuwait and Hong Kong in T20 internationals, however, HK’s squad depth and experience in the format give them a slight edge in the fixture.
KUW vs HK Dream11 team tips for Asia Cup Qualifiers 2022
Top tip: Best batter
Ravija Sandaruwan is the batter to pick, given his status as Kuwait’s leading run-getter in T20Is (856 runs in 25 matches). He hit a 35-ball 34 in his last outing and is most likely to deliver again, keeping in mind his career average of 37.21 and strike rate of 156.77 respectively. The Kuwait star is priced at 9.0 credits, with 63 fantasy cricket points under his belt.
Top tip: Best bowler
Ehsan Khan has been one of Hong Kong’s go-to players in international cricket, and thus, fantasy managers can draft him into their teams as the top bowler. The 37-year-old spinner has 33 career wickets in 29 T20Is, and is coming fresh from a three-wicket haul against Singapore. At 9.0 credits, Ehsan Khan is a proven match-winner and has accrued 105 fantasy cricket points so far.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Hong Kong all-rounder Kinchit Shah is an outright pick for this position. The 26-year-old has earned 69 fantasy points on the back of registering 34 runs and a wicket in the eight-wicket victory over Singapore. Hence, it comes as no surprise that he’ll be popular among fantasy enthusiasts and costs 9.0 credits.
Lastly, Kuwait’s Usman Patel should be selected as your top wicketkeeper. The 22-year-old returned with 21 runs and a caught dismissal from the opening fixture of the Asia Cup Qualifiers 2022, earning him 51 fantasy points. At 9.0 credits, he is worth the investment.
