Surya-Kohli gives India Super-4 ticket after beating Hong Kong in Asia Cup

Today’s IND vs HKG T20 Asia Cup Match Report: In their first match, India defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets.

The Indian cricket team has taken another step toward reclaiming the Asia Cup title. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, the Indian team easily defeated Hong Kong by 40 runs in their second match of the tournament’s group stage. With this, Team India qualified for the Super Four round. India’s winning streak was extended once more in Dubai. With the help of bowlers, Team India advanced to the second round after half-centuries from Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli.

Suryakumar reached the big score

On Wednesday, August 31, the Indian team entered the field with one goal in mind: to secure a spot in the Super Four. This was a simple task for Team India. Suryakumar Yadav batted explosively, allowing the Indian team to reach 192 runs for the loss of two wickets. Suryakumar hit an unbeaten 68 off 26 balls, including six fours and six sixes. Three consecutive and a total of four sixes came in the final over of the innings. Surya and Kohli combined for 98 runs. At the same time, Hong Kong responded with full force with the bat, scoring 152 runs for the loss of only 5 wickets while playing the entire 20 overs.

Rahul is once again let down.

Hong Kong may have lost, but the team performed admirably in both departments. Team captain Nizakat Khan won the toss and chose to bowl first, and captain Rohit Sharma got India off to a fast start, but after his wicket fell in the fourth over, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were unable to keep up the pace of runs. Both struggled to establish boundaries. Hong Kong’s spinners came down hard on him. There was a 56-run partnership between the two, but only 49 balls were used.

Surya’s Dhamaal and Kohli’s Fifty

Rahul played a slower innings than in ODIs, but he stayed at the crease for a long time. India’s score was 94 for 2 wickets by the 13th over, and Suryakumar came in and started the fireworks. Surya deposited fours and then rained runs after sweeping his first two balls. Meanwhile, Kohli reached his half-century in 40 balls, after which Surya hit a hat-trick of sixes in the first three balls of the final over and finished with a fifty in 22 balls. Surya scored 26 runs in the final over. Kohli finished unbeaten on 59 runs from 44 balls (1 four, 3 sixes)

Hong Kong demonstrated the power of the bat.

Following the lethal performance of the Indian bowlers against Pakistan, it was expected that Hong Kong would be easily handled, but this did not occur. Arshdeep Singh took Yasim Mortaza’s wicket in the second over, but Babar Hayat (41 runs) at the crease made it rain. This left-handed batsman smashed the boundary and propelled the team past 50 in the powerplay. However, the runs began to tighten from here. The Hong Kong batsmen struggled to score runs against the spin of Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal.

It had become difficult for Hong Kong to reach the target, so in the 17th over, Virat Kohli was given the ball, and 6 runs were scored. Zeeshan Ali (26 runs, 17 balls) and Scott McHinney (16 runs, 8 balls) took 21 runs off Avesh Khan in the 19th over, hitting two sixes and two fours, while Arshdeep scored two fours in the last over. Definitely got to 152 runs. Avesh Khan (4 overs, 53 runs, 1 wicket) and Arshdeep (4 overs, 44 runs, 1 wicket) were definitely cause for concern for Team India.
