Hong Kong have won the toss and decided to field in Dubai in a must-win game against India in Asia Cup . Rohit Sharma handed the ODI cap to Khaleel Ahmed before the toss in what was an expected decision.
Before the big one, India have the campaign starter against a minnows. In an odd scheduling decision, India will play matches on consecutive days – today against Hong Kong before the big one against Pakistan on Wednesday. India would like to make most of the league stage to get their middle order in place – the only flaw for the side.
Hong Kong have had a small window to recover after that disappointing show against Pakistan on Sunday. They would hope to create a dent in the ODI status contest.
