Indian Cricket Team will try to improve their run rate by winning the second match against Hong Kong to be played in Asia Cup 2022 by a big margin. In the match played against Hong Kong, the Indian team can give some new players a chance in the playing XI.
Dubai: Indian cricket team’s star batsman Virat Kohli may have been dismissed after a good start against Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 in the first match of the Asia Cup 2022, but he is sweating hard for the next match in the tournament. Kohli, returning from a month-long break, played an important innings of 35 runs in 34 balls against Pakistan. In this match, India defeated Pakistan by five wickets on Sunday. Now the former India captain shared pictures of his workout session (Virat Kohli Net Practice) on the social media Ku app on Tuesday and told that he is ready for a good innings in the Hong Kong match.
Earlier, Kohli gifted Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf a signed Team India jersey after the Man in Blue defeated the Babar Azam-led side. The BCCI posted a video of the star India batsman gifting an India jersey to a Pakistan pacer and wrote, “The match may be over, but moments like this happen sometimes.”
Meanwhile, India will take on Hong Kong on Wednesday, while Pakistan will take on the Hong Kong team on Friday. Both the teams will try to improve their run rate by beating Hong Kong by a big margin.
In the match played against Hong Kong, the Indian team can give some new players a chance in the playing XI. So that their performance can also be tested before the final match.
The architect of India’s victory in the last match was the Indian fast bowler. This was the first time India took all 10 wickets in a T20 innings by a fast bowler.
So of course the effect of fast pace could be seen in the match and most interestingly, five out of 10 Pakistan wickets came on short pitch deliveries which usually favor Indian fast bowlers in taking wickets in this manner. Not known for ODI and T20 matches.
