The 4th match of the Asia Cup 2022 will see India facing off against Hong Kong on 31stAugust at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
India beat Hong Kong by 40 runs to qualify for the Super Fours. Batting first India had set a target of 193 runs thanks to fifties from Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli.
The temperature is expected to hover around 35°C on the matchday with 45% humidity and 16 km/hr wind speed. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.
The pitch at Dubai Cricket Stadium frequently produces matches in the 160-170 range and is not ideal for explosive batting. Dubai’s straight boundaries are very short, which the batsman takes full advantage of. There’s also some seam movement and extra bounce on offer here. On this surface, the spinners generally have very little assistance to work with. Chasing seems to be an excellent option on this wicket.
