As was the case in another Bangladesh-Sri Lanka thriller yesterday, the winner will go through to the Super 4 while the loser will leave the Asia Cup. If we get anything like the drama we saw in Dubai last night, we could be in for quite the ride with so much on the line.

That being said, Pakistan have enough depth and talent to get the job done. However, Hong Kong showed against India that they are here to offer a challenge, and they competed for much of the contest as Suryakumar Yadav proved to be the big difference. So, Babar Azam’s team can ill-afford to be complacent.

With a lack of T20I cricket this year, this is an important game for Pakistan. Their batting didn’t fire against India, but the bowlers fought well to come close to defending a sub-150 score. If they can combine both, they will join India, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage with some form under their belt.

PAK vs HK Possible Playing XI

There is some doubt over whether Naseem Shah will play. The seamer struggled with cramps during his brilliant spell against India.

Pakistan: 1. Babar Azam (c), 2. Mohammad Rizwan (wk), 3. Fakhar Zaman, 4. Iftikhar Ahmed, 5. Khushdil Shah, 6. Shadab Khan, 7. Asif Ali, 8. Mohammad Nawaz, 9. Haris Rauf, 10. Naseem Shah/Mohammad Hasnain, 11. Shahnawaz Dahani

Hong Kong should stick with the same team that produced an encouraging performance against India.

Hong Kong: 1. Nizakat Khan (c), 2. Yasim Murtaza, 3. Babar Hayat, 4. Kinchit Shah, 5. Aizaz Khan, 6. Zeeshan Ali, 7. Scott McKechnie (wk), 8. Haroon Arshad, 9. Ehsan Khan, 10. Ayush Shuka, 11. Mohammad Ghazanfar

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Pakistan:

  • Babar Azam will be after a big innings. In 12 T20 innings at Sharjah, the Pakistan captain has scored 380 runs at an average of 38.00 and strike rate of 121.79.

  • Asif Ali has a strike rate of 164.14 in 14 innings at Sharjah (238 runs, avg. 29.75).

  • Ehsan Khan took the most wickets in the recent Qualifier tournament (9) at an average of 9.00 and economy of 6.75. Hong Kong’s second-highest wicket-taker in T20Is (39) was then economical against India (0/26).
